A terrific establishment with many old fashioned values translated into contemporary style and comforts. Everything has been considered for supreme comfort and elegance bit a certain informality is also achieved with completely outstanding staff in every department, although we did feel the reception team were not quite so organised and impressive, and the Terrace Bar slow in terms of service....

Perfect hotel for relaxation. Situated in a quiet location but very close to the shops, cafés and restaurants in and around the St Peter Port harbour. We enjoyed an excellent champagne cream tea in the Brasserie on our arrival, and I was treated to a wonderful Swedish massage at the Spa. Rooms were spacious and very clean and comfortable. The...

My husband and I spent one night at the OGH on the occasion of our daughter's wedding. The reception was held in the hotel Regency Room. I was most impressed with the efficiency of the staff, their helpful attitude and the overall attention to detail. The quality of food served to 120 people was exceptional and I have no hesitation...

Our stay here began with a tour of the hotel, which I have never had at a hotel before, and this was very useful, as we were shown where the different rooms were and how to access them. Jaro's welcome immediately made us feel we were going to like this place. The room was comfortable, Jaro showed us how to... More

We stayed for my brothers wedding, fantastic service from start to finish, very helpful staff. Room was comfortable with lovely decor. Dinner and breakfast was very good. Also a great location if you are visiting the island as it's right in the centre of town.

We loved everything about The Old Government House Hotel: our beautiful room with a balcony and sea view, the lovely public spaces and gardens, tea in the garden, piano music in the evening. What makes the hotel a stand-out, though, is the service. It is perfect. Special kudos to the concierge staff, especially Jaro, for making OGH and Guernsey a... More

We didn't stay here, we attended a wedding. What a fantastic wedding it was. The food was lovely, the staff professional but friendly, the views were breath taking. A fabulous venue and a brilliant day.
