With the new season drawing ever closer many of our thoughts will already be on Valentines Day and what has become the annual pilgrimage to Jersey.  Although it is still 7 months until the game why not use this romantic occasion to take the better half away for a long weekend and plan your trip now.  Following the successful trips in the last two seasons, Seymour Hotels are offering the following  promotions for those making the trip. 



The 4 star Pomme d'Or Hotel in the heart of St Helier is offering a very special rate from only £34.50 per person per night sharing a twin or double room with full English Breakfast included.  The hotel is centrally located close to St Heliers Bars, Clubs & Restaurants, and is near the Bus Station & Taxi Rank for easy access to the Rugby Ground at St Peter.  There is also free use of the Merton Hotel's extensive leisure facilities and those who are less energetic may wish to use all night residents bar.
