Amazing experience the lady on the desk ( owners sister) is the best host. Lovely history to the hotel I wish the family run business all the success for the future. The rooms are clean and tidy, breakfast and evening meals to perfection. Overall a really great place to stay I will defiantly be making a return journey to support this business.
Big room, friendly and helpful staff. Plenty of tea and coffee in room. Standard breakfast. Limited vegetarian or vegan options. Small niggles.... weighing scales that don't work, old lumpy quilt but changed when asked
So, I stayed here with my wife for 5 days. Overall I would recommend this hotel as the positives easily outweigh the negatives. Let's get one thing clear - despite the name of this hotel, it is NOT on the beach. It is about a 2 minute drive from the beach car park in Grouville. Dealing with the downsides first, we were on the top (second) floor in a 'superior' room. We must have been next to the water tank because this was a constant noise in the evening and the morning. Also, the door of the room next to us was constantly slamming shut every time the family opened or closed it. On the plus side, our room was comfortable and fit for purpose - we had tea/coffee making facilities, we were able to connect to the Wi-Fi easily, we had an ensuite shower and toilet, TV and plenty of drawer/wardrobe space. Our room also overlooked the pool. The staff were friendly and attentive. We ate breakfast each day at the hotel and there was a great selection, including cooked options, cereals, fruit and also options from the menu cooked to order including porridge. There was a bar which we used a couple of times in the evening after a day out and about. The pool was a good place to socialise and was cleaned every day. The location was perfect for us with a hire car - close to Gorey Castle in the east of the island but to be fair everywhere was easily accessible. If I asked myself would I recommend this hotel to friends? My answer is yes. Would I consider staying at this hotel again? My answer is yes.
Had a great holiday at Beachcombers, our highlight was the amazing food...we were half board, which consisted of a 3 course meal off the menu, all the food was really tasty and well presented. The staff were lovely, very friendly. The hotel was clean, but a little tired, maybe some evening entertainment occasionally would be good, as a bit of a hassle to get to St. Helier in the evening. On arrival at airport, there is a bus which takes you into Liberty station, where you need to catch a number 2 bus, which drops off just down the road from hotel. Visits..Jersey lavender, Durrell's zoo, Elizabeth Castle, all brilliant!
We recently stayed at Beachcombers Hotel for two nights. The receptionist who checked us in was very friendly and helpful, as was the rest of the staff we met even if briefly! Entrance of the hotel and lobby are very well kept, as is the swimming pool area. The room was cozy, nice and clean with a comfortable bed and had a lovely view over the car park and pool (room 44). Breakfast service was well organised and the food was very good. Regarding the location, it is a bit isolated in a good way - perfect if you need some peace and quiet. Overall great stay!
This small hotel is nicely located for people wishing to see as much of Jersey as possible by car. Most of the staff were welcoming and friendly and the pool is nicely heated. The hotel provides pool side towels and has tennis rackets and balls available for use on the tennis court. Sadly the family room we were in, smelt stale and the carpet was heavily stained however, the shower room en suite appeared to have been recently installed, it was clean, modern and fresh. The restaurant served very nice meals but they were a little expensive for the portion size and the menu was very limited. The breakfast was a buffet style with everything you would expect for a traditional English breakfast. Continental breakfast foods were also available but often only in small quantities. Tinned grapefruit, peaches and pears were available but no fresh fruit. We used the hotel as a base and spent our time exploring the beauty of Jersey however, if you plan to spend most of your time at the hotel then I would recommend that you didn't choose Beachcombers especially as the Wi-Fi is very poor and is only accessible from the and reception area.
I spent three nights in this pleasant hotel whilst visiting family on the island. My room was clean and tidy and the bed comfortable. The dinner menu was a bit "retro" (prawn cocktail; duck and orange pate), but with excellent quality ingredients and very nicely cooked - we enjoyed our meal. The pool area was very nice, particularly as the weather was glorious. Bar and front of house staff were also excellent. The games room was a bit of a mess - this could surely be made more welcoming and tidier. My only slight gripe is that the manageress, whilst clearly running a tight ship, made us feel as if she included her guests in that regime. Coming back from an evening out at about 10 pm and being told the bar was shut and that she had "just got rid of the last two customers", whilst holding a large glass of red wine in her hand, did not go down well with us.
Stayed here for 6days. We asked for a large bed and got one in the smallest room ever. We asked if we could change rooms as my husband has mobility problems and was told that they would see what they could do and would let us know. They never came back to us so we were stuck in a very small room that overlooked a roof. Dinner on the first night had a terrible choice. Fish and chips,burger,chicken skewers or omelette. Nothing like the sample menu that is on their website. The burger was the worst one ever tasted. We thought at least the breakfast was buffet so couldn't go wrong....how wrong we were. ..had to wait for sausages bacon and eggs to be filled up When they arrived they were Luke warm and then put onto a cold plate so by the time you sat down it was inedible !! It was the same every morning. The hottest thing at breakfast was the tea. The staff are rude apart from one waitress.....the reception staff don't even say hello !!! We will never use this hotel again
I stayed recently at Beachcombers Hotel with my husband. It is a lovely family-run hotel in a wonderful setting, not far from the beach in the beautiful village of Grouville. The hotel is very clean and has an attractive reception area. The rooms are very good. The one we had (room 31) is both a good size with good facilties - comfy bed, nice bed linen and towels. The staff are very friendly and welcoming -especially Heather who runs the hotel. Heather makes you feel very at home. As noted above, the hotel is in a great location - near the beach and Gorey, and on a good bus route into St Helier - there is a bus stop just opposite the hotel. The bus is a great way to get round Jersey if you don't hire a car. The restaurant is good, offering a variety of well cooked meals. Overall excellent and good value for money.
stayed 5 nights. lovely evening meal. service in restaurants meals & breakfast lovely staff & management have an excellent well oiled team only downside Rooms a little noisy. thin walls . would go again great location
