“Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2010

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the Mereside. The owners were on holiday but the manager and the other members of staff were very welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived.
We stayed in room number 8, which was a large and spacious room which was situated on the second floor at the front of the hotel with 2 large windows, with a partial sea view. The room was very clean, modern and comfy.
My 2 children slept on the sofa bed which was made up on arrival.
Towels and toiletries were layed out on the bed when we got there and tea, coffee, hot choc, horlicks sachets and biscuits were in the room also, the basket was filled on a daily basis.
The beds and room was also made up and cleaned on a daily basis, and if we wanted clean towels we just left the used towels in the bath and they were changed.
One downside of the room was it was very hot at night and could do with a fan, but it wasnt to much of a problem as the windows were big enough to let a breeze in as long as it wasnt raining.
Breakfast was excellant, with a choice of a full breakfast, manx kippers or pancakes and toast. You could also help yourself to a choice of cereal, coffee, fresh fruit, yogurts and fresh juice. Kids loved the pancakes, which they got plenty of.
We didnt have time to eat at the Hotel at night as we were always out and about but the prices seemed reasonable and they also had a small selection of childrens meals.
When we return to the Isle of man we will be looking into booking this Hotel for our next visit.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2010

On a positive note, the breakfast was excellent as was dinner and rooms relatively clean. However, we stayed for six nights and sheets and towels were not changed once. On several occasions the tea/coffee basket was not replenished, which we had to chase. Information in the room said that early continental breakfast could be arranged and we were offered cheese and pickle sandwiches! Breakfast is 8 - 9 a.m. only, this even for travellers catching the morning ferry and needing to check in before 8 a.m. On the whole, we found the staff helpful but not always available. Because of scaffolding, disabled access was through a side door which was often locked and a search had to be made for staff. A residents lounge would have been useful, and for the price expected. Parking was described as free, nearby. It was in fact, street parking which was not always available, especially at busy times.

Central location just of the prom. Good breakfast served by freindly staff. Bar and restaurant was open to the public and had a good atmosphere although we did not have a meal in the restaurant simply because we ran out of time. Room was fairly small but with very nice decor and was spotless. Our room was located on the first floor directly above the bar/restaurant but we never heard any noise dispite the bar being open into the wee small hours.
