I was spoiled enough to stay at the OGH for five nights this January. I loved the classic style mixed with modern comfort. The cleanliness was superb, and I didn't find anything dirty during my entire stay. The nightly turn-down meant I came back to my room after dinner to a ready bed with newspaper, TV remote and a baked...

Family holiday, stayed here for a week in July, all I can really say is this is just a fantastic hotel. Beautiful building and gardens.The rooms were lovely but the ones we had were quiet small. Very nice outside pool, gym and spa area. All staff are friendly and approachable, the reception staff are very knowledgeable of the local area,...

Just returned from The Old Government House Hotel, Guernsey after having the most wonderful time. All the staff went out of their way to make us so welcome. The food was superb and all the little extras were catered for. This is not our first visit and will certainly not be our last.

Much improved over the past several years. A premium hotel at a corresponding price - but worth it. Great breakfast and dinner, but there are other exciting places to eat nearby which are well worth a look.

Quite simply, this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. OGH is classically elegant, offering you affordable luxury. Even before you get there you are sent a ‘guest preference form’ so they can supply everything that will help make your stay perfect - and from the moment you arrive, you are treated like royalty. Going for a ‘mother...

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...

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...
