Fabulous hotel with superlative service that you don't get in many places around the world. This was top of its class. Beautiful suite, everything catered for. Delicious food and the curry room was special. We will return

We went to the OGH for 3 nights to celebrate our anniversary and the hotel were extremely attentive. Such a warm welcome upon arrival and throughout our stay, we could not fault anything, staff, food and accommodation were first class. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is very nice and has extremely friendly staff. However it is a bit dated but it adds to the relaxed feel of Guernsey! Therefore do not expect the same as a 5star in a major city. Room was very comfortable and breakfast was good.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary. The staff were fantastic and could not have done any more for us - they made us feel truly special. The room was large and comfortable and the food and service were definitely 5* - afternoon tea is a must! The island is beautiful and we would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Guernsey.

Stayed 3 nights in this wonderful 5* hotel where staff are so friendly and attentive and nothing is too much trouble. Andi Raziya welcomed us when we arrived and gave us a tour and set the tone. Andrew, the General Manager runs an efficient, welcoming hotel and the four of us enjoyed a fun entry into 2018 with a delicious, outstanding menu. The chef is to be congratulated. The kitchen then produced an amazing brunch the next day as well and Gareth Burns led an amazing team. The four days were relaxed. It did not matter that the weather was grey, windy and very wet because the hotel was so warm and hospitable - in the brasserie where we enjoyed our breakfasts and an excellent evening meal where particular mention should be made of the service provided by Ken and Remi, in the gin bar where Victor served us with good advice on an amazing choice of gins, in the spa, at the delightful afternoon tea with roaring fire, where Caroline was charming and helpful. The hotel had a minor problem with our room; the hotel staff actively ensured our stay was not impaired, we were moved to a better room at their instigation. We also left some belongings behind by accident and hotel speedily contacted us to organise their safe return to us.

We stay at this hotel every year, it's our home away from home. Always first class service and this year was no exception, from the minute you step through the door the staff ensure you have the warmest of welcomes and go out of their way to ensure your total comfort, the stresses and strains of life completely evaporate on entering this oasis of peace. Elegant surroundings and excellent food, it was particularly nice to see the manager and assistant manager working alongside their staff on New Years Eve to serve the meal, they lead by example and the staff have a clear sense of purpose and appear to genuinely enjoy their work.

Stayed just one night with my wife as a break from the kids. It was perfect the room clean comfortable and quiet. The decor was tasteful and well thought out. The food excellent we had dinner and breakfast both were top notch. The thing that stood out most were the staff. At all levels they were courteous and attentive exceptionally professional and you felt they genuinely were interested in your wellbeing, nothing was too much trouble. It does come at a price but would recommend this hotel and it would be our first choice for a stay in Guernsey.

My husband and I spent three very comfortable nights at this wonderful hotel located right in the heart of St Peter Port. The service was outstanding – every staff member took a genuine interest in our well being, and some went way above and beyond the call of duty. On the first night the chef Robert overhead me talking about (of all things) porridge and we ended up having a chat. I told him I like steel cut oats (pinhead oats). To my delight and amazement, he had some specially brought in from the mainland which was no mean feat with the storms playing havoc on supply lines. Such a wonderful service ethos - thank you Robert! Breakfast was varied, plentiful and beautifully fresh – amazing that they could get such a good selection of fresh fruit there at this time of year. We enjoyed dinner in the restaurant one night which was excellent. We loved exploring the different parts of the hotel – the Crown Club and the lovely room with all the couches and fireplaces. Our room was warm, clean and comfortable - we really couldn’t fault this excellent hotel. Thanks to all the staff (particularly Robert) for making our first trip to beautiful Guernsey so memorable.

Just returned from a 5 day break. Reputation as the islands best hotel. Thoroughly justified. People,food survive outstanding. Will definitely return will not go anywhere else to stay on the island. Cant wait to go back in the Summer.

My wife and I fancied a long weekend away in Guernsey and as we were travelling out of season thought it a good idea to stay neat St Peter Port as there is more to do there this time of year. Liked the look of the OGH and it was certainly a very good decision. The whole stay, as previous reviewers have stated, was very enjoyable and you constantly have the feeling of being well looked after. From the interior of the hotel, both rooms and common areas, to the high quality of service by the staff it was excellent. OK, the layout of some of the floors is a little unusual and takes a few try's to navigate, but it is more than compensated for by the lounge areas with open fires, the friendly bars and the variety of food in the restaurants. I particularly enjoyed the Curry Room where it the unusual menu was far removed from the normal UK curry restaurants we are used to. I cannot praise the hotel management and staff too highly and if you want an old fashioned indulgent break try this place out.
