The power of passionDiscover the world of Red Carnation
Cairngorms, Highlands Scotland
We are inspired by our beautiful surroundings, deep in the Scottish Highlands. Each of our bedrooms showcase panoramic views of the spectacular landscape, while the verdant countryside is home to a wide variety of wildlife, from Golden Eagle and Osprey to Red Deer Stag and Pine Martin, as well as an abundance of wild flowers, plants and trees.
The imposing St Peter Port building began life as a home for local merchant, Nicolas Le Mesurier, who built his residence in the early 1700s in a scenic spot overlooking the harbour.
Prior to becoming a hotel in 1858, The Old Government House was the official Governor’s residence for the island and the Bailiwick. During World War Two, the property was occupied by Germany and became their General Staff Headquarters.
Led by General Manager Andrew Chantrell, we are the only five-star hotel in Guernsey and a proud part of the family-owned and run Red Carnation Hotel Collection.
