We stayed here recently with some friends for a short break in Jersey. The hotel is a fair distance out of the main town, not really within walking distance for a night out but we got taxis down and back and it only cost about £6 each way. Having said that the hotel offers evening meals and provides a variety of entertainment in the bar. The hotel is set in lovely grounds that are very well maintained which would be a lovely place to relax in, but unfortunately we didn't have time due to our short stay. We found most staff to be very welcoming and helpful especially on reception and in the dining room (we only had breakfast but there was a good selection on the buffet table, including porridge, with tea and coffee served to the table along with your choice of cooked breakfast - all very nice thank you): The exception was a female member of staff serving in the bar who was brusque in her manner whenever she served us and on one occasion kept turning the bar lights on and off when we were the only guests left and talked with a colleague in a foreign language as if she was complaining about us! She is the reason I have not given 5 stars on this review, along with the lack of toiletries provided in the rooms. There were 2 small bars of hand soap and 2 sachets of shampoo which my partner tried to use but couldn't manage to open. The toilet roll was also not very good quality (sorry but that is a bug bear of mine!). Other than that our room was a good size, decor and furniture a bit dated, but clean. I noted the only form of heating in the room appeared to be an electric bar on the wall so not sure how warm the rooms would be in the cooler months. Lovely view over the gardens and ample supply of tea/coffee with kettle. I would recommend doing a round the island tour which the hotel will book for you with pick up from reception. We thoroughly enjoyed the day and our driver (Jamie on Waverley Tours) talked all day about the island and kept us entertained. To sum up though, a very nice hotel with mostly friendly staff.
