Bedroom clean, warm and comfortable, public areas a home from home and the best breakfast poached eggs, looking forward to breakfast in the morning. The team here go beyond expectation to make your... More

I have just returned from a weekend break in Douglas. The staff are friendly and helpful and obviously care about their guests. As other reviewers have noted the homemade cakes left in the bedroom are an absolute treat but there are also other thoughtful touches such as the freshwater jug, daily weather reports and information about events happening that day....

A first class hotel with a service to match., We had the central suite which was excellent. Located on the promenade within walking distance of all shops and the port. The staff were always available when needed and happy to oblige.

Comfortable, clean room, helpful staff. Excellent position in Douglas on the promenade. No evening meal but local restaurants adequate. Nice touch with fresh cakes each day in room and fresh milk available for tea/coffee in room.

This is my 4th overnight stay in the Isle of man and by far the best hotel. Although our room was compact it was clean and had everything you would need, plus some nice touches, like homemade cakes, the staff were helpful when required. A hotel that I will try to get into the next time I am in the... More

We stayed here with friends for one night and couldn't fault the place! Gorgeous, clean rooms with lovely views. The staff were all very friendly. The breakfast was amazing with such a huge choice. The hotel is very central so perfect when returning from our night out. We will definitely be returning very soon!
