We went with friends for afternoon tea - all lovely. Great friendly service, staff obviously enthusiastic about their place of work. Beautiful building and the tea was fabulous. If we return to /guernsey this would be the place to stay.

Delighted to find this gem of a hotel still as good as I knew it 50 years ago. The staff could not do enough to make us welcome and my daughter's dog was looked after better than at any other hotel he has stayed in. We dined in the Brasserie and thoroughly enjoyed each meal - with one small proviso...

The Old Government House Hotel is a fantastic place to stay with outstanding service and a warm and comfortable atmosphere; we had a wonderful time. Right in the heart of St Peter Port, this is an ideal location to explore all Guernsey has to offer; the staff can't have been more helpful or attentive. The evening meal at The Brasserie...

Overall we enjoyed our 4 night stay in OGH the room was a little small but the suitcases did fit in the wardrobe so were out of the way. The check in was quick and we were shown to our room but not given much other information even about where to go for breakfast. The staff were all very polite...

First of all, the rooms are small but for 1 or 2 nights they are good. Staff are brilliant, very attentive and helpful. Bed was good to sleep in and I would go back to this hotel. Location is excellent as you can walk into town in less than 2 minutes.

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at this hotel, however there is little that is needed !! Accommodation and dining both excellent. Spa available (but not used by me). Go for the rooms with a view over the harbour towards Herm (worth a trip in itself). Central for all local services. Wouldn't hesitate to go again.

A stay here is a very nice experience. On arrival, the reception desk were friendly and informative offering iced lemon water which was much appreciated after our long ferry trip. Our car was taken and parked for us due to the restricted parking facilities. However, we did not use our car for the duration as the bus service in Guernsey...
