Reviewed 30 May 2014

Family of four stayed here for four nights at end May 2014. We requested rooms near each other before we came, we were pleased to be allocated interconnecting rooms. Beautiful hotel situated 10 minutes walk from main shopping area and restaurants; clean, well decorated and maintained, staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast fantastic, we had great views of the garden from our room. Saunas and pools best we have experienced in a hotel, lots of room never feels busy or crowded. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Room overlooking the beautiful garden if you can. Also very quiet for a good sleep.

I have been visiting this hotel for over 30 years since a long weekend to see visit this island that was the backdrop to the TV series Bergerac.I have therefore seen in in its many incarnations as building/rebuilding has caused it to change greatly during that time.
Throughout it all the one thing that has not changed is the friendly, efficiency of the staff. If something isn't right they will always try to sort it. I don't make use of the exotic spa as I get all my exercise walking on the island. Similarly I like to visit the great range of restaurants in the town but do usually use the Cafe Aroma in the hotel as well and breakfasts are great.
One thing to point out is the short climb from the road up the steep hill on which the hotel is situated. Some visitors will find using the hotel's courtesy mini bus a big help here. To first time visitors to Jersey the town of St. Helier is a working environment not a pretty picture postcard - if you want hotels with those sort of views it's better to choose one out in a country/coastal location.

I have already booked my return visit for 2015.

We stayed for two nights and found the room to be spacious, clean and adequate. I must admit, I was expecting slightly more glamorous based on the photos of the hotel but there was nothing to complain about. Our room (152) overlooked nothing in particular which was a shame. The breakfast was great, the spa was really great, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the break didn't cost us a fortune so all good.

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. Our original room was rather small with a small double bed but, after one very uncomfortable night, we were moved to another standard room which was extremely spacious and had a massive bed! The spa was very nice but the treatments very expensive. However, the massage pool was wonderful! The food was unusual...Indian themed Restuarant served high quality food but not to everyone's taste. It was also ver expensive. We indulged in Afternoon Tea which was superb!! So much food we couldn't eat it all!
Overall, we would return to this hotel again if we could be given one of the larger bedrooms.

The Hotel De France never disappoints and always surprises.
Such a wonderful place since the spa has been upgraded it's even better.
Simply a must for visitors to Jersey.
The food is amazing with great menu choices and several different places to eat within the hotel.

I stayed this weekend with my husband and small child, we had a family room which (while perfectly clean, quiet and adequate), looked like a throwback from years gone by. Given the website look and feel and the cost of the room I expected more.
That said, the waiting staff in Aroma Cafe were second to none with one of the waiters, John, being jovial with our 4 year old and making her feel special. Our food was fantastic too & I would head back there for that alone.
Again the staff in Saffrons bar were charming and attentive and were happy to accommodate us making an alcho-free cocktail for our daughter.
The pool area is fantastic & gives a luxury feel - again, well worth going for this.
I would go again, but this time I wouldn't expect so much from the rooms.

Comfortable quiet room at the back of the hotel. Free wifi good signal. Buffet style breakfast was super; tasty fresh wide selection continental and traditional English too. As much as you like.

Swimming pool area although inside is bright modern and fresh. Two pools plus sauna and steam room.

Staff friendly and helpful

Like much of Jersey it's very quiet on a Sunday eg no courtesy bus into town and one of the two restaurants isn't open. The hotel is not in the centre of town, bear in mind if you don't have transport.
