Very clean well run establishment. Room basic with dated decor, but comfortable and in good repair, the bathroom was a good size, the over bath shower was only just adequate. No lifts, and being on the 3rd floor meant a lot of stairs, wouldn't be good for anyone with mobility issues. Dining room a little cramped , shared set tables, for the duration of the stay. The service was excellent, Breakfast was good quality with enough choice for most people, full English , choice of syle of egg, cereal , fruit juice , toast. The Evening meal was A small starter,Main of meat, potatoes and two veg, or omlete, or salad, followed by a small sweet, or chease and biscuits. Unadventurouse and a bit bland, but well cooked and edible.
The hotel is beside a busy road and one of the couples we shared our table with found the road noise disturbing. The hotel is a 15 to 20 minute walk from the town, shops etc, which are best found by taking the first right up a slight hill, through a park, and down into the town. A long beach is a 10 minute walk away, great for walking your dinner down . The Talana proved a good economic base for seeing this lovely Island. We did the round Island tour with the Waverly Coach Co, a great intro to the Island, booked through the Hotel Reception. Went to the Durrel Zoo, very relaxed and nice grounds enjoyed it. Went to the German Bunkers great exhibition, insight into life during the occupation. Used the Local bus to see other parts of the island, got an all day ticket.( Bus Stop is written on the road to show where they are, there are very few signs or shelters).Elizabeth Castle was good value for money, we took the 'ferry over and walked back' the Soldiers demonstration of fireing a musket shouldn't be missed! The package was with Premier Holidays who gave an efficient friendly and effective service. Would go back to Jersey in a few years time, but try to get somwhere out of the town next time.
