We really enjoyed staying here for a week. Loved the hosts and their local area knowledge. It was our anniversary and we had the best time. Thank you once again for all the help. There are good Indian restaurants in the area that serve authentic Indian food.

The guest house is conveniently situated for most amenities in St Helier and very close to a bus stop. We found it very clean and comfortable, the only possible problem was that there is no lift but we were given help with our luggage. The beds were comfortable. However it was rather hot at night under a big duvet and... More

Ten minutes walk from the port, and five minutes from the bus station, the location is ideal for a visitor to Jersey without a car! The host is welcoming, the rooms clean and comfortable, clean towels daily and a good breakfast to start the day. The summer bus service on Jersey is regular and reliable, taking visitors to every corner... More

This guest house is perfectly situated (between downtown and the sea front) The rooms are clean and the typical english breakfast is very good. Our hostess was a real sunbeam, her good mood was a pleasure. I'm going to Jersey with my mom since years now, we've tried many guests houses and the Kensington made the difference. It will be...
