Heritage is a big part of Channel Island life, and Guernsey has many stories to tell.
Discover them in comfort and luxury by staying at The Old Government House, in the heart of the capital, St Peter Port.
Once the official residence of the Governor of Guernsey, the OGH (as it is affectionately known) is a tasteful blend of both old and new.
Attention to detail is evident throughout and the level of service offered is second to none, which is what you would expect as part of the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, whose portfolio also includes the 2015 Hotel of the Year.
The hotel has 63 rooms, and we recommend the classic double rooms for a short stay. Rooms come with satellite television, telephone, tea & coffee making facilities, air-conditioning, wifi and 24-hour room service.
The hotel's dining spaces include The Brasserie, The Curry Room serving authentic Indian cuisine, and The Crown Club. All are hotspots for guests and locals alike.
The OGH is the perfect base as you explore Guernsey. The island’s coast is its greatest draw and with over 28 miles of spectacular cliff top paths and rural lanes, the best way to appreciate it is on foot at your own pace.
St Peter Port, with its quaint cobbled streets, Regency architecture and picturesque seafront marina, is considered one of Europe’s prettiest harbour towns. Along with shops, boutiques and bustling markets you’ll also find Castle Cornet which has stood guard over the town for 800 years, beautiful Candie Gardens and Hauteville House, the former home of French writer Victor Hugo.
The south and east is cliff fringed with meandering coastal paths leading through pine forests and past rocky coves to reveal stunning views of dramatic cliffs and headlands; while the north and west coast is flatter with miles of sweeping sandy bays or wide open beaches.
Inland the Ruettes Tranquilles are narrow, winding lanes which take you off the beaten track through the countryside where high hedges of wild flowers front traditional Guernsey cottages.
There is an abundance of amazing local produce grown and reared on the island and gathered from the surrounding waters. Whether it’s fish and chips with your toes in the sand, an indulgent afternoon tea, good value pub-grub or blow the budget dinner, Guernsey prides itself on the variety of restaurants, cafes and kiosks to choose from.
