BEST HOTELS IN JERSEY
Located a mere 14 miles from mainland France, and historically part of the Duchy of Normandy, Jersey has retained its lengthy French heritage, which is reflected in the dual-language road signs, rural cider farms and quirky petanque clubs.
The largest of the Channel Islands, Jersey is nine miles long and five miles wide and criss-crossed with verdant country lanes. Famously one of the sunniest corners of Britain, the island has a tropical feel in parts with palm trees and wide white-sand beaches.
Here, you can spend the day at Jersey Zoo, part of the Durrell Foundation, which was founded by late writer and naturalist Gerald Durrell (check out our trip to Corfu with his wife Lee Durrell). You can also go beach hopping around the south of island, or explore the Jersey War Tunnels, a subterranean network of tunnels built by the Germans during World War II.
Whatever you have planned for your holiday to Jersey, you’ll want an excellent base from where to enjoy it, which is why we’ve rounded up the very best hotels in Jersey for 2022.
Whether it’s enjoying the Ayush wellness spa with its indoor pool, hydrotherapy suite and Ayurvedic treatments in Hotel de France or the Michelin-starred food at The Club in St Helier, check out our selection of the best hotels in Jersey.
Looming like a grand French chateau overlooking St Helier, the Hotel de France has glorious sea views and a brace of fine dining restaurants – it’s a firm nod to its Gallic neighbours. Built in the 1860s in the classic Haussmann style, inside it’s all sweeping spiral staircases, bowed ceilings and ornate coving.
The accommodation is a mix of classic heritage rooms, which have high ceilings and period furnishings and evoke the belle époque appeal of the hotel’s heyday. The spacious spa rooms are more contemporary in style, some have arched windows and sea views.
The biggest draw is the hotel’s spectacular Ayush wellness spa, which has an indoor pool, a hydrotherapy suite and offers a range of Ayurvedic treatments.
Originally built in 1850, the sprawling L’Horizon Beach Hotel has fine views over the wide flat sands of St Brelade’s Bay. It’s well placed for exploring the south of the island, with attractions like the charming Reg’s Award Winning Garden and the 16th-century Elizabeth Castle.
The rooms are bright and breezy and all have a distinct seaside vibe. The best rooms have spacious balconies and sea views. Here, you can relax by the indoor pool, brave the cool waters of the English Channel or kick back in the spa, which has a sauna, steam room and offers a range of treatments. L’Horizon has a brace of restaurants, including the Grill, which mainly serves sparklingly fresh seafood.
Overlooking St Aubin’s pretty harbour, the Old Court House Inn is a traditional Jersey pub transformed into a boutique hotel. It’s moments from St Aubin’s Fort and the Jersey War Tunnels and makes a great base for exploring the island.
Originally, a wealthy merchant’s home from the 15th century, it has stacks of character from the arched granite newel staircase, a fireplace from 1611, and the loot room called the Judge’s Chambers, which is now a private dining room.
There are 10 bedrooms, each individually styled with a rustic-chic vibe; think plaid throws and vintage telephones. For a real treat, book the superior suite which has a four-poster bed and a hot tub on the private terrace. After a day of exploring, relax in a brace of charming bars, or dine out on seasonal island dishes in the stylish brasserie.
With fabulous far-reaching views over St Ouen’s Bay, the contemporary Atlantic Hotel on a windswept headland in St Brelade is set in six acres of beautifully manicured gardens. Perfect for a golfing getaway, the hotel is right next door to La Moye Golf Course and moments from the Jersey Wetland Centre. You can relax by the outdoor pool, play tennis or wander down to the local beach, a five-mile stretch on uninterrupted sands banked by dunes.
The rooms are warmly decorated in classic tones, some with sea views. Or upgrade to a larger garden studio which comes with a private terrace.
After a day of exploring the beach, you can feast on seven courses of Jersey’s finest bounty in the Ocean restaurant, a fine dining spot which specialises in locally caught seafood.
Moments from the sandy sweep of St Brelade’s Bay, the sprawling St Brelade’s Bay Hotel is set in lush, well-kept gardens is just the spot for a relaxing island getaway. With a brace of indoor and outdoor pools, a tennis court and a spa, not to mention a beach within minutes, there’s plenty to keep the whole family happy.
The 70-plus rooms are beautifully styled: think seaside-chic with warm creams and blues. Many have balconies and sea views, others overlook the manicured gardens. Dining in the restaurant is a real grown-up treat. The chef champions Jersey’s finest produce and serves up platters of locally caught lobster and crab, and buttery Jersey Royals. Be sure to keep room for afternoon tea, which is served on the terrace.
The spectacular views overlooking the marina are everything in this swish waterfront hotel. Moments from St Helier’s shopping district, Liberty Wharf, the Jersey Museum and Liberation Square, The Royal Yacht Hotel has the vibe of a super-yacht and is right in the heart of the action. At the heart of the hotel is the subterranean Spa Sirene, an adult-only haven with a vitality pool, saunas, aromatherapy steam rooms and experience showers.
Sleek rooms are generously sized and decorated in nautical blues and bronze. The best rooms are found at the front, the Gold Deluxe and Platinum level, all of which have balconies and sea views. Here, you can feast on Jersey’s ocean bounty in Sirocco, a fine dining restaurant, or go for all-day dining at the more modern Zephyr bar and restaurant.

Surrounded by 18 acres of lush private estate, Longueville Manor is widely regarded as one of the best hotels in Jersey. Oozing stacks of period charm, parts of the house date back to the 14th century and can be seen in the medieval fireplaces and oak-panelled dining room. This is five-star service all the way.
The homely rooms range from the classic period style with four poster beds and antique furnishings, to country-style contemporary chic.
In the palm-dotted grounds, you’ll find a heated outdoor pool, tennis courts and hot tubs. You can relax in the spa or even charter the house yacht for a spin around the bay. All of this stokes up an appetite for the seven-course tasting menu in the restaurant.

Moments from Rozel Bay, a picturesque fishing harbour on the north coast of the island, and close to Durrell’s Jersey Zoo, this grand 19th-century manor house is now a charmingly traditional boutique hotel surrounded by acres of woodland.
At Chateau La Chaire, you climb a sweeping carved wooden staircase up to some of the 14 rooms, which are all classically decorated with a neutral palette with polished period-style furnishings and chandeliers. The fancier rooms feature grand four-poster beds and spa baths.
Dinner is a fine-dining delight. Like stepping back a century or so, the dining room has oak-panelling and crisp white tablecloths, and serves freshly caught local seafood and fine Jersey beef.
Warm and enchanting, this 17th-century country house hotel overlooks the lush green valleys of St Peter and makes a lovely rural escape. Hidden away amongst Jersey’s famous ‘green lanes’, a network of country lanes where the speed limit is just 15mph, Greenhills is close to many of Jersey’s main sights, including the War Tunnels, a fascinating subterranean network built by the Germans during World War II.
There are 33 rooms, all beautifully decorated in a country-chic manner; think warm plaids, floral hints and oh-so plush soft furnishings. In the warmer months, you can bathe by the small outdoor pool. Dinner is served in the elegant restaurant, a feast of Jersey’s finest produce. There’s also a cosy bar for nightcaps.
Set in the heart of island capital St Helier, this stylish boutique hotel is just the place for a fancy foodie getaway. At its heart is Bohemia, the island’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, where chef supreme, Callum Graham, serves exceptional tasting menus. A rather fine afternoon tea is also served in the bar.
All the rooms at The Club Hotel & Spa are warmly decorated in a soft palette of chocolates and creams; many have floor-to-ceiling windows which flood the rooms with light. After a potter around St Helier, maybe relax for an hour or two in the spa, a subterranean delight with a saltwater pool, thermal suite and a range of Ayurvedic treatments.
