Reviewed 1 July 2014

We recently returned from our second visit to Jersey, both times staying in one of Samares Manor's self-catering cottages. Standards are high and we will certainly stay there again on the next visit. The grounds are a delight and the herb garden magnificent at this time of year (late June). We only had the opportunity of eating one breakfast in their restaurant this time, but enjoyed it. Their lunch menu looked attractive and it's just a pity we ran out of time to try it on this trip. We will next time!

Thank you for your very positive review. We pride ourselves on the standard of our self catering accommodation and are always very pleased to receive return visits from our clients. The gardens are truly a little oasis on the fringe of St,. Helier

These beautiful gardens are well laid out and the most of the plants well labelled. As well as the rose & lavender garden and extensive herb garden, there are some lovely mini plant combinations which are coloured themed / style themed (eg 'cottage garden' and 'vibrant'. Good wheelchair accessibility to most parts and excellent café.

Came away with lots of ideas and the memory of a gardener singing to himself as he worked - I knew how he felt.

Yes, the gardens are looking magnificent at this particular time. Both "The Discovery " and the newly formed" Calendar Garden" and "Gardens of Colour" have been very well received. Your comment about the whistling gardener was very amusing,, perhaps we should suggest this as part of the work ethic. Please do visit us again if you are in Jersey as we have many more exciting developments in mind.

These gardens are well worth visiting. There are unusual plants, herbs and helpful ideas for you to try in your own garden. The cafe is very good too.

We spent approximately four hours at Samares Manor and so glad we didn't miss it. Going in June we were lucky to see such a wonderful display of flowers. As keen gardeners we thoroughly enjoyed the visit.
The food in the cafe was freshly prepared with a good choice of menu, if possibly a little pricey but what you can expect these days.
I am glad we didn't miss visiting Samares Manor and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.

Thank you for your very positive comments. The gardens at Samarès are at their zenith in June, in particular, "The Herb Garden" and "The Discovery Garden". The location of the café situated in "The Herb Garden", which is a blaze of colour, is always well received as are the delicious home made cakes.

An inspirational place to visit. The gardens are beautifully laid out. One area has a high viewing platform to enhance viewing of the whole layout. Any gardener would find inspiration from walking around Samares. Peaceful garden to visit.

Your positive comments are very much appreciated. The gardens are, as you say, inspirational and tranquil even for those of us that are employed here. We are, of course, continuing with the further developments of the gardens, so please do visit us again when you are next in Jersey.
