Good Hotel Guide Review
Overlooking St Ouen’s Bay on Jersey’s west coast, The Atlantic has a hint of ocean-cruising glamour with its retro, streamlined looks, fine dining and emphasis on relaxation. Big windows, balconies, pale or nautical colours, and light oak furniture give bedrooms a breezy feel, relaxing rather than flashy. Grander rooms have more stately furnishings. All have marble bathrooms, robes, fruit and water, sea or golf-course views, and ‘generous extras’ – readers appreciated the half bottle of complimentary champagne. As much as the views – the sunsets are spectacular – it’s the good food that’s the draw, with sophisticated dishes making full use of Jersey’s produce: perhaps pickled Jersey crab and mango salsa followed by glazed duck breast with stem ginger and blackcurrant, or sea bass with Jersey Royals. Tasting menus and market menus add to the choice. Breakfast brings freshly squeezed juice and made-to-order dishes, including choices such as chorizo and eggs, and avocado, tomato and chilli. With gardens, a palm-fringed outdoor pool, tennis court, indoor pool and small spa, the hotel provides a ‘wonderfully’ relaxing stay. (K and VS)
