5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

Stayed for 3 nights-warm welcome,car taken and parked for us, room with sea view was lovely. Ate in restaurant one night and breakfast every day-quality of food was top notch. Not cheap but we felt we got value for money. Would recommend

Almost gave this 3 blobs rather than 4 on account of the steep cost of this hotel. In reality, the staff are good and attentive and the bedroom although small was fairly opulent. Breakfast was excellent - great eggs benedict and the orange juice was freshly pressed and tasted great. So lots of good things. Just seems an extraordinary price - almost London rates - for the five star rating.

Very impressed with the welcome we received at this hotel. Service was excellent and the staff very friendly. Everywhere in the hotel was spotlessly clean which all added up to a most enjoyable weekend break for my wife and myself. Would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

I had the pleasure of staying here for two nights.

Lots of old fashioned luxury, with a modern twist. So nice to have the room key ready and the free Wifi code waiting for me.

The eggs benedict for breakfast were fabulous, with proper waiter service and no buffet.

Stayed for four nights in a suite with a balcony. The suite we were in was comfy, spotlessly clean and well appointed, as was the rest of the hotel. The view from the balcony was spectacular and caught most of the harbour. All the staff were very pleasant and helpful and provided service that was second to none. We never actually ate in the hotel at night but the breakfast was delicious. Thank you OGH Hotel and all the staff that work there for making our stay so pleasant. We will be back sooner rather than later.

We stayed for 3 nights, attentive staff, beautiful room with a beautiful view, room service and upkeep is second to none.
Situated close to the high street, St Peter Port and local attractions. Would highly recommend!
The staff went beyond the call of duty to ensure we had the perfect stay, and they succeeded :)

We stayed here for two nights in one of the rooms with a balcony, and sea views. The room was beautifully decorated, and we liked the extra touches, real orchids, and freshly cut flowers. The vast selection of tea and coffee etc.
We ate at the hotel restaurant the first evening, and the service, attention to detail, In fact the whole ambiance of the room was delightful. The food was delicious, do try their chicken liver pate, it's scrumptious. The steak was cooked to perfection, the crab salad and new potatoes were tasty and as fresh as you could get. We sadly couldn't fit a dessert in, but their Irish coffee is the biz!
We would have scored this hotel with 5 stars, but for the fact that it doesn't have an indoor pool, and the public areas are not big, so although, at this time of the year, it was ideal, I would not enjoy staying here so much in the high season.
Having said that, all the public rooms were beautifully furnished and intriguing.
