“Good hotel in good location, and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2009

This is a decent hotel and good value for money. I was amused by an earlier reviewer who was upset by the mature age of guests, and felt he/she was in "a nursing home". I didn't realise we seniors were so threatening! But this is a fact of life; there is a large section of the population which is over 60, the over-60's probably have the time to travel, but many can't afford the expensive ritzy hotels. So there.
To my great pleasure there was a jazz festival on at the hotel during my stay. Not only that, there was a good blues concert on at the Art Centre, about 4 minutes away from the hotel. Location is quiet yet central, rooms are well appointed, and there is good gym facility too.

What a nice experience this hotel was, stayed here with my young family in October 2008 and was very pleased with everything it had to offer. I suffer with coeliacs but the catering and service staff were excellent, they catered for all my needs and more. The hotel was clean, modern and friendly, as for all the old people who were there, well what a nice change from rowdy groups of younger people you ysually come across. Could not fault the location, only wish it was on anicer island!

We stayed at the Mayfair from 20-23 Feb 09, room 305, for the hotel's Soul Weekender which was great. Soul music in the afternoons and evenings, a lovely clean, warm and welcoming hotel. Very nice food and excellent service. Hotel is beautifully clean and modern. Nice pool and steam room. An exercise suite as well. Two computers in reception where guests can access the internet for free. Couldn't fault the place at all. The hotel is about 10 mins walk from the main shopping area of St Helier.

St Helier is a decent sized town with lots of nice shops and marinas. However, it is totally dead on a Sunday. Nothing open, no shops, virtually no bars. The streets are deserted and feel a little bit scary at night. We went looking for a pub for a quiet drink on the Sunday evening at the Soul Weekend entertainment finished on the Saturday and came across some dodgy characters while we were looking for a bar. So if you're in St Helier on a Sunday, you might be as well staying in a hotel with a bar or entertainment.
so that you've no need to venture out. It's probably different in the summer season but walking around at night is not something I'd recommend in winter.

We went to Jersey for two days to see the island and tried to find a cheap hotel as we didn't want to spend much time in the room and just needed a place to stay overnight. However, next time we will definitely spend more money.
The majority of the guests are aged over 55 whereas the hotel was advertised as a place for families. All the facilities including the pool, sauna as well as the gym and the rooms look old-fashioned and absolutely need a refurbishment.
We booked the room with Jersey.com on a B&B basis. Arriving in the breakfast hall anybody seemed to take notice of us so that we seated ourselves anywhere after a couple of minutes. An uninterested waiter took our order after we had asked him to do it. When we finally got our cooked breakfast, the very unfriendly as well as unsympathetic supervisor informed us that we would have to pay for our breakfast. We told him that we had booked on a B&B basis and that we were not informed before. But referring to his guest list where we were registered with continental breakfast he sent us to reception. When we stated our problem at the check-out the receptionist told us that we don't have to pay.
Confused about the contrarily information, displeased by the staff's attitude and still hungry after the unfinished breakfast, we left the hotel and knew that we'd never come back!

  • Liked — our room was ready at 10am

We booked this hotel with our local newspaper & didn't know what to expect because it sounded too good to be true for the price we paid.

The welcome we got on arrival at the hotel made us feel special & we were given mulled wine, sausage rolls & mince pies. It was "Turkey & Tinsle" week but we didn't know when we booked & so we had a lovely suprise.

Because it was "Turkey & Tinsle" our 1st night was Christmas eve & we had a lovely meal & great entertainment afterwards, the staff went to so much trouble for everyone it was lovely.

The day after was Christmas day & Father Christmas showed up after the evening meal along with pixies & elfs. We had party hats, ballons etc & again some great entertainment.

Night after was New Years eve & again great food & a real party atmosphere. Bagpipes played in the New year at 11pm which was sureal :-) When it is Christmas & New year i think we will be a bit dissapointed after the earlier ones we have celebrated in Jersey.

All in all the hotel & all the staff were top notch & if the price had been 3 times what we paid it would have been worth it. The prices at the bar & the little coffee shop were very good.

This hotel has a jacuzzi, swiming pool & steam room & free internet acess in reception & was refurbished earlier this year. Every room is absolutely spotless.

We will be going again early next year & can't wait to enjoy the lovely food on the menu & some more great laughs.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone, Jersey is a beautiful island & if you have never been then you don't know what you are missing..!!
