The list given below is only a rough guide and none are definites. Please contact direct for details:
Please be aware that these establishments are NOT similar to Dover and none specifically cater for swimmers and their/your strange aquatic habits!
Public transport in Jersey is patchy unless you are staying on a bus route or within walking distance of training areas / shops / pubs / restaurants etc.
Taxi prices compare to London prices and probably less cheerful! There are several car hire companies listed below, UK and International driving licenses accepted from MOST countries.

Website: Home | De L'Etang | St Helier (deletang.je)
* Review: Irish RJ swimmer 'Eoin Gaffney' used this Guest House and found the location, right on the water front OK but thought the breakfasts left much to be desired for a hungry Irishman. So if you don’t do gargantuan breakfasts – this is for you!*
Thalatta Guest House,
31 Cleveland Road,
Tel: 01534 730156
*Review - Recommended by Australian’s Ian & Pat Byrne, also Lee & Barry 'The Shingle Stomper' Wakeham and Scotland’s Blair clan. Apparently they leave a decent continental breakfast out for ‘early risers’. Within walking distance of sea front and town centre*
Self Catering Flats, Cottages and Apartments

*Review - A walk to the harbour and many nice restaurants nearby. It was useful having access to the kitchen for sorting all swim kit. Clean with loads of hot water, washing machine and tumble drier. Much nicer than a hotel.
