We spent six nights at the OGH over Easter - we'd travelled to Guernsey for a holiday and to take part in the local running festival which takes place over the Easter weekend. We took the ferry from Poole to St Peter Port and found the hotel very easily from the ferry terminal. The hotel offers valet parking as the car park is awkward, so we handed over our keys each time we returned to the hotel. This works well but is something to bear in mind - you won't have the car just outside if you've forgotten something in it. The welcome was very warm and we were very pleasantly surprised by the room which was large and had a huge bathroom. There is no mini-bar or fridge in the rooms but you can ask for one. We rang down for fresh milk when we wanted to make a cup of tea or coffee.
The hotel is well located very close to the centre of town, although as people have mentioned it is up a hill so something to bear in mind if you have mobility problems. For me, the hotel's real selling point is the staff. All were pleasant and couldn't do enough for us. They were very friendly with my 9 year old son and when we came back from breakfast on Easter Sunday the Easter bunny had delivered an egg to the room for him, which was a lovely touch. Whoever selects the staff knows what they are doing.
Breakfast was good. We ate dinner in the hotel brasserie twice and the quality was very good. I also tried out a couple of treatments in the spa. We also made use of the hotel bar each evening. All in all we had a lovely stay and would definitely stay there again.
