Where to start. Oh my gosh this place is just awful, the worst place on earth, avoid at all costs!!
I stayed at the Trevelyan Hotel for 6 nights travelling with my university course from Liverpool with 30 other students. We travelled on the steam packet ferry (which made everyone very sick) from Liverpool to Douglas. We arrived at the hotel to find it very dingy, run down, smelly and un-inviting. There was so much mis-matched furniture and decore which looked like a blind person had been hired to do the interior design! It was so bad! The lift felt like you were trapped inside a prison so instead took the 5 flights of stairs and narrow corridors to find my room on the top floor. To be honest, I think I got the best room out of them all but it was freezing cold and the hotel decided to switch off all electricity and hot water after 6 or 7pm to probably try and save money. What an absolute joke, I paid £245 for 6 nights so expected to at least have electricity! My room was basic but with random dolphins and other creatures on the curtains! Very strange! Another student travelling with us was not so fortunate to have a nice room, he was brushing his teeth one morning and opened his window to find that the whole shale of glass fell out and smashed everywhere. Not only was this dangerous, later the hotel staff accused him of being a vandal. What a joke! There are no en-suite bathrooms and there were 6 shared showeres - 2 of which the hotel staff decided to lock so then there were only 4 showers. Also later on in the week, 2 showers decided to break which was just the icing on top of the cake! Toilets are also shared and not often cleaned.
The breakfast and dinner was just okay, small portions though and limited to one small, shot-sized glass of juice per person, per meal! The staff were very rude, especially the blonde haired waitress who swore at you for asking for anything and threw your dinner at you! There was also an older man who ran the bar during the evenings who was very scary and could not understand a word he was saying. My friend who I was sharing a room with had brought her own towel and one day when we returned to the room, found that the towel had been taken and when this was mentioned to the man who runs the bar and the hotel during the evenings, we were rudely given a moutful of abuse and told us he wasnt interested as he was going to bed!
Was extremely excited to be leaving the Trevelyan and heading home to Liverpool, will definately never visit this hotel again (if thats what you can call it) or visiting the Isle of Man ever again. Definately put me off and I hope this puts you off too!
