We stayed here a couple of years ago and it was great but now it is totally brilliant!!

The staff are so friendly and attentive and the restaurants are really special. We loved the location, the staff, our room and the entire experience.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Wake up early and watch the sun rise over the port. Amazing!

My wife & I firstvisited Guernsey 60 years ago, but this was our first visit to Old Government House and we were not disappointed. The staff were excellent, always polite and friendly. Food and accommodation could not be faulted. This may have been our first visit to OGH, but hopefully it will not be our last.

My wife & I just spent a long weekend at OGH, our first visit. Everything from arrival to departure was top rate. All the staff we encountered were extremely well trained, efficient, friendly & polite. The breakfast was very good, except for those two old bugbears, the eggs being overdone in the Eggs Benedict & the scrambled eggs. The barstaff were able to produce an acceptable gin martini, although on our first evevning they had run out of olives... The selection of gins was rather limited. These are minor quibbles. The room was well appointed (real coffee & cafetiere, top marks for that) & very nice, although the huge bed took up a lot of the room. The toiletries were of a high quality. The shower booth in the bathroom was very small, but there was also a hand hold shower in the bath. We would highly recommend the hotel, especially if you can get a special deal (we got 3 nights for the price of 2). The view from the hotel is very nice & its location very convenient for the town centre.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview room

Took my daughter, sister and niece for champagne afternoon tea and it was delicious. Service was rather slow and we did have to ask a couple of times for our tea etc however, i would definitely recommend it. It's a lovely setting and the best afternoon tea in Guernsey.

We have just returned home after a 4 night stay at the OGH with brother and sister in law. They have stayed before but it was our first time. We thought the hotel and views were stunning but it was the entire staff that really made our stay. They could not do enough for us, we were treated like royalty. We were very impressed that they remembered our name every time we saw them. Also a big thank you to Gino and Keith in the bar for looking after us. We will certainly go back.
