The OGH was the perfect venue for our Christmas wedding reception. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to relax, feel good and be treated like a VIP!!
We started planning our wedding reception 18 months before the big day and from then onwards, the service we received was helpful, professional and supportive of what we wanted. Unlike some bigger hotels, where you can feel like you are just a number, the OGH went out of their way to help us and really did make us feel like special and valued guests.
The manager of events was excellent at ensuring every detail of our day went without a hitch, such as liaising with our suppliers, arranging for the chair covers, gifts, trees, decorations, lights, table plans etc..... were placed exactly as we had asked. No request was too small, such as them providing a room we had dedicated to children's activities, they also provided a TV so the kids could watch DVDs.
The Regency room is a brilliant room for large functions, the wedding package the OGH provides, includes a delicious wedding menu which we were able to choose what we wanted (which included a menu tasting evening and meeting with the chef) it also covers the table centre pieces which again we chose exactly what we wanted, and a table plan designed by one of Guernsey's best wedding planners.
We upgraded our inclusive accommodation to the Herm Suite (although the room they provide as part of the package is lovely) The Herm Suite is truly remarkable, with a marbled en suite bathroom, and a gorgeous four poster bed (perfect for sharing breakfast in bed)! The staff did not forget a thing and on our wedding night we found rose petals in the shape of a heart on our bed, candles and a complimentary bottle of champagne and a card from the management and staff.
The next day we were again provided with complimentary champagne whilst enjoying afternoon tea after a relaxing session in the spa (which is also worth a visit). All the staff knew us by name and went out of their way to congratulate us and ensure we had everything we needed.
I could go on and on, but you really must experience the OGH for yourself. The Govenor's restaurant is divine, the Brasserie is an excellent place to enjoy great food in a relaxed atmosphere.
The OGH is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed in, and is definitely in our opinion the best hotel in Guernsey.
