The Saint James on Venice is well known amongst business travellers for providing the perfect place to relax after a hard day`s work. For the leisure or weekend traveller, our intimate guesthouse provides the perfect escape for couples young and old.

The St James on Venice became a Fully Halal establishment on the 4th of May 2017. Taking over the Hotel and restaurant meant that everything needed to be changed to the Halal standards, thus suppliers, rules and regulations have been in place.
