We stayed at Ellan Vannin Hotel Aug 2015. The hotel was clean, the food excellent and staff friendly. The twin room on the top floor was a bit of a trek each time. 8 flights of stairs was a tad tiring with no lift but it helped burn off the calories added by the lovely cooked breakfasts. The room itself... More

Overall, this is the best guest house we have ever stayed in. Granted, some people like different things but to us no view is not an issues as on holiday we're never at the accommodation much anyway... This is the only place we've stayed where all the staff were all as welcoming, cheerful and as helpful as each other, nothing... More

Conveniently located in Douglas, close to shops, pubs and restaurants, the Ellan V is a lovely place to stay while in the Isle of Mann. Great breakfast and dinner as well! Wish there was central air in the guest rooms, but the weather made it fine. Lots of stairs...no elevator, but good exercise after all the delicious meals you'll have... More

Stayed on business for one night in July 2015. Had a double room at the very top of the hotel. Pleasant staff and clean, two most important thing for me as a business traveler. Also has personality over and above those awful chains. However, if you have mobility issues, parking and no lift would be a problem. Same for many... More

We have just returned from this hotel and what a pleasurable stay it was. When I booked this hotel I requested a low floor, we walked through the front door, walked up the stairs and there was our room, what more could I ask for! Lovely room, very comfortable, large king size bed with very comfortable duvet and pillows, drinks... More

The on-line communication was excellent and the reviews mostly positive. Staff were really friendly on arrival and throughout. Our room was less than acceptable, however, with peeling wallpaper and signs of damp, and our door card failed twice (down 3 flights of stairs and back up...). The breakfast area was understaffed - no glasses, no spoons, long waits, poor cleanliness... More

Ellen Vannin proved an ideal good value for money base for our 4 night stay following a mercifully calm crossing on the ferry. We were returning to the Isle of Man- after a gap of over 20 years -with my wife’s relatives from LA and wanted somewhere central to stay whilst we whilst we would be out most of the... More
