                The location was great.

                The Queen room we were given was one of the smallest we have ever stayed in. The shower in the bathroom was so small a contortionist would have found it difficult to get in and out of. The breakfast offering of Smoked Haddock was miserable in size hidden under one egg. Also the imposition of a discretionary service charge of 10% on all food and drink purchases was an imposition that was disgraceful when one considers the cost of the offerings here. I always like to make my own decisions on tipping and who it is paid to. This way of getting people to opt in to or out of tipping led us to cancel our planned dinner celebration at the hotel of our wedding anniversary.

                7.4

                A very well appointed hotel particularly in the public areas and an excellent location for St Peterport. Attentive staff and a genteel atmosphere.

                The standard double rooms are cramped and dark and are certainly not value for money. I would recommend you seek an alternative if that is the only accommodation available.

                9.6

                The overall quality of the facilties, bar & eating areas, and the standard of service from all the staff

                Bedroom small, but made up for by the rest of the hotel

                9.6

                Although, just a one night stay, a truly memorable one. The food was excellent, attention to detail second to none and we were thoroughly spoilt when the staff learned we were there for a celebration. An evening in The Governor's Restaurant is a must.

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                All aspects of our stay were enjoyable from lounging by the pool to exploring St. Peter Port to relaxing at the hotel bar and restaurants. Breakfast was a lovely experience to start the day - it was tranquil, relaxed and all dishes were cooked fresh. The staff were so polite and friendly at all times and nothing was too much effort. We had the 7 course dining menu on the Sunday evening of our stay and it trully was a wonderful experience. We can not fault this hotel and can only praise it and would recommend it.

                We didn't like having to leave - we wished we had booked a longer stay!!!!

              • Group of friends
                8.2

                The staff where fantastic, you often felt they went beyond the call of duty, proficiently professional, welcoming, down to earth and always helpful. The hotel truly pride's itself on ensuring client satisfaction and providing the finest 5 star service, to which it so delivers.

                Given the price and being one of the best hotel's on the island, I hope they finish the re-furnishing program soon on all rooms and bring about a little contemporary feeling to the younger generation.

              • Older travelers
                9.2

                The welcome and the staff, they couldn't do enough for you and nothing was too much trouble and they made our anniversary special

                The location. There was a lot of noise outside on Saturday night from young locals and we didn't get a lot of sleep. However, this was no fault of the hotels.

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Great location, very professional and caring personel, nice english style interior, fine restaurant

                Room far too small. The announced king size bed was certainly not larger than 140 cm. The night was uncomfortable. Maybe the upgraded rooms are in better relation with the projected standard of the hotel.

              • Group of friends
                8.8

                Having stayed in hotels worldwide for business for over 40 years I knew on arrival that I would enjoy my first visit to OGH. It is rare for me to re-visit but I am very loyal and I will return.

                room 221 was a disappointment - 319 met expectations and I hope to book 127 next time. local knowledge is a powerful thing...

                All of the staff were very friendly and attentive and the hotel facilities are excellent. The pristine white towels on the padded sunloungers around the outdoor pool just made it that bit more special.

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Pleasant staff, good food, central location. Clean, tidy and well furnished. Hotel was good value for money

                The bedroom was very small to the extent that wardrobe door hit the bed on opening and there was no room for bedside cabinet on one side

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                the rooms were lovely the views beautiful,great breakfasts ,plenty of choice and exceptionally helpful staff. We enjoyed using the outdoor pool and great spa facilities.

                The cost of a glass of wine in The Brasserie . This stopped us using this facility as often as we would have liked.
