Why We Love This Hotel

  • 10 minutes' walk from the bustle of St. Peter Port
  • Named Guernsey's Leading Hotel five years in a row
  • Award-winning Curry Room restaurant
  • The outdoor pool has superb ocean views


White-sand beaches, mild temperatures and a laid-back attitude make Guernsey in the Channel Islands a popular spot for a short break. Set just a 10-minute walk from the bustling St. Peter Port, Old Government House Hotel & Spa is the island’s only 5-star hotel and has been named the best hotel in Guernsey by the World Travel Awards for five years running (2009–2013).

Originally built as the Governor’s House, it became a hotel in 1858 before it was occupied during World War II. Today the manor house is full of character, with a grand entrance, wooden floorboards and rambling corridors.

There are a number of room types, all elegantly finished, but the most impressive are the Seaview Kings with picturesque views of the harbor and nearby Sark and Herm islands (some also have small balconies). Complimentary Wi-Fi and Internet TVs are standard in every room. Pets are welcome and families are well provided for.

When the weather’s warm, take the rather lavish breakfast or afternoon tea outside at the Olive Grove, overlooking the ocean. There are two restaurants, which both serve lunch and dinner -- the Curry Room at the Governor's is the award-winning option, with two AA Rosettesfor its "smart modish-looking Indian dishes which steer clear of cliché" (The AA Restaurant Guide). Sample delights such as the trio of eggplant with minted yogurt, white fish and calamari curry, and rosewater rice pudding.

Guests have complimentary access to the outdoor pool and on-site Revolution Health Club, which has a gym, relaxation suite, sauna and steam room plus two whirlpools. Spa treatments are also available (extra charge).
