Top Family Hotels in Jersey & Guernsey

Family at Jersey beach

When taking a holiday with the family getting the right balance to keep everyone happy can be tricky.  Whilst Mum and Dad may ideally prefer to slow down, often this is the last thing that the children want!  That’s why it’s great to find a destination that offers something for everyone and most of the time the Channel Islands does just that.

Jersey is the largest of the islands and perhaps offers more to do for families with older children, whilst Guernsey is smaller, quieter and may be the best choice for those who want more of the outdoor life.  Guernsey is also the best base if wishing to explore the smaller islands of Alderney, Herm and Sark, each of which are easily accessible by ferry.

We all have our own opinions and preferences on the best family hotels in the Channel Islands but we thought it would be a good idea to take a different approach and combine our experience with independent reviews.  The following are our choice of  top family hotels in Jersey and Guernsey as backed-up by Trip Advisor’s listing of top family hotels (as of 16 Oct 2014).
