Location, food, ambience, cleanliness, comfort, friendly and helpful staff all combine to make this a truly 5 star experience. Not overbearing or intrusive but polite and attentive service from everyone - reception, concierge, bar and waiting staff, housekeeping, spa and managers all excellent. We had a memorable 3 nights here and will most definitely return and try other red carnation...

We originally booked a four night stay at the OGH, whilst attending a conference. Unfortunately, due to extremely foggy weather mking flights to Guernsey impossible, we arrived one day late. We spent three excellent days, but four would have been even better. All the staff were emtremely pleasant, and couldn;t do enough to help. The room, a King with sea...

We recently visited the OGH for an indulgent short break. We have nothing but praise both for the hotel and the staff. The ambience, subdued luxury, and location gets a 10/10 from us. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who were welcoming, and helpful without being overbearing. We have stayed at several of the Red Carnation group hotels...

We decided to choose the OGH Hotel's Curry room for our very special occasion. We had aperitifs in Harrys Bar followed by a most wonderful dining experience. The staff were welcoming, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was indeed worthy of their accolades and the evening was a memorable success. Thank you all at the OGH. Claudio and Sandra

We have stayed at this hotel 3 times and love, love, love it! If you are looking for a charming yet luxurious place to stay when visiting this beautiful island, look no further. Good food, amazing service and a perfect location. Could not recommend highly enough, we will definitely be back. Hopefully for the next new year gala.

They food was just perfect , we had several dishes between us. Sea Bass, Roast Beef and Duck all was beautifully presented and cooked perfectly. I had Roast Beef which I...

I used to live in Guernsey and my second child was born there. We moved when she was one year old and we haven't been back. So I decided to take her to her birth place on a mum and daughter trip. The OGH is a fantastic hotel and the staff could not do any more in terms of service...

The OGH is a fantastic hotel right out of the top drawer. The staff are always polite and friendly. So much so that on a visit to the hotel today (Shrove Tuesday) to set up for a trade show. Ken and the ever youthful Harry dished up some freshly made pancakes for myself and my colleague before we left. In...

I have stayed in other hotels in this chain and they have all been excellent and this feels like one they forgot about because it's too complicated to come to Guernsey. They were meant to arrange a taxi to pick us up (be careful the airport often doesn't have taxis) but it didn't arrive and we were forced to wait...
