Grand Jersey Hotel & Spa, St Helier, Jersey
Sitting in a prime position just set back from the Esplanade and overlooking Elizabeth Castle, the Grand has been welcoming dapper guests since 1891. There's nothing fusty about the interiors however - they've had a complete overhaul in recent years and are slick and contemporary. Period flourishes can still be seen in the ornate plasterwork and grand central staircase. Rooms are executive in feel and have either sea or park views. The terrace is alive with the post-work crowd in the summer and the fine-dining restaurant Tassili serves theatrical haute cuisine, which has earned the restaurant four AA Rosettes. Facilities include a private cinema, an Elemis spa and a health club.
Victoria park is just across the road from the hotel and is a floral spot to sit with a book in summer.
The hotel is a short walk from St Helier's shops, bars and restaurants, overlooking the bay.
By plane: flights from London Heathrow to Jersey take around one hour. The hotel is a 10-minute taxi ride from the airport.
By boat: ferries to St Helier run from Poole (4 hours) and Portsmouth (10 hours 20 minutes). condorferries.co.uk
