Perfect location on Douglas Promenade (although check with the hotel in advance about parking). Wonderful venue for a 40th birthday party for about 60 guests, with big band! Excellent buffet and breakfast. Friendly staff. Room on the small side but very comfortable. We plan to book a staycation there again soon!

I had my works Christmas party here so I thought it would be the best idea to book a room and it was definitely the right decision. The staff upon arrival and through the event were very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the breakfast the following morning was a lovely fry up. Would definitely book again in the future!
