Just got back from a long weekend in Jersey, staying at the Shakespear. Staff very polite and helpful, hotel room was basic and nice and clean with a good flat screen TV to watch at night before hitting the sack. Room was a little warm as it was over the kitchen, but fine really. Food - we were half-board and also did a couple of lunches too, where the quality of the food alternated between good and very good. The waiter service would be considered as very good. No issues there at all. Well done !.
Jersey - a very busy place in respect of traffic with the roads difficult to walk as there are few pavements, and many buses, cars, vans, huge 4x4's, small coaches, motorbikes and cyclists constantly on the roads. More built up than we imagined it to be. People in general were friendly, with most cafe owners helpful. Bus drivers - most were fine but a couple were not so helpful, but the frequency of buses is good with a minimum charge of 1.20 and a max charge of 1.70. If you do the rounds, you will change frequently, but pay again each time you change. You can get a pass for about £6 ish I am told. Forget car hire, the roads are just too busy. Sometimes it seems that the number of vehicles must exceed the number of people who live on the island. Over all, we had a good break, and would stay at the hotel again without hesitation. Arranged through Jersey Travel, who were ok. Did not see anyone from the agency when our flight arrived late at the airport from Manchester, but we waited for half an hour and our transfers turned up, even though they were dealing with backlog due to airport closure the prev day due to Fog, and lots of delays.
