The thing we enjoyed most about the hotel was the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that was created at breakfast each day and our experience would have been significantly better if this same attention to detail could have been applied in other ways.
Located in the village of Gorey on the East coast of Jersey with a few eating places and a couple of general stores close by and within a decent walk of the harbourside and a good selection of restaurants and bars ,this is an old building converted to provide around twenty rooms with a basement bar and an all day tea room open to the general public.
A few points about what we found at Old Bank House may be worth noting - there was a very easy style greeting which included just passing the keys to us and leaving us to find our room ourselves. The room we had was clean and tidy but included no (expected) phone, nor did it have any chair of any kind which seemed unusual. The Wc/shower cubicle off the bedroom was very compact (although the power shower was truly excellent) but there has been no room for a wash basin which was placed with mirror above inside the bedroom itself by the window.
The bed was very low but comfortable but we did have an issue with the housekeeping as we found cups and glasses were left unwashed and toiletries were not replenished without asking at Reception.While the hotel was reasonably quiet there was a seagull nest complete with three chicks just outside our window which will probably cause future occupants some concern in terms of noise nuisance generated as they grow if they are allowed to remain by the hotel management.
Overall we enjoyed our stay here as would others if they seek a modest, cheap and well located hotel that offers a good cooked breakfast to set you up for the day.
