REVIEW: La Haule Manor Hotel, Jersey

I recently took a few days holiday in Jersey, and I chose to stay at La Haule Manor in St Aubins. This attractive hotel - or rather, very upmarket B&B - has recently been extended, and I stayed in the new wing (which has been perfectly blended into the main building). My sea view room was beautiful. Spacious and well appointed with pretty and comfortable furniture, and with one of the best hotel bathrooms I've ever used with a free standing bath and a separate fabulous 'rainhead' shower. There was also a bathrobe and slippers provided - always a nice touch.

Breakfast is served in the newly refurbished breakfast room (with some nice photographic canvases of Jersey on the walls) and is very good quality with lots of choice from simple cereals to full English. The Jersey yoghurts with fresh fruit were especially delicious, as were the omelettes! Hot breakfasts are cooked to order and the various options are all very tasty and well presented.

La Haule is well situated on the edge of the village, within easy walking distance of shops and a variety of restaurants as well as the Harbour Gallery which is well worth dropping in to.

There is a bus stop very close to the hotel, and the buses from and to St Helier run frequently and are inexpensive. Buses on other routes can be much less frequent so if relying on buses, as I did on this trip, you will need to have a copy of the bus timetable.

The staff are very friendly and helpful and the one minor hiccup of my stay was resolved within 10 minutes of my bringing it to their attention. Their kindness to another guest who had had a minor accident during his stay was evident and clearly genuine.

It is easy to see how La Haule earns it's five star status. It was a pleasure to stay there, and I plan to return. For more information see the hotel's website: http://www.lahaulemanor.com/
