Stayed for one night in order to catch and early ferry. Beautifully situated in a pretty part of St. Helier with a seaside feel - nice walk into the town centre. The room was basic but bright, airy and clean with lovely smelling bedding. This is a beautifully kept older building full of charm and character. Lots of safe, on site parking. From reception staff, dining staff, bar staff, night staff to managerial staff, every member of the team were friendly, courteous and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble and they seem to value their guests.
It is an old style boutique hotel. Pool was super small. Great view as it is located at the sea front. Hotel did not provide any slippers so i had to walk bare food to pool area, as i did not bring my flip flops. At the breakfast, toaster was broken so we had no toast.
We have returned home today from a wonderful week at The Ommaroo. We had upgraded to a balcony room and half-board and were not disappointed. Although the evening menu was not extensive there were 'specials' for all 3 courses and we chose these on several occasions. The food was wonderful and really well presented. The buffet breakfast was extensive - fruits, juices, continental croissants, cheese and ham, but a full range of cooked selections - bacon, sausage, eggs, tomato, beans, mushrooms and hash browns. We wanted half-board as being out all day meant we could relax and not stress about eating out, although there are some very good looking cal restaurants. The staff were all so friendly and helpful. Can I give particular credit to John, Lillian, Cris and Cyril (I hope I've got the names right). Can I also praise the young Irish lad on his 'holiday' job - he was really pleasant. Our room faced the sea on the second floor and we heard no noise from other guests, as you sometimes get, and the road traffic didn't cause us any sleeping problems. The bathroom was huge and the room was cleaned and coffee/tea replenished every day. You could always get extra at reception. We used the pool to cool down after a hot day out and a few swims in the Lido opposite were great. We also had some wonderful beach walks when the tide was out. The hotel is right on a frequent bus route into St. Helier but we found walking in was a good start to the day. We will return!…
We spent two nights at the Ommaroo hotel and enjoyed our stay very much. It is perfectly located for the Havre Des Pas beach and lido. The centre of St Helier is a short walk away, either through the tunnel or avoiding it. The car park was very handy and the pool, while small, was pleasant. Breakfast was fine and the reception staff were helpful. The hotel has old-world appeal and we would stay there again.
We had a lovely long weekend here. Friendly, helpful staff, comfortable clean room, decent breakfast. All in all, a lovely stay, would recommend. We even had free entry to a local festival which was a bonus.
We had a very nice stay. Clean and comfortable rooms with great bedding. The staff was very helpful and kind. The breakfast was good. The only drawback was the lack of AC considering the extreme heat. It would also have been great to have towels for the beach.
Excellent stay at the seafront Ommaroo Hotel in Jersey. Good location and easy to walk into St Helier, depending on route anywhere from 10-30 mins walk. Good secure parking and helpful staff. Room was standard double but plenty of room and cleaned well each day. Breakfast was a good selection and after informing the team I have Coeliac disease and require gluten free food, I was shown which items were suitable and offered gluten free toast. Comfy bed and room, overall a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend!
Loved this hotel, we had a sea view room on the first floor and woke to amazing views every day. The room was large and the bathroom clean and spacious. Breakfast is buffet style and a huge choice of fruit, youghurt, cereal, cheese and meats plus full English and juices. Staff were helpful The only niggles were - shower leaked into the bathroom quite badly due to being an open style without a door; also the mirror in front of the dressing table was not centre so when. You sat on the chair you could only see a quarter of your face and finally there was no full length mirror
Spacious sea view room (number 12) . Balcony overlooking the sea and lido, got the sunshine middle to early evening of the day. Fabulous staff, especially the lovely strawberry blonde hair elegant young lady, didn’t get her name but she is an absolute assett. Fabulous breakfast. Lovely sunny clean pool. Close to bars shops . The road noise others speak of is just morning traffic heading to work then afternoon heading home. Really didn’t bother me. I am a terrible sleeper so I sat on my balcony every night for a couple hours reading , in the wee small hours, listening to the beach parties at the weekend, just nice people enjoying themselves, love to hear fun happening. But as soon as I went back in couldn’t hear them, and , this was sleeping with the patio doors wide open, but the heavy curtains closed. Which blocked any noise! Brilliant. The hotel is not pristine like a four star, I could have fussed around and said the carpet had the odd mark etc, but who does that???? It’s lovely, big rooms with Victorian character, if you like period property you will love it! We did!…
We had a room with a partial sea view. The room was spotlessly clean and the refreshments were replenished daily. The food was plentiful and excellent. My only criticism is that there was only vegetarian chilli as the only vegetarian option every day .(not such a big problem as I do eat fish!)The restaurant staff could not have been more helpful. Nothing was too much trouble.
