Reviewed 10 September 2021 via mobile

We were a little concerned upon reading reviews when we booked to stay here. Yes, the hotel is dated, worn and in need of a bit of modernisation. We found out whilst staying here that the hotel and its sister hotel down the road have been threatened with a compulsory purchase order which maybe why they are not able to spend on upgrading the rooms.
However we found the hotel clean, very friendly and helpful staff and the breakfast is amazing! The location is spot on, 5 minutes to the beach and town centre, which more than outweighs the tired decor!
If you want to holiday in jersey and don't want to spend a fortune on somewhere to basically lay your head at night, I would recommend this quaint cosy little old fashioned hotel.

Looking back through Tripadvisor, it seems I was the first person to write a review of this lovely place. I have just returned from a few days possibly saying goodbye to the place forever as they are looking to demolish to to make way for apartments. The Stafford will always hold so many memories for myself and my family , from our first trip there in 1974. Over the may trips we had there over the years we made some lifetime friends, unfortunately lots of them have passed away now, but when I walked into the reception last Friday, all of their memories came cascading back to me. If I am the last person to review this Jewel then I feel honoured that I have had the pleasure to have stayed there. Thanks to all the staff over the years, so attentive and helpful and thanks to my Lovely Mum and Dad with whom I made a lifetime of memories that I will never ever forget. Love you Llew & Margaret Davey, my perfect Parents xxx

This hotel is well located for all facilities in St Helier. The rooms are large, clean & comfortable. Breakfast is excellent & well managed. There is a bar & comfortable lounge. The moaning minnies who complain about the colour of the bathroom suite should get a life. For the price one pays here, there is NOTHING to complain about. I have stayed at many much worse hotels & paid a lot more. Well done Stafford.

Just as others have said this hotel is really in need of a refurb. The carpet was so stained in our room we didn't want to take our shoes off, the pillows were about as thick as a cheese slice and the shower head was broken so most of the water leaked out the side making it impossible to have a proper shower. The bathroom was very dark and we reported the fact the light over the mirror wasn't working but it hadn't been fixed by the time we left. We had been up since 4am on the day we arrived so decided to have dinner in the hotel rather than go out only to discover the restaurant was shut for two nights. The following evening we returned to the hotel at 10pm planning on going straight to bed as we had an early start the next morning only to discover there was live entertainment literally a few feet away from our bedroom door. They shut the fire door to try and keep the noise down but it still kept us awake. It would be really helpful if management could inform customers if the restaurant was going to be shut or if there was going to be entertainment until late. On the plus side the hotel is in a good location and the staff are hard working, very polite and helpful. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and the food was lovely. If you want to feel like you are in an episode of Fawlty Towers this is the hotel for you!
