Reviewed 8 May 2014

Staff are very helpful, food is excellent if a little expensive, free parking and wi fi. The breakfast is excellent and they offer a fulll range including kippers and porrage. The pool is just OK, it could be bigger and has a closed in feel to it.

Room Tip: all rooms are good but those with a front view are the best

We stayed here over May bank holiday. Incredibly attentive staff, great dinner in the bistro, and pleasant evening afterwards in the bar area, which is very relaxing. The spa facilities, including pool, are absolutely lovely. Location is very good with just a short stroll into the town where there is a good variety of shops and restaurants. We will definitely be going back. The rooms are very clean and a good size, perhaps a little dated in terms of decor but by no means does this spoil the overall experience of the hotel.

As ever the hotel experience is excellent. The service is excellent and the food in the Bistro is excellent and good value. The rooms are clean and tidy with good wifi connection. The only down side is the lack of curtains. I didn't use the Spa on this trip.

Stayed here during April 2014, Nice room on the third floor, good English fresh cooked breakfast.
Very helpful and friendly staff. Rooms lack a little sound proofing but kept clean and tidy.
Did not get to use the facilites but looked very modern.

Beautiful hotel from the outside, stunning interior and reception area. Great staff, very helpful, special mention to Marco. Room was nice but no curtains only white vertical blinds that didn't close all the way up. Hot water took forever to get to the taps/shower. The evening meal was wonderful and the service was outstanding. The morning came a lot quicker than I was expecting due to the sun bursting into the room at sunrise (545am). Oh well that gave me time to get a shower etc before the pre order breakfast in bed arrived at 7.30. At 7.45 I was a bit hungry and opened the door fully expecting to find my tray on the floor at the door, alas no. The breakfast order was still hanging on the door handle from the night before. I walked down to reception to complain, "we don't know how that happened do you want us to get the breakfast now?" Too late as I was up. Fortunately the service and breakfast in the restaurant was excellent. If you want a good evening meal then this is the hotel for you.

Room Tip: Ask for one with curtains if you don't want waking up with the sunrise

Just returned from a two night business/pleasure trip to Jersey. On arrival at the hotel I quizzed the friendly desk staff about local restaurants: They recommended one that I had seen, and immediately called and reserved a table for myself and my partner. Lovely old-fashioned ambience about the building, great service and very good breakfast. we did have to move rooms as ours had an adjoining door which meant absolutely no soundproofing, but this was done with a minimum of fuss. Huge beds. Generally first class all around. It's an old building, and it shows, but if you want to stay in a soul-less Premier Inn or similar then go there. Otherwise for a bit of class and character then the Hotel De France is the one..

Room Tip: Do check that the room doesn't have a connecting door to the next room or you'll feel like t...

Have visited the hotel many times and stayed recently to see how different the place is after the recent Christmas refurb closure. I know they planed to convert one of the wings to apartments and was interested to see the changes. Besides the smell of fresh paint in my room I couldn't see any! The hotel is still ok and it's true it trumps a lot of the others with car parking and it's spa facility,especially if the weather is nice. This is a massive hotel and must be doing some very careful balancing of the books to keep it all going. I hope everything goes well for them but for me I think
It needs to be brought up to date or is likely to be stuck in a rut.

Stayed: April 2014
