On Jersey for a weekend hockey tour. Started well at reception with the receptionist smiling broadly and getting involved with the banter. My room was tired and old, found out later that the plumbing was interesting too. To be fair, we were on tour what your room is like isn't a high priority - as long as the bed is comfortable, the shower works and the breakfast is good that's my main concerns. The food at breakfast was pretty good - help yourself cooked breakfast - the staff though seemed to be under some sort of control from the manager who seemed to rule with a steel rod. Shame. The bar was interesting too, late night drinks finished without warning every night at 1PM.
For the hotel itself, bits of it seem very nice, we didn't see much of the more modern rooms at the back overlooking the pool, but for the bits we saw, it's tired and in need of major refurbishment. Somehting which presumably isn't going to happen any time soon. My advice to potentail customers would be to bargain hard on the price of you room; demand a room with a view of the pool if the charges seem to be high.
Overall you have to wonder about the hotel is run when - in public areas at least - the staff don't seem to be alowed to talk with the guests. Apart from the receptionist on the Friday, and the pool attendant every day, the staff seem not to be allowed to talk to guests. Very strange. In conclusion, if you like your stay in a hotel to involve spending time in your room, make sure you get a view of the pool!
