I stayed at this hotel twice for business, it is definitely the best hotel in Isle of Man but i have mixed feelings about it. The hotel is okay. That pretty much sums it up. The staff are friendly, the location is good and the atrium is pretty - i can't fault the professionalism. The first time i stayed I got a standard room without a view. As it wasn't a leisure break, i wasn't too bothered but it was 3* standard at best and I could hear the generators at the back and basically overlooked rubbish bins etc. The entire hotel seems a little...tired. The second time i stayed i requested a room with a view overlooking the atrium which was much better. The breakfast was lovely but the most disappointing part of my stay was that on BOTH occasions, the pool was unavailable due to renovation or maintenence. I think that a 4* hotel should have longer opening hours for the pool area (considering my first stay was during bank holiday week during the TT so peak time!) also, it should be left open longer as in the day it is often closed for swimming lessons etc! I was not advised of this prior to my stay either. I wouldn't ever choose to go to the Isle of Man, as there isn't much to do...although it is incredibly pretty it has the air of a once lovely resort but now Douglas seems little tired and dated as a whole.
