The title of my review says it all really. We stayed for two nights and booked a sea view room. There were two large windows in the room giving an excellent view, there were also two comfy chairs by the window to sit and enjoy looking out. The room itself was larger than I expected and the bathroom was certainly... More

I was born on the IOM. My parents met in The Sefton. My parents both worked in the 60s, 70s & 80s in The Sefton. Since their deaths we always stayed here as a memory to them & i get shareholder discount. Never again. On the first breakfast, last thurs, we sat next to a table of three, both men... More

I paid the tour Company using the hotel extra for a premium room overlooking the sea. It was large, clean and well furnished, plus overlooked the sea front esplanade. No aircon but they did provide a fan. Reception staff were helpful throughout my 5 days. The hotel bar was a bit of a let down as had been taken over... More

my wife and i stayed 10 days, which provided a good opportunity for an in-depth review. what we liked most were the parking availability, convenience of the location, the buffet breakfast, the fitness room equipment, the helpful staff, and the bathroom shower pressure. conversely, if management could tighten up on little things, th hotel would be an even more attractive...

Stayed here for a conference and felt like a queen. The detail of luxury from the bed linen to the tea pot was elegant & classy. The room overlooked the garden courtyard with a whimsical private balcony. The breakfast was good and the staff extremely helpful. The only downside was the limited parking out back.

We were given what was explained to be a suite before the refurbishment, room 112. On entering we thought how lovely, a large room with both dining table, 2 seating areas and a gorgeous view overlooking the front of the hotel with the promenade, horse trams etc. On closer inspection the room was not just very dated but very dirty....

A bit late but wanted to say how fantastic our stay was in the William Hillary suite at the Sefton hotel. The suite itself was incredible. Massive lounge with kitchenette, huge king size bedroom and a bathroom with all the latest mod cons, including a TV in the wall next to the jacuzzi bath. The Sefton also provided the food... More

The charm of this old hotel is evident as soon as you arrive and look up at it on the street! Walk thru the front doors and you are welcomed by friendly front desk staff! They are there to help make your entire stay the best it could be. I stayed for 5 nights and was very pleased with everything.... More

The Sefton is supposedly one of the better hotels in town. Our check-in was a little chaotic and slow because we were queuing behind a wedding group and some of them seemed to have wrongly booked – it took three people looking at the same computer terminal to resolve the issue. It was only when we were in our room... More
