just been to the omaroo as staying in jersey for a friends wedding. Unfortunately assigned a non-refurbished room which at over £100 a night left a lot to be desired. Old tatty furniture and a bathroom out of the 70's and a rather stale greasy smell the pervades the hotel.
it has the makings of something nice - lovely gardens, breakfast food tasted good and they appear to be building a pool. But from the instant coffee in a pot for breakfast - really!, the vacant reception desk, papers you order but have to actually collect from reception in the morning (breakfast in bed and room service), the search for the door to the gardens (why are they hiding them), bar that ran out of any 'snacks' by 5pm on a saturday night and the 'assigned breakfast seating' and pool building that starts drilling at 8am on sunday, lets itself down time and again...
The location is also not the best. Much better to stay in the lovely St Aubin or in town at a more homely B&B - for this price I expect service versus functional accomodating. Spend you money elsewhere
