We were only on the Isle of man one night, but two full days. The hotel was clean, quaint and right on the water. Every hotel on the boardwalk faced the water. We were able to catch the Horse Trolley right out the front door. All the shopping was on main street right behind the hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay here it is in a great seafront location a short walk from the ferry and close enough to shops pubs and restaurants in the town. The breakfasts were superb [try the kippers!] and we found all the staff helpful and friendly. Our seaview room was clean and comfortable with loads of room and lovely bathroom.... More

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is very near to ferry and plenty of restaurants. My room was small but comfortable and clean. The free Wi-Fi is very fast and reliable. Breakfast was good. Only criticism is that the place could do with a little redecoration in places but that didn't mar my stay at all.

'Reception' is disappointing as the whole arrival area makes a poor first impression and could be a lot better. Our suite was fine but our friends' room was small and required maintenance on several counts. The cooked breakfast was excellent but the choice of 'continental' was very poor in our opinion. The lounge and bar area are in the process... More

My friend booked a twin bedded room by telephone. On our arrival we were taken along a dreary corriidor to our room where we were extremely disappointed. It was small - we thought very small - and we had no moving about space , even to open our siutcase - which we left unopened on the floor. After travelling by... More

The staff issue a list of useful information about your stay prior to your arrival date, a really worthwhile list. Plenty of busses from the airport to your hotel, it's bus stop "Loch Promanade 2 or 3” our driver stopped directly outside the hotel. On arrival a pleasant greeting and local information if required. The room was comfortable, clean, shower... More

The Ellan Vannin is close to the sea, bus and stream train terminals and is only a short bus ride from the electric railway allowing easy access to most places of interest. From the initial acknowledgement of our booking to when we checked out the management and staff could not have been more helpful. The homemade cakes and biscuits with... More
