Bon Viveur Guest House

3 stars

The 3* Bon Viveur guesthouse offers impeccable hospitality and great value in one of the loveliest locations in Jersey, right on the harbourside in St Aubin’s village. St Aubin's harbour has an excellent selection of restaurants and bars, with easy transport links to St Helier and marks the start of the picturesque railway walk which ends at Corbiere Lighthouse.

One of the biggest perks of staying at Bon Viveur is the Guesthouses's Italian restaurant, which is a firm favourite with visitors and islanders alike. The restaurant serves traditional cuisine in an intimate and cosy atmosphere.

Dining & Bars

The Bon Viveur Restaurant is a prominent feature of St Aubin's village with a wooden deck overlooking the harbour. The restaurant offers a range of delicious Italian food, and the immaculately dressed staff and inviting atmosphere make it a popular choice with guests and locals alike.


The Bon Viveur is nestled amongst other restaurants, pubs, bars and shops along the harbourfront, giving guests plenty of options at their doorstep! It's easy to discover the island from St Aubin, with a brilliant bus route that offers regular services to and from St Helier and many other must see attractions around the island.


The Bon Viveur isn't suitable for disabled visitors. As the staircases are quite steep it is also not ideal for those with limited mobility. Please note that this hotel does not have a lift.

Perfect position, friendly and efficient staff. Room as described. Breakfast very good and freshly prepared to order.
A fan in the room would have been useful, although I sure one would have been provided if we’d asked.

Very comfortable room and facilities, clean and tidy, above their restaurant. Staff friendly and helpful, super breakfasts and the (Italian) restaurant is well worth eating other meals in. Good location, with views across the harbour from the restaurant, and a short walk to bus stops which can take you...

We went on a short break staying at the Bon Viveur which is an Italian restaurant - the Sorrento in St Aubin - with rooms above.
