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.

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
