We have just returned from this hotel and was quite disappointed after reading the tripadvsor comments. Our room was extremely small and barely big enough for a single, the on-suite was not much bigger that a cupboard. There was not enough room for clothes and hanging space was difficult as a normal size hanger made the small tallboy door unable to close. We did complain and was told they agreed with us, that did not really help. It is also in need of renovation very dated. Breakfast was fine and plenty of it. The hotel is situated at the far end of the Promenade and not near the main shops and bars, but within walking distance of the Electric Railway which is a must to do. The Steam Railway is the other end of Douglas, but local buses and trams run very regularly to that end. Quite a long walk. Laxey well worth a visit and so is Port Erin, recommend a Crab Baguette in the Cosy Nook by the Lighthouse on the front there, a very pretty Port. If flying in get the bus from the Airport bus stops right outside of airport doors and outside the Edelweiss (ask for Little Switzerland stop Douglas only £3.50 not £25 which is the cost of a taxi)
