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 stayed recently for the third time this year . We have been staying at the OGH for six years now when we visit Guernsey . We were as always well looked after. Staff in all departments could not do enough for us. They add the personal touch which makes all the difference. We had lovely weather and were able to make good use of the outdoor pool . The food was excellent and service really good. Collapse

Visited with my wife to celebrate her birthday 50+ couple. Selected the Celwbration paclage / room. Thoroughly enjoyed the hotel hospitality and service. The OGH is clearly a central and very popular upmarket hotel catering for a variety of guests. The Brasserie restaurant is excellent with a great little terrace overlooking at Peter's Port. Food was good although one of our main dishes was returned due to being heavily salted. The second attempt was excellent. Room quality and cleanliness wwas excellent. Andi - the front desk customer relationship manageress was excellent. Collapse
Spa morning, chill out by the pool, exceptional service.

Took advantage of the morning spa treatment package. Went with a friend after staying at another hotel on Guernsey. We turned up with all of our luggage, including a big bouquet of flowers I'd been given. I'd called reception the day before to ask if they'd look after out bags whilst we were at the spa. No problem at all, concierge met us and took care of our bags and also put the flowers in water whilst we were there. We also asked for a taxi to be arranged to take us to the airport. All of the staff were welcoming, extremely polite and friendly. We went down to the spa area where we chose our treatments, I chose the aromatherapy massage. Cami, who gave me a lovely massage was very professional and personable which enabled me to relax fully. I completely lost track of how long the massage took, I could've stayed there for hours. (My friend had a facial and also really enjoyed it, she said the only thing she'd change if we did it all again was to have the treatment at the end, as she then went in the pool and washed all of the nice creams off that had just been put on.) Once the massage had finished Cami gave my friend and I a tour of the spa facilities. We spent most of the time sunbathing and swimming in the outdoor pool, handily they provide sun cream and after sun at the poolside. It would've been nice to have some water available at the poolside on a warm day. After the pool we tried out the jacuzzi which was bubbly, I also went in the steam room and sauna for a few mins and both were clean and hot. After the spa we went up to put our swim bags with the concierge. We had a lunch booking at a restaurant in town and the hotel kept our bags safe whilst we were out. When we returned reception found a bag to put the flowers in so that we could carry them more easily and the whole team couldn't have been more helpful. In all, a lovely hotel, excellent staff and a brilliant morning. Collapse

Visited recently with a group of friends 10 in all. What a wonderful experience. Great Location, 1st class Hotel, with courteous and professional staff. nothing was to much trouble and the facilities were excellent. Personally can't understand why it is showing short of 5 stars in your ratings. Guernsey is a lovely quaint place with stunning scenery and this hotel fits it well. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wants to fully enjoy a special hotel. Collapse

We recently visited the old government house hotel for a birthday getaway. The staff were incredibly helpfull and were always on hand to provide exceptional service. They helped me pick out the perfect room for the nature of our trip and I couldn't fault it. I appreciate some rooms may not have such a good view as others but from the room that was recommended to me, from the balcony we could see the whole of St Peter port and neighbouring islands Herm and Sark. The food at the hotel was superb. We had two breakfasts, lunch and a dinner at the brasserie during our stay. All excellent. The weather was beautiful so we enjoyed our lunch out in the immaculate garden. The pool is lovely and warm and in a real sun trap. On a hot day you wouldn't want to hang around when it comes to bagging yourself a sunbed as they are quite limited. My fiance used the spa and enjoyed back shoulder neck and head massages. I was impressed with the gym as it had everything you would expect from a good quality gym including a decent free weights area. I can't speak highly enough about this hotel and I'd like to visit more in the Red Carnation Hotel Collection in the future. Collapse
