Just arrived back from a week at this hotel on a Just Go Holidays coach trip, the staff were all friendly and welcoming, were very eager to please, the food is excellent and well presented and was served by hard working happy waiters/waitresses. we would gladly recommend this hotel and would return again.

I reviewed this hotel a few years back and find it still has a special place in my heart, It is not perfect- I spotted some little bits of dirt with my "Alex Polizzi Hotel Inspector" head on. But I love its charm and friendly staff. The original features are lovely but even the bar and lift are all old... More

What a lovely hotel; not posh but clean and friendly with excellent service. Nothing was too much for the staff and any requests were taken care of immediately. We travelled with a coach party and despite the numbers to be catered for did not have to wait to be served. I would recommend anyone to stay here and will definitely... More

We really enjoyed staying here. Great for walking the dog along the beach / prom. Easy to get to the tram / ferry /town. Plenty of parking on the front. The dog was welcome in the bar. Manx kippers for breakfast. Lovely friendly staff. Will return!

We stayed at the Hydro as part of a stag weekend. Room rates were £80 per room per night - bed and breakfast. The location, right on the seafront, towards the north of the prom, is very pleasant. It is, however, a bit of a walk to the centre of town - maybe 15, 20 minutes. The room I had... More

An older hotel that has been well maintain over the years. Positioned on the sea front with fine views of the sea and coast. Walking distance to town center. rooms are large and quiet; Menu is good and breakfasts are excellent, especially the Manx kippers. Restaurant staff are super.

This Hotel has a friendly atmosphere and has a variety of rooms with different facilities ie bath, walk in shower. Unless you are interested in motorcycling it is best to avoid the TT and Manx racing periods. The Island has many beautiful and interesting places to visit.
