“Place a little soulless”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2011

Just returned from a 4 night stay at the Mountview. Had a big room and paid extra for a balcony. Rather disappointed on arrival to find lovely large balcony complete with a set of step ladders, dust sheet, 2 large tins of paint, roller and couple of bags of rubbish. I asked at reception if these could be moved and was told yes but it did take 24 hrs. Very rarely anyone at reception but phone there with a number for you to ring to get a staff member. On arrival I also noticed there was a little rubbish in the bathroom bin this was not emptied all the time we were there plus it had further rubbish in we had put in during the week. We returned to room second day of our holiday to find our room had not been cleaned and tea tray not replenished. I went to reception, again unmanned and rang to request some milk so we could have a drink. I said room had not been cleaned and I did get an apology and was told the cleaner obviously missed our room out accidentally. Apart from these complaints the room was clean and the bathroom looked as though recently refitted and was lovely and clean and always plenty of hot water. Breakfast was plentiful and good service but somehow the place just does not seem to have any character and seems to lack a bit of soul. Reception is just a very small desk and rarely is anyone there, no computer on show or any info on Jersey, this is placed around a corner near the lift. Place just lacks a bit of TLC. Apart from all of this I must admit it was value for money here.

Room Tip: Pay extra and get balcony, well worth it.

Just got back from a short stay at the Mountview Hotel. Vey nice helpful staff, a clean room with good facilities and an excellent breakfast!
5min walk to the town centre, about 10mins to Liberation Bus Station.
Jersey War Tunnels was excellent,as was Mount Ougeill Castle and so was St Brelades Beach for the family.

Stayed here for two nights on business. Lovely Hotel, great location and fantastic service. Very close to town.

Don't come if you want swimming pool and lively bar, its a very quiet small hotel.

I took my girlfriend for a long weekend break to Jersey at the end of April and stayed at Mountview on a friends reccomendation. The location was perfect, right next to the town and the hotel itself was well decorated and clean. The staff were very friendly and along with the lovely weather we luckily got that weekend it made for perfect get away.

I stayed at the hotel for 9 days and was together with my wife for the first half. Looking back really pleased with it and I probably stayed longer than most people visiting Jersey these days so it was a good test. Being honest the fact that we had the best Jersey April weather since the 1800's may have influenced a little our feel-good factor. But the following is true:- All the people involved in the running - owners/staff - had a lovely attitude. Friendly, efficient, calm and humorous. Distance was fine for us - up a slight hill but well within stroll distance of the whole town, with sweetie shops and wine shops close-by for those night time snacks. Very impressed with our room - large, clean, comfortable and better than many of a 4star international brand. However at the back of the hotel in the annex the corridor was narrow, dark and unattractive - with that damp smell that has been mentioned by others. Windows being open helped. Plenty of variation available for breakie and well cooked with the 'hottest plates' ever and toast and tea on tap!! ps we loved the doggies. Our's would have had a great time with them. Will be recommending and one or both of our son's could be going quite soon.
