Check in was easy, the room allocation was incorrect, noted by the receptionist but sorted immediately. He was helpful, friendly and efficient. The room was a great size with all amenities the down side carpet stained bathroom needed some tlc. The hotel has two bars, Jar bar is noisy in a cellar not to our taste. The bar off reception...

Superbly located within a 5 minute walk from the sea terminal and with stunning views over the bay, the Admiral House is perfectly situated for exploring Douglas. Bedrooms are large and bathrooms spacious. We had a room towards the back with no view (as such) but that was fine. If you are staying for a few days, it would be... More

Douglas is not a very large city and the Admiral House as a great location in the sense that it is about 10 minutes walk away from the ferry pier (which is how most people probably come to the Isle of Man) and right next to the main shopping street with shops that help to serve everyday needs (e.g., Marks...

Rooms good size, massive bathroom, very clean and tidy. The position of the hotel is excellent for doing business in Douglas, everything within walking distance. The down side is the closing time of the bar in the evening which is not very good as way too early. Have stayed here about 5 or 6 times and always go back

In 25+ years of extensive business travel this has been the single worst hotel experience I have ever had. I booked a 2-night stay from 31st March – 2nd April. On the morning of 1st April there was no hot water in the room. I called reception at around 0800 to report the problem and was told that “the manager... More

The hotel is very easy to spot on the seafront. In easy walking distance from the ferry port. Car parking is a bit of a work-up. While it is free overnight and Sundays, to park on the street outside the hotel, it is limited to two hours during the day when displaying a timed disc available from the hotel. However,... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. Stunning room with fantastic views over the beaches and harbour. Breakfast leaves nothing to be desired. Really can wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. Great base to explore Douglas and the island from

We had a short break at this hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. We stayed in room 401 which was a large room with a four poster bed. Being a corner room, there was a small raised area in the corner which gave us views out over the sea and back to the port area. Wonderful place to sit and have... More

I was told in reply to my last review, that I was not a "seasoned traveller" as I had only ever written 1 review. The person who responded was in fact the manager of the hotel which I had reviewed. I was told that I only saw the bad and not the good things in his/her hotel. I will not... More

I have just stayed at this hotel with my two young sons. I booked a family room for what I considered to be a very reasonable price considering it also included breakfast for three (separately this breakfast is expensive). I was aware that most of the Douglas seafront hotels ( and there are tons) are more of what I would... More
