A sophisticated four-star hotel in an enviable location on a headland overlooking St Ouen's bay.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

You'd need to be a millionaire or oligarch to get a house in such a prime spot in Jersey. The hotel sits on extensive grounds on a headland overlooking the dramatic sweep of St Ouen's Bay, known locally as the five-mile beach. You can walk to that beach if you can brave the steep climb back. La Moye Golf Course borders the hotel grounds and the Jersey Wetland Centre is a five-minute drive away.

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 minutes). Book a boat.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

The hotel feels like a luxury villa, with exposed granite brickwork, interesting pieces of artwork on the walls, sculptures and floral displays on the side tables and antique chairs paired with contemporary sofas. A baby grand piano sits at the entrance to the restaurant, which is often played in the evening.

THE FACILITIES

The service is attentive and personal and facilities include tennis courts with a sea view, a tranquil outdoor pool and terrace and an indoor pool with a hot tub. Walks from the property include one to the end of the headland and another down through the dunes to the beach.
