- Social distancing and safety measures in place
- Follows government and industry guidelines for COVID-19
- Signed up to the AA COVID Confident Charter
All staff of The Old Government House Hotel and Spa has attended Covid-19 Awareness training before returning back to work and all staff also completed an online WHO training about respiratory diseases and their transmission. We all fully understand the importance of "Stay at home if unwell" policy as well as "Catch it, bin it, kill it" policy. Even though Guernsey Government lifted most of the restriction, The Old Government House Hotel and Spa kept most of the measures in place, especially when it comes to strict hand and respiratory hygiene as well as regular cleaning of public areas. Our senior management team is fully educated on current situation and we are available to talk to and inform our guests about our procedures in place. Most of our collateral items are back in place, public areas as well as bedrooms which are still currently closed, and we are prepared to clear them immediately based on local government guidelines. When it comes to cushions, extra blankets, bed covers, etc... these will not be in the bedrooms and it will be only provided to our guests upon their request. Should you needed more information about Guernsey Covid-19 restrictions, please let me attach a link to Guernsey Government website with all current Covid-19 updates and details about individual phases of lockdown. https://covid19.gov.gg/guidance/exit Thank you.
Our Inspector's view
Affectionately known as the OGH, this is one of the island's leading hotels. Located in the heart of St Peter Port, it is the perfect base from which to explore Guernsey and the other islands of the Bailiwick. Bedrooms vary in size but all are comfortable and offer high quality accommodation. There is an indulgent health club and spa, and the eating options are The Brasserie, the Olive Grove and the Curry Room.

About the area
Guernsey is far from being a large island – it covers only 25 square miles (65 sq km). But it does have a long and complex history, which has left it independent in most matters from its immediate neighbours; the UK and France. Both French and English are spoken widely here, as is a local French dialect, Guernésiais.
The island itself is mild in winter and warm in summer, making it an attractive place to holiday. As you’d expect it also enjoys a good range of coastal features, including charming bays, family-friendly beaches (sandy and pebbled; 27 in all), walker-friendly cliff paths, and many opportunities for kayaking or surfing. There is an airport, but no railway, and buses are plentiful. Those with cars should be aware though, that the speed limit is 35mph. Saint Peter Port is the capital and covers about 10 per cent of the island. Victor Hugo lived in exile here from 1855 to 1870, and his house is one of the many attractions of the town. Another is Castle Cornet, an impressive defensive complex, parts of which date back 800 years.
