Old Government House Hotel & Spa

5 stars

Fantastically located in the centre of St. Peter Port, The Old Government House is the only establishment in Guernsey to offer 5-star luxury. Its opulently decorated rooms, immaculate service and extensive facilities will be enjoyed by everyone from individual travellers to families.

Affectionately known as the OGH, the building dates back to the 18th century when it was used as the Governor's home, and then as the headquarters for the German forces during the occupation. The hotel has been suitably modernised over the years and today offers luxurious rooms and suites, as well as relaxing spa facilities and an outdoor heated swimming pool.
