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.

Omg what a dreadful attitude some staff have. Felt like it was too much trouble. And the woman in the suit behind the bar was plain rude, didn't even get back to me. The younger member of staff which was a young girl who served it was lovely. But same for the guy who served, very cold and not at all friendly and welcoming. Wasn't asked if things were ok with it. The food was nice, but wouldn't return. However we paid £46 so it should have been good! I've stayed in five star hotels numerous times, and old over the world. First time I've ever felt this! We stayed in the Bella Luce, four star and the foods gorgeous. Staff too cannot do enough. Don't bother with that place! Angela Harrison Collapse

My husband and I stayed here this week to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary, we have never been to Guernsey before we fell in love with the island. The hotel was perfect in every way - you can tell the staff love working there as everyone was so friendly and helpful - nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely, very quiet and a beautiful view out over the pool and out to the harbour. It was clean, comfortable and you could pre-request items like hair straighteners. Every evening the room was made ready for bedtime, and a little treat was left on the bed - delicious cookies, biscuits and fudge - everything was scrumptious. On our Anniversary they even left us a card with a lovely message and two slices of cake with a chocolate written Happy Anniversary message on the plate - it's the little things like this that make a hotel stand out above the rest. Breakfast was included and there was plenty of choice from cereals, to cooked breakfast and even yummy pancakes. The restaurant staff get to know you and are always friendly and chatty - I have honestly never stayed anywhere before where the staff were all so lovely - it made such a difference. We ate dinner in the restaurant on two occasions and both times the food was amazing, I'm quite fussy but they were more than happy to accommodate any dietary requirements. We also had afternoon tea one day which was delicious and it's the first time we've had afternoon tea and not been able to finish it all - it was that good, with so many tasty cakes. We couldn't get a taxi on a couple of occasions due to there being none available - but the hotel management offered to take us, again a lovely touch and made us feel like they really cared about our experience on the island. There is nothing to fault about this hotel, if you are visiting Guernsey it's a must! The location is ideal, close to the shops and the harbour and definitely visit Herm - a gorgeous island with beautiful beaches. You won't be disappointed if you stay at this amazing hotel. Collapse

Really enjoyed a two night stay here, visiting from neighbouring Sark for a medical appointment. I could find nothing to fault at all, which (for me) is highly unusual. There are steps at the front entrance, but a (wheelchair friendly) lift is available. Having a slight disability, and booking by telephone (at short notice) I was allocated a King room which, as well as the usual bathroom facilities had a really good walk in shower. The room (and I suspect all the rooms) have the quietest air conditioning system I have ever encountered. The weather was fairly hot and I was able to control the in-room temperature easily. The bed was probably the most comfortable that I have slept in anywhere - and the blanket put (at my prior request) in the duvet cover actually stayed in place on the bed throughout both nights. The greatest thing about the OGH is the staff - all were friendly and efficient, responding to requests promptly and without fuss. As the hotel would put it, the OGH is my new "home from home" in Guernsey. It is quite expensive to stay here, but every penny you spend is well worth it. Breakfasts are first rate - served "properly" with just juices, cereals etc on a buffet table. Table service is gladly provided even for those items for those (like me!) who ask! I shall review the Brasserie separately, where I ate several memorable meals. I am returning very soon! Thank you to all the staff, who took a genuine delight in looking after me. Collapse
Beautifully developed from a Government building.

Billed as the 'best' on the island - and it is probably the 'poshest' by a long way - and reflected in the price. The welcome (with fizz) was very good and they whisked our car and bags off while telling us about facilities - very nicely done! The room was very comfortable, though the view at the back of the property was not what we had hoped for (it is set on a hill in the centre of town). The bar area outside the restaurant was VERY noisy with group after group of load 'local' guests partying. Management really should have intervened but I guess they don't want to upset regular dinner guests. Collapse
An excellent hotel well-deserving of it 5* rating

Very comfortable bedroom, and well-appointed public rooms with excellent facilities - gym and outdoor heated pool - and very pleasant staff. It is most conveniently positioned in the town with easy walking to most sites.
