Beautiful location and views - walking around in evening we were all astounded in terms of thinking of history ie what we were stood on -as well as the panoramic views . Weather was excellent and all JT staff met throughout our stay could not have been more helpful and considerate (and it was good to meet with Charles II on the castle tour!) Would recommend to anyone as a treat and as a completely different form of break when compared to a normal apartment / hotel stay Only minor comment would be that a second upstairs toilet / sink would have been very convenient - but we un...more
The location of the Cider Barn is excellent for a group with children who can make use of the facilities (keys for access out of normal hours are provided), but even without children there would be great novelty value. The accommodation was very comfortable and the JH staff all went out of their way to be helpful. A call to the office to report a small issue on the first day resulted in someone driving out with the required equipment within a few hours. The on-site staff were very accommodating to our grandchildren and showed a genuine, caring interest in making their stay enjoyable - which it...more
Great place to stay for a peaceful break whilst still having easy access to St helier. Had everything we needed and fantastic views over the bay. Only fault was the outdoor furniture was a little lacking.
Absolutely fantastic location and well equipped. However past guest had left the fort in such a state the clean team Hadn’t managed to empty bins, broken furniture and lounge kitchen are absolutely stank of fire and general dirt had to leave all doors and windows open to try and air it. Also no hoover or broom on site (has been in past)
The tower was equipped with everything we needed, it is beautiful decorated with stylish with a comfortable corner couch and enough areas and seating for all guests, kitchen facilities are fantastic and the roof terrace is perfect for the sunshine. Customer service is fabulous and someone was always available to help. Beds are comfortable and linen clean and fresh. Shower and bathroom facilities were also fantastic. Great stay!
We have had a great 3 day staycation in the lovely and unique Archirondel tower, enjoyed the summer solstice with swims Everything was perfect and as long as you're happy to negotiate steep, narrow spiral steps needed to access the 4 floors, we had an amazing 'break from normality' out East (we live at St Ouen!) The bed could have been bigger and a bit more comfortable, but otherwise we were very happy with all provided
We have enjoyed our second visit to La Crete Fort which was amazing again. In my view, the wooden table and four chairs on the kitchen terrace could do with a varnish or treated with preservative to keep it in good condition. At some point in the near future, the railings on the kitchen balcony will need replacing along with the metal gates and grills up on the grassed area on top to keep the fort safe and secure. The ironwork is very rotten and coming away from its housing on the ground / walls.. The location and views are amazing and it is a very comfortable venue to stay at. We wil...more
Our weeks day had mostly high temperatures with some windy days as well as a little bit of rain. We did see a couple of full rainbows that highlighted the Lighthouse. It also meant that we saw the full range of tides over the time we were there. The views are spectacular and we enjoyed watching the swifts and the gulls circling the top of the tower. There are certainly a lot of oystercatchers as well as rock pits around. It was useful to have the roof vents and the fan in this weather. The bedrooms for functional and serve their purpose. It was nice to have shower and toilet facilities on the ...more
We chose this let as it offered the best value for money for three adults. Two sharing the bunk beds and one double room. The rooms are small but perfectly ok. You are only in there to sleep after all. The bunks are fine for small adults but anyone tall would struggle. I wouldn't recommend this let for anyone very tall as there are low beams in the bathroom and lounge but aside from that the ceilings are high as it in the loft of a stable block. The apartment is well fitted out with a kitchen comprising all the usual necessities. Beds are very comfortable and the apartment was the right temper...more
Our visit to Seymour Tower was the realisation of a long held wish to experience the scenery, isolation and adventure it provides. It did not disappoint! Our JH guide was excellent - friendly, professional, knowledgeable and there to encourage all to enjoy the experience safely. With a spring tide, full moon and cloudless skies, the tower and its surrounding seascape are very special, with everything continually changing all around you, there was much to see and relish, day and night, low tide and high. The facilities are fairly basic, but comfortable, so appropriate preparation is important b...more
L'Etacquerel Fort was the perfect location for our Wellness Wednesday session - tidy and peaceful, the basic set up fulfilled all our needs. We used different places around the Fort for the different parts of the session making the most of the site's outdoor and indoor areas. The workshop ended with a beautiful sunset!
Pluses: Barge is incredibly placed along st ouens it’s gorgeous and the perfect place for bbqs and family days. I used it to get ready on my wedding morning and the views were incredible! Great modern bathroom facilities and a tidy little kitchen that does the job. Minuses: Sadly the roof access is closed which we didn’t realise so don’t plan any rooftop activities like we did! The sofa bed isn’t very comfy but the bunk beds are fine, decor a little dated and tired inside. Outdoor bins overflowing on arrival from people having a beach party - ours were ripped apart by seagulls/animals a...more
Great experience in a unique setting to celebrate a special birthday, even the weather didn’t stop us enjoying ourselves!!
