I have just returned from Douglas, Isle of Man. We stayed at The Hydro Hotel, a truly excellent hotel and resort. The room was very clean, the only let down being the view. Still, you cant have everything! The food was delicious with an extensive menu.The worst thing about the hotel was the entertainment provided for us. The location of the hotel is very central, conveniant for the shops. If you cant walk even that far, there is always the horse and trams which travel up and down the sea front, which is where the hotel is located.
Douglas itself is very clean and you are safe to walk out late at night, which we did a few times.There are the usual shops such as M&S and Next as well as a few gift shops. There is a castle you can visit if you prefer.
On the whole it was a very pleasureable experience, only spoilt by the three and a half hour journey on the ferry!
