A Link to the Past

Whether dancing around fallow fields in the morning mist or being used as prize bait for the princely sum of one guinea during Lieutenant Munro’s ‘Killiecrankie Hunt’ of the early 1800s, Jersey’s hares share many of the characteristics of Greenhills Country House Hotel.

They are often described as diligent, virtuous and ambitious - qualities which we strive tirelessly towards each day at Greenhills.

A Friendly Face

A bronze hare statuette has sat in a hallway inglenook at the Greenhills for many years, watching our guests come and go.

With a business as solid as our granite foundations, parts of which date back to 1674, we’re as much a part of Jersey’s history as our long-eared bronze friend sitting in our entrance hallway.

 

COUNTRY CHARACTER

Breathing New Life

He’s always around at Greenhills, so look carefully, you never know when he might appear!
