Top 10 English Seaside Hotels by Adrian Mourby

"Guernsey, with its warm climate, sandy beaches and scenic cliff walks has had a long history of tourism. People also come here to look at the old British fortifications from when we fought Napoleon, and the more recent German fortifications left over from their years of occupation during World War II. These days more than 100 cruise ships a year dock at St Peter Port, bringing an additional 100,000 daytrippers on to this holiday island.

There are many places to stay across the island but OId Government House above St Peter Port is one of the best. This imposing stone structure dates back to 1796 when it was the official residence of the Governor who administered Guernsey, Alderney, Herm and Sark. The last Lieutenant Governor to live in as Government House was General Sir James Douglas who fought with Wellington in the Peninsula War. Since 1858 it has functioned as a hotel. Life was always gracious for visitors to Guernsey right up until 1940 when it was taken over as General Staff Headquarters of the victorious German Army who held the Channel Islands until May 1945. Adolf Hitler was convinced that British pride meant that the Channel Islands would be liberated before any attack was made on France so he poured men and concrete into the island. At one point there was one German soldier for every Guernsey civilian. The massive concrete bunkers never fired a shot in anger however, as the D-Day landings bypassed the Channel Islands entirely.

Today these massive coastal fortifications are worth visiting while staying at OGH (as it is known locally).You should also walk down to the harbour and think about taking a boat to the other islands, each of which have their own distinct charm ."

The Top Ten Resplendent Wedding Venues by Liz Coggins

"With its timeless elegance this is the perfect place for a romantic celebration in sophisticated style. The gilt encrusted ceilings, chandeliers, marble floors, paintings and sumptuous décor reflect the gracious living of a bygone era. The private patio with sweeping views of the sea is a superb place for drinks receptions, photos or to party the night away in."

The Fifteen Best Island Hotels by Greg Cook

"A luxury hotel occupying a Georgian gem of a building in the heart of Guernsey’s main town, St. Peter’s Port. As the name suggests, this grand residence was originally the home of the island’s Governor but has been open to guest as a hotel for the past 150 years. Today OGH, as it’s affectionately know by the locals, has lost nothing of it’s grandeur and old-fashioned style, with sixty-three elegant rooms, and afternoon tea served daily on the terrace over looking the bay – just as the governor would have expected."
