We checked in to a smallish, clean sea view room which was smaller than what we'd expected. The view was nice though. Rooms are not well sound proofed as we could hear the man next door coughing during the night ! If a light sleeper (like me) bring ear plugs. The menu and food in the brasserie was lovely but...

Having stayed here in 2013 I retain my opinion that this is a decent hotel for a British seafront. It is about 10 minutes' walk from the town centre of Douglas on the seafront dominated by hotels and apartments. The same reception staff as a year ago, and travelling with a friend this time I had a twin room which... More

Hotel was very comfortable and clean, with helpful staff and an excellent position on the promenade. We stayed on the week following the motorcycle races and everywhere was quiet. The Island is in a time warp and has hardly changed since my last visit 50 years ago! Most of the seafront hotels appear to be converted to flats, and major... More

Hotel was very good rooms were lovely to a high standard, slept like a log. Bucks Fizz on arrival and evening meal was excellent. Entertainment was very good tribute to Michael Buble performed by Adam Brown. Breakfast was welcomed - only disadvantage was was breakfast finished at 9.45 considering you were up late being New Years Day.

I stayed for 2 nights rooms dated and bathroom very smelly. Food expensive and poor quality. Staff friendly. Would not recommended my family to stay here. Not a cheap hotel but not worth what you are paying.

The title was a suggestion given by a fellow traveller and really sums up this hotel. Wonderful location, beautiful public rooms and good food and service, but the standard bedrooms were very small and dark with no view at all. The first room had the curtains right against the bedside lampshade. The shower attachment was over the bath and in... More

The hotel is well placed on the promenade within easy reach of the town centre one way and the tram terminus. A good looking hotel from the outside and the reception area and lounge is welcoming. We booked a room with a sea view and the view was superb. Whilst the room was large, clean and adequately furnished. However, the... More
