Got lost a few times with the varying corridors and stairways. Room very comfortable and clean if not a bit dated. Buffet breakfast excellent. Bar very nice for pre / post dinner drink.
Staff extremely helpful and very friendly, helped me out organising an appointment & transport to the local doctors for minor medical condition I was experiencing.
My room had a lovely view across the terrace and park beyond. Good location sitting on top of a hill, easy walk to town centre.

Room Tip: Room was sunny and very comfortable. Lovely view over terrace and to park across the road. Only neg...

We stayed at the Duke of Richmond for the second time in just over 2 months. The room second time around didn't have a sea view, but the outlook was still over a quiet street and park, so not too bad. As with our first stay, the staff and food were both excellent. The prices aren't cheap, but the quality and service are very good. The pool is very nice and the hotel provide nice soft towels, iced soft juices and even sun tan products, something i've not seen before at a hotel. Its not somewhere i would stop every trip, due to the price, however, its definately worth it for a treat!

Room Tip: Use the pool facilities if the weathers good.

A nice quiet and comfortable hotel in a good setting, if a little far from some of the better restaurants.

Hotel staff are welcoming and friendly and rooms spacious, quiet and comfortable.

Gives all you would expect in the price range.

We have stopped in the OGH and much preferred the DOR. WE like this group of hotels and invariably have great service. The hotel manager was very visible and took time to engage with guests. The front of house team were all very friendly, helpful and informative. Our room was lovely, very spacious and well appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and will return next time we are on the island.

Certainly not cheap and the rooms are New York size rather than spacious, but this is a good place to stay in an ever more expensive Guernsey. Within walking distance of the city centre, this very comfortable hotel has a great restaurant and the staff cannot be faulted.

Party of four of us stayed last week, in two superior rooms. The rooms were spacious, superbly decorated to a high class, beds as comfortable as you could wish for and truely King size. Decor throughtout the hotel was to a high standard and can be described as quirky. Service and staff were top notch, while not always a fan of dining in a hotel, the menu and food were superb.Looking forward to staying here again.
