Stayed here as part of a coach holiday. The food was very very good with 3 choices for each course. The service is excellent and all the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble

Not too bad for the price , basic and in need of some TLC , the first room we were given was very noisy as it was located at the back of the hotel near the kitchen but when we complained we were moved to a better room at the front with a sea view , a bit of hassle... More

The Hydro is not the most modern of hotels. It is obviously used to quite an extent by visiting coach groups (but not during the TT races, when prices all over the island rocket!) Nevertheless it is a clean, welcoming hotel with friendly staff. Meals on a half board basis are certainly adequate if not hugely exciting, with a buffet... More

Stayed here because it was the only one I could find at a sensible price that took dogs and convenient for early ferry in the morning. I had a single room - although it overlooked the wheelie bins, I found it clean, warm with everything I needed. Breakfast good - wish I could have taken my time over it but... More

Spent almost a week in this hotel as a family of 4 adults. The room was quite clean and every day it was restocked with a generous amount of essentials. Even with a double bed and two singles, there was plenty of room so we weren't squashed in. A varied breakfast selection was provided which was delicious. The hotel was... More

Bathroom wasn't clean enough and had stains on floor and shower unit had dated 'black' dampness throughout. I ate in the bar on my 1st night and food was good and reasonable... More

Stayed in room 202, a lovely, comfortable room with a sea view. The staff were brilliant, from catering to cleaning, with an excellent three course menu, served by very friendly and cheerful waiters. Bedding and towels were checked daily, and renewed as required. The hotel is situated on the promenade, with easy access to the beach and one or two... More

The Hydro Hotel was a great choice again for our trip to the Isle of Man and the TT races, its the 2nd time we've stayed at the hotel, located down the far end of the promenade, great views, easy parking and only a short walk from the Queens Pub and various restaurants, if we were going down the other...
