We spent five days at the hotel and having read some of the reviews beforehand were slightly concerned about what it would be like. However we were well satisfied and felt it was good value for money - we were in one of the front seaview rooms with balcony on the second floor. which I had particularly requested because this was a special occasion visit to Jersey. It was one of the rooms which had not yet been refurbished and was certainly dated and needed upgrading but it was very clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was bright, clean and functional but certainly in need of attention. The hotel is on a very busy road and the noise was intrusive particularly when sitting on the balcony, however it wasnt a major issue and the views were lovely. The staff were very friendly and helpful and responded immediately to any requests for help. Renovation work in the hotel caused problems with the fire alarm but we were always contacted and reassured that everything was OK. We only had bed and breakfast and usually had the full English which was well cooked and plentiful. This is a very traditional hotel which reminded me of seaside hotels in the 60's and 70's. Its location is great and we were able to walk into the town or harbour area easily. I would recommend it to others but perhaps not families - it is more suited to older couples. However that view may be coloured by the fact that we were having an out of season break and the hotel was very quiet with only older couples staying during the period we were there. A lovely warm conservatory area at the front of the hotel provided a very pleasant sitting area.
