The breakfast every morning was served complementary ,there was a menu to chose between three... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in September. We actually had a room in the Rosslyn section of the building, which is a couple of doors down. I visited with my mother as a treat for her 70th birthday, and with hindsight I wish I'd booked a ground floor room because it was quite a climb up several fights of stairs... More

This is a typical seaside town guest house/hotel. The Rooms comfy and clean. Decent restaurant, nice atmosphere in the bar and super cooked breakfast. Very friendly and hospitable staff and good value. It's only a short walk to the promenade. A nice place!

Nice hotel, friendly staff, clean rooms and food for breakfast (pancakes) and dinner was nice. Just off the promenade within walking distance from centre, quiet street. Few minutes from electric railway station. Room (6) as spacious and clean, bathroom was wheelchair accessible. It had partial view to the sea. Wifi is free and there was few TV channels.

Enjoyed another short break to the Island, with the comforts of the Mereside to head back to each day. Friendly and helpful staff make this a must on each visit. Clean and comfortable and the breakfasts can be wonderful.

Clean, comfortable room. Friendly staff. Reasonably priced. Good evening meals if you want to eat in. We had a four night stay and found that the Mereside suited our needs. My only grumbles would be that the hot food for the buffet-style breakfast should be replenished more often with less food, fried eggs got a little hard etc. Also, the... More

Stayed just the one night at this hotel but was very pleased. Lovely room, very pleasant staff especially young Aaron. Best breakfast I've ever had in a hotel. You could have had salmon at breakfast! Would definitely recommend this hotel & stay there again if we went to Isle of Man. Central position for all trips.

Booked a double sea view room in The Mereside, ended up 2 hotels along looking over into someone's else's room so unable to open the curtains. Staff are friendly, which, thank goodness they are, as it is the only positive. parking is on the road and congested. Thoroughly over priced. Food worse than a service station.

Stayed post TT as we were unable to get a ferry home straight away. Excellent location, one block back from the promenade, 20min walk to Douglas town centre and steam railway, 15min walk to electric tram. Stayed in room 8, good size twin room with pull out sofa bed and sea views. Small bar / restaurant serving excellent buffet breakfast... More
