This hotel has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Genuine, fiendly staff, spotless rooms, an unbeatable location and views that will spellbind you!
We have been here three times now and each time the Windmills hasnt disappointed us by maintaining its high standards with the personal touch. We have stayed in other hotels on Jersey but after staying at the Windmills, we dont need to look any further now when booking. Highly recommended!

A wonderful hotel with excellent staff, especially in the dining room. Restaurant food was very good and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was just the most amazing room with views to die for! Eveything was spotlessly clean throughout hotel. Would certainly recommend it !

We visited Jersey for a relaxing break and Windmills Hotel suited our needs. Our room was spotless, the view superb. The dinner menu was delicious, so much so that we chose to dine at the Hotel for the majority of the evenings we were there. Lovely staff in attendance at meal times, always with smiles. Reception were helpful in providing tourist information and there were loads of brochures to choose various activities. We would love to return possibly next year. Getting to Jersey from Suffolk via ferry did prove to be a long journey, but having done it, perhaps next time we will fly rather than drive.

I stayed at the Windmills Hotel for 14 days in June and found it a very pleasant and relaxing experience. All the staff was so polite and helpful. There was ample car parking and the view from the Patio and restaurant, overlooking St Brelades Bay, was breathtaking. The experience was not cheap, but worth the extra. The hotel is located on a steep hill which some people might find difficult to negotiate. As I was in a single room I did not have a balcony, which would have been nice to have. The restaurant ran like clockwork for breakfast and evening dinner.

Wonderful location but tiring walk back from the beach! Quite a lot of noise from landing above. Bed creaked! Fried egg under-done on 1st morning - if you want food well cooked remember to ask! Reception and Bar covered by 1 staff in evenings. Toilet / WC light behind sliding door - inconvenient in middle of night!!! A quite nice Hotel but, again, had more of a 'foreign' feel than British. With unemployment so high in Jersey why do the Hotels all seem to employ foreign staff?

We appreciate all reviews of the Windmills Hotel and respect the opinions of guests, both negative and positive. In fact many improvements arise because of them BUT on this occasion I find the reference to "foreign" staff offensive and ill informed. 80% of Jersey hotels operate on a strictly seasonal basis making the recruitment of permanent Jersey residents virtually impossible.
In any case we recruit the best staff available regardless of nationality!! not to do so would be racial discrimmination!! I am very proud of all our staff at the Windmills, endorsed by the comments of the vast majority of our guests. The other points raised in the review, within our power to change, are being looked into.

My friends and I planned a trip to Jersey to relax and unwind...this being the main objective, we decided to stay in a hotel out of St Helier.
I came across the Windmills Hotel whilst browsing the web and after a quick call, we were all booked in.
After receiving a warm welcome by the hotel owners, the porter gave a short tour of the hotel. We were gobsmacked when we saw the view. In my 34 years, I have never seen a view like it. The terrace area allowed guests to enjoy the view to it's full potential and the garden and pool area were immacualty kept.
The rooms were to a great standard, as were the meals. The restaurant staff could not do enough to please.
I would have no quarms in recommending this hotel to everyone I know.
