Stunning views, beautful quiet location, but yet only 2 minutes from Gerald Durrell's zoo, 15 minutes from Gorey Castle & 20 minutes from the capital St. Helier.
The staff were very pleasant & helpful. Thomas, Pav & Fran went out of there way to make our stay a special one.
A very rare sight, infact a first, was to see a member of staff arriving on a speed boat, across the harbour, to serve breakfast(Fran!). What a joy, made us all laugh.
Thankyou very much for making my Mothers' holiday a very special & memorable one.
Well done x

This hotel is in a fab location with beautiful views over the bay. There is no traffic noise at all and no road between the hotel and the sea. It's worth paying extra for a seaview. Some rooms have balconies and it worth asking for one as the sound of the sea is mavellous. We ate Bouley Bay Lobster in the restaurant which was delicious and well cooked. On the downside the hotel has an unloved feel with no evidence of a "hands on" manager. Having said that most of the staff were very polite and helpful. We also heard rumours that there are plans to knock the hotel down and build flats on the site ( which would be a real shame) which might account for the lack of attention to detail on the room maintainance. We used this as a base to walk round the island using the bus service which stops right outside the hotel.

We saw an advert for this hotel in a newspaper and, at first glance the price for flights and hotel seemed to cheap. We were a bit sceptical but booked anyway. We arrived on a Saturday evening late. When we woke on on Sunday mornings to the incredible views outside our window we could not believe our luck. The views and the location are genuinely breath taking. During the week our room was kept very clean, we received great service from the staff, excellent food (we were on half board and so glad we pre-booked the evening meals as they were delicious). We cannot fault this hotel in any way. We recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The hotel is 2.9 miles from the town. There is a cheap, regular, approx hourly bus but we hired a c...

It's a shame they are running this hotel down due to its closure .. and it shows (apparently they are making it into flats but dates to when this is happening has not been confirmed - hence no money being spent on it!!!) as it could be a truely wonderful place to stay. It was expensive for a very basic, dated room, bed was old but just about ok to sleep in, tv rarely worked due to no signal, bathroom was cleaned every day with fresh towels and floor hoovered .. the bed was rarely made and linnen changed only once during my two week stay. Walls to rooms are quite thin! Gardens and pool area not looked after although the pool was clean and well used. Breakfast was basic but ok, didn't stay for an evening meal so can't comment. Wifi only in lounge which closed when the bar closed at 10.30/11pm or reception. The staff were very friendly and helpful and yes parking is an issue but then it is a very popular bay!

Although it is a dated hotel that needs money spent on it to update it this unfortunately just isn't going to happen, which is sad as it is quite special ... and yes there were issues but I enjoyed my stay very much ... it's a wonderful location with so much going on ... I would happily stay there again ... if it hasn't closed when I next go over .......

Rooms smelled so badly it was hard to breath.

Car parking is difficult because the hotel allows non-residents (day trippers to the restaurant) to use the carpark. Non- resisdents also allowed to use the pool.

Wall paper peeling.

Not clean.

Difficult to sleep because walls and floors so thin, one can hear every noise from other customers.

How the management could allow this to happen is beyond belief because the location is great. There must be another agenda on the go.

I have stayed in some very cheap and dodgy places and this was one of the worst and it certainly was not cheap.

I would have rather slept on a beach and that is not a joke.

Did not eat at hotel owing to silly prices.

Room Tip: Don't stay here. If you do get a sea view and bring a dust mask or gas mask.

Stayed with three children for five nights. Dinner on one night in hotel was very poor. Some guests had dogs in dining room. Very uncomfortable beds. Decor was dated as was the salmon pink bathroom suite and shower curtain in the bath. Kids enjoyed the outdoor pool and views were very good. Very relaxed place but would not go back which is the ultimate test.

I stayed here for two nights in possibly the shabbiest single room I've ever slept in. The bed was ancient, cheap mattress and dreadful elderly sheets with a thin cheap duvet. Bed wasn't even made after the first night, I had to ask for it to be as the duvet had been thrown over the sheets, which didn't fit the bed.
Breakfast day 1, soggy uninspiring scrambled eggs with no seasoning and coffee bitter from standing. Day two, delicious bacon and egg, and fresh croissant. Was it because I was earlier?
Lovely staff, doing their best, but tired decor, depressing paintwork, and stuff your fan would have chucked out in the 80's as being dated. Get a grip owners! You have a truly fabulous location, but do some decorating and get some decent beds and linen, ditch the uncoordinated cheap flat pack furniture and make ths the destination hotel it could and should be. A criminal waste of one of the loveliest spots on the sland with a great dive centre. Thin walls, uninspiring decor, horrid furniture, dreadful bed!

Room Tip: I assume the sea view rooms are better than the appalling noisy one I had tucked away at the back. D...
