About Channel Islands

Click here for the best places to stay in the Channel Islands

All our Channel Islands collections:

In the Channel Islands they seems to do things their own way, in fact it differs from island to island - the same can be said for the best places to stay in the Channel Islands, and that's one of the nicest things about visiting.

So physically close to France, yet so terribly British, the Channel Islands seem to have the best of both. The climate feels almost tropical compared to the rest of the UK, but you know you're still in Britain because the fog and tides have a profound, yet charming, affect on travel…

This step-back-in-time destination makes for wonderful family holidays - with Enid Blyton type appeal! Walk stunningly varied coastlines, gorge yourself on fresh seafood and take your time exploring. Eating's not just for pleasure here, it's in the cuisine of the islands that the French-English cultural blend is possibly at its most interesting.

Jersey is the largest of the Channel Islands, and also the financial capital, so there is a bit of glitz and glamour. There are also 48miles worth of impressive coastline, a mix of rugged cliffs and sandy beaches. And plenty of walking and/ or cycling tracks between them. Jersey also has a fascinatingly colourful history, which you can get to know better in the island's numerous museums.

Guernsey has a pretty port, with narrow, cobbled streets winding up and down the steep rise from the harbour. It's the kind of place people come to get away from modern life. Its wildflower coloured fields thrive in the almost subtropical climate and, like Jersey, there are plenty of walking paths in and out of the towns. A strange wonder of Guernsey is Hauteville House, where an exiled Victor Hugo wrote Les Miserables. He did a lot of the decorating himself, including building some of the furniture.

Sark is probably one of the UK's most unique destinations: famed for its almost feudal governance and total lack of cars or streetlights. Small in size, but long and thin with very crenelated edges, Sark has a lot of coastline. Perfect to explore on two feet or two wheels - of course those are pretty much your only options here - oh, they do have a horse drawn cart for your bags… It's definitely worth knowing that here street signs refer to how many minutes it will take you to walk somewhere, rather than the distance in miles.

As you'd imagine the best places to stay in the Channel Islands get very booked up during the summer months and peak dates. So plan ahead! Book early or alternatively come during the quieter periods when you can really appreciate the beauty of these British outposts.

Best Places to Stay in the Channel Islands

For a complete escape!

  • The White House Hotel on the tiny island of Herm is a slightly more adventurous option. Not only are there no cars on the island, but there are also no TVs in the hotel. Or telephones.
  • La Sablonnerie is a collection of cottages and homes all decorated with a traditional, rural feel on peaceful Sark. The owner/ manager wants it to be a oasis of good living and courtesy, and does her best to make sure this sentiment is in everything they do. From the horse drawn carriage that meets you on arrival to the home grown food served in the restaurant.

For foodies

  • If you're looking for a room with a view, and a Michelin star try The Atlantic Hotel on Jersey. There's a spa and gym, tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, and a golf course just next door.
  • Another of Jersey's Michelin stars can be found at The Club Hotel & Spa, a 'city style' hotel in the centre of St. Helier. As the name suggests the vibe is modern and boutique-y.

For a special occasion

  • Beautifully converted from what was originally a Norman manor house on Guernsey, Bella Luce is one of the best places to stay in the Channel Islands if you're looking for luxury. The decor is romantic, but modern, there's a state of the art spa, one of the best restaurants on Guernsey, and exclusive cars and personal shoppers.
  • Built in the 14th Century, Longueville Manor and estate has been carefully converted, over the course of seven decades, into an excellent boutique hotel on Jersey. Here care is taken over everything, and the result is unfussy luxury.
  • Grand to the point of opulence, the converted Old Government House on Guernsey retains the feel of an old Gentlemen's Club, with plenty of communal space and several restaurants.
  • Stocks Hotel on Sark is perfect for relaxing in style. Originally built in 1741, this hotel has been refurbished to include all the mod. cons. There's plenty to do from yoga to croquet, to birdwatching, tennis, art classes or even a Scuba course - but the beautiful surrounds make this the perfect place in which to do very little.

For a family seaside holiday

  • For a traditional seaside holiday, one of the best places to stay in the Channel Islands is L'Horizon Hotel & Spa. Right on the beach of St. Brelade's Bay, this hotel has been booking families into its sea-view rooms since 1850.
  • The Braye Beach Hotel on the island of Alderney offers an old fashioned resort style holiday. Well equipped for rainy days - with its cinema and games room - the Braye Beach is right on the beach, so it's very family friendly when the sun is out. Alderney is also one of the best places to stay on the Channel Islands for twitchers - over 260 different species have been spotted here.
  • The St. Pierre Park Hotel & Golf Resort on Guernseyis the Channel Island's only real resort. Set amongst acres of beautiful landscape, as well as golf there's tennis, croquet, a gym, walks and a spa.
