The Old Government House hotel and spa (OGH) has become Guernsey's first-ever five-star hotel.
The hotel was awarded the rating by the Department of Commerce and Employment in Guernsey (which has responsibility for tourism marketing and development on the island), following a recent quality rating assessment.
Jonathan Raggett, managing director of Red Carnation Hotel Collection, which runs the hotel, said: "I am delighted that the Old Government House hotel has been awarded the Island's first-ever five-star hotel rating, and am particularly proud of all the staff who endeavour to provide guests with the highest standards of service and make every guest feel at home. Every one of our 13 properties operates on the principle that no request is too large, no detail too small."
Andrew Chantrell, general manager of the OGH, added: "This recognition is the culmination of the hard work of not only the whole team at the hotel but also that of our president and founder Mrs Beatrice Tollman. She is steadfast in her commitment to the guest experience, and has invested heavily in refurbishment across the hotel to help us achieve the standards befitting Guernsey's first five-star property. We'd also like to thank Guernsey's Department for Commerce and Employment for their continued support."
