The Cream of Jersey
"This is an interesting hotel at which to stay. Other reviewers keep on that it is out of date and needs refurbishment. We disagree because it offers a really 'classic' hotel experience. If you are trying to be the Beckhams ... don't go! Go to Ritz instead! If you want to experience the warmth and gentility of what we regard as a real hotel with a lovely cosy amostphere where you can relax and feel at home after a long day out, this is your choice. The food is actually very good. The meat is not inedible in fact it is gorgeous! The vegetables are fine. The selection of food are of a good variety and offered a full ranges of choices to everyone . The breakfasts were absolutely excellent because an English breakfast in a hotel is normally incredibly thick with grease; this was not the case - it was cooked and presented very well. There were many more healthy breakfast options too! The hotel does offer evening entertainment and this is very suited to the older guest. After all if you want to be shaking your booty you would not want to stay in a hotel at all in the evening! We went out and saw the Jersey nightlife which hangs out at The Weighbridge - restaurants, clubs, bars- and at the La The plus Havre de Pas and Gorey. They are also the best beaches! This hotel is a lovely base at a very reasonable price to offer you the chance to explore Jersey because it is on a beach, right near the Bus Station and Town Centre and buses are dead cheap, come on time and cost.... wait for it...Â£1! Dead good value for money, unless you plan to hang out in your hotel for two weeks rather than seeing where you went!"

Fantastic hotel, excellent value for money
"I can't believe the review here that says the food was so bad. Absolutely not true! I'm quite a picky eater and I found the food here excellent. I was in a party of 6 and we all agreed that the food was superb. Lots of chioces on the menu and the staff couldn't do enough for you. The rooms are clean and spacious, the bar, reception and dining area are comfortable with plenty of seating. My only complaint is that this hotel is clearly under graded, it is not a 2 star but more like a very high 3 star hotel. The Stafford was excellent value for money with a good central location. You couldn't ask for anymore!"

"The Stafford is a nice hotel in a run down part of St Helier. It has obviously been recently refurbished and has a comfortable feel about it ..BUT the food is really awful. The vegetables are soggy and overcooked, the fish was covered in a bright coloured, rather nasty sauce and the meat was tough and tasteless. Sorry Stafford, but have a look in your waste bins, because that's where a lot of your food is going."

Sadly outdated and tired.
"What a disappointment! Jersey is beautiful, but not this hotel. Totally outdated and badly in need of modernisation.Staff were friedly, but adjacent street very noisy.Will return to the island but stay elsewhere!"

"A GREAT TWO WEEK HOLIDAY The Stafford Hotel to me is under graded by Jersey tourism, the service and food is great, the rooms are comfortable and clean, My wive and I meet other guests who would not come to Jersey is they could not stay at the stafford, in fact the 8 guests between them have been to the over 200 times in 25 years. This is a great statement for the hotel."

a jersey diamond
"We have been to St Helier on several occasions- we found the Stafford after staying at several hotels near Havre des Pas - we now wanted a base which was within easy walking distance of the town centre and the pronenade of St Aubins Bay. Jersey may be famous for its pearls but this place is a little diamond - good food,excellent staff, clean and tidy and the right place to give us a few minutes walk to the shops/beach/everything. We would certainly stay there again."

Needs a refurb
"Just had a long weekend in the Stafford. The Hotel is clean and well kept however our room was very dated.Only views from window was top of kitchen and back of hospital 10/15 feet away. The bathroom was again kept very clean however required total refurbishment.The shower was temperamental. The suite was 60's avocado with a white top to the toilet which didn't fit properly. The dining room was well kept. However 60's decor. Seating arranged in long lines of tables with 1" between tables. Felt uncomfortably close to your neighbour."

Secret Jewel In St Helier
"I can't really remember the amount of times that I have had the pleasure of staying in this small family owned hotel. From the age of 5, myself and my parents had stayed at this lovely hotel. About a minutes walk from the town centre of St. Helier, this hotel offers a warm and friendly welcome to all who stay here. The food isn't A La Carte but well cooked fayre that never fails to disappoint. Comfortable rooms and friendly staff make this one to stay in and I would recommend it to anyone !!"
