“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2008

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in April. As it was only 3* we decided to book one of the better rooms - an executive room with a sea view - and we weren't disappointed. Our room was very spacious and had recently been re-decorated. It had 2 huge bay windows from which we could see the whole of Douglas bay. The sofa was also perfectly positioned to sit and watch the world go by whilst enjoying a complementary mug of tea/coffee and biscuits.
The breakfast room was bright and airy, again with sea views. The selection of hot and cold food was good and staff were friendly. We didn't eat there in the evening as the entertainment (keyboard player/singer) was aimed at an older clientele. We did have an enjoyable meal in the trendier basement bar/restaurant though.
There's a large pub next door which regularly has live music - we saw a great local rock band while we were there. We also ate downstairs in the pub restaurant, the food was delicious.
The hotel is perfectly situated on the promenade and it's easy to get around the island by bus, electric tram and steam train - we used all 3!

Booked this hotel as a 2 star hotel and was amazed, we had a sea view room which was huge, very clean with crisp white bedding and a clean bathroom with a power shower and large corner bath.the hotel staff were very accomodating and placed our valubles in the hotel safe on request.
The bar and restaraunt which is in the basement of the hotel is lovley, and the food is out of this world, staff are very helpful and has door staff after 9pm as there is a lively and fun atmosphere.
the breakfast room has sea views and is clean and spacious with an excellent choice of english breakfasts and cereals, the chef and all the staff including the night manager were wonderful and i am planning to return shortly with my family.

Our stay at the hotel booked as a packaged with GrandUK holidays .Was awful the room was dismal and out side of the window was a large extractor fan which erupted at 7-00am and nearly shot us out of bed .Meal times where chaotic with large numbers of people falling over one another to get luke warm food off a unkept counter.The entertainment left a lot to be desired .Access to the rooms via the lifts which only carried two people at a time made it very difficult to get too and from your room expecially for the ederly people on our coach. All in all very disappointing
