We have just returned from a three night stay at the OGH and felt we must write a review
to spread the word on what a fabulous hotel this is. Firstly the customer service is to be highly commended, with nothing being too much trouble and that goes for every member of staff we encountered. You are made to feel very special and not just a number like many large hotels, by the second day most of the staff were refering to us by name. We booked a suit and what a treat that was with fine tasteful decor with old world charm, very spacious and clean with a huge bed. The food was excellent too we had also booked the degustation menu which is a seven course dinner with wine to match every course...one word Sumptuous a very special evening indeed one which we would recommend to anyone who enjoys the fine dining experience. The brasserie was excellent too even though we were within easy walking distance of the town we ate at the hotel all three nights again with excellent service and waiter recommendations. After a days walking the coast which was beautiful by the way we arrived back at the hotel to a well deserved afternoon tea, another option not to missed full of sumptuous elegance. The location of the hotel is also a bonus just a short walk down into St Peters Port with many shops, a large harbour and castle so a car is not neccesary although we did hire one for 2 days (arranged by the hotel) so we could see all the sights and get around the coast. All in all a lovely three days on a beautiful little island full of charm and romance. This hotel really is a hidden gem and we would highly recommend it to anyone. We would like to thank all staff and management for giving us such a memorable experience. We will be back soon.
