Absolutely great hotel, with the best staff ever. Rooms are great, nice and comfortable. Centrally located close to the main business area. Nice gym and great household services. Breakfast could be improved. A place to remember! One of my favourite hotels in the world for historical reasons and great service!

Arrived on Friday to a very warm welcome from the staff and management. The room was very clean and extremely well kept. As I was there for business the staff and the management could not have gone further to make my stay any better. It's a shame I was working as I would love to get to see the Ireland.... More

to one of our favourite hotels, OGH continues to give brilliant service. Part of the Red Carnation Group of upmarket hotels, staff are highly trained, friendly and helpful, without being overly deferential - giving guests the feeling that they are being really pampered. A short stay this time because of work pressures, we were lucky to enjoy really hot weather,... More

Selecting a hotel from good Trip adviser reviews, particularly a 5 star hotel, makes you uneasy if your experience differs from the good reviews. That is my position and I believe dissatisfaction is fully justified. Looking back to the Trip Advisers few, negative reviews I find a common denominator, the hotel has no competency in handling complaints. Perhaps the management... More

The Old Government House is a hotel that was built a very long time ago. It was built in 1796 as the Governor's house and then converted to a hotel in 1858. The hotel appears to have been added to in sections over time. It has an unusual stately character that is hard to describe other than elegant, The staff... More

On our first trip to Guernsey we stayed at the 4 star Duke of Richmond Hotel which was nice. During said stay we learned that the Old Government House Hotel is owned by the same company and therefore decided to give it a try which we did this time. And how was the experience at the OGH? Very friendly and... More

Very nice hotel - lots of character, tastefully done, peaceful and not at all over bearing, given that it has a 5 star rating. The staff absolutely top everything off (with an odd exception) very polite, professional and efficient whilst being friendly. Finding it hard to identify anything that could add more than other reviewers have said. Dined in the... More

What a location to celebrate a marriage milestone!! From arrival to departure it was a superb experience. The room was double aspect, light and airy and the ensuite bathroom well equipped. Attentive, friendly and knowledgeable staff for whom nothing was too much trouble. Valet parking meant our car was brought to front hotel whenever required.Magnificent breakfast in the Olive Garden... More

I have previously reviewed the OGH Hotel on several occasions during the last five years. I have had the very great pleasure of staying there at least once a month and my high regard for the hotel and its staff will have been very clear. Inevitably I have got to know many of the staff fairly well and they are... More

A conveniently situated hotel just a couple of minutes walk from the High Street and harbour, but sufficiently out of town that you’re not going to get too much in the way of any noise. In particular it’s on quite a minor road, and we certainly couldn’t hear any traffic or such like. The welcome was certainly very professional, with... More
