The Welbeck Hotel

Reviewed November 29, 2012

I had a job on the Isle of Man and the Welbeck was pretty close to the customer and well reviewed, so I made a reservation. Not sure why people had made adverse remarks about the place-I had a lovely large clean room and have nothing but praise for all the staff I encountered. Pleasant relaxed atmosphere in the bar where I had a very nice curry, although I regret not having the red snapper with roasted red peppers. Had I been there for two nights that would have been my choice. Maybe next time. I'll certainly stay there again next time a job comes up in Douglas.

Went to the Welbeck last Saturday with friends visiting from England. We knew we would have a good meal and we were not disappointed. There's so much choice and the chef will cater for individual requests. Service as always was very good and the staff are welcoming and friendly.

Just stayed at the hotel for a couple of nights whilst working locally. The rooms were very clean and tidy and service very friendly. Being located just off the sea front meant it was lovely and quiet although I still has a sea view (third floor). Very good value for money and would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: stay on the third floor and above and you still get a sea view. The local Kippers were the best choi...

Finding a great hotel on IoM is impossible. So what would only warrant 1 or 2 stars elsewhere has to be upgraded here! The facilities are tired but the staff are great and so is the food. The location is pretty handy too.

Room Tip: Try and get a sea view

We were very disappointed to read that John S found our facilities to be 'Tired' as we are constantly refurbishing them, as much as time and budget allows.
With regard to the grading system, I completely agree that the 'guest accommodation' 'B&B' etc. should be removed from the star system as it does confuse customers and 3 or 4 star is not always what they would expect.
However, The Welbeck is a three star HOTEL and having travelled around British Isles, Europe and beyond, usually staying in 3 & 4 star establishments, it seems to us that we have to do far more on the Isle of Man to achieve our gradings.

The hotel is situated behind the Promenade and some rooms have a sea view. The hotel staff were very friendly and the food was lovely, with breakfast cooked freshly for each guest. This is possibly the most cleanest hotel I have ever stayed in and the rooms were spacious with all amenities including a fridge. My only negative thing is the fact that there is no off street parking however parking in the local streets was not a problem. Overall a lovely hotel and I would highly recommend it.

Found all that makes up a hotel to be there, building,staff,food etc.. Well positioned just off seafront , an old building but one that the owners had obviously spent a good deal of time and money on to maintain and improve. Our room was clean and well presented (aided by sea view ) The staff were helpful, polite and friendly. Food served at breakfast and dinner was excellent and good selection on menu.
