We stayed 3 nights here very clean room good breakfast Rodger & Maria are nice friendly people, room was small but OK as you only sleep there. location excellent about 20mins walk to St Helier center bus stop at end of street. Not a lot of parking space so if you can leave the car the island has an excellent bus service so you can get to anywhere you want to see.
Had a family room for a week. Everything was great. Clean, tidy helpful friendly staff. Breakfast included was great. Only downside if there was one was limited parking and very narrow road.Would stay again.
We have just come back from a week's stay at the St Francis Guest House. Let's start with the very positive.....the location is fabulous, a short 10-15 min walk into St Helier, ideally positioned for exploring the island (which is beautiful). Our room (one of four) was very good - a comfy mattress, a great power shower and separate loo, which is quite unusual these days. The breakfast was great and plentiful - fruit juices, fresh fruit, a variety of cereals, then a full cooked with toast, tea/coffee. Absolutely no complaints. During our week' stay, our bedding was changed once (which I didn't expect) and our towels were changed at least twice, which was really good. The rooms are refreshed every morning after breakfast, which is I think more than a 'normal' guest house would do.. On a slightly negative note (but shouldn't detract from the above) - be aware that there are only two car parking spaces outside the B&B, one of which is usually taken by the owner. To be honest, if I owned a guest house with limited parking, I'd find somewhere to park my car.......so in a four room guest house, it is likely that if you're using a car, you might struggle. The bus service seemed very good from what another guest said, so if you flew over and didn't want to hire a car, you can easily get around the island. There was no mattress protector on the bed, although the pillows did have protectors. I expect a protector whether I'm in a hotel, guest house or even an AirBnB property. Finally, there is some noise at the back of the property - we had fantastic weather so had to have windows open - there is some noise from dogs late at night/early morning, and be aware that Sunday night seems to be the night that the bins get taken out! However, I should point out that I am a very light sleeper and wake at the slightest noise - my husband slept through the whole lot!! All in all, this is a great budget guest house, fab location for St Helier, excellent breakfasts and plenty of it. I would recommend.…
Last minute trip to Jersey to catch up with friends. Very pleasant and helpful host. Lovely room. Yummy breakfast. Ideal location for where we needed to go. The dogs made it feel like home. Only down fall is the walls are very thin so can hear other guests, other than that no complaints and would definitely stay here again. Thank you
Hi would just like to say what a lovely place this was to stay lovely room bedding really clean and fresh .rooms clean and tidy Breakfast good gentlemen owner very nice helpful friendly about 10 from town center
The lock was faulty and wouldn't open so we had to go in around the back the TV had to be manually switched on and off and to do so you had to stand on a stool to do so and I told the owner and he said he would fix it but he didn't even after I had informed him that I had back surgery will never stay here again
Although we had arranged what time we would arrive my first impression wasn't good as the door bell didn't work. We were just phoning the number displayed on the door when Robert twitched the blinds and came to let us in. He gave a demonstration as to how to unlock the door and asked that we try the unlocking process whilst he stood and watched. This tricky door opening has been an issue for previous guests I believe. We were shown to our room which looked cosy. It was only during our first night that we discovered the pit falls!! The bathroom door didn't shut properly and had no lock on it. During the night I had to wedge the bath mat under the door to stop it banging. The main door to our room rattled constantly. Mind you with the level of incessant noise outside all night, every night, a door rattling was the least of our concerns. Over the course of a three night stay I managed to get a total of nine hours sleep. The bed was comfortable, the room long and narrow (my friend and I had to shimmy passed each other when doing anything). The shower cubical small & the hot water had a habit of going cold mid shower. The first morning we went down for breakfast to find the "dining room" consisted of a dining table set for 10 people. Fortunately there was only three residents on this particular morning. We were asked if we would like a full English breakfast, tea or coffee. I asked for tea - I got a large pot of hot water with two individual "one pot" t-bags in it, the tea didn't have the strength to crawl out of the pot! I went for coffee the next morning.... The breakfast was basic and small, the orange juice had a strange tang to it. The microwave was constantly pinging, I got the feeling this was how the bacon was cooked or warmed up as it was like leather! The two following mornings of our stay there were 10 guests so we all squeezed around the table together. The room was far too small for this number of people and with a sofa and sideboard in the room as well it made moving around very difficult. I'm surprised no one ended up having their breakfast served up in their lap or thrown down their back. I was a little taken aback to find that while we were having breakfast our room had been "cleaned". Very nice but if I'd known this I wouldn't have left my handbag in the room unattended. Value for money - certainly not. Would I use this guest house again - NO! If I couldn't get in anywhere else I'd choose another holiday destination. …
We enjoyed our visit to Jersey and our stay at the St. Francis. Our host was most attentive. A little far from the centre of town - we walked most of the time. On the night that we rented a car, the parking in front was very tight. That is probably a function of island life.
Very friendly host, nice dogs (bark a lot at night) small bathroom but usable, very nice comfy beds made up again while you're having breakfast, great Wi-Fi but a dodgy TV, would have liked a larger dining room with separate tables instead of one cramped one, nice English breakfast but would have liked more bacon, welcoming host who explains everything about the area, a few dusty areas but not at eye level, very family friendly but quite small, tea and coffee in rooms with little to no milk, bu lt overall a good guest house only about a 10 minute walk into town, would recommend.
SFGH is located on a cul-de-sac along a narrow lane. Cars and houses border both sides of the lane and this location gives SFGH an urban tone. (See photo) The view out our window wasn't beautiful, though we were not there for its beauty. More for the price and convenience. Early on in our arrival, the proprietor of SFGH was keen to show us how to unlock the door, as you might notice, some Trip Advisor reviews made reference to difficulty in using front door key. We were okay with operating the lock. Parking is very limited and you may need to do some tricky parallel parking. The room was a three bedded ensuite on the first floor (2nd floor for USA readers). It was clean, well ventilated, and very comfortable for my two boys and I. The breakfast, included in the price, was well done and served in a dining room around one large table with all other SFGH occupants. If you want a clean, comfortable, hospitable, accommodation this will do. Getting into the city centre is a pleasant walk through an urban area. …
