Jersey

Annabelle's verdict:

With wall to wall sunshine, glorious white-sand beaches, pretty countryside and a unique French-English feel, Jersey is ideal for a stress-free break within easy striking distance. Explore historic castles, hidden coves, pretty villages - and Michelin-starred restaurants. Stay in the charming town of St Helier or a rural retreat in the island’s lush interior.

Recommended hotel group: Seymour Hotels

Seymour Hotels says

We’re fortunate enough to call Jersey our home and we love nothing more than seeing guests discover our island’s natural beauty, stunning beaches, rich heritage, exciting experiences and vibrant restaurant scene. The fact that so many return time after time is testament to the way Jersey makes you feel – re-energised and relaxed.

Each season brings it own special charms and attractions and it’s so easy to get here, year-round – Jersey is just a short flight away from more than 30 UK airports or a ferry ride from Poole.

Our small-but-perfectly-formed hotel group was established in 1920 and is still run by the Seymour family – hospitality runs through our veins.

If you like to be in the heart of things, the four-star Pomme d’Or Hotel is located in the centre of St Helier with shops, restaurants, the harbour and the golden sands of St Aubin’s Bay on your doorstep. “The Pomme” is a slice of Jersey history with guests from Victor Hugo to Dame Vera Lynn. In 1945, it was the focal point for the Liberation of Jersey celebrations. Treat yourselves to one of our refurbished rooms overlooking Liberation Square and the harbour – check out the latest special offers.

The three-star Merton Hotel has more of a resort feel, and is a popular choice for families during the school holidays. There’s so much to do within the hotel itself, which has its own Aquadome and Flowrider®, an entertainment programme, kids activities and gorgeous gardens. Room options include twins, doubles and family suites and our special offers are always worth checking.

Our sister property, Merton Suites, is the ideal choice if you prefer the freedom and space of self-catering accommodation with hotel services on tap. See the latest special offers.

If you want to simply relax and escape, Greenhills Country House Hotel is hard to beat. This four-star rural gem is as tranquil as it is luxurious with superb personal service, outstanding cuisine, a pretty outdoor pool, courtyard gardens and beautiful rooms. If you can tear yourselves away, there are some fabulous countryside walks on the doorstep. Find out the latest deals.
