Excellent location. Walking distance from the ferry terminal or a short taxi ride from the Airport. Literally a minutes stroll to the town center and quay. We stayed for 3 nights for my wife's surprise 50th Birthday trip as she had never been to the Isle of Man. The staff were lovely, very friendly with a sincere smile to greet... More

Internet booking and reception on arrival very good, with advance email to check on my arrival and departure flights. Having booked a single room, I was not expecting much, as these are usually small and not very good. However, I was extremely surprised to find a reasonable sized room, with decor and furniture in very good condition. Nice clean, modern... More

Booked two rooms, one with sea view at higher price. Booking and pre arrival communications very good. On arrival sea view room not available so free drinks at the bar. Allocated room quite small. Good selection for breakfast and helpful staff. Moved to sea view room after two days which was apparently available from arrival date. Good location direct on... More

An excellent base within easy walking distance from the ferry port and all public transport, buses trains and trams, for those who have left their car behind. We stayed for a week and had a lovely sea view room from which we could see the entire 2 mile promenade of Douglas. The room was clean and well maitained. The breakfasts... More
