I decided to stay here after getting a really nice friendly feel for the place thanks to the reservation staff. It was a big birthday and I wanted somewhere v nice for 2 adults and 2 children. We stayed in the gorgeous Herm suite with beautiful views and a balcony. Children were in an adjoining room. So. Staff were amazingly...

My partner booked us in as a surprise so I had no idea what to expect when we arrived but I was wowed from the start with how stunning OGH is - our room was well kitted out, beautifully decorated and incredibly comfortable. The attention to detail was brilliant - even simple things like an umbrella in the room. The...

We had an excellent break in Guernsey and the OGH was brilliant. The staff are incredibly helpful and attentive. The breakfasts are awesome and plentiful. The room was small and the en-suite/shower was also small. The room was very warm and we could bit turn of the blue light in the en-suite. However we did get a free upgrade and...

We got off to a faltering start as we had to ask to change rooms as our original sea view room had defective double glazing which meant you couldn't actually see the view. To be fair to the staff they dealt with this in the best possible way and upgraded us to a sea view room with balcony. We were...

The standard is exceptional, the staff literaly cannot do enough for you and I just wish our...

We only ended up as we had been staying in a horrible hotel on the island. When we arrived before we even got put of the taxi Stewart had all our bags gathered around him. The receptionist are lovely and nothing is too big or too small. The bedrooms are beautiful and the beds are so comfy I didn't want...

We came to the government house by default as our booking had been for a sister hotel which had closed for refurbishment. As the Old Government House is five star I felt rather overwhelmed by the high level of service in every area. (they even offer to pack your bag for you !!) I cannot fault the hotel but I...

Found the hotel tired. Great facade but when you dig deeper it really does not deserve a five star rating. The pool is not at all impressive compared to other hotels on the island. Staff stiff and unfriendly.

Stayed here for the weekend while visiting friends on the island. Our arrival was rather underwhelming with the reception staff on the Friday evening seeming uninterested in dealing with us. We paid more to stay in a sea view room, so I was very disappointed to get to the room and only catch a glimpse of the sea in the...

To all the staff at the Old Government House especially Andrew Chantrell and Andi Raziya. In a similar way to last year and not wishing to replicate information from the review at this time I do have to offer my apologies for not writing this letter to you upon our return from the most wonderful hotel, the Old Government House....
