Good Hotel Guide Review

It’s a golden anniversary year for Patrick Burke’s sleek ocean liner of a hotel in mature landscaped gardens overlooking St Ouen’s Bay. It was opened in 1970 by Patrick’s father, Henry, whose first Jersey venture, the Penguin, was – bingo! – scooped up by Billy Butlins. So Patrick has hotel-keeping in his blood and, year on year here, ‘all is great’. Bedrooms, with marble bathroom, are contemporary in style and ‘spotless’. They aren’t all huge, but ocean-view rooms with glass doors and balcony have a great sense of space. Rooms facing La Moye Golf Course are also ‘beautifully appointed’, and though lacking the vista, should suit golf nuts to a tee. In the ‘quite wonderful’ Ocean restaurant Michelin-starred chef Will Holland cooks a daily-changing market menu. Or dine à la carte on such ‘lovely, sometimes innovative’ dishes as grilled John Dory fillet, confit fennel, clams, potato purée, caper and olive oil dressing. There are vegetarian options, a children’s menu, refined dining in The Tasting Room, lighter lounge fare. Staff are ‘always about but not intrusive’. A health club, flower-decked terrace and pool round things off. ‘It deserves to be in the Guide. We will return.’
