“This hotel has excellent food with friendly and helpful staff”
Reviewed October 14, 2010

We were very impressed with this hotel. The facilities are very good, and the hotel was welcoming with extremely helpful and friendly staff. The food was superb. We had a hire car and the hotel car park is limited in size and difficult to access. The staff whenever we wanted our car brought it round to the front for us. Excellent service throughout the hotel.

We had five glorious days at this charming hotel where the service was first class, discreet and attentive. The food in the main resturant was very good but the Governors dining was amazing seven courses of the best food l have ever had and l have dined in top London resturants. The location was good near all the shops, so we could walk there.
I know l keep talking about food but the high tea is a must at the hotel very old English and quaint in the grand drawing room. Could not fault the service, we were treated very well and the welcome is warm and friendly, the garden is very relaxing and the room clean, well maintained and perfect for our first break all year.
It is so nice to be in a non chain style hotel which has character and is immaculate, it felt like days gone by...manners, charm and good service...also love the spa a lovely much needed facility very nice!!

The OGH is situated in an ideal location in St Peter's Port, very close to the centre. The staff are all very welcoming and efficient and on arrival you immediately know that you have arrived at a first class hotel. Our room, although a little small, was ideally situated overlooking the pool and garden and was attended to efficiently.
Dining in both restaurants was a pleasurable experience with good food and excellent service.
Any request for porterage or taxi's were pleasantly handled and all staff appeared to enjoy being helpful. We will certainly look forward to further visits in the future.

Myself and my wife were recently married and were lucky enough to enjoy our wedding reception at the OGH.

The staff were second to none. Before the 'Big Day' and during and even after the event have been exceptional.

The food was suberb. All 75 guests were served the same food at the same time and it all came out hot and tasting great. Everyone raved about it.

The staff even put us and several guests who had stayed overnight in a special room for breakfast and were just as helpful as the previous day.

The wedding package is also a good deal better, both in price and quality, than those offered by many hotels.

I cannot recommend the OGH enough. If you are planning a wedding, get in there, quick!

This hotel reflected its name - gracious elegance. It was located in the heart of St. Peter's Port within easy walking distance of the town. The staff were extremely attentive, friendly and helpful with answering questions regarding the town and also with confirming travel bookings.

I had a superior harbour view room which was very spacious without being huge. I had reserved a harbour view but although it was a harbour view, this entailed looking down the side of the hotel out to sea. It appeared the front harbour view rooms were suites.
The facilities in the room were excellent with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge on request. However as regards the latter, there appeared to be a limited supply of these and I felt I was fortunate to secure one. I would suggest you request confirmation in writing should you also request any extras.
