Located near to Ronaldsway airport on a small business park. What appears to be a former office/ light industrial unit with a community care home appearance and feel to it! The colour scheme is an unattractive green and inside there is acres of green paint. Walk through the entrance and you are greeted by soft furnishings which are tired, do... More

Only stayed one night and this was due to a cancelled flight, thank you flybe, the hotel is basic but faultlessly clean, the room was adequate, breakfast is a continental affair, with tea and coffee from a vending machine. The location is pretty remote from anywhere apart from the airport. The nearest pub is about 6 minutes in a taxi.... More

My wife and I stayed at the hotel last night as it was just a 5 minutes walk jaway from the terminal and we had an early flight to catch. The hotel was fairly basic, with us being allocated a smallish room, but that didn't detract at all from our night's stay. The room had a large, comfortable bed and... More

Very conveniently located for the airport. The rooms are small but very comfortable and for an airport hotel room, perfectly adequate for a flying visit. The reception staff are very friendly and welcoming.

Looks a bit like a travelodge but much much better than that. Rooms small but comfortable. Breakfast simple but good. They serve an evening meal but plenty of good places to eat within walking distance. Very friendly and helpful staff. A place to go back to.

Here are the good and bad points :- Good points - hotel is opposite the airport and you can walk to it so handy for flights - there is a great bus service that goes from the hotel to all over the island and it is very reasonable. A day pass is £7 and if you want to pay £16... More

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.
