A 5-star top Jersey hotel in Saint Helier in a restored manor house

A mile or so out of town, in leafy Saint Saviour, stands this AA Five Red Star hotel, a rural retreat set in 18 acres of land. As you approach the restored manor house, you’ll wind around a circular courtyard with a central grassy lawn. The trickling fountain in front of Longueville Manor’s arched entrance draws you in and adds to the feeling of complete serenity.

The woods are certainly calling here, so take a restorative walk through the hotel grounds, taking a moment to admire the ornamental lake and the fully restored Victorian kitchen garden. Or, opt for a couple of hours’ pampering in the Cottage Garden spa, which includes a secluded garden, outdoor pool and hot tub, along with a treatment programme including de Mamiel facials and Manomara massages. At pre-dinner drinks, awaken the wine connoisseur within by ordering a glass of something from the hotel’s 4,000-strong wine cellar, which is also a museum you can tour.

An historical top Jersey hotel in Saint Helier with sea views

This 5-star haven has held its prominent position on the Esplanade since 1890. With an impressive pillared entrance hall that features a sweeping dark-wood staircase, Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa retains much of its original glory while providing all the benefits of a modern luxury hotel.

Gaze out of the window in an elegant bedroom, decorated in greens, pinks, blues or red for a boutique feel. If the view over to the 16th-century Elizabeth Castle piques your interest, head over the road and take the Castle Ferry across to visit this Tudor-age relic standing tall on its tidal islet. Ferries are every 30 minutes but at low tide, you can also walk the rocky half mile or so across the causeway to explore the island and exhibitions detailing its past.

The hotel’s Grand Jersey spa combines an indoor heated pool, sauna and steam room. In the sauna, choose your preferred heat intensity from three levels of wooden benches, then, in the treatment rooms, lie back as you’re massaged, rubbed and pampered with Elemis products. Once refreshed and rejuvenated, relax on a velvety sofa in the Champagne Lounge with its vibrantly hued cushions, floral carpet and upholstery and admire the high-panelled ceiling and gleaming chandelier. While away an hour or two with a glass of fizz or light snack.

A French-style top Jersey hotel in Saint Helier with an Indian twist

It may well be the upmarket Indian restaurant that draws you to the cosmopolitan Hotel de France on Saint Helier’s tranquil periphery. Dishes such as truffle-infused tandoori poussin served with cumin-tossed jersey royals and chat massala make up the tantalising menu at Saffrons. Or maybe it’s the captivating French chateau-style facade that’ll lure you in, with its symmetrical staircase bordered with intricate blue fencing – a hint of the tasteful tranquillity that awaits inside.

The Ayush Wellness Spa is a peace-filled sanctuary constructed in stone and wood to mirror the varied textures of nature. Glass walkways create a sense of space.

To improve circulation and wellbeing, work up a sweat in the sauna or steam room then bring your temperature right down in the cold plunge pool. On offer is an extensive portfolio of Ayurvedic therapies and spa treatments. Try the navarkizi, a four-hand full body massage where two therapists apply pressure using warm muslin parcels filled with rice, milk and herbs.

Rooms are individually styled to reflect the hotel’s original French country-house character, with warm wood touches, lamps that cast a soft glow, and richly textured fabrics. Alternatively, choose a Spa room which continues the facility’s nature theme with decor in restful stone and wood.

A top Jersey hotel in Saint Helier right on the central square
