We were returning to the IOM after over fifty years and wanted to find a hotel that was relatively small, family run and on the promenade with rooms with a good view. Like most of the Victorian built Hotels on the front at Douglas there are only a few rooms which provide sea views. The buildings tend to stretch back... More

This hotel has expanded over the past two years and as a result the service has been reduced to less than it was two years ago. The staff were first class and the rooms were of a good standard, the only criticism of the expansion was the fact the dining room was not able to cope with the 29 rooms... More

A good value smaller hotel with staff who were always helpful and pleasant. Pleasant rooms, spotlessly clean and right in the middle of Douglas sea front. We enjoyed our stay there and wouldn't hesitate to use it again

Stayed 4 nights in June 2015. The hotel is ideally located on the Promenade. The ferry terminal is an easy flat 5-7 minute walk away. The main Douglas shopping street is directly behind the hotel and runs parallel to the Promenade. There are numerous restaurants in the area, from quick pub style to upmarket dining. My room, while not overly... More

Spent a fabulous two weeks on the Isle of Man at the Ellan Vannin. The staff is incredible and they make you feel comfortable. They are extremely helpful in every way possible. The room I had was absolutely perfect for me. As a single I had plenty of room including a desk and a recliner. Felt very much like home.... More

What can you say about this Hotel, well i cannot praise them enough. On arrival on TT week, the staff were very helpful in finding my friend and I a secure car park behind the hotel, a private electric garage to be precise which relaxed us knowing that our pride and joys were safe from the antics of drunken people...

Short break over 3 nights. Hotel was perfectly located, rooms fine and clean. Good choice of breakfast, freshly cooked. All staff friendly and helpful. Rooms at the back very quiet, as requested, but don't expect a view from them. No concerns and will stay there again if come back to Isle of Man.

I was in a group of six staying over a weekend. The rooms were well appointed as expected for this category of hotel. Beds were comfortable and the showers ran hot at all times (a pet hate of mine if they are lukewarm). Nice touches were the Manx echolocate and the cakes/biscuits in the room as we arrived. Breakfast was... More
