My family and I recently spent three nights at The Revere hotel located in the heart of St. Helier, Jersey Channel Islands. Conveniently situated close to the town’s marina, St. Aubins Bay, beautiful downtown and town’s main shopping centre, this charming hotel was definitely a good pick. I really appreciated the history, ambiance and the unique character of this 17th century coach house. Hotel’s decor reminds me of old world charm. Our room was tastefully decorated, comfortable and very clean. Bathroom was nicely renovated and spotless.
This hotel offers two dining areas: Doran’s Courtyard Bistro and locally renowned for its excellent food and ambiance, The Candlelight restaurant. You won’t regret having breakfast, lunch or dinner, enjoying a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The buffet style breakfast was excellent and surprised us with all the options, starting from breakfast cereal, wonderful pastries, breads, continuing with different styles of eggs, English bacon, beans, sausages, mushrooms, baked tomatoes, and other goodies, finishing with fresh fruit, coffee or tea and MORE pastries! Oh yes, that was my Jersey breakfast…Yummy.The restaurant also caters to vegetarians so not to worry if that’s your preference. Before dinner, you can have a nice drink in the restaurant’s bar, being entertained by the outstanding barman – Tony. For dinner, you will have an option between ‘a la carte’ and set menu.The £20 set dinner menu is excellent value.The hotel and restaurant staff were efficient, attentive and pleasant. Some visitors might think that the hotel decor is dated but I found nothing wrong with it. In my opinion the decor added to the charm and ambiance of the place. The only minus of the hotel is the lack of parking space included in the price, some morning street noise if your room faces the street and lack of elevator. By the same token, there is a multi-story car park just outside of the hotel’s main entrance. You need to buy a ‘scratch’ parking ticket.
We really enjoyed staying in this hotel and would be happy to go back.
