My friend and I wanted a last minute escape & location was determined on where we could get a flight to - jersey! We wanted a bit of luxury, nice food, spa and this seemed to tick all the boxes. We did a 3 night dinner, bed & breakfast deal & also some spa treatments.
We arrived early & were greeted by a very welcoming receptionist who let us check in super early (9:30am). The room was fine with a balcony (not sea view as they were over £100 more a night!). It's set on a stunning beach and we were lucky to get 3 days of sunshine and made the most of free sunbeds on the beach (which is a nice touch for hotel guests).
We dined at the fine dining restaurant on two of the nights (the waiters were lovely) & upgraded to the taster menu - the menu included in the package just wasn't as inspiring but think places do that on purpose! The food was delicious & inventive. On the 3rd night we felt like something less rich & got £32 towards food in the Atlantic restaurant which was very disappointing. The waiters were arguing, it had no ambiance and they charger £23 for a badly cooked tough steak with a small portion of wedges that didn't take a chef to make!- I had to pay more for a little basic salad! They also had a wedding there that night so the staff were a little frantic! My only other gripe is the price of the wine. I've noticed a few people mentioned that. You're a captive audience so stuck, there is a balance of making your money from customer drinks and making you customers feel like they are being ripped off!
We pre booked some treatments - I had a fantastic facial but very disappointed massage. Beauty therapist routine rather than someone who really has that magic massage touch. I booked deep tissue & ticked the firm box and it was a very gentle massage, I probably should have said something hut end up feeling awkward - it was very clear from my booking I wanted a deep tissue massage! It's an elemis spa so it's expensive too and they always to try and sell you products.
So all in all it was a lovely little get away break. Stunning location, clean, good food (not Atlantic). I would go back but wouldn't eat there every night. We'd definitely head to the crab shack along the beach for a bit of a change (and reasonably priced wine!).
To be fair we don't often stay in big hotels so not got a lot to compare it to - more of a guest house, quirky accommodation person.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Built in 1850 by George Hicks, a colonel in the Bengal Army, the building has an almost Mediterranean feel yet the hotel itself is unmistakably British. The interior is calm and elegant, full of space and light, while the outside impresses with its beautiful terrace and the view over golden sand and crystal clear waters. We believe in taking things easy here, with a strong focus on leisure: something we like to think we are good at! One of the highlights of the four star L'Horizon Beach Hotel is the new spa, which includes six treatment rooms, a relaxation area, pedicure and manicure area and sleep room. With 106 bedrooms and three restaurants, the hotel offers the ideal setting for an intimate break, a romantic wedding and (as it is just 10 minutes from Jersey airport) an inspiring meeting venue. ... more less
