Jazz it up in Jersey & Guernsey

Holidays are made by memories and often it’s the places we stay or visit that provide a special service, have a beautiful view or go that extra mile to make you feel welcome and relaxed that have us returning year after year.

The Channel Islands are blessed with an array of stunning views and places that offer great food. In fact, outside London, Jersey has the most Michelin starred restaurants per square mile! The islands are also a great place for walks and a refreshing walk followed by a drink or good meal in front of a log fire can be just the prescription that’s needed to banish any blues.

Guernsey’s Old Government House Hotel enjoys a reputation for opulent surroundings and first class service where relax and indulge have a whole new meaning. Set in the heart of St Peter Port, the hotel offers a warm welcome to guests. Enjoy afternoon tea overlooking Guernsey’s pretty gardens, a spa treat, some authentic Indian cuisine in The Curry Room or head to the cosy Crown Club where intimate surroundings make it a great place to enjoy a light bite.

Eclectic French style

The Revere Hotel proves a warm welcome and memorable stay doesn’t have to cost the earth. The family owned boutique hotel was once a 17th century coaching house and has now built up a reputation for good food and a quirky style. Adorned with original artworks it makes for a fascinating break.

Some more ideas:

Many of the four and five star hotels have worked hard to gain a reputation for quality and care but perhaps Longueville Manor in Jersey has gone the furthest with its own luxury yacht which is available for guest charter. Whether its a spa break, shopping trip or that little something which is extra special, take a look at our luxury Guernsey or luxury Jersey hotels to gain some more inspiration.
