Popular with holidaying families, this modern 3-star, Methodist-founded, Christian-run hotel overlooking St Brelades Bay offers a host of activities and entertainment for the young ones, which is especially welcome during the busy summer months.
The property overlooks a 13th-century parish church and a picture-postcard Fisherman's chapel. There is also a Sir Winston Churchill Memorial Gardens nearby. Jersey has over 22 miles of coastal walks (ask at the hotel about their guided walks and local activities), as well as nearby castles, towers and gardens to visit. La Moye Golf Club is 3.5kn away, while the high-street shops of St Helier are a 21-minute drive from the hotel.
The Biarritz Hotel features an on-site restaurant serving a mix of modern and classic dishes with vegetarian options, and two cafés for informal dining, including the Beach Café Biarritz. Many guests opt for the half-board stay, which includes a hot English breakfast and a café lunch. It has a Saturday and Wednesday carvery, a Sunday lunch and a Grand Buffet dinner on Sunday nights followed by an informal Songs of Praise-style worship session. There's also an option for al fresco dining on the terrace, which includes stunning views of the bay. The hotel's landscaped gardens include private access to the tree-lined promenade and beach below. Other communal areas include a lounge with a piano.
The 46 warm, ensuite rooms and suites feature wicker chairs and soft furnishings in muted colours, plus satellite TVs, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Most have sea views, and some family rooms and suites add balconies. There is also the option of a 2-bedroom apartment, which has its own private deck with sea views, and a fully equipped kitchen with a washing machine.
