Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We have visited the beautiful Island of Jersey a few times now both to work and on holiday and St. Brelades Bay Hotel is the best Hotel we have stayed at. An amazing view over the bay, and excellent room which suited us perfectly. The staff were very welcoming, helpful and friendly at all levels, an important element to make you feel comfortable and relaxed on holiday. The breakfasts were excellent and the evening meal, lunches and food in the terrace restaurant were faultless. The Fitness centre, pool, spa etc., were amazing -' best in Jersey', a local informed us. We will be back.

Room Tip: Paying extra for a room with sea view and balcony is worth every penny.

A last minute decision to stay overnight following a party at the Hotel. A very good welcome all round. We enjoyed the facilities and the room was excellent with a fantastic view over the bay. The only thing I would have liked is to be served at the table for breakfast. A menu on the table would have been great too. The service in the dining room was limited I felt-but everyone was very polite and amenable.It was very relaxed and pleasant all round. The staff in the health club were very helpful. It was a shame we could only stay one night

We have just got back from a wonderful long weekend at St Brelades Bay Hotel. The only improvement for us would be breakfast starting at 7.30am rather than 8am but I hope that the early-rising stage of life that we are living through with three boys 5 and under will be short-lived and by the time we return next year this won't be an issue! The hotel was perfect for us. Great facilities for both adults and children, indoor and outdoor pools and play areas. The family room had a separate room with bunk beds in which we could also fit the cot so all 3 slept peacefully together after days spent playing on the beach, in the sea and in the pools. The sports club has a fabulous gym, indoor pool and jacuzzi, spa and fitness classes. All 5* in our opinion. St Brelades itself is great for families, several choices of restaurants on the sea front from Pizza Express for the kids to a lovely meal at Oyster Box. The hotel have babysitters as well as baby listening and all of the staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: There are several different room configurations for families which should cater for everyone.

We stayed here after a wedding. I would like to say how wonderful the service was throughout the day. The next day we stayed round the pool and it felt like we were actually on holiday with the pool bar etc. The only gripe I have is the price of a large glass of wine which is eight pounds and a small glass is only 125 ml which is strange ! I just don't see how this can be justified. As a person who lives in jersey I expect to pay around five or six pounds. I know it is a hotel but why is the wine so expensive when beer is around the same price as everywhere else. I know it is a persons choice what they buy,but I do feel these prices could put people off spending money in the hotel, which is a shame.

Our criteria changed 5 years ago when we had our first child, the needs of a holiday location and what it offered, as you can imagine, totally changed.

Most places we saw offered kids clubs. Not what we wanted at all for a few reasons. (1) Most kids clubs are for kids from 5 years old upwards, no good when we were travelling with a child under 5, (2) Both my wife and I work throughout the year, on a holiday we wanted quality family time together with our child, so to fob our child off with someone else and a bunch of other kids during the day was exactly the opposite of what we wanted (3) Although we wanted to spend time together as a family during the day, in the evening, when our child was asleep, we still wanted to then be able to enjoy some quality adult time together.

We then discovered St Brelades Bay Hotel. Reviews seemed good, babysitting service in the evenings was available so we booked and went. Best decision we have made.

Travel is easy, either ferry from mainland UK ports, or a 50minute flight from all south England airports. No jet lag, no faffing about with tedious transfers, no currency exchange rates to be ripped off by, simple and straight forward.

The nice thing about Jersey is that its a tax haven, plenty of wealthy people live there and as a result the service industry is of a very good quality in most places throughout the island. Also although a part of the UK it is pretty self govorning and stands for no mucking about. I suppose you could call Jersey a police state really, but its very plesant.

No rowdy stag nights, hen do's, annoying drunk people tearing up the place. Thats all fine if I'm away with the lads, but Jersey is a step backwards from the madness that the UK seems to embrace as of late. Its a real breath of fresh air.

Upon checking into St Brelades Bay hotel, we noticed that people checking out were re-booking their accomodation for the following year, a VERY good sign.

It is right opposite the beach, which is beautiful, more importantly it is a beach that NEVER gets over crowded, worth paying double for. South coast of England and lots of 'brit spots' throghout the med are just rows of sardines, I cant think of anything worse. We can relax, swim, go snorkelling, canoeing, kich a footbal about, run round freely, fly a kite and theres no people to trample in your way. It is such a luxury to be away from the masses that flock to beaches and line up like penguins for thier little spot of sand, that is the real beauty of Jersey.

The hotel when we first went 5 years ago was under the ownership of 3 siblings, it had been in the family for generations and there were rumours of them selling it on to some guy who made his millions in the football industry who was hoping to buy it as a business to occupy his daughter. Of course the regulars (which we have now become) at the time of our first trip were having a panic about how things might change. Humans are humans, we cant get our heads around change so there was the usual scarremongering worries about what the next few years would bring.

Well it did change hands and its still ticks all the same boxes that it did before the take over. Mostly the changes were a really good choice. The rooms and hotel itself underwent a very refreshing refurbishment, the character has still been retained, thank goodness, however it is more fresh and refined than it was before. Be it sea view rooms, family rooms or garden view rooms the decor is clean fresh and spacious. The service from the staff is still top notch and most of the same faces are still there offering the same degree of service that we had become accustomed too. I like the fact that at breakfast you can go do the buffet style thing if you want, but if you prefer, as we do, you waiters are still available to deal with it all for you offering impecable table service.

Before the change of owners there was a gorgeous amount of gardens offering secluded relaxing areas as well as the areas to gather around the pool and sit, recline, sunbathe, chill, etc. Althought the gardens are still a lovely feature, and spacious enough, some losses to the gardens were made. There were swings and a big hillside slide, a large lawned chess area, and lots more nooks and crannies to wander around and relax in. Thes losses have made way for a fitness gym and an indoor pool. It is realistic to understand this had to be done as the new owners planned to open all year round as opposed to just during summer. Last year when there were a few rainy days that indoor pool was a major asset.

The lunchtime restaurant/cafe that overlooks the pool is lovely, the menue good, and if you want a few dozen fresh oysters (not on the menu) for lunch, simply let the hotel know with suitable time and they will organise it for you, simple, effective and tailored towards making your stay exacctly what you want.

The new pool is very nice, with a kids pool near it too. I must say though I think the old set up was much better and less slippery. The kids pool was further away so there was less noise near the main pool, but again this is Jersey, there really isnt noise to complain about, as people seem to conduct themselves and their offspring, fortunatley, in a more civilised way. The old pool and its diving board really was a spectacular feature and thats the only thing that I think they have shot themselves in the foot with, not to say the new pool isnt good, as it is, but the old one WAS better. Rumour has it they built the new pool, to a lesser depth, to avoid the legal need to supply a lifeguard, however there were so many complaints about this that they reinstated a lifeguard. I have no idea how much truth there is to this, you know what rumours and tittle tattle can be like from all people. The old kids pool is now a sand pit, so swings and roundablouts on that one.

THE BEST THING ABOUT THIS HOTEL IS THE EVENING RESTAURANT!!!

I could not believe last year that the restaurant was not full to its usual level. Apparently people book B&B then scoot off for junky pizzas in the evening to save a few quid. Ridiculous!!!! They are missing the best bit of the hotel!!!

Our child eats a proper cooked meal in the restaurant at 6pm, PROPER COOKED FOOD NOT FIZZ AND JUNK!!!!, We then get him ready for bed, we get dressed for dinner (YES dressed for dinner, its nice to make the effort, you can wear jeans in McDonalds THIS IS A RESTAURANT!)

The baby sitter arrives from 8pm to midnight (we have had the same lovely lady every year for the last 5 years) then my wife and I go to the bar for a cocktail, sit and look out over the bay, then go into the resataurant for a FANTASTIC 5 course evening meal. I am particular about food and for £32.50 a head it is not only superb value for money but also of a superb quality. Veal, Venison, Duck, Lobster Thermidor, the menus changes every day, with an excellent choice (4th course being the main) for dark meat or white meat, or seafood (or even vegie) . It cannot be beaten. Rarely do we venture into the al a carte menu as there is often no need to due to the quality and choice on offer with the ever changing 5 course menu.

As we enjoy good food, good wine, good atmoshere and surroundings we see people trudge back from having their trip to the pizza parlour and sympathise for their daft decision to save a few quid. Twice aweek desmond (a smashing fella in his 90's) turns up to play the piano in the background, just the cherry on top for a lovely evening.

TOP TIP: FOR GOODNESS SAKE IF YOU STAY AT ST BRELADES BAY HOTEL USE THE RESTAURANT IN THE EVENING, to not do so is like going to New York and not seeing the empire state building....Its your loss!!!!!

We have fun relaxing informal days and enjoy that you dress for dinner, tie isnt prerequisite, but its nice to see people making the effort, it makes it more special and enjoyable.

The new year black tie event is brilliant too.

Sumamry: Peacefull, relaxing, civilised escape for those wanting a chilled romatic break or a family holiday without chaos.

Room Tip: Balcony sea view is wonderful, but all rooms are of a good quality.

We had a lovely time in St. Brelades Bay hotel. As soon as we arrived we were told that we would really enjoy the room they had for us. They were absolutely right - we had been upgraded free of charge. The suit was perfect. We had a great view of the bay, a huge bed, immaculate room. We had a 3-course meal in the evening, with lovely wine to top it off. They forgot to bring us our petit fours along with our coffee, but everything else with the service was flawless.
Breakfast the next day was in our room (for an additional £2.50 each I believe). The quality and quantity was amazing and we would definitely do this again.
We came along for the residents special offer. Next time we will make time to use the spa facilities.

The best Hotel I have ever stayed in. Service was brilliant. The rooms were in very good condition and the bed was extremely comfortable. Fantastic location. The Hotel is right by the beach so swimming in the sea was a must. There was also a lovely outdoor pool in the lovely grounds. A briliant fitness centre with another pool - indoor and heated and spa facilities. Spotlessly clean.

Room Tip: The seaview rooms are very nice but can be noisy if there is a party on but it did not bother us and...
