The Old Government House Hotel & Spa dates back to 1858 and is one of the Channel Islands most historically famous hotels. It is also one of the leading hotels in Guernsey, located in the heart of the island's capital, St Peters Port, making it perfect for exploring Guernsey and other islands of the Bailiwick. The hotel boasts an indulgent health club and spa for your relaxation needs. Whether it is a refreshing swim in the heated outdoor pool or an 'al fresco' lunch on the terrace, you deserve to treat yourself after a hard day. Our two distinctive restaurants – The Curry Room at The Governor's serves authentic Indian cuisine and the more informal French style OGH Brasserie with fresh local seafood are popular venues for both residents and Islanders alike. The restaurant boasts two AA Rosettes and a Gold Award by VisitGuernsey.

We didn't stay at the hotel, but did have coffee and used the Spa Facilities. I booked before we arrived and this is a busy Spa, so book ahead! The facilities are very nice and clean. Customer service is second to none Joao (sorry if spelt wrong) who was on reception was absolutely perfect for front of house and an asset to the team (hope you have a nice holiday) Sara (I think is in charge) was very helpful. Thank you to abbey for my massage. Not sure which poor soul got my partner, but thank you he loved all his treatments!! When we come back to Guernsey, we will return. Collapse

We have just returned from this wonderful hotel. I have stayed in many hotels, but the service offered at the OGH is second to none. All the staff could not do enough for us, but the manager, Harry, was particularly impressive. The public rooms are beautiful and quirky, and the dining room a fabulous breakfast venue. The food was wonderful and very varied. we even had a fab curry one night in the spectacular old Governor's room. The hotel is very well placed to explore the beautiful and fascinating island of Guernsey, too. Collapse

We arrived by cruise ship and after taking part in a gin experience and trip around the island, we headed to OGH for another gin tasting! We had not booked ( which I would do in advance next time, just so they knew we were coming) but were warmly greeted by several members of the hotel staff. There are a good selection of venues to eat and drink in wonderful settings. We opted for the Crown Club because of the gin tasting! Ashling, who is charge approached us and after speaking to the chef due to the food element, started explaining about the 3 different options. Each option has 3 gins to try! Our kind of experience. So the food was ordered, a magnificent lamb curry called Bunny Chow, served in a large tasty bun. Then the drinks arrived. Each gin was tasted neat, then with a flavour, then ice and finally tonic. Every time we added something, the taste of the gin changed! Wonderful. In the first we added crushed apple, to the second ruby grapefruit and my favourite the third - coriander. This with the curry was a taste sensation. I hope this is correct because having tasted gins in the morning and now more in the afternoon my memory may have become a little cloudy! The price was good as well, with a generous tip ( as we were all very happy ) £80 for 3 people. In our opinion a wonderful early afternoon experience in exceptional surroundings. Some people ate outside on a beautiful terrace but we opted for inside looking out onto the swimming pool. Beautiful crisp white napkins, what more can I say. I suppose the fact that the sea conditions had changed since the morning meant that the tender operation had to be suspended was a sobering experience for us, as we had to stand on the quay side for a few hours! Next time we are in St Peter Port we will try nos 1 or nos 3 Thank you Collapse

A comfortable, relaxing stay at the OGH (as it brands itself), in a luxurious 'King' room, recently refurbished to a high standard. The service offered was of a high standard especially in the restaurant, where we commend the professionalism of Maitre D' Ken, and in the excellent Spa-Gym facility, overseen by genially efficient manager, Danny. We dined in the Brasserie restaurant twice during our stay and in the Governor's Room on a third evening. Overall, the food served was prepared and presented at a very high standard. One thing that we noted that must be improved would be to include all the key ingredients served in a dish in it's menu description. The Lobster soup offered in the dinner menu contained (unrequired) bacon pieces. This ingredient was not mentioned in the soup's menu description, significantly altered the flavour of a seafood dish, and could cause a problem if served without warning to pescatarians, members of the various faiths which do not favour the eating of pork products and any other diners - such as this reviewer - who do not wish to eat bacon / chorizo / ham pieces unnecessarily added to seafood meals.
