“30th Wedding anniversary”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

We booked this hotel based on location and price both were very good.10 min walk into St Helier. The room was a bit dated, however was kept really clean by the maids daily visit. The food was exellent (we had half board) and the staff were 5 star. Because it is only a small hotel the staff can afford to be friendly and attentive. Bar prices very reasonable no big shock at checkout. Spa and steam room were good but pool small and a bit cool. If we go back to Jersey I will be booking the Monterey again.

Thank you for choosing us for your 30th Anniversary special break in Jersey. Congratulations on your special occasion.

We are delighted that you would choose our hotel again. This feedback is very much appreciated.

Many of our bedrooms are more traditional in style; especially when compared to our highly contemporary bar and restaurant areas.

Thank you for your feedback and for your confidence in our team at the Monterey, Jersey.

We booked here because of a flyer sent to us by Jersey Plants Direct offering a short break.
So glad we booked. The hotel staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. The superior rooms are very spacious and comfortable. We were on Bed & Breakfast only, the breakfasts were really good with a choice to suit everyone. The hotel is a 15 min stroll from a good selection of restaurants. An excellent place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room away from the road.

If you are unable to eat from half board menu there is no alternative unless pay again for a bar meal!!!!!! Staff were unsympathetic to needs ie can't eat cheese all 3 courses had cheese do not like duck or steak as vegetarian and can't eat fish salad was either ham cheese or fish!! If already paid why pay again. Room was as others said tired and when in ensuite just a shower no bath had told there would be both, smoke from room next door comes through extractor fan so does not extract!!! And makes it unpleasant if leave door open bedroom smells of stale smoke. Only 1 electric socket so unable to charge phone and have light on or kettle on at same time etc ground floor opens on to swimmg pool great for summer but old drafts doors for winter.

From the moment we arrived until we left our 10 day stay was 1st class. Diane and all the staff looked after us superbly - nothing was too much trouble. From our room to the restaurant food everything was impeccable. A big thank you to the management and all the staff for making our 40th Anniversary really special.

Room Tip: We chose a superior double room

We are so delighted that from your bedroom to the restaurant food, you found that everything was impeccable - especially so given that this was such an important anniversary break for you.

We do find that, as a rule, slightly longer stays do help for guests to properly settle in to the hotel and your ten day break seems to prove this rule. Thank you for your comments.

It is delightful that your 40th Anniversary was really special. Thank you for your kind comments.

This is the 2nd time I have stayed at this Hotel. It is a very welcoming Hotel with all the staff being really friendly and courteous. The food is great, rooms are spaceous, comfortable and clean with all amenities needed. They have refurbished the Restaurant and Bar, it looks lovely.
Location is faboulous, within 5 minutes walk to the Town and plenty of car parking if you have a hire car.

Thank you for your comments and feedback on our bedrooms and catering. This is very much appreciated.

Our location is popular. Future guests will benefit from the fantastic new £10 Million investment in a new public 'Town Park', situated between the hotel and the town itself. This free facility opened this past week. Do ask reception for its location as it is fabulous with its water features, child play areas, grass and benches for public enjoyment. A real bonus for hotel guests - Jersey's newest attraction.

We are so pleased that this is the second time that you have stayed at our hotel and that you feel that our staff have been friendly and courteous.

Thank you for these comments.

The minute we arrived at the Monterey Hotel and was greeted by the receptionist I knew I had chosen the right hotel for a family weekend celebrating my husband's 60th birthday. Our room was big, airy and comfortable and when we arrived back to our room after a day out on Dave's actual birthday,their was a bottle of champagne and two champagne flutes waiting for us, with the hotels compliments and wishing Dave a happy birthday, such a lovely gesture. All the staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. Well done Monterey and thank you for such a lovely and memorable weekend, we certainly will be back and would recommend the Monterey Hotel.

Before booking this hotel I was very sceptical of the previous reveiws. However, as soon as we walked through the reception on our arrival we were greeted with a friendly and professional receptionist, who quickly sorted a problem we had with our reservation. I should add that the problem was not with the hotel but the booking agent. We stayed at the hotel for four nights, the room was spotlessly clean, the meals in the restaurant were excellent and all the staff, without exception friendly and showed pride in their work. We could find not one thing that we were not 100% satisfied with. Can fully recommend the hotel for a very pleasant and relaxing holiday experience.
