The Old Government House Hotel & Spa
The only five-star hotel on Guernsey, our historic property with panoramic sea views sits proudly on the hill in the heart of St Peter Port, with harbour views across the islands & beyond
Throw open your windows and breathe deep: the sea air here is pure and sweet, and the views out over St Peter Port, the harbour, across the water to the islands beyond, are the most breathtaking on the island. And yet we are right in the heart of St Peter Port, just a short stroll from the centre, making it the perfect location in this charming seaside town.
The only five-star hotel on the island, the historic Old Government House sits proudly just up the hill from the main shopping street and a five-minute walk from the quayside. Exceeding expectations with exceptional food, service and beautifully-designed rooms, a dedicated team treats every guest as a friend returning home, with passionate pride for fine traditional hospitality.
Each individually-designed room is filled with creativity and comfort, with striking artworks, sumptuous fabric-covered walls and antiques personally chosen by our founder Beatrice Tollman, and her daughter Toni.
At The Old Government House, we are proud to offer a collection of extraordinary experiences, exclusively curated with our treasured local partners, that explore our spectacular surroundings and showcase our food and drink partners.
The second-largest island in the Channel Islands, Guernsey has gone to great lengths to change its sleepy backwater image, and it's working. Flatter and less dramatic-looking than Jersey, Guernsey has some stunning beaches, particularly along the north coast, rugged cliffs in the south, and a lively, compact capital of St Peter Port.
There's more to Guernsey than offshore banking and cream teas: there are Neolithic graves, Victorian forts and German fortifications to explore, adventure sports such as coasteering and rock climbing are on the rise, the north coast is excellent for watersports, and St Peter Port lures visitors in with its great dining scene.
Guernsey has one of the largest tidal ranges - Guernsey’s tidal range of 33 feet is one of the largest in the world, transforming the coastline every six hours or so. High tides are perfect for swimming, and children love to explore the rock pools at low tide.
Castle Cornet, Standing sentinel over Saint Peter Port for over 800 years, this wonderfully intact castle has been a major player in every historical event to affect the island, from the French sieges and the Napoleonic wars to the Civil War and WWII.

HOW ARE WE WORKING TO KEEP YOU SAFE?
Taking care of you is what Grantley Hall is here for….. The health and well-being of guests and colleagues has always been at the forefront of decision making and, quite rightly, led to the closure of the hotel on Sunday 22nd March, less than a year after it had opened our doors for the very first time.
The Hotel are obviously monitoring government guidelines and advice very closely and will react accordingly should it be necessary.
There will be some changes to the way in which they operate in order to provide both you, the guests, and ther team members, with the confidence that they are doing everything they can to keep you safe and well during a visit to the hotel, to implement social distancing measures as far as possible and to highlight the additional cleansing, health and safety and protocols that they are putting in place for as long as required – whilst still providing the warm, friendly, five star service that is at the heart of their personality.
The list of new protocols being implemented across the hotel and restaurants is extensive. This is a living document which will continue to evolve and be updated to reflect ongoing government and medical advice, client feedback and industry best practice. We are all entering a new landscape in luxury travel and service and Grantley Hall are committed to going above and beyond for each and every one of our guests.
Protocols include, but are not limited to:
• Enhanced Cleanliness & Sanitisation
• Guest Bedroom Sanitisation
• Social Distancing
• Bars & Restaurants
• Spa & Wellness
• Team Safety
