We stayed in the OGH from 2nd September for 9 nights via the air bubble from the Isle of Man. What an amazing week we had and the hotel just complemented it. A lovely traditional, very comfortable hotel. Coming back at the end of a busy day out was a total pleasure. We had a lovely room with a balcony & were lucky to have the sun shining through our window every morning. The breakfast and breakfast service was totally excellent, the staff could not do enough for you. All of the staff were really lovely but Alexandro & Ula (who was a joy) really stood out. Should we come back to Guernsey we would without a doubt stay there again. Thank you all.

Staff were excellent, views on a good day were excellent too. The location is close in distance to the high street but via a steep hill and then to the harbour by flights of step (or longer via less steep high street). the building has character but is somewhat rambling. Queen room OK but not large, lighting chaotic controls and heating/cooling unpredictable. Written information about the hotel, facilities, restaurants, menus etc all poor to non existent.

Spa closed for entire stay - hugely disapppinting
Hugely disappointed that the entire spa area was closed for routine maintenance during my stay. I specifically chose this hotel to be able to relax and use the spa. The rest of the hotel, service, staff and breakfast was excellent, but it is really unreasonable to advertise such an expensive room and not mention the maintenance.
