I stayed here for one night on business, whilst on the Isle of Man and the weather was horrendous. However after getting to the main reception/bar area you wouldn't have know, literally in this case a very warm welcome! The rooms are fairly basic but comfortable, I had a double bed and took all the pillows, which still seemed low.... More

My second trip to this hotel - and I'm so glad I went back. The atmosphere is really relaxed, and all the staff are helpful and courteous. There's live piano music there every night to add a touch of sophistication! Special mention must go to Lukasz behind the bar who runs the place with a high degree of professionalism and... More

I stayed in this hotel a few weeks ago and had a few problems which turned out to be due to a trainee who hadn't quite got the hang of customer service! On my return today, I have to say that they could not have done more to make amends. For a start, they had obviously made a note that... More

This was our first time staying in the Empress Hotel and we were well impressed. The reception area is welcoming, spacious and very clean. Our room was clean, comfortable and well serviced on a daily basis. I am not a fan of a buffet type breakfast but I have to say the buffet breakfast here was outstanding. All the food... More

Recently returned from another visit to the Empress and were not disappointed as it was as good as ever. Despite being busy, the Rooms, Food and Service were of their usual high standard, particularly the Bar which is run by Lukasz who is the star and main face of the hotel. Special thanks to him and well done to all... More

Having enjoyed many happy family holidays as a child at the Isle of Man, it was time to return to reflect on those wonderful memories - was I disappointed - certainly not! Choosing the Empress Hotel with its central location on the seafront in the heart of Douglas convenient to the port, shops, theatres and cinemas not forgetting the prestigious... More

We have just returned from the Isle of Man and stayed at the Empress Hotel which was first class in every way. We had a beautiful room overlooking the bay and fantastic weather. One draw back was the fact next door to the Empress Hotel is a late night take away (closing approx. 4am in the morning) youths who had... More

The hotel enjoys a superb location midway along the Douglas promenade. A smart exterior is complemented by well presented open plan lounge and dining areas. A pianist plays soft background music, though the occasional replacement artiste was rather over enthusiastic one evening. The presentation and quality of food at dinner varied, with the traditional roast beef being the most disappointing.... More
