Had a wonderful meal here as part of a stay in the hotel. The food was great and the pudding was sublime. Excellent service.

Apologies its taken me a while to get around to reviewing this hotel! We visited Guernsey again just before Christmas 2016 and stayed at this hotel for three nights. The decoration is in the traditional style you would expect, the rooms and bed very comfortable. The service was a little hit and miss, the style of staff not from Guernsey... More

We were staying at the OGH so ate in the Brasserie on our first night. The food was excellent and service outstanding. Fine dining, but well worth the little extra!

A great place to have a quality lunch in an elegant brasserie. I usually have the lobster / crayfish roll.

Beautiful dining room with helpful and attentive service, but with only 2 couples eating, the atmopsphere was stwerile and lacking in atmosphere. Probably much better later in the season

Excellent scallops and sea bass. Lobster soup overwhelmed by bacon. Lamb maybe too pink. Service very attentive, maybe to much so.

One of Guernsey's top hotels situated in the heart of town. Great service, fabulous food and wonderful rooms overlooking the Castle and coast. They also have a swimming pool in the grounds for those warm summer stays. Walking distance from all the local amenities too. Go on .... spoil yourself!

My partner and I truly enjoyed the meal we had at the Brasserie. This was the in fact the best meal that we had throughout our stay in Guernsey. Josef, who was the server, gave us a warm welcome as soon as we arrived at the restaurant. He was also very efficient and attentive despite the fact that there were... More

We stayed at OGH, so eating here was an easy choice. Plenty of choice, food freshly prepared, wine list a bit pricy. Breakfast is superb.

We had a special Birthday Celebration Afternoon Tea and it was as good as ever. The service and the surroundings lift the whole experience to a very high standard indeed
