Stayed at the Ellan Vannin for 3 nights in their South suite ,Which had an outstanding view of the bay. Home made cakes awaited us in our room every morning, and nothing was too much trouble for any of the members of staff. Breakfast was delicious and as vegetarians we were very well catered for.. The room was spacious and... More

We had a top floor suite with sofa and armchair overlooking the seafront and harbour which was perfect for me because I wasn't looking for nightlife so to sit and watch boats coming and going in the evening was very relaxing. The receptionist was very friendly and welcoming. We left our bags here first thing in the morning and the... More

Stayed for a single night. Douglas as an area is dead. Full of hotels, corporate business and thats about it. The hotel is 'well' situated in this. Easy to find, though while parking is available outside it is limited to 2hrs & no return. Their private car park is in a very poor condition and costs £8.50. Despite not being... More

We were very disappointed with our room at the price we paid. I suggest the room which we had at the back of the hotel with a view over flat roofs and hotel drain pipes was not the norm for this hotel. Room very small, windows filthy, screws sticking up though carpet strip between room and bathroom. Table lampshade broken,... More

Have often thought about visiting the Isle of Man due to watching the TT races. We visited for a long weekend at the start of May. We chose the Ellan Vannin due to its seafront location in Douglas. Our room was at the back of the hotel and, whilst the bed and bathroom was clean, the bedroom's décor was in... More

We stayed here so 25 of us could attend a family christening. Our room was small & needed a freshen up but it was spotless. The bed & bedding comfortable & clean. Tea coffee facilities. Cake & biscuit a nice touch. The hospitality of the staff made this hotel. Would definitely stay again. They catered for all age groups. Thank... More
