Just returned from 5 days in Jersey staying at The Monterey Hotel. If you are looking for a swanky flash, lively hotel this may not be for you BUT if you are looking for VALUE FOR MONEY - a good location, spotlessly clean, excellent service, tasty food, good lesiure facilities at no extra cost (2 pools, & mini gym) etc. then this could well be for you. Our spacious room was unpretentious, slightly dated but again lovely and clean. Suprisingly no duvets but having sweated and then frozen alternately in other hotels when the weather has been warm, this may be why and you'll be ony too grateful to have a crisp clean cotton sheet to sleep under!
Dinner at the hotel was available in both the restaurant and bar at very reasonable cost (- certainly cheaper than eating out anywhere else). In our case we opted for the bar meals which were more than sufficient and very good - (recommend the Jersey fishcakes). On a couple of nights there was light entertainment too. You may be thinking of eating out in town in St Helier in the evening (as was our inital intention), but word of warning the local buses STOP RUNNING after about 6pm so you'll have to leg it back from town, which if you've already been on your feet all day may be the last straw and you'll be only too gratefuL to have chosen a hotel with 2 very reasonably priced dinner options.
DON'T FORGET TOO to claim your freebies before or at reception if you booked online (for 3+ days) = a free bottle of wine and 2 x Jersey (tourist attractions) Passes for 2 days for the price of 1 (a saving of £32). TOP MARKS to the Manager and staff of this hotel who were quietly unassuming but sparklingly efficient!
