We have stayed at this hotel twice now & overall I have to say it is fantastic.
First time was in a Platinum room & if the weather is fine & you do not mind noise they are the choice to make - the vista is superb & you get sun all day (should you want to lounge around on your balcony....)
The weekend we just stayed was slightly different - we had a Gold room which overlooked the Jersey Museum.
Gold rooms themselves are to a really good standard it was just the view from the window & the lack of daylight in the room which was disappointing.
The room numbers to avoid are 213, 313 & 413 as these look directly out onto the wall of the adjacent building.& are very dark in the day.
I have not dropped a mark for this though as the hotel itself, the staff & the overall experience is second to none.
The Sirocco restaurant is excellent but quite pricey, we also ate in the Zephyr bar on the bottom floor - do not be put off by this place the food here is also of excellent quality just a more relaxed setting (have the Chili squid it is superb....).
The breakfasts are amazing with an abundance of choice & staff on hand to happily cater to varying requests.
The star though for me is the inclusion of the spa - loved it & it is one of the reasons we will always go back.
After a hot day on the beach (or a rainy day touring the island) it is wonderful to kick back & relax in the spa....gym, pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam, etc....TERRIFIC
If you plan to travel around Jersey the bus station is just a short walk & you have to experience the weekend late runs - party atmosphere...
