The hotel is located on the sea front 5 minutes walk from the ferry terminal and literally with the town on the door step. I wasn't on holiday, so as a place to stay it was ideal. The room was cozy and clean, I didn't need to swing a cat, just, shower, telly and sleep. I used the bar and... More

Great location. Friendly staff and owner. Clean modern room which looked newly refurbished. Nice bar and lounge area. Lovely breakfast. Home made buns left in room daily. No complaints. Reasonably priced.

I stayed here with my family for 1 night. We all had well equipped, very comfortable rooms (very tempted to take the bed home with me!). The home made cakes and Manx chocolate in the rooms were a lovely touch. All the staff were very friendly. Delicious breakfast. I am hoping to stay there again next year.

It's early December and it's raining outside but at least my room is warm, clean and comfortable. This is my second visit to the Ellan Vannin and I'm pleased to say that their standards have, in my opinion, remained high and their prices moderate. I have enjoyed their breakfasts which are served freshly cooked at table rather than buffet style,... More

Nice enough B&B! as far as the bedroom went! Complimentary breakfast it said! NO.... The price we paid to stay, we most definitely paid for breakfast! Chaos both mornings, no one on hand to greet you or show you to your table! "Quite busy this morning" would you like to sit in the bar have breakfast there? You got to... More

Stayed overnight instead of getting a taxi home to Peel. What a brilliant idea, will certainly stay at the Ellan Vannin again. Beautiful, comfy room plus an excellent breakfast the next morning. The amazing thing is it cost me less that a taxi!! Well done Ellen Vannin😊
