We read the latest tripadvisor reviews before booking a special offer spring break in a Gold Double Room. The reviews were glowing so our expectations were high. I am pleased to say that we were not disappointed. We had a second floor room without a view but this was compensated for by having patio doors opening out onto a terrace. The room was large and comfortable with very varied and subtle lighting features. In the bathroom you had the choice of a normal or monsoon walk in shower as well as a bath. There was also underfloor heating so the usually cold tiles were always nicely warm. The breakfasts were good and the food well cooked. On two nights we ate in the Cafe Zephyr where we found the food and service was first class. We enjoyed the lively atmosphere but would not recommend going at peak times if you want a quiet meal and drink - there are plenty of other food outlets in the hotel with a less hectic environment. The Spa has comprehensive free facilities -one of the best we have come across wih no extra charges. All the staff we came across from reception, Restaurant Scirroco for breakfast, Cafe Zephyr, Spa and cleaning services were polite, friendly and efficient. It's easy to get around St Helier from the hotel and the bus station is only a couple of minutes walk away, from where there are cheap and frequent buses to all parts of the island. For a complete change of environment there is a great little Real Ale pub called 'The Lamplighter' in Mulcaster Street right next to the hotel. There is also a nice restaurant in the grounds of the Jersey Museum adjacent to the hotel in the square.
