This is a great hotel. Even before we arrived staff had asked us our preferences and ensured small details like having decaf tea/ hair items in my room were sorted. When we arrived the staff were fantastic - no detail was overlooked.This is a perfect hotel to treat a loved one in as the staff are brilliant and location is fab. Definitely worth upgrading to a sea view room though as room is larger than the standard one and has a better bathroom.Lovely pool area and olive grove for dining outside. Food was fantastic. Took my mum this time - Looking forward to returning with the boyfriend soon!

Room Tip: Upgrade to a sea view - it's worth the little bit extra

Fantastic hotel. Great service provided by friendly, welcoming staff in a classy but laid-back environment. We were really disappointed to leave but work & mundanity called, I'm afraid. We will definitely return, hopefully sooner rather than later.

Full marks to the whole team. They couldn't have done better. We loved the place!

Room Tip: A balcony with a sea view isn't cheap but, as my better half always says, you get what you pay for & OGH occupies an outstanding position in St. PP.

We have just spent 4 nights in the lap of luxury. Yes, we were born before 1960 and loved the period ambience. Staff were excellent and nothing was too much trouble from the Front Desk up to and including Below Stairs. The room was spacious and well maintained and the provision on our arrival of Champagne to help us celebrate was a bonus. We made full use of the outdoor swimming pool but the gym area was avoided due to our age!! We can thoroughly recommend the hotel if you wish to pamper yourselves.

Having experienced the fantastic Oyster Box, we decided to book the OGH as it is in the Red Carnation group too. There are some excellent features to the OGH but enough small criticisms to leave us slightly disappointed.
Positives
The location a couple of minutes in a quite area above the hill from town is excellent.
The service staff in all areas were very good (arguably slightly too attentive at times)
The Curry Room dining experience is simply first class...not to be missed!
Negatives
Our room (316) was fairly small and cramped for a 5 star establishment. The view was of an adjacent street and a tiny corner of the garden.
The bathroom was certainly not 5 star. A simple bath with an over bath shower that required a plastic non-slip mat really didnt look great and was not what we had expected.
I don't appreciate paying service charge on restaurant meals taken in the hotel when a staying guest.
The drinks in the new Crown club are expensive (£12 for a Mojito compared to £7.50 in the lounge area).
We had a lovely stay but overall didn't think this was a true 5 star experience although the room price most certainly was!

Room Tip: As for the room square footage and bathroom facilities before booking.

I spent two nights with my sisters in this beautiful hotel for a relaxing getaway! The afternoon tea we had in the garden area was one of the highlights of our trip. Delicious scones and nothing beats drinking champagne in the sunshine!
The gym area is very well equipped for a hotel gym, with a steam room and sauna available as well.
The new Crown Club is sophisticated and modern and the perfect location to relax with a cocktail.
The rooms are beautifully decorated with a lovely personal feel. I loved the l'occitane products!
