The staff here go above and beyond, everyone went out of their way to make our stay feel special. Food was amazing, service outstanding and amenities fabulous. The view of Guernsey and the location of this hotel are the best.

From the moment you arrive, every need is met with enthusiasm and a willingness to go the extra mile. Delightful large room, well appointed with sea view.

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 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
