Excellent value for money. For a 1 star hotel it was very good indeed.Spotlessly clean, the rooms were very comfortable and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Our fellow guests were fairly elderly, but that seemed to be the case on most of the island, and in all honestly, so what?. The sister hotel (the Norfolk) was also very good. Excellent staff and the evening meal there was good as well. Beautiful Island. Would definately go again. The only downside was 90% of restuarants were very expensive with similar menus, and lots of focus on 3 course set menu's which you don't always want. Problem solved by Bella Italia and the Norfolk.
Public Transport was good.Everything was on time, and the people were generally helpful and friendly. Highlights of the holiday Gorey Castle, St Brelades Bay, Howard Davis Park, and the staff at both the Norfolk and the Villa Isis.

Room Tip: Maybe better at the back, due to a main road outside, but we didn't notice it being too loud.

A very friendly clean place.
Good value for the money paid.
Having your evening meal at the sister hotel along the road well worth going to.
Traffic needs to be slowed down on the road just outside the hotel,
it was just like a racing track glad we never hired a car it would have been a nightmare.

Little disappointed with our holiday to Jersey.
The hotel was OK but we had asked for a room overlooking the park not realizing there is a main road between the hotel and the park opposite.The noise from the road and the water tank which seemed to be constantly filling up over night made us reach for ear plugs.Back rooms look out on the courtyard garden. If you are early to bed you may find this noisy due to drinkers in the lounge.
The room was a good size and bathroom clean. Not much room to make a cup of tea and TV could not get many channels also sound did not work on ITV.
Breakfast was served between 8:30-9:30am. No continental breakfast just cereal, fruit, juice and cooked. Toast could have been toasted longer and brown bread would have been nice.
Steps down to the breakfast room and into the hotel not great if you have problems walking or heavy cases.
Evening meals are optional at the Norfolk Hotel. This looks further away when being dropped off because of the one way system but is only 10 minutes. Staff very friendly food OK but not exceptional but it saves a long walk into Town to find a restaurant.
We were a little disappointed with our first holiday to Jersey. St Helier has a lot to offer but it is also very busy with road traffic.The buses however, were good,and on time, although the explorer gets very busy.The open top buses were really good and we enjoyed the commentary given on the journeys we took.The sea front was not attractive and covered with green.We saw very few people on the beach considering it was the school holiday period.Beaches further around the coast were much nicer.We did use the swimming pool in the Norfolk hotel. No changing rooms available so used the toilet to change in. Free use of loungers and towels.

A cheap hotel that is very good. Room large and quiet (although front of hotel may be noisier) and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful and a good breakfast.
Limited parking if you bring or hire a car. You can park at nearby Norfolk (if you can work out the one way system to get there) but i had a bit of trouble with an unhelpful staff member there when i needed to on the one occassion no space at Isis.
Opposite Howard Davis Park which is nice for a quiet walk.

Room Tip: Rooms at back probably quieter as busy road at front.
