I went on a business trip and stayed in Ellan Vannin hotel for 2 weeks. Immediately that I booked, the hotel staff communicated with me and I even pre-order my food and it was ready, still hot when I arrived from airport. The reception staff was great as I was welcome to the hotel and staff assisted me to take my luggage to my room. The area was clean. The staff are very friendly and professional. There was a problem with the plumbing of my room and they organized for a plumber immediately and even offer me a bigger room. The food was fantastic, fresh foods and taste was superb.
