We stayed for 3 nights during the first weekend of October 2009. Our premier double room was available for us at 8.50am, so we were really pleased - a great start to the break! Check in was fast and the reception staff extremely helpful in advising us about local information. Our room was spacious, clean and modern and a lovely view across to the harbour and liberation square. We felt the room could have had a mini bar, just a little gripe though.
We stayed at the Hotel Saturday night for an evening meal and were very pleased with the quality and choice available. The Breakfasts had plenty of choice - hot/cold (excellent full English or Continental) and you really couldnt fault it. The Pomme D`or had a touch of class and elegance about it without being too stuffy.
We hired a car to tour the island from a local hire firm called Sovereign who were very good and gave us helpful advice on places to visit. It was a shame there was no car park at the hotel. We had to park 1/4 mile at a long stay open car park, but had no trouble parking there. Jersey uses a paycard voucher system, cards can be bought at reception.
Trips - The Durrell Conservation Wildlife Park was well worth a visit, as was St Brelade, the Corbierre lighthouse and the Jersey War Tunnels - quite an interesting Island!
As it was our 1st Anniversary we ate out at Little Italy and the menu was quite extensive. The meal my wife & I had was fantastic - best fillet steak we had ever tasted and friendly service too.
We also dined at the Candlelight Restaurant nearby (Kensington Place) and had another lovely meal in more intimate surroundings - another place we would definately recommend.
Overall, we thouroughly enjoyed our stay - a 30 minute flight from Cardiff AIrport at 7.25am, clearing customs, collecting luggage at the airport, catching the local bus to the Pomme D`or Hotel and actually inside our Hotel room by 8.50am! We cannot wait to come back to Jersey and another stay at the Pomme D`or Hotel.
