A Guide To Hotels In Jersey
The British island with the French influence, there's something quite unique about Jersey, and being a small island, the range of hotels in Jersey can be limited, especially during the peak summer months. If you're looking to stay on Jersey, then you'll want to get your accommodation booked up pretty quickly.
Getting to, from and around Jersey
As part of the Channel Islands off the coast of France, you can get to Jersey by either by ferry or by plane. Depending on the journey, the ferry ride can take just 4 hours if taking the fast ferry from Poole, or can take just over 10 hours by normal ferry from Portsmouth, both of which carry cars.
If you're flying, several airlines have flights to Jersey from across the UK, including Blue Islands and Aurigny. British Airways and easyJet also offer direct flights. So depending on where you are travelling from, will depend on your best options.
Once you've arrived, if you've brought the car over, you can easily get around the island. If not, there are regular bus services throughout the island, and taxis are also on hand. Hiring bikes and cycling around the island is a fantastic way to see the countryside, especially during the summer.
Things to do in Jersey
Whether you visit Jersey to relax and unwind, or have a bit of an adrenaline rush, there is a great range of things to do on the island.
If you love keeping active, hiring a bike is perfect, and a fantastic way to explore the island, allowing you to get off the road and take on some of the paths and trails. Alternatively, head to St Ouens Beach and try your hand at surfing.
Jersey is home to some amazing restaurants, which serve a range of cuisine, including the Michelin starred Bohemia restaurant which serves local dishes with British and French twists, as well as a tasting menu.
Where to stay in Jersey
St Helier is the main town on the island and where you'll find all of the hustle and bustle. Hotels here range from the budget friendly Premier Inn to the luxurious 5-star Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa. B&Bs are also popular here with many seafront guest houses offering affordable accommodation within easy reach of the beach. The Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel is another popular place to stay for visitors.
Jersey's north coast is much more rugged and you'll find many quiet little villages here. If it's peace and quiet you enjoy, take a look at the 4-star Chateau la Chaire near Rozel Harbour, or the Prince of Wales Hotel near Greve de Lecq (although the beach here does get busy between May and August.)
Home to the long stretch of sandy beach at St Ouens Bay, the west coast enjoys more of a rolling hills vibe. This is the place to come if you like a chilled out beach vibe. Maison des Landes in the north and The Atlantic hotel in the south are worth looking at. You'll also find a number of private apartments and self catering accommodation dotted about which can be booked through the likes of Airbnb and Booking.com.
There are some fabulous Jersey hotels with spas, mainly around the St Helier area, including The Royal Yacht Hotel which has a Salt Inhalation Room and Reflexology Foot Basin to name a few, and the luxurious Longueville Manor Hotel and Restaurant, which is set amongst landscaped gardens, as well as a kitchen garden and beehives.
