I've stayed in this hotel twice now, both while I was working. My main reason for picking this place was that it was near the airport and I was flying in the night before a meeting and this place is fast and easy. The price is good, the rooms smallish but clean and the bed gave me a solid night... More

I have stayed a few times now and have always received a friendly welcome. The rooms are just what you need as a base-tv, tea/coffee, comfortable large bed and we had a large room. Very quiet despite being close to the airport. The continental breakfast choice-cereal, toast, croissant, coffees, juice, fresh fruit and yoghurt. Nip into lovely Castletown 3 mins... More

Stayed overnight in 11/2014 prior to very early morning flight to London City from IOM. Hotel was nice and lived up to expectations as depicted in prior TripAdvisor reviews. Clean rooms, about a 5min walk away from the airport. Wifi was fast (I'm actually not sure if it's free but needed it regardless so was quite meh about any potential... More

A very well run hotel in a good location for the south of the Island. Whilst the rooms are small everything is nicely presented and well maintained with a very friendly greeting at the desk. Breakfast is a bonus too.

Stayed here overnight and it was exactly what I thought it would be i.e. clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and the buffet style breakfast was more than adequate. To be fair I think that if you are only wanting somewhere ideally situated to the airport then this is the place to stay at. No complaints at all... More

Booked in for an overnight stay prior to early flight and this hotel was perfect for this. The gentleman at reception was warm friendly and very informative. The hotel is clean rooms spacious and quiet .Breakfast was all you could eat and a variety of dishes.To top it all it is just across the road from the airport.

This was a late booking and we didn't really know what to expect. What we got far exceeded our expectations - quiet, well equipped room, really helpful staff and an excellent continental buffet breakfast. We had a car, so travel wasn't an issue,as it's a bit out of Castletown and about 15 mins drive to Douglas. Buses did seem frequent.... More

My wife and I and my grandaughter visited the Sefton Express for the 4th time. We enjoy the informality of the hotel. The location is first class for visiting the Island.

This is a budget hotel in style, but thanks to it's cleanliness, the friendliness of staff, and the hospitality offered it becomes so much more than that.

Thanks for your review, the hotel was limited buy the room size in the fact that this was a converted build not a purpose built hotel.
