We stayed there for our Silver Wedding anniversary and had a great time. All the staff are very welcoming, and the food is great. Comfortable rooms. The hotel is ideally located on the Island, with good transport links. Highly recommended!

We stayed at the Ellan Vannin Hotel as part of my surprise 50th birthday party. Very welcoming and comfortable too! Room, location and breakfast were great. Would definitely return. Thanks for a wonderful (if far too short) stay.

A group of us stayed here for a few days while in the Isle of Man for a friends wedding. The staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. The breakfast was substantial, with a great choice. The hotel was very centrally located, within walking distance of the steam train, electric tram, promenade, harbour and shopping... More

Hotel staff dealt admirably with difficulties arising from 4 days of persistent food poisoning symptoms following a visit to a harbour front restaurant nearby. Well appointed rooms complete with very large bed. Excellent breakfasts; but go early as it can be busy and rather warm. Issues with malfunctioning kettle and shower room lamp were corrected within minutes of the staff... More

Paul and Pauline were most welcoming and helpful hosts. The seaview is superb and the renowned breakfast lived up to expectations. Room very well appointed with free wi fi and comfortable armchairs from which we enjoyed watching the promenaders. Hotel has a well stocked bar and pleasant lounge.

Travelled from Australia and found this little gem. Excellent position for everything. Clean rooms great breakfast. What more can I add except there's no lift so be prepared for a workout each day. Apart from that - no worries - can recommend this place to any traveller to Douglas. Cheers

Just returned from a very pleasant stay at the Ellan Vannin the hotel enjoys a superb location right on the sea front and in the centre of Douglas. The hotel offers good value for money and the staff are friendly and profession. The breakfast was really good with an excellent choice. Our room was on the small side but taking... More

Great hotel with very pleasant staff. After a very stressful and rough ferry crossing we had a friendly face to greet us at 00:30 in the morning. There was even a phone call to ensure that we had made it onto the ferry. These things make a difference.

I stay in Douglas twice a month for work purpose. I have stayed in The Ellan Vannin three times and it is every bit as good as its reviews. Excellent tasty breakfasts and clean well appointed rooms. Book well ahead though or you may find yourself disappointed as they are mainly fully booked. Keep up the good work Ellan Vannin... More
