We have just returned home after a wonderful week in Jersey. We had the best room in Jersey and recommend anyone booking a garden room to ask for room 2. The staff were most attentive especially Joe and to cap it all we had fabulous weather. A really lovely location made for a perfect holiday.

Room Tip: An absolute must is a sea view.

Many thanks for taking the time to review your stay with us. Our Garden rooms do come in for a lot of praise and none higher than yours, many thanks. Garden room 2 like the other 2 Garden rooms are proving extremely popular with their modern fittings, private terrace, garden and lovely views across the bay. We look forward to welcoming you back soon but book early as the Garden Rooms go very quickly.

Kind regards

Just back from an excellent break in Jersey. The Somerville Hotel was superb in every way. Our room was spotless and very comfortable, with fantastic views over the bay. All the staff are very welcoming and helpful and the gardens/pool are beautiful. Already planning my next visit.

We've had numerous stay overs at the Somerville over the last few years and have always found the hotel to be uber relaxing, not only because of it's beautiful views over St Aubins bay, but it's friendly and helpful staff, and always exquisite food. The hotel itself is always beautifully presented, and being a period building has real character. It's location just above St Aubins means a 2 minute stroll can have you at any of the numerous bars and restaurants that surround this charming harbour. We will certainly be returning for another relaxing break in the near future!

We stayed here for six nights in the garden rooms, the accommodation is superb, views over St. Aubin's bay are truly stunning, the weather has been fantastic and the sunrise starts the day with a very pleasant wake up call (the rooms face the rising sun). Breakfast is a wonderful relaxing experience where you enjoy the views over the bay whilst being attended to by very friendly, efficient and courteous staff the fare is excellent and caters for most tastes. We have dined here of an evening three times during our stay and have been absolutely delighted with the quality and presentation of the courses chosen. In our opinion this hotel is well worth visiting all the facilities are wonderfully maintained and the room lacked nothing. We will definitely be returning here in the near future.

We live in Jersey and recently held my partner's 50th birthday party there - we chose to go back there as my partner's Christmas party was held there and we stayed overnight. The venue for the 50th was superb, the staff were amazing - courteous and very attentive without being overbearing and the Manager and could not do enough during the planning and preparation - everyone had a fantastic evening - thank you Somerville Hotel staff and Managers - you made it very special.

We stayed in a superior garden room with sea view. Well it was under the carpark along with two others. Because of the low location, it had its own outside sitting area, and the wall the sea view was only just there through the glass door window. The room was clean and well appointed (including kitchen sink!) but rather small for the large price tag. The bed was comfortable and wifi excellent. The bar area and staff were great as were the evening meals and service. I must really thank the chief for going out of his way to make me a vegetarian meal, yes there wasn't that option on the menu. The serving at breakfast was a bit strange. We were eventually offered coffee which we sat and drank and waited for ages for the girl to take our order. I had to ask her eventually and she said she was waiting for us to finish our coffee first. Never heard of anything so daft. Overall a very pleasant stay and would use the hotel again but perhaps with a better choice of room with a real view.

Many thanks for taking the time to share your observations. Delighted that you found our new Garden rooms comfortable. Apologies for any mis-understanding at breakfast as you quite rightly point out this isn't the correct way and not the way that we take orders at breakfast. We look forward to the opportunity of welcoming you back soon.

Kind regards

My husband & I who are local, treated ourselves to an overnight at this lovely hotel. On arriving we noticed how attentive & polite the staff were, & the car park staff did an amazing job! The food was lovely & the staff were fantastic. Our only criticism was that when we booked the room in february we were told that there were only sea view rooms available for April so had to pay a supplement. Our room was lovely & clean but we felt it wasn't a sea view room, more a view of the car park, which was fine unless like us, we were paying extra!
