The food, the service and the location were superb. We loved our coffee and cheese in the conservatory overlooking the beach at Havre Des Pas.
Congratulations Simon and your team.
We will definitely be back in 2013.

They've been working hard on bringing some life back into an old tired hotel, but they've managed to keep the character. The hotel is a great location from town - no more than a 10 minute walk (just ask the reception for the quickest route). Right across the road from Harve De Pas outside swimming pool - which is a restored Victorian sea water swimming pool on the beach. So great for swimming when the tide goes our and very safe for swimming.

Stayed in one of the refurished sea view rooms (#88) - this was excellent. Clean, large with a good size balcony over looking the sea. Hotel is clean, still a bit tired in places, but very good value. Staff are all very friendly and make you feel at home.

Food is OK, but there are so many options right on the doorstep that it would be a shame if you stayed here and ate in the hotel every night. Breakfast is not a buffet of you have a hot breakfast. This is made to order so everything is perfectly cooked and fresh - not the tired dried out rubbish you can get with a buffet sometimes.

If you want to stay in a hotel that is not pretentious but still retains some character and charm, in a good location with a sea view that is minutes from St Helier then I would recommend this one. It's below top class, but above the average. Great compromise.

Room Tip: Room 88 is large and has a great balcony view across the beach.

Stayed for five nights from 18th-23rd October 2012, we thourghly enjoyed or stay. Staff very friendly, food and service excellent. Rooms very neat and tidy. If you can walk it takes 10 minutes to centre, or catch the bus, every 20 mins. We were attending my sons wedding, and the wedding room was arranged to a high degree. Plenty of choice of meals and times to suit everyone, whither a snack or main meal, ( try the moules).If you want to sit and read or just talk, there is ample space with large leather seats. The outside grass area is ideal for a small beer or snack. Parking is round the back. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for balcony on sea front, extra, but great to look at the sea

My parents stayed at the Ommaroo hotel for their 30th Wedding anniversary. I wanted to arrange for flowers and a bottle of bubbly to be put in their room as a suprise - the hotel arranged this without any problems. They ordered a lovely bunch of flowers and had them delivered on the day they arrived. Chocolates and bubbly were also left in the room, along with a 30th anniversary card which a member of staff went to the shop and brought for me.
I am very grateful to all the staff at the hotel and would recommend staying there to all my family and friends.
My parents are coming home today and have said they wish they were staying longer - they have had a lovely time and commented on how clean and fresh their room was!!

Just arrived back from 6 days at Ommaroo Hotel in Jersey.. What can I say,, been to many very good hotels in Jersey over the past 20 years and all have been very good.. What a location, the Ommaroo is, over the road from the beach and swimming pool, many bars, cafes and restaurants within a few minutes from the hotel, not that you need to leave the hotel as the menu and food there is very good,, breakfast is buffet style with all you can eat,, Made a pig of myself,, Sorry Ommaroo, and keep those eggs frying Mossi... Staff very helpful and polite.. And the room we were in was all completely upgraded to a very high standard.. St Helier centre within 15 mins or less walk and on the level.And a large car park
My wife and I both being local hotel assessors ( Inspectors as you call us ) could see that Ommaroo Hotel had been a very dated hotel in the past but the work gone into this establishment and what is planned for next year I can see this being one of the best Hotels in Jersey.. Would I go back. Definate. I am hoping to return for a couple of weeks in May next year.. Well done Ommaroo from the guests in room 5...

Having just returned from a four night stay I have nothing but praise for this Hotel. From the moment my wife and I arrived we were treated with as a previous correspondent described it ‘Old fashion values’ The receptionist swiftly carried our bags to our sea view room. Dinner was excellent with the menu varying daily and value for money. Nothing was ever too much trouble for the waiters who were attentive without being intrusive. Courtesy was of the highest with the manageress having a chat with couples to enquire of any issues. Only one problem does come to mind and that’s my expanding waistband, oh the breakfast was good
