Let me start by saying that the guest house is across the road from the beach and a steady 10-15 minutes walk into St Helier, so the location is fantastic. Upon arriving, we were greeted by the lovely, friendly owners and allocated room 14 on the second floor (a climb that may not suit the infirm!). The room was a nice double; a good size and very clean. The bathroom is compact but it has a roomy shower stall and the sink being in the actual room meant we weren't under each other's feet when trying to get ready to go out. The sheets on the bed were very clean but the bed itself has maybe seen better days - flat, old pillows and feeling bedsprings through the mattress left us feeling tired and achy in the mornings....having said that, the fantastic full English breakfast soon perked us up! Cooked to perfection, generous portions (4 slices bacon!), variations (beans one day, then hash browns)...couldn't fault the food.
This Guest house has a popular bar and restaurant, and seems to always be quite busy. Sometimes these sounds drifted up to us, even on the second floor at the back of the property, but for the main part, we had peace and quiet.
The price was extremely reasonable for the location and we thought it was brilliant value for money. Almost a 5 out of 5 but the poor sleep quality and the fact they provide a kettle and cups but no tea or coffee lost it a star! Would I return? Absolutely. Would I recommend? Definitely. The owners are lovely, genuine people who always had a kind word and we felt very much at home, and it seemed evident everyone else did too.
