THE INN, St Helier, Jersey
A compact boutique hotel on the outskirts of St Helier with a dynamic bar and a well-respected restaurant that serves Madeiran hanging skewers called espetada. Rooms vary in character and colour from monochrome black and white to racy red velvet. Facilities are limited but there is a small car park across the road and a bus runs regularly into town (a brisk 10-minute walk away) or into the country parishes of St John and Trinity where you can pick up the north coast cliff paths. Unusually for a three-star hotel you'll find robes in all the rooms save for the lowest category, along with a snack tray of goodies, air conditioning and bluetooth speakers.
Your expert reviewer
If you catch the bus from the hotel in the direction out of town, you can go as far as the cliff paths on the north coast.
The hotel is on the outskirts of Jersey's capital, a short bus ride (or a brisk 10-minute walk) from the town's shops and restaurants.
By plane: flights from London Heathrow to Jersey take around one hour. The hotel is a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport. skyscanner.net
By boat: ferries to St Helier run from Poole (4 hours) and Portsmouth (10 hours 20 minutes). condorferries.co.uk
Style & Character
This hotel suits city-breaking couples. We love the multi-coloured concentric-ring fabric used to upholster the sofas and for the curtains.
