The audacious and resourceful Travelling Gourmet TM flies to the Channel Islands and stays in the…

MOST safe and secure hotel in St. Helier…Why? The Savoy Hotel is the safest hotel in St. Helier because just opposite is the Jersey Police Headquarters! One afternoon I even saw a squad of heavily armed black clad SWAT officers with Heckler and Koch MP9 Sub-Machine guns running to their van…

I liked my very nice and comfy junior suite and enjoyed lovely breakfasts during my stay with a view of the freeform pool. The hotel has the fine dining Montana restaurant. Helmed by a dynamic and youthful Chef, it serves delicious meals with nice wines to match. The Asparagus Soup in a yoghurt drink bottle is outstanding with a crusty Black Pudding Bon Bon skewered by a colourful straw! I also liked the garden-fresh Petit Pois or garden peas. Pickled Raisins with Scallops done just right so it was still rare in the middle came next…

I thoroughly enjoyed my Degustation Dinner in the elegant Montana with exemplary service.

St. Helier

It takes a good 15 minutes to walk to the town center…a little far but very good exercise and you get to see some magnificent multi-coloured tulips in full bloom! Nice pedestrian only shopping streets in this capital of the Channel islands.

Bergerac was a hit TV series about a Police detective on the island of Jersey…it is one of my favourite shows.
