Stayed here for 1 night on business. Is the only 5 star on the island apparently. The building is very old and grand all classic and stylishly decorated. Had a queen delux room, nicely appointed but fairly small I would say for the price. Nice coffee and biscuits in the room and L'Occitane products in the bathroom. 2 bars and...

If you are looking for first class luxury then look no further. This hotel is renowned for its excellent customer service and attention to detail. Something for those special occasions, or just for a drink in the bar .... you will not be disappointed. Excellent food, excellent service.

Haven't been for ages but rocked up as birthday drinks in motion for a friend. Pleasantly surprised. Less pomp n ceremony, good vibe, great service from staff despite drinkers paying little attention. The added touches of great nibbles with a sense of privacy with service is second to none. Thank you Ashley! Not your obvious Friday night drinking hole but...

Housekeeping was highly proffesional and practically...

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...
