Review Summary

Photos and Review by

Pros

  • Elegant 18th-century manor house with lavish interiors
  • Set in attractive gardens overlooking a picturesque bay
  • Walking distance from St. Aubin town and Beauport Beach
  • Classically styled though unstuffy rooms -- most with sea views
  • Suites include private balconies and roll-top bathtubs
  • Heated outdoor swimming pool and hot tub open from April through October
  • Excellent cooked-to-order breakfast included in rates
  • Free airport shuttle service
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Some rooms overlook the car park
  • No dining on-site (though free transportation provided to sister hotel restaurant)
  • Not as upscale as what some may expect for a hotel that's billed as luxury

Bottom Line

The 16-room La Haule Manor Hotel is a cozy boutique hotel set in attractive gardens that look out over the picturesque sands of Jersey's St Aubin Bay. Rooms are traditional without feeling stuffy or old-fashioned, and many have lovely views over the sea -- though others overlook the car park. The seasonal outdoor pool and hot tub provide a fine place to unwind during the island's warmer months. A cooked-to-order breakfast is included in the rate and Wi-Fi is free. Overall, rates are surprisingly reasonable for this level of hotel -- though if a lack of on-site dining is an issue, check out the nearby (but pricier) Somerville Hotel.

Scene

Elegant late 18th-century manor house with classically lavish interiors

Approaching La Haule Manor Hotel through its ornamental garden -- complete with a decorative fountain, leonine statues, and pretty potted flowers -- the hotel impresses with its pristine and elegantly simple Georgian facade. Stepping inside this late 18th-century manor house, find classic interiors with Rococo-style furnishings, Louis XIVth claw-foot couches, and gilt-framed etches and mirrors, all illuminated by ceiling chandeliers and sconces. Victorian leather wingback chairs, Persian rugs, and plantation window shutters give a slightly colonial air and adds to the ambience of aristocratic Englishness and classical opulence that pervades throughout -- also helped by a welcome glass of pink fizz on arrival. The atmosphere overall is quiet and peaceful.

Location

Located in the particularly picturesque St. Aubin area of Jersey overlooking the bay

Map of La Haule Manor Hotel

The hotel is located in the exclusive St. Aubin area of Jersey overlooking the beautiful southern bay and St. Aubin's fort in the distance. The area is particularly picturesque, with pretty country lanes flanked by hedgerows and trees. The small town of St. Aubin -- with its marina, small shops, and restaurants -- is just over five minutes away on foot, while the beautiful sandy Beauport Beach is just over 10 in the other direction. Its location means particularly easy access to Jersey Airport (the hotel provides a free shuttle service which takes under 10 minutes) while the La Route du Port Elizabeth ferry connections to France, Guernsey, and mainland Britain is about 15 minutes away by car.

Rooms

Classically styled rooms -- most with sea views

The hotel has just 16 rooms in all (eight standard, six superior rooms, and two suites) all of which are impeccably finished in elegant Old English styling -- think tasseled drapery, Louis XIVth-style furnishings, and floral etchings -- though with a fresh and unstuffy quality. Modern amenities include flat-screen TVs (with Freeview channels) and free Wi-Fi, while traditional bathrooms provide Crabtree & Evelyn toiletries, bathrobes, and slippers. Superior rooms are more spacious with Egyptian cotton bedsheets and bathtubs with separate showers, though each suite also includes a lounge, free-standing roll-top bathtub, and private balcony with sea views. All other rooms have either sea or inland (car park) views.   

Features

Outdoor seasonal pool and hot tub set in attractive garden overlooking the bay, plus free cooked-to-order breakfast

After the taking in the classic style of the rest of the property, the modernized breakfast room and bar can seem a bit drab and out of place. However, the cooked-to-order breakfast is high-quality and included in the rate. The hotel doesn't offer any other dining options, though it does provide free transport to dinner at the sister hotel two minutes away. The outdoor swimming pool is heated from April to October -- as is the spacious hot tub -- and set in well-tended gardens overlooking the beautiful bay. Parking is available on-site free of charge and Wi-Fi is also free throughout.
