“Basic but passable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

The rooms at the Stafford Hotel are rather ragged (e.g. avocado bathrooms) and the facilities somewhat basic. Don’t expect luxury towels, widescreen LCD TVs, king-sized beds or room service.

That said, the location is very good and a short walk to the centre of St Helier. The members of staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was a decent spread too and some standard tea and coffee-making facilities were in the room.

One downside was the high number of students that were there on our first night. They were loud and messy but, once they'd left, the place was quite peaceful.

If you want somewhere in a good location and on a budget then you can’t go too wrong.

A lovely hotel that was central to the city centre. A short walk to the bus station + shops and places to eat + drink should you want to use the hotel facilities. The hotel close to the sea front where you could catch a bus. Bedroom was very spacious + very clean, bathroom was large with shower over bath. The bed was very comfortable but the furniture + decoration could have been a bit more modern. The food was excellent + a varied menu. Small bar but homely feel to it. All staff were very helpful, pleasant and friendly. We would return to this hotel again.

Old fashioned place, but bed was comfortable, had good breakfast, wi-fi and was quiet. Generally populated by older guests (mostly on package tours). Great position for St Helier, short walk to centre of town.

this hotel is good for a 2star rating. was on a quite street just a few mins walk from the beach & bus stops into/out of town at one end of the road at the other shops & eateries. the room was ok a decent sized shower plenty of room to dry yourself in the bathroom. the breakfast was far more than expected [4 cereals,fruit,fruit juice,yougarts,cooked b/fast,toast & tea/coffee]. the staff were friendly and helpful.

This hotel is rated 2* but we were very pleasantly surprised with our accommodation. Large bedroom with ample hanging space and drawers. Very large bathroom with full size bath with shower over. Glass screen not a curtain, and heated towel rail was a bonus.
The staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. Breakfast had a full range of foods from cereals and fruit to full English. The lounge and bar area had plenty of comfortable seating - large leather sofas.
To some people the hotel is dated but to us it has good traditional charm.
The hotel was well located within easy walking distance of beach, bus stops and bus station and the centre of town with its shops.
We were able to use the facilities of the Revere Hotel next door where I was able to swim in the outdoor pool and sunbathe on the terrace.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear would be quieter.

Hotel very well situated for the town, bus station and St Aubin's bay. We were a bit sceptical re the two star, On our arrival we were greeted very cheerfully by the receptionist,and given all info' required for our stay. the bedroom was adequate.--clean, tidy and the bed comfortable. Meals were very good especially the breakfast and noticed a few of the men returning for more and who could blame them. Evening meals were plenty enough for myself but guess the menfolk could have done with a few more veg'.---none the less they were enjoyable and well presented.The staff were particularly pleasant, and thoroughly deserved a good tip!
All in all a very happy stay!

Just returned from 5 nights at the Stafford. Hotel decor is dated but clean. Good Breakfast and Evening meal, there is a small bar if you fancied a drink. Excellent location, 5 minutes from the centre of St Helier. Staff all polite and friendly. We had lovely weather while we were there which meant we had to leave the window open at night, which was very noisy. As previously mentioned, the cafe/bar across the road was used by what must be partially deaf clientel who felt the need to sit around tables into the small hours shouting to each other. There was also quite a bit of noise from late night revellers coming home or going out. I would ask for a room away from the front of the hotel if I went there again. The shower was very poor, you had to run around to get wet.
I think the hotel was good value for money, we had a great time, loved Jersey and would go back.
The choice you have is, pay more and get something more modern and possibly quieter.
