“Lovely room, tasty food, helpful staff”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Our double room was lovely and well appointed with lots of nice touches. The shower ensuite was great. Breakfasts were very tasty, providing excellent choice. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Couldn't have asked for more.

Very cramped 'twin' room with en suite shower room (described as bathroom on booking form), only one case-rack (no space for a second) and only one bedside light, though this was later rectified. Everything else was excellent, but difficult to overlook the tiny room.

Went to iom for a family occasion and stayed at Ellan Vannin for 2 nights, the staff are very friendly and welcoming. Excellent seafront location close to all amenities. They put on a reception for a christening which was excellent. The food and attention to detail was marvellous.
We definitely recommend this hotel and have already booked our next visit.

Room Tip: Good family room

Just come back from second visit to Ellan Vannin whilst visiting family on the island. Nothing is too much trouble for Paul, Pauline and staff. Once finished doing the place up it will be a gorgeous place to stay.

Just back from a business trip to the Isle of Man. The hotel was excellent - very professionally run and I felt the staff could not do more to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. My room was quite small but had all that I needed. Breakfasts were of very good quality. There are the usual problems with finding a parking space on the Douglas promenade but that is not the hotel's fault! If you find climbing lots of stairs difficult I would request a low floor room as the hotel is several stories high with no lift.

Very nice and clean small hotel. The people working here were very pleasant and very helpful. I totally recommend a visit to this lovely hotel as it has a nice view of the sea and it is very good value for money. Keep up the good work.

This is small but very nice hotel located close to main city attraction, ferry terminal and main bus station. The staff is very pleasant, beautiful sea view, free wifi. I would stay here again if i'll be in Isle of Man.
