    Birthday surprise

    We visited the Radio Tower to celebrate my wifes birthday and it did not disappoint. The location is stunning and the views from the top present a 270 degree view of the sea. The fact you are staying in a WW2 German Radio Tower with all its history just adds to the experience. Wouldn't recommend for anyone who struggles with stairs as there are a lot of them, but you get used to it and by the time you climb to the top you'll know what I mean. Stunning. Fantastic restaurant close by too.

    Jersey Staycation

    My sisters and I booked the Radio Tower for a mini winter staycation but because of Storm Ciran and the subsequent damage to the accommodation our booking was moved to the spring. Well, this really worked in our favour as the weather was very good and we were able to take advantage of the cliff walks, sea swims and the ever changing vista out to sea of the boat traffic and tidal conditions.

    Amazing

    We had a 3 nights stay at the Radio Tower and had an amazing time. We had seen the radio tower on a previous trip and promised ourselves we would come back and stay in the tower, it didn't disappoint, we also meet some of the jersey heritage team and they was very friendly and helpful. Hopefully we will be back again in the future.

    Unique Experience

    The Radio Tower is truly a unique stay. The views are quite simply breathtaking in any weather condition. Sleeping arrangements are cosy. Beds are custom built for the space available. Kitchen is very clean, however cooking meals daily would be a bit of challenge unless using the oven for “ready” meals.

    Super séjour

    Magnifique endroit. Il fait un peu frais en haut car un radiateur ne fonctionnait pas. Mais chaque chambre a un radiateur mobile et nous avons pu chauffer. La vue est magique !

Set on a clifftop overlooking Corbière lighthouse on Jersey’s south-west tip, the Radio Tower provides stunning self-catering accommodation over six floors and boasts a jaw-dropping 360-degree view from the lounge. Built during the Second World War by German Occupying Forces, the Tower has been sympathetically restored in a German modernist style.

A concrete staircase winds through the centre of the building, up six floors, to a wooden spiral staircase that takes you to the top floor. Authentic features include observation slots on the seaward side and steel doors on the ground floor. The second, third and fourth floors house three identical double bedrooms, each customised within the rounded walls of the Tower with fitted wardrobes and their own adjacent shower room and WC. The kitchen, with an additional WC, occupies the fifth floor and is fitted with modern appliances.

Please be aware that the Tower has a number of stairs and a narrow spiral staircase at the top to access the living area and the best views.
