Clean and tidy , good value friendly staff. The hotel is at the far end of the promenade but the bus stops outside so it's easy to get to and from the airport for around £3. For TT it's handy as you can walk up the lane at the side and your at the start finish

I had rebooked a gluten free meal for my husband, and checked on arrival that they had received the request, but it took 2 days for them to follow it up as he didn't want to complain. However after this hitch he was satisfied with the meals. The room was comfortable with a partial sea view which we were delighted... More

Our first visit to the island was very pleasant except for the accomdation. This very outdated hotel leaves a lot to be desired. We had a lovely sea view when we could see through the condensation, wallpaper was hanging off, TV was by the window and impossible to watch. The wardrobe was a series of rails and shelves six foot... More

The hotel is in a lovely position on the seafront. However a bit smelly on a night with all the seaweed. Room was lovely. The meal tomes were a bit chaotic has there didn't seem to be enough staff - some staff were a bit rude. Later in the week more staff arrived which made meal times better. Would have... More

I stayed here for a few days in the early part of Practice Week for the TT. This dog friendly hotel comes across as more of a large Guest House rather than an hotel, which has it's charms. Many of the rooms have sea views towards Onchan and being on the prom it's noisy in spite of the double glazing,... More

The Hotel is in a very convienient for the Grandstand area it is a 15 minute walk, it is in an ideal position to get around the Island on the Bus and Train Network, a Bus stops just outside the Hotel in Both Directions. The Room and Bathroom was fine, clean... More

As other reviewers have said, the hotel is a bit "tired". Bedroom was OK and bathroom clean, but seating in lounge really needs throwing on the tip. Breakfast was good but service tended to be a bit variable. We paid a massive premium for these dates which really made it seem poor value.

I stayed as a single traveller in a coach party. My room, a 'double' was fine for me, but would be very cosy for a couple. The only large item was the TV. The room was cleaned efficiently, daily, as was the en-suite. Food was abundant and the menu varied -different choices every night - and the breakfasts were served... More
