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

Stayed during the busy TT Race week. A very friendly place. Staff were amazing and very helpful. Food was superb and plentiful. Room was bit small but very comfortable. Overall would stay here again as it was informal, friendly and clean. Location in the middle of the promenade equal distance from either side of the promenade made it ideal.

Came to Douglas for business and managed to enjoy the trip due to the good food and friendly feeling of the hotel. Breakfast included Manx Kippers and dinner Queenie Scallops in cream sauce. I recommend both of these local delicacies. I stayed in the sister to the HQ restaurant, the Mereside and the water heating wasn't up to the demand... More

Having stayed at a few 4-5 star hotels this year we werent expecting too much from a guest house but were pleasantly surprised. The room and facilites were very good. The staff (and regulars) were extremely friendly and helpful. We went out of season so it was quiet but I am confident the staff are as attentive all year round.... More

Another great stay played hunt the SMURFS but failed miserably. Everyone very friendly and meals are amazing. Close to the promenade if you want a nice walk and a 5 minute stroll to the cinema if you fancy something different than standing in a bar.

I have stayed in a few hotels on the island with work, this is a hidden gem! It has the feel / standards of a top hotel. I have stayed a few times before on business, but this year I used the Mereside as a base for a holiday with the family. Lets start with the room, high standards of... More
