Pontac House Hotel is located about 15 minutes driving time east of St. Helier in St. Clements Bay on the coast road. There is a bus stop immediately opposite the hotel for those guests without their own transport. There is a road junction next to the hotel, and guests will experience some traffic noise, but the road is rarely busy and we were never bothered by excessive noise even when sitting out on our room balcony.
The hotel overlooks the sea, with lovely views of the bay. The hotel has a car park at the back with reasonable capacity - we always found a space. Also behind the hotel is a well-appointed, tree-screened outdoor swimming pool with a sun-lounger terrace. In the main building, there are some guest rooms, as well as the main public rooms - lounge with wide-screen TV, bar and restaurant. As well as the main original building, there is a newer 3-floor extension providing guest rooms all with sea view terrace or balcony.
We had booked a standard country view room in the main hotel, but on arrival we paid for an upgrade to a superior room with sea view balcony in the hotel extension. Our room was very comfortable, clean and tastefully decorated and furnished. The room was a reasonable size, but contained both a double and a single bed, which limited the amount of free space. However, we had lovely weather and so could use the balcony with its bistro table and chairs as our sitting area. The room had a tiny TV (not flat-screen), and TV reception was a little hazy. The room had tea and coffee-making facilities and hair dryer. The ensuite bathroom had a bath with shower curtain.
The service we enjoyed at the hotel was outstanding from arrival to departure. The hotel is very well run, and everyone we dealt with was courteous, friendly, efficient and extremely helpful. We were offered a choice of room on arrival; front desk staff gave us helpful advice about local sights and amenities; the restaurant service was excellent; and the front desk even printed our return boarding cards for us. Outstanding!
Overall, we had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel, and would certainly recommend it to anyone visiting Jersey.
