We stopped here for one night before travelling to the north of the island as it was close to the airport. Friendly staff and clean rooms, however dining was limited but they were happy for us to bring back a Chinese take away and even provided the plates and cutlery. Breakfast is a basic continental, and I mean basic. Overall... More

Having read some of the reviews on a different website, I was a bit worried about this hotel but the proximity to the airport made it a brilliant choice. I had a nice experience. Staff (Hannah) was pleasant. The room (No.12) I got had a giant and comfortable bed, big windows (a must as there is no air-conditioning!) and the... More

Hotel is small, hot and not much to it. Staff are pleasant. The whole place needs updating as it is a 1980s time trap. Free wifi would improve the place. Room not the cleanest I have ever stayed in and breakfast is to be avoided!

This hotel was booked for me by my office, company policy gives us a Premier Inn or the cost of one to spend elsewhere. The Sefton Express is located right next to Ronaldsway Airport, flights are noisy but few and there are none between around 22:00 and 07:00ish so shouldn't affect your sleep too much. The building itself is an... More

I was initially let down when I called & found out they had discontinued their shuttle service from the airport & hadn't been operating this for some time. But alas, I brushed it off as it was only a 3min walk to the hotel from the Airport! I arrived quite early (9am) & check in wasn't until 330pm. I inquired... More

This small hotel is ideally situated a few minutes walk from the airport, being a small airport noise is not an issue. Facilities are fairly basic, the rooms are comfortable and the reception was excellent and very helpful, A good base and access to public transport also plenty of car parking, Castletown is a few minutes away on the bus.

I am sorry you didnt enjoy your stay, We only work with 1 person normally on shift so if we get a cancelled flight this can cause delays with the food as everybody usually orders very close to each other plus check in other guest, answering phone calls, drinks from the bar etc. More

This hotel is ideally placed right by the airport. It is small but comfortable and the staff are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are on the small side but then who spends much time in a hotel room when you are visiting such a fascinating island and in such fabulous company? Breakfast was continental...ish.
