For a 7th visit and as usual everything was perfect. This time we had some evening meals and they were better than we expected, presentation was very good as was the quality of food and the price was reasonable. We recommended the Sefton Express to two friends and they were also very pleased with it. Thankyou to all the staff... More

It's a quite basic airport hotel, but it's perfectly comfortable and goes further from having staff who really care and who will do anything to make your stay feel like home from home. The cooked meals in the evening were a particular pleasant surprise in terms of good quality and preparedness. Nicely done - thanks for the warm welcome.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon and it was everything we expected. The receptionist was nice and welcoming and the hotel is clean and tidy. It's a similar style to a Travelodge, but it's that bit nicer. The room was clean and the bathroom was a good size and looked like it had just been... More

I used the Sefton as my base for a 5-day visit to the Isle of Man to enjoy the Vintage Transport Festival. I found the hotel to be very conveniently located for my purposes. My room was clean and comfortable, with an excellent bathroom and a super bed. The two receptionists, one male and one female, were both very pleasant... More

I stayed 4 nights in the family room and we used the Hotel as our base for exploring the whole island. It was ideal. It is a 3 minute walk from the airport and it is here where you will find the bus stop. There is also a 'request' stop for the Manx Steam Railway which we used without any... More

We stayed here for the Southern 100 road race in July. The location was perfect a 5 minute drive to the circuit. The rooms are clean and the bed huge but this does make it a little tight for space. Shower room and no bath but all clean and functional. No noise from the airport despite its location. Wifi was... More

Hotel of choice for an early departure from Ronaldsway, just a 5 minute walk from the airport terminal but also appears to be a popular budget base for exploring the island. Very warm welcome on each of the times I have stayed here and good information about the local area on offer. There is a nice reception area with food... More
