“Somewhat dated and geared for older generation”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We found the hotel to be pleasant but somewhat dated. It's comfortable and clean and both reception and restaurant staff are friendly, efficient and helpful but it still has the feel of an English seaside town guesthouse, albeit a very large one. The guests seemed to be primarily of the older generation and entertainment seemed geared to that market. Bingo on one night of our stay and a cabaret-style sing-a-long band on another. The town centre is only a few minutes walk away which is very handy if choosing to eat out in the evenings. No complaints really but might enjoy it a bit more in another 20 years or so.

Reception staff are helpful and polite. Restaurant staff are helpful and polite. The "trouble-shooter" is considerably less of both. We had a problem with a difference between what we had purchased (letter of confirmation) and what they (she) said it meant. Eventually it was sorted (by a receptionist) and all was OK but it doesn't help with a restful start to a holiday. During the week I witnessed another new customer on the receiving end of more disgusting browbeating despite having a letter confirming her deal (The browbeater - tight dress and overly high heeled shoes - was of the opinion that the deal should not have been offered without her consent - again another member of staff was delegated to sort it out, which she did satisfactorily.
First night the cabaret was very loud and intrusive as we were trying to sleep - the singing was so clear every word was understandable and the passing traffic drowned out)

Well I started with a moan but the rest was good. The food and service were excellent and the staff could not do enough for us. The hotel is well placed for the town and transport around the island. The "tourist table" is well stocked and regularly replenished.
Parking is a bit tight but the member of staff in charge is very helpful.
On balance (with the above exemption) it is a very good hotel.

This hotel is on the main road, a bus stop next to it. And it is popular with the older generation. The makeup is of a hotel of times past, but in good shape keeping up with our times. Wireless works without problem and internet workplaces (I booked Proms tickets there) are at hand. Having had half-board, my breakfast kept me marching all day long and the dinner saturated me. Staff was friendly and helpful.

This was my second stay at the Mayfair, and it was as excellent as the first time. Friendly and welcoming staff, well equipped modern rooms with a really comfortable bed, and welcoming lounges. The Wifi and public internet facilities gave me a chance to keep up with my work and personal e-mails.

In desperate need of double glazing as our room was on a main road and the noise of traffic was bad. Would benefit from a room check to ensure everything works as our heater did not and we were frozen as it was winter. Room ok bathroom nice unfortunately we usually remember the bad more than the good. Rooms need soft close bars to stop constant slamming doors.

Stayed for 3 nights in Feb 2014. Family group of 7 in 5 rooms. Good value (3 nights for the price of 2). No single supplement. Decoration a little tired. Some rooms are on the main road and double glazing isn't great. However exceptionally good value for the money.

Short walk to center of St Helier.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. Some double rooms have larger beds too. Some rooms have baths (with shower ove...
