OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

This is a fine spot on the far corner of St Aubin's Harbour and many locals choose to while away an hour or two on the pub's terrace watching the yachts bob in the water. From the nearby beach, you can walk all the way to St Aubin's Fort at low tide. The Harbour Gallery is the island's largest dedicated gallery space and is packed with works by local artists as well as having a café and programme of crafty workshops.

By plane: flights from London Heathrow to Jersey take around one hour. The hotel is a 10-minute taxi ride from the airport.

By boat: ferries to St Helier run from Poole (4 hours) and Portsmouth (10 hours 20 mins). Book boats.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

There's so much character in this building. From a 15th-century granite spiral staircase in the centre of the property to huge stone fireplaces dating from the 17th century and plenty of wood panelling. A thoughtful refurbishment has added a bright contemporary design to the public rooms with flock velvet chairs and Moroccan tiles.

THE FACILITIES

Facilities are limited as this is essentially an inn with rooms, but the service is friendly and attentive. A little residents' lounge is hidden away in the heart of the hotel and is the place to go for local information or to pick up a book or board game on a wet day.
