Great place to stay, fantastic breakfasts and dinners too if you dine in, wonderful helpful hosts, location couldn't be bettered, if you're on the top floor (rooms 20 / 21) the wifi is patchy to non existent, although it's ok in the lounge, the shower pressure and temperature was pathetic, but overall we had a good enjoyable stay. The prices for next years TT have increased by 75% (not a misprint) so we wouldn't consider it to be good value at those rates, but close to all the action

This was our second visit to Ellen vannin and once again Paul and Pauline could not have been more accommodating, swapping our room for us as I had injured my leg and had trouble with stairs. Nothing is too much trouble for them and looking forward to going back again next year.

Stayed for 3 nights early May and loved the people and the friendliness of Paul and his wife..Food was delicious and plentiful. You would never be hungry if you stayed here. beds clean and comfortable. The only thing I would suggest is that guests are made aware that evening meals are ordered at breakfast. We arrived about lunch time and were too late to book for that evening. It would be a good idea to email guests before they arrive. This did not spoil our stay as Paul suggested places to eat. We would stay here again...Thankyou Paul

Room Tip: If you are not very fit request the lower rooms

We stayed the first bank holiday in may. Owners could not be more helpful, providing feather pillows on request and helping us with information on where to go! Rooms lovely, super clean and comfy beds. Breakfast was large and every taste catered for. Will definitely be coming back! Stayed 3 nights and it wasn't long enough...thanks Paul.

we recently stayed at the Ellan Vannin Hotel for practise week for the TT races. The hotel staff were really helpful and the information given in the room was very gppd as we had never visited the island before.Rooms were really nice and bright and tastefully decorated. Shower gel, shampoo and soap were provided in dispensers which was really useful. The breakfast was really good with lots of choice and freshly cooked. All in all a really good hotel and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: We were at the back of the property which possibly was quieter because there was a fair on the prome...
