First visit to Guernsey and the Old Government Hotel and Spa was in the perfect location to be. From the minute that we walked in the staff were friendly and attentive. We had our first meal in the curry room and the food was beautiful, as was the wine flight which was wine chosen by the chef. The next night... More

Had a long weekend / mini-first year wedding anniversary getaway with my wife to the OGH. We had spent our wedding in one of Red Carnation 's London hotels, so chose the place based on reputation. Did not disappoint! The hotel was quite accommodating in providing a room far away from a wedding celebration and we had peace and quiet... More

We last stayed two years ago and rarely return to the same place but our last stay had been so good that we decided to return. I booked the same classic room which we had been happy with. Very small but comfortable. Before our visit I had an e mail to inform us that there would be a function one... More

My wife and I visited here late October to celebrate an anniversary. We were looking forward to our stay here and I'm delighted to report that we were not disappointed. We were warmly greeted upon arrival and offered a glass of sparkling wine during our check-in process. This was indicative of the level of attentiveness and friendliness that all the... More

There is a real sense of history here, you can imagine the German officers being billeted here. The decor is very sumptuous, I really liked the padded wallpaper with borders on each panel, I appreciate craftsmanship. 5 star hotels can seem impersonal and corporate but that is not the case here, the staff were friendly and welcoming. We took advantage... More

The hotel is decorate lovely and the rooms we saw were all beautifully furnished, albeit small. We were upgraded to a deluxe room and so relieved as the rooms we had were still very small so no idea what the standard room size was ! The service of the staff and the quality of food was very good though and... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this hotel & staff. We visited Guernsey for the weekend with our children (4&5) and from the moment we checked in we were looked after so well. The children had their own small dressing gowns in the room and their own Oggie Bear on their beds. The evening turndown was a complete treat which... More

The hotel building is rather dated, but that only adds to it's charm. We stayed in room 108, with large bay windows, from which we could see all of the other channel islands and harbour, quite a view to wake up to! The room was nicely decorated and clean, with plenty of literature regarding Guernsey and tourist attractions. Everything required... More

My husband and I were impressed as soon as we arrived at hotel with our hired car quickly taken away and stored in car park. We were then offered a glass of wine and then shown to our twin bedded room with sea view, very impressed. We were then shown round the rest of the luxurious hotel. Fruit and chocolates... More
