“Excellent hotel, would strongly recommend”
Reviewed 11 July 2011

Stayed for 7 nights at the 3 star Monteray, still cant work out why its just 3 stars. The rooms, although slightly dated were spotless. We had rooms opening directly onto the pool/patio area which was a bonus.
The staff were all lovely, very friendly and polit, nothing was too much trouble.. The breakfasts were great, lots of choice, full english, cereal, fruit,yoghurt, meats etc.
Its certainly worth paying for half board as the evening meals were excellent,four choices at each course, every meal was delicious.
The indoor pool facility/changing rooms were also excellent.
Its about a 10 minute walk to town if you are fit, 10 mins further to the bus station where you can get a bus to anywhere. A taxi to the hotel from town was £5
I would strongly recommend this hotel.

Just returned from 5 days in Jersey staying at The Monterey Hotel. If you are looking for a swanky flash, lively hotel this may not be for you BUT if you are looking for VALUE FOR MONEY - a good location, spotlessly clean, excellent service, tasty food, good lesiure facilities at no extra cost (2 pools, & mini gym) etc. then this could well be for you. Our spacious room was unpretentious, slightly dated but again lovely and clean. Suprisingly no duvets but having sweated and then frozen alternately in other hotels when the weather has been warm, this may be why and you'll be ony too grateful to have a crisp clean cotton sheet to sleep under!

Dinner at the hotel was available in both the restaurant and bar at very reasonable cost (- certainly cheaper than eating out anywhere else). In our case we opted for the bar meals which were more than sufficient and very good - (recommend the Jersey fishcakes). On a couple of nights there was light entertainment too. You may be thinking of eating out in town in St Helier in the evening (as was our inital intention), but word of warning the local buses STOP RUNNING after about 6pm so you'll have to leg it back from town, which if you've already been on your feet all day may be the last straw and you'll be only too gratefuL to have chosen a hotel with 2 very reasonably priced dinner options.

DON'T FORGET TOO to claim your freebies before or at reception if you booked online (for 3+ days) = a free bottle of wine and 2 x Jersey (tourist attractions) Passes for 2 days for the price of 1 (a saving of £32). TOP MARKS to the Manager and staff of this hotel who were quietly unassuming but sparklingly efficient!

We had booked a premier room which really was premier with lots of room. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet had a good selection of cereals,juices,fruit,yogurts and hot food. The Hotel was a pleasant 15 minute walk to the town centre.

The Montery is an exceptionally well-run hotel. Particularly the staff are excellent: friendly, helpful, and available. Absolutely nothing was a problem. I cannot remember the last time I experienced such good service, in a hotel or anywhere. The hotel itself was clean, well-appointed, and everything worked as it should. There is a nice swimming pool, gym equipment (if that's your thing) and lounge. The breakfasts are generous and the dinners quite good. The table service was also of a good standard. Finally, it's fairly close to the centre of town, and not too expensive. I just hope they don't go and change anything.

We spent 7 nights here and were very pleased with our choice of hotel. Short walk into the centre of town and we never had a problem parking at the hotel. Decor a little dated, but the staff more than made up for this. Food excellent with a good choice and having booked half board, very good value. Best thing about this hotel, the staff.

We stayed here for 5 nights in June and were very impressed.

The service from every member of staff we encountered was impeccable. They were always very polite and helpful.

The room was of a reasonable size, there was ample storage space, mirrors and a hairdrier and the bed was comfortable. We had asked for a room away from the traffic and were not disappointed.

The bathroom was a fair size; I have seen smaller! It was clean, the towels were soft and toiletries were provided. The shower was quite powerful and there was always plenty of hot water.

Breakfast was more than ample with a large choice of cooked and contintal dishes and plenty of tea and coffee. We ate in the bar on two evenings and for the price the meals were very good, but not exceptional. However, the cheese and pickle sandwich was a little disappointing. I had expected more cheese and pickle and less lettuce, but now I am just being 'picky'!

The hotel is located about 15 mins brisk walk from Liberation Square which seemed a bit of a drag after a day out walking, but there seemed to be few hotels much closer. There is a bus (No 23) which passes the hotel, but I'm not sure how often. There is also no view as it is in a built-up area. There are restaurants closer than this. Mino's was an interesting one! I would certainly return there.

The weather could not entice me into the outdoor pool, although on a hot day perhaps I could have been tempted. We did not use the indoor pool or the gym because we were too busy outdoors, so I cannot comment on those.

Most of all I liked the fact that after a whole day out walking and sight-seeing I knew I could look forward to a comfortable, clean hotel in which I could relax.

There is nothing I disliked about the hotel. I just wish it could be closer to the centre and with a sea-view!!!

Stayed here as part of a wedding party, though the wedding venue was elsewhere on the island, the staff at the Monterey were helpful beyond the call of duty. Some of the rooms maybe a little dated in decor, however, they are comfortable, all facilities that you want are there, but any shortcomings in the rooms (let's be honest, it's only decor) were more that balanced out by the helpful "can do" attitude of the staff.

Would I recommend this for your Jersey stay? Definitely!

We are grateful for your feedback and are pleased that you would happily recommend our hotel.

Our guest bedrooms are deliberately fairly traditional. Whilst enjoyment of style and decor is to some extent a subjective judgement, we are pleased that you also felt able to give Monterey high scores in respect of service, value and facilities. Thank you.
