The largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey is a fascinating blend of both British and French and is rich in culture and history. St Helier would probably boast the best places to stay in Jersey, but we've found others further afield that would easily fulfil the brief.
Longueville Manor is probably one of the best known hotels on the island. It's reputation is well founded however. Independently owned and managed since it became a hotel in the 1940s, it prides itself on superb understated service, and feels like a home from home (albeit a very luxurious one). Located about 2km from St Helier, it is ideally situated for everything going on in the capital, but with all its faciities (tennis court, pool, croquet lawn to name but a few) who needs to go anywhere?
There is plenty to explore on the island from Mont Orgeuil Castle which dates back to the 13th century to the more recent remains of the German occupation - gun emplacements and bunkers - during the Second World War. Eulah House is a good choice for a grown up escape on Jersey. A child free zone most of the time it offers lavish accommodation overlooking St Aubin's Bay. The outdoor pool and sauna are ideal for unwinding after a day exploring the sights.
For those who enjoy more epicurean pursuits, there are plenty of good eateries, not to mention a healthy splash of french influence in a large proportion of the restaurants. If you want to stay somewhere with great food we'd suggest either The Atlantic Hotel or The Club Hotel & Spa. Both have Michelin starred restaurants and much more besides.
Hotel wise, whilst there is a wide range across the island to suit all budgets, we have chosen a select few which we feel represent the best places to stay in Jersey. The order by which the hotels are listed bears no reflection on our preference.
