Appreciated the extras!
We loved staying here and really appreciated the extras like the baby items and beach toys.  We’ve left a ball to add to the collection!  I really think you could say more on the web about the Suite as it really is very family friendly.  A welcome surprise!  Excellent!

Ideal Spot!
Lovely rooms, done to a high standard, but did not like the lay out of the room as would have preferred separate bedrooms and living space.  Lovely bathroom. extremely accommodating owners.  Lovely place.  Ideal spot.
Thomas, Emma, Maisy and Archie Lant  – Thank you for your feedback which we appreciate.  With regard to separate bedrooms/lounge we have created Suites rather than apartments.  We want to give the best value in this great location.  With thanks……….Alex 
Just Perfect!!

Mr & Mrs Johnson, UK
Lovely and clean bright room with good amenities
Great location at the heart of St Aubin, close to an array of bars, restaurants and shops. Lovely and clean bright room with good amenities. Very comfortable. Great for a vacation but with the weather this week, a lovely walk to town for work.

Great place for a family getaway!

I’m always so pleased when our guests enjoy themselves! Here’s a short but lovely review: We had a wonderful long weekend here. Alex is lovely and did everything she could to make our stay perfect. The apartment was spotless and well appointed. The views (we stayed in the top room) are stunning.

Great stay, wonderful accommodation and service

Another lovely review on Trip Advisor! “We have stayed in many different hotels and self catering accommodation during visits to Jersey over the last twenty years. Porthole Suites was by far the best of all.

The accommodation is spotlessly clean, spacious and finished to a high speciation.

The location is great for getting anywhere on the island and within short walking distance of the excellent range of bars and restaurants that St. Aubin has to offer. Alex is an excellent host being attentive without becoming intrusive.”

First class accommodation for the holiday maker and for the corporate visitor alike
It seems that this is the first review of this new self catering venture , but I am sure that it will soon be joined by others giving high ratings. The “Porthole Suites” offers first class accommodation for the holiday maker and for the corporate visitor alike, being just two minutes walk from St Aubin village which offers the best (in our opinion) selection of restaurants to be found any where on the island. That is if you prefer to eat out rather than use the combination microwave oven or other light cooking facilities available in your large and well furnished suite. We stayed in suite number 7, which has superb views across St Aubin’s Bay to St Helier and Elizabeth Castle. I travelled extensively when I was still working, and have stayed in some hotels which do not offer the same standard of facilities, fittings and decor as the Porthole Suites. (The shower is a big walk in unit with sliding doors. At 6 feet 5 inches tall, it is important to be able to stand upright and feel the water pressure.) Attention to detail is remarkable, even down to the provision of an ironing board which hangs in the cavernous wardrobes. A truly enjoyable 7 days in June. Wonderful location, first class facilities and Alex, a helpful and attentive host. We have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation, and we shall be returning soon.

Perfect Location!
We stayed at the Porthole in early June 2013 as a perfect location for our walking holiday

Wonderful Location
The Porthole is in a wonderful location in a quiet road with access to lovely bars and restaurants just a minute’s walk away

A real gem!
Like the idea of self catering,so my daughter booked me a suite here.I wasn’t sure what to expect,but these suites are a real gem.The Porthole suites are situated a little back from the harbour ,up the hill and are close to all the local amenities.They have been completed and furnished to a very high standard,interiors are modern and very comfortable.They offer a good selection of appliances should you want to cater for yourself,and plenty of helpful information about the local area should you wish to explore ,which I recommend you do! There are plenty of great cafés and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk from the property,I especially enjoyed dinner at ‘Mash’,and coffee at the harbour gallery and craft centre,which is well worth a look for more unusual gifts.Alex and her staff made me feel very welcome.Thankyou. Room Tip: I can recommend a room with a garden view.

This was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed
We have just spent 5 days at the Porthole Suites and were very impressed. We booked before they were completed so had no idea what they would be like. We were assured by Alex Wright( the owner) that we would not be disappointed and we were not. The suites have been furnished to a very high standard with attention to detail. We had a garden suite overlooking the most beautiful gardens which were there for our use. The gardens give stunning views over the harbour below. They are ideally situated to access bus routes, if you have no car, and the choice of restaurants, all within easy walking distance, is second to none.. We could not have made a better choice of accommodation and would definitely return. The suite gave us the flexibility to please ourselves and eat in or out. The cooking facilities are limited but more than adequate with a small 2 ring electric hot plate and a good microwave. The beds were fantastic, the seating was well thought out and comfortable and the bathroom was large with an excellent shower, we even had a change of towels mid week. There is limited parking if you happen to have a car, but it is restricted to about 6 or 7 places, depending on the size of the cars. It is not allocated parking so be aware that you may have to park down near the harbour, this is free on Sundays and free overnight from 5pm to 8am. They use parking cards in Jersey or parking discs. The book of cards can be purchased on the ferry (10 cards per book). In St Aubins 1 card will cover you for 2 hours parking but in St Helier it is mostly only 1 hour. Many of the small bays around Jersey do have free parking , if you can find a space. St Katherines bay has an excellent fish restaurant down on the harbour, very popular with locals and very cheap compared to restaurants in the town. All in all this was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed and Alex is such a lovely person who does her utmost to make you feel comfortable and at home. Thank you Alex . Room Tip: The suites on the upper floors that have a harbour view really do have an excellent harbour view.
