Although we had stopped at other Red Carnation hotels before, we had never stopped at the Old Government House in Guernsey. It was an absolute delight and we will readily go back as soon as possible to ensure the excellent standards they have set are being maintained!

We travelled with my 82 year old mother who had one of the refurbished King rooms and we had a suite. My wife loved the room quality and the attentive service of all of the staff. Rarely do you find a hotel where all the staff (without exception) are so obliging and helpful.

We will unreservedly not hesitate to recommend the Old Government House to our friends and business colleagues.

Tagged a stay in this hotel on the end of a trip to see my sister. Had had a bit of a torrid time on Guernsey with rubbish weather and shredding two tyres on the granite which seems to be lurking on every road!! Fancied a bit of pampering so thought a stay at the OGH hotel would help us go home on a high! When we arrived, the staff could not be more helpful. The Concierge staff were absolutely delightful and my two year old was spoilt rotten and frankly started to turn into a bit of a diva! The hotel itself is beautiful with a real old world charm. It was like stepping back in time and just what I needed after a stressful week. The food in the brasserie was great except we hadn't booked and so had to sit in the lounge area which took the gloss off of it a bit. The highlight for me though was probably the afternoon tea. Gorgeous little cakes and pastries served with a tea of your choice. The sun finally came out on our final day so we got to spend some time in the lovely warm pool and relax on the sun loungers.
The only thing I would do differently next time is maybe request a room that didn't overlook the town. It was quite noisy on the Saturday night with the late night drinkers and there were the crazy Guernsey 4am bin collections which woke us up on both nights!
All in all though we had a fabulous time and are looking forward to a future visit.

Just had a lovely 9 day break in this superb hotel. Excellent service in all counts from very friendly and efficient staff. Food was really good from breakfast to afternoon tea to dinner. Room was spaceous,clean and tastefully furnished with a huge double bed.
My wife and I were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary and we received a complimentary bottle of champagne with a plate of fresh fruit and chocolate sauce served to us in our room just after we had arrived. A lovely gesture.
If I have one critism it is the limited space round the pool although we always managed to get a sunbed to relax on with a nice cold beer from the bar and enjoy the late afternoon sun after a days sightseeing.

Visited Guernsey for the first time and enjoyed it very much.
Stayed at the OGH for the weekend and had a wonderful time. The hotel is beautiful, in excellent condition with very good food. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's obvious they pride themselves on their customer service.
I would recommend a visit to Guernsey but be sure to stay at the OGH.

A lovely hotel in a great postition. It's right in town so great to wander down to the shops in the day and lots of restaurant choices close by at night. Beautiful conservatory area to eat in, great club sandwich and delicious afternoon tea! Service was occasionally slow but didn't bother us. It's one of the more expensive hotel but we thought it was worth it.

The staff make you feel "special" the minute you walk through the door. Everything is focussed on the guest's requirements and this is a refreshing almost unique experience these days.
Our experience could hardly have been bettered and it is one of the best Hotels I have stayed at in 50 years of regular travel !

The only slight criticism I could make was that the room was slightly small for a 5 day stay , but it was fully equipped, exceptionally clean and the Harbour view amply made up for this .

Food was excellent both in the Brassiere and the flag ship Governers restaurant and the breakfast was superb in all respects.
