Our Surroundings

The Prince of Wales is a family-run 4* inn overlooking the beach at Greve de Lecq on Jersey’s north coast, it has a very good reputation with locals and visitors for hospitality, fresh seafood from the bay, beautiful surroundings, informal simplicity and down to earth prices.

The Beach

There are several cafes nearby and pubs within easy walking distance. Bathing is safe – except when there is a big swell – and young children appreciate the stream which flows over the sands at the eastern end of the bay. The beach has lifeguards on duty for most of the season. The old pier opposite is a good vantage point for fishermen. If you make friends with one, ask him to show you the cave that leads to the “secret beach.”

Jersey's North Coast

Jersey’s North Coast is quite different from the south, most of it is formed of cliffs interspersed with small bays, Greve de Lecq being one of them. Most of it is a protected conservation area with well maintained paths along the cliff tops, offering views of the other islands and the Normandy coast. These paths lead into small bays and picturesque small harbours, the main ones being Bouley Bay, Bonne Nuit and Rozel.


Although the bays are accessible by car, they are small and lie at the bottom of steep descents, parking is normally difficult. Best access is by bus or on foot, with a packed lunch provided by the inn. The north coast paths are popular with walkers and photographers. Guided cliff walks are available.

Jersey's main tourist attractions

They are all within reach with a good bus service from outside the inn. For an overview of Jersey’s attractions, please visit the official Jersey Tourism website.

Beautiful hotel in glorious location

The sea view rooms are huge and have wonderful vistas. The owners are extremely helpful and the food is delicious. Great place for a short break, holiday or business visit. The rooms are very comfortable well equipped and spacious. The beach is a stone throw away.

The Prince of Wales Hotel, Jersey

Me and my partner have just had a lovely weekend in Jersey. Stayed at the Prince of Wales Hotel, would recommend this hotel to all my family and friends. The hotel room was big clean and tidy, breakfast was amazing value for money, and I would also like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to Lucas and all the staff.

Excellent Hotel

This is a really lovely hotel in a lovely place. Rooms on the balcony are very good and look across the sea with beautiful views. The staff are excellent nothing is too much trouble. This was our first visit but we were with two other couples who had visited before we went on their recommendation and were definitely not disappointed. Because we were out of the summer season the manager opened the hotel on the Sunday night for our meal! Would definitely recommend this hotel and we intend to return perhaps earlier in the year and appreciate the amazing views if you sit on the balcony.

Superb hotel and ideal as best pet friendly hotel we’ve ever used

My wife, me and border collie just stayed here for 1 week which we’ve all thoroughly enjoyed. Sometimes pet friendly hotels can be a bit grubby but we were extremely pleased to find a lovely big room with twin balcony and very large queen size bed. We could come and go through a separate fire door just outside our room so could come and go with the dog without going downstairs and through reception. Included in the price is full English breakfast which is superb but there are plenty of other choices if preferred. We also had 3 evening meals which we can also highly recommend, all the staff are really friendly and work very hard. I cannot praise this hotel highly enough and would certainly return again.

Little gem of a hotel and restaurant

Just returned from another enjoyable stay at the Prince of Wales, Nigel and his team always work so hard to ensure that we have a great stay. They are all so welcoming to our family. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. Breakfasts are very filling and delicious and the evening meals are lovely too. The beach at Greve de Lecq is also picturesque. Wish we could have stayed longer and look forward to going back soon. Thank you.
