With so many accommodation choices in Jersey, it can be difficult to wade through all of your options and narrow down the best fit for you. Whether you want all out luxury or a more simplistic and budget-friendly option, Jersey has a seemingly endless list of possibilities for you to decide from. One option that is incredibly popular with regular visitors is Jersey self catering. No matter your budget, the island has a self catering option for you with luxury retreats, beachside villas and affordable apartments just a few of the wealth of self catering accommodation options available to you. If you are planning a trip to this stunning island, instead of restricting yourself just to hotel choices, check out some of the exceptional Jersey selfcatering options as well. You will be pleasantly surprised by the myriad of accommodation choices on offer and may find they suit your travel party better.
Reasons to Choose Jersey Self Catering
There is logic behind why so many of Jersey’s regular visitors choose to go down the self catering route when choosing their accommodation. Whilst every individual’s reasoning is different, there is a common theme of why self catering options are such a popular choice.
Freedom and Flexibility
Jersey is a small island with a big personality and with so much on offer, exploring it is truly an adventure. One of the primary reasons why many travellers choose Jersey self catering accommodation is for the freedom it provides. Self catering allows you to go at your own pace and not be restricted by things like hotel meal times and facility opening times. This is great for early birds and night owls who like to start their day before others or stay out until late as your schedule and itinerary has ultimate flexibility when you choose self catering accommodation. There is no meal that is part of your package to rush back for, you are not restricted by the opening times of hotel facilities and there’s no maid to disturb you. You can come and go as you please at any hour of the day adding freedom and flexibility to your trip.
Jersey self catering accommodation allows more privacy than any hotel as it offers a home away from home vibe. There is no need for a ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign on your door as there is no one to disrupt you and no requirement to mix with other guests for dining, entertainment or leisure as you have exclusive access to your accommodation choice. You can also choose a self catering option located in the middle of nowhere providing the ultimate relaxing environment with no neighbours, no passers by and only nature on your doorstep.
Whilst many travellers adore the novelty of staying in a hotel, others love nothing more than home comforts. Jersey self catering accommodation provides a real homely environment with a more comforting and personal atmosphere than any hotel or resort. Self catering accommodation options also generally have more amenities featuring the likes of a garden, private parking and extensive entertainment options. Self catering is often a more family-friendly option too as parents can worry less about noise or children running around. To top it off, self catering accommodation often has a lot more space than a hotel room, perfect for families who need more room so if your little one wants to bring their entire toy box with them, they can.
Meal packages such as all inclusive or bed and breakfast are great for many travellers making trips easier by taking one less decision off your shoulders. However, hotel catering is not for everyone. If you love cooking and prefer to create your own meals, self catering accommodation comes with fully equipped kitchens to prep and cook your own dishes. This is also a great option for anyone with specific dietary requirements who may find it tricky relying on hotel dining or limited restaurant menus.
Depending on the size of your travel party, you may be more comfortable in self catering accommodation. With a variety of options in all shapes and sizes, there will be a suitable choice on offer for you no matter how many people you are travelling with. If you are travelling as a large group, you can find that hotels will split you up and you may not necessarily be on the same floor or even part of the hotel as the rest of your group. Choosing a self catering accommodation option allows your whole party to stay together and experience the entire trip together as a group.
