Located quite near to the main High Street in St Peter Port, the OGH harks back to a bygone age of British and Colonial hotels. The building is beautiful,the Coward Room is furnished very nicely and suits the afternoon tea guests.
The staff are very personable and most are eager to assist (a few notables less eager,but they are in the minority). The Governors is a great fine dining option within the Hotel,excellent food and service, the Brasserie is a more "run of the mill" choice in the informal guest house style. The bar is linked to the restaurant and drinks can be taken by the pool.
The rooms vary,some are very impressive and the others can look quite tired,with sea views for some guests and views across a graveyard and access road for the less lucky. Internet in room,Pay TV and a limited selection of cable channels are provided.
Overall this is the best option on the island of Guernsey with adjoining Spa it attracts a mix of business guest,celebs and retired couples.Certainly not an 18-30 crowd! but a fine hotel keeping traditions alive.
