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. My grandaughter particularly enjoys the breakfast, a nice selection of croissant, meats and cheese, which is a great start to the day. My only complaint was having to pay... More

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. A small selection of prepared evening meals are available, but the hotel is happy to let you order in a takeaway ( and even provides menus of 3 local takeaways that deliver- two... More

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. Even though a very small charge for WiFi, It is still a lot cheaper than other budget hotel that i could mention and is a one off fee for the length of your stay... More

No gracious views of the beautiful IOM but if you only have a few days and want hassle free parking and easy access around the Island this is worth consideration. Fairly plain continetal breakfast but decent coffee. Let yourself in after 10.30pm so do not forget your key! Excellent value, clean rooms and decent showers.

We booked at short notice for a week. Staff very welcoming and nothing too much trouble. Room clean and had all one needs for duration. Buffet breakfast excellent. Ample car parking.

We stay here each year. Very pleasant and helpfully staff. Rooms are compact but have all the facilities you need. Place is kept very clean. Nice quiet location but easy access to Douglas, Peel or South of the island. Ticks all the boxes.

Once again, I stayed at this hotel after flying to the IOM for a motorcycle race event. Its so handy ( mins walk) to the airport check-in and the bus stops from the airport are four an hour - travelling both North and South. The staff remain friendly and helpful and it still 'ticks many boxes' for me.

This is like a premier inn but the rooms are a bit smaller, the staff are excellent and for the Island the price is very reasonable. You could walk from the airport if you didn't have much luggage but I wouldn't want to do it in bad weather. The inclusive continental breakfast is very simple but adequate and there is... More

Thank you for your comments, we know we are limited with TV channels, it is something that i am looking into at the moment, but it is a large expensive to change all of the TV's. I am glad that this doesn't put you off and we look forward to meeting you again the very near future. Once again thanks... More

After booking flights for the last day of TT racing (Friday) last year I then discovered that accommodation is in very short supply because I only wanted an overnight stay. Ciaran was my knight in shining armour and found me a room rather than sleeping in the car (never even camped before so the thought filled me with horror!). The... More
