Hotel Jerbourg
Ranked #4 of 9 Hotels in St Martins
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 June 2013

We stayed for a week after booking online. The area I think is the best in Guernsey with stunning sea views and some really spectacular coastal footpaths. The Jerbourg Point Area is the highest on the island, which gives it the stunning views.The peace and quiet are great, not too far off the beaten track. An extremely good bus service stops outside the hotel and runs every 20 minutes to St Peter Port.
The rooms are clean and adequate. The public areas are clean and have the charm of an older hotel. A recent refurb has brought the place up to a high standard.
The staff are all polite, friendly and very efficient. The food is of a very high standard, the pastries are fabulous!
The only gripe I would have is that the breakfast could be hotter.
This really is worth more than 3 stars.

Room Tip: If you are on a budget and don't want to slash out on the more expensive rooms, ask for room six...

A splendid hotel which we will recommend to our friends. We stayed in St Peter Port last year and found The Jerbourg and said if we returned to Guernsey we would love to try it. We did and it was great. The staff are lovely and nothing was too much trouble and the other guests were all nice and friendly. We took our car over and it was only a few minutes into town. We loved walking off the terrace straight onto the coastal path with views to Herm, Sark and Jersey.
The breakfasts were good and we had some evenings in, the bar snacks were good.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the refurbished rooms. The up graded rooms are go, especially Fermain.

We stayed a week at this hotel which is located on top of a cliff with views of the channel and some of the other Channel Islands. France can be seen on a clear day. The rocky shoreline is just gorgeous and the hotel is well situated for walking the cliff walk and, if one desires, taking the 300 steps to the Petite Port beach (at low tide only as the beach disappears at high tide.)

A newly organized bus route takes one into St. Peter Port and stops just outside the front door of the hotel. Guernsey is stunningly beautiful but driving is not so easy and parking is just about impossible, so the bus is a major plus.

Breakfast is served in a sun-lit room with entertainment provided by ducks in the pool, a pheasant pair trotting around in the yard calling to each other and birds flying around. Freshly-made croissants and gache (gosh) the traditional Guernsey bread are among the many items waiting for your enjoyment at breakfast. The food for the other meals is equally good and there are magnificent sweets, created by the chef and one of the staff in a case in the bar/lounge.

The staff, all of them, are friendly, helpful, pleasant, and interested in their guests. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. BTW don't miss the Guernsey Tapestry -- it is amazing!

Room Tip: We stayed in a superior room on the ground level -- no steps!!!

Absolutely fabulous setting, if you don't want to be in centre of the action come here. The room was at the top of the hotel overlooking the sea which could be a problem if you’re none too nimble ‘cos it’s a lot of stairs and narrow corridors to the rooms (no lift). The room was newly decorated and spick and span and the beds were a joy, so you’ll get a good nights sleep. The breakfast was a buffet affair which worked best when there were a number of people staying at the hotel otherwise order off the breakfast menu. Evening meal was of a high standard with excellent service. Alternatively there is a restaurant a short walk away.

Just returned from a marvellous break on the lovely island of Guernsey, we selected the Hotel Jerbourg by chance and previous reviews, and boy were we pleased we did. We arrived early on a flight from Gatwick, and thought we might leave our bags, but our room was ready, so we checked in. We had a standard room which was quite adequate, but it would be worth upgrading. The hotel is in a quiet part of the island, facing Jersey, Sark and Herm, and if you like panoramic vista's, the views are to die for. The hotel staff are absolutely superb, and compliment the overall ambience of the hotel. Eating in the restaurant, and elsewhere on Guernsey is not cheap, but the food is excellent, with an abundance of fresh fish and seafood, drop dead gorgeous cakes and pastries, and some of the best wines we have had anywhere. Buses stop right outside the hotel, and only cost £1 to anywhere on the island. St Peter Port is only a short hop away, with plenty of eating places and really good shops. With lots of things to do it's easy to fill a day, and a trip to Herm or Sark is worthwhile, returning to the Jerbourg for a superb meal, and a great night's sleep. Can't wait to go back. One word of warning, there is no lift at the hoel, so if you are upstairs, and have a lot of luggage, you may struggle, but an offer from Stacey ( I'm pretty strong ) on reception of assistance may be worth taking up!

Definately more than a 3* Hotel.
We have just had a wonderful 3 day visit to the Jerbourg for a fabulous family wedding.
This hotel really doees offer value for money and quality in spades. Nothing was too much trouble by any of the staff. We were warmly welcomed last thursday and given a spectacular sea view room. A truly idyllic location atop the high cliffs. Many rooms recently updated to a very high standard, others planned. The public rooms are immaculate, comfortable also offering spectacular views across the well kept gardens to the sea. The wedding reception was executed magnificently in a beautiful new conservatory, which is normally the main dining room. The food was delicious, generous and imaginative. Breakfast from a buffet gave many choices and was again very generous.
It gives me great pleasure as a seasoned traveller to heap praise on this privately owned true Oasis of quality.
At nearly midnight on the night of the wedding party, the owner Paul was still hard at work creating the most delicious pastries, gateaux etc for the following day. Afternoon tea alone here is just a joy to behold.
"Privately owned" is without doubt the key, as Paul seems to be tirelessly working more than eighteen hours a day to create "Customer Delight"
Good luck to him and his commited staff and we will certainly return.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view and pay the extra. So worth it!!

A friendly and efficiently run hotel that was very comfortable to stay in.
The evening meal was of a very high standard and the service was attentive without being 'pushy'.
The afternoon cake display had plenty of choice and was far too tempting and I submitted more than once!
The views from my room and the adjacent cliff tops were stunning.

Room Tip: The 1st floor sea view rooms are my choice.
