The Atlantic Named National Geographic’s ‘Home from Home’ Hotel

Publish date: 21 Jun 2017

The Atlantic Hotel has been named ‘Home from Home’ hotel of the year in the National Geographic Traveller’s inaugural Big Sleep Awards 2017.

The Atlantic, which is one of just four hotels in the British Isles to feature in these prestigious awards, is described as having ‘breathtaking views and being the perfect choice for a relaxing break’.

‘It’s a massive honour for a Jersey hotel to be recognised by one of the country’s leading travel publications. It’s especially gratifying when our levels of personal service are highlighted, as this is something that we have always prided ourselves on at The Atlantic, but I did have to pinch myself when I read that the runner-up was Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons,’

said owner and Managing Director, Patrick Burke.

Winner are selected with the help of readers and a panel of judges, including freelance travel writer Julia Buckley, Tom Chesshyre, travel writer for The Times, Pippa Jacks, group editor of Travel Trade Gazette, James and Tamara Lohan, founders of Mr & Mrs Smith, along with other high profile travel experts. The awards recognise hotels in 20 categories and focus on a range of aspects including service, food, design and value for money.

Readers described The Atlantic Hotel as having a superb cliff-top location overlooking a five-mile sandy beach. The personal levels of service also caught the attention of visitors.

‘Waking up to the sound of waves and far-stretching views over the island was magical,’ said one.

‘The level of service was outstanding, from remembering how I took my coffee to offering the best places to visit in the island. It was a wonderful experience,’ said another.

The hotel has also been named one of the 50 Greatest Hotels in Britain for Summer for the second year in a row. Writing in Telegraph Travel, hotel expert Fiona Duncan describes The Atlantic Hotel as being ‘stylish and elegant’ with ‘delicious food that celebrates local produce’.

Mr Burke added:

“We featured in the same list in The Telegraph last summer, so to be named for a second year running is fantastic. Jersey is a wonderful destination for visitors and has some of the best views, activities and food to be found anywhere in the British Isles. We are pleased and proud to be able to help spread the word about how the island is becoming a must-visit destination.”

In its review of The Atlantic Hotel and Ocean Restaurant, Telegraph Travel describes feeling ‘on top of the world’, with a sweeping view of St Ouen’s Bay and the other Channel Islands clear on the horizon. It also highlights the hotel’s location and six acres of grounds bordering La Moye Golf Course and the short distance to St Ouen’s Bay, which is popular with surfers and features gastro beach cafes.
