“Great location & hospitality”
Reviewed July 10, 2012

We stayed three nights at the Moorings hotel in June. We found the staff very accommodating and polite. The location (double, sea view room) was amazing and a complimentary upgrade was very welcome. It was just a shame the weather wasn't a little warmer for us to enjoy the opportunity to have a drink or two and watch the world go by on the balcony. In conclusion, the food, hotel, location and staff were excellent. The only sad comment I have about our stay was the Dolphin hotel/pub up the road which was very noisy. Whilst the music stopped around 11.00 pm, its just a shame the party goers were not considerate of the noise level and the impact it has on local residents/holiday-makers. Breakfast was fantastic, as was the food in the bistro. I would recommend this hotel and stay again.

Room Tip: Room - double sea view is worth the upgrade.

I haven't stayed at the Moorings - but recently ate in their restaurant. The set menu (of 5 courses) is only £21. An absolute bargain. The choice is very good and the quality very high. This isn't pub food nor is it fine dining - possibly somewhere inbetween. I had a delicious pate starter followed by a ver suculent steak and perfectly cooked pear tart. I would challenge anyone to come to Jersey & find better value than this. the staff are very friendly and the pace of the serving of the courses is excellent. Areas to improve - the carpet has certainly seen better days and was a bit annoyed that the bottle of wine I had ordered was controlled by the wine waiter. So had to wait until he noticed that my glass was empty until it could be filled again - very strange and unnecessary practice.

Reading posts before booking a hotel leaves me little opportunity to post critical reviews myself. There's no dilemma with The Moorings though as praise is the keyword of this particular missive. The first impression is the location on the leisurely quayside of the lovely village of Gorey. It's really beautiful, and sea view rooms had us appreciating it to the full from morning to night. We had a single and a large double, each very well appointed and comfortable with thoughtful touches thrown in. A lounge, intimate bar and the choice of a tastefully furnished dining room, a bistro or outside terrace all epitomise the orientation towards all enjoying the experience. The food is just superb. I'm going to try to review the restaurant separately as it really does merit it. Suffice to say here that breakfasts feature both a comprehensive choice and quality ingredients, so well prepared and presented. And the people? Warm, friendly, efficient and really looking after guests without exception. Joanne and her international team provide the best of hospitality across the board and the individual approach to guests of various age groups is quietly in evidence. In summay, a fabulous place, in a fabulous location in a village with enough going on and on the beautiful island of Jersey with its manifold attractions. What's not to like? Highly recommended. May see you there.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms have a fabulous outlook. Room 14 on the top floor is very spacious. There is no lift...

We stayed 2 nights at The Moorings, eating there on the Saturday evening. We would have had something to eat on the Sunday as well but had been out for the day and no food was being served by the time we got back. As this was around 21:00 I think the inability to rustle up so much as a sandwich is fairly poor in a hotel as expensive as this. Other quibbles include no offer to help with our bags despite having to climb several flights of stairs and, inexplicably, one pair of slippers in the bedroom. The welcome at reception was also fairly lukewarm. On the plus side the food was good although I didn't think the breakfast lived up to its reputation. Our room had a great view although our enjoyment of it was marred by the very loud and very awful karaoke from a nearby bar. Quiet and peaceful it wasn't. All in all a reasonable experience but not one I will look to repeat or recommend to others.

I stayed at the Moorings Hotel for 3 nights as part of a walking holiday with friends. The setting is lovely, right on Gorey Pier. I was upgraded on arrival to a sea view room. The room was well appointed, very comfortable, good quality linen, and with a modern well-equipped bathroom with bath and power shower. Fluffy towels, slippers and complimentary Gilcrest Soames toiletries added an extra touch. Breakfast was excellent - real coffee, help yourself buffet, good selection on cereals, fruit, Jersey yoghurts, and fruit juice, croissants and toast, followed by an extensive choice of dishes cooked to order, all with local Jersey products.

Service was professional and attentive. Dinner was also good, with a choice of table d'hote and extensive a la carte menu.

I would definitely recommend and hope to return with my partner.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view, the sunsets are wonderful.

Our room was clean, comfortable, Interestingly decorated, and with a balcony which would have been much appreciated in better weather. It had a wonderful view over the historic harbour to the bay beyond, which changed dramatically with the tide. Everything was provided in the room, and the staff were friendly and unobtrusively attentive. Dinner and breakfast were both excellent, and the wine list was very good.

Room Tip: Ask for a front room if you like a sea view, a back room for a glimpse of the castle.
