Really great staff, very helpful and friendly, much more so than in most hotels - and the more impressive considering at least some are seasonal workers only.
Room practical and comfrtable rather than luxurious, but plenty adequeate as a base for exploring Jersey; everything worked; shower small but functional. Sensible English breakfasts; dinner not hugely imaginative but competent and enjoyable.
Limitations: wifi only in downstairs lounge area (but it works and is free); no car park. If you use the bus, the stop is right outside the front door. Public car park is free from 17:00 to 08:00 and is about 300m walk, no great inconvenience.
Pleasant and surprisingly quiet location on the sea front at Havre des Pas; some "corner shops" and restaurants within a very short walk; can easily walk into St Helier.
Great efforts made to offer window seats at breakfast, with tables being cleared very rapidly to look after the next batch of guests. Because there is so much sea view, the looming bulk of the power station to the west really doesn't detract significantly.
While we were there, after the end of the main holiday season, the clientele was mainly middle-aged or older couples: result a very quiet stay.
