Amy Adejokun Section editor

This is a great hotel for a weekend break at any time of year. No need for a car, because it is a stone's throw from the shops and restaurants in the little village of Saint-Aubin. Also close by: Portelet Bay and Saint-Brelade beach.

    Location 3.0 /10

    Looking over the port of Saint-Aubin, 655 ft from the seafront (shops and restaurants). Saint-Helier and the ferry terminal are 3 miles away (10 min journey). The airport is 2 miles away (5 min journey).

    Accommodation 7.45 /10

    Of the 58 hotel rooms, 2/3 overlook the bay. The others have a view over the hills to the rear or the surrounding buildings. As the hotel is in a traditional area, there is no "undesirable" view. But the rooms do not have balconies and are not particularly spacious (172 ft² for the standard rooms). Try to request one of the rooms that has just been renovated and enjoy the sober decor in beige hues. Note that the Somerville is not aimed at families and children under 4 are not admitted. Facilities in all the accommodation: television, direct telephone, tea/coffee kit, safe (free), bathroom with bath, hairdryer, bathrobes and welcome products from The White Company. However, there is no minibar.

    Overview 7.70 /10

    The Somerville is located in a traditional 3-storey building. Its pleasant exterior space is located higher up: a terrace bar, a bean-shaped pool measuring 50 x 16 ft, a lawn as an extension below the pool. It is quiet (no busy road in the immediate vicinity) and the garden hedges provide protection from the wind and from prying eyes. There are few leisure facilities (loungers, mattresses, parasols, towels provided) but that is sufficient, because the hotel residents do not tend to laze around by the pool. Inside, the style of the reception and the adjoining living room is inspired by a British dandy style (velvet armchairs, abstract paintings, fireplaces and chandeliers).

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    The restaurant is one of the best in Jersey and it is certainly somewhere to try if you like lobster. Lobster is served a la carte or as part of a special menu (£15) with a dessert and a glass of wine (a bit pale). At lunchtime, you can have this delicacy in the dining room by the bar: it has a view of the pool through its vast bay window and has a terrace extension (for snacks only). In the evening, another room situated in the extension welcomes guests. Amongst other good things, try the fried noix de Saint-Jacques, the pea risotto, or a grill. During the strawberry season, the pavlova is famous.

    To know

    There is no beach by the hotel but there is a marina - it is dry at low tide and full at high tide. The closest equipped beach is that of Saint-Brelade. You can get there on foot. Allow 10 min. On site you can hire loungers, parasols and beach tents, and you can pay extra for watersports.

    The cape between Saint-Aubin and Saint-Brelade shelters the creek of Portelet Bay (2,625 ft long by 985 ft wide). With its tower built on a rock in the middle of the beach, it is one of the most photographed bays in Jersey. Definitely worth a look (but take good shoes for going down the staircase carved out of the cliff face). No equipment is for hire on the beach.

      The Pomme d'Or is one of the best-located hotels in Saint-Helier. Perfect for a weekend's shopping (Queens and Kings Street are 5 minutes away on foot) or for a relaxing week between town and beach, because the hotel is not far from the seafront.

      The Queens is a lively hotel, with few rooms, and well-maintained facilities. It is neither in the town centre nor by the sea, but it makes up for its lack of location with access to the pool of a partner hotel 820 ft away.

      Here is a hotel which we recommend if you want to come to Jersey to get away from everything... and have a couple of excursions or an afternoon on the beach. Because the hotel - if you are willing to rent a car - is not far from Saint-Helier and the seaside.

      A calm strip of water (in summer) surrounded by an abundance of ferns and oaks: a hotel occupying a prime site by the sea. There is no surrounding noise, even during high season. The Water's Edge is one of the rare seaside hotels in Jersey where you can be truly remote.
