I was given to believe that this was one of the best hotels on the Isle of Man but found it very disappointing. I must have had the worst room in the hotel. The window faced a gap between two parts of the building which had the large extractor units from at least three service areas. The noise kept me... More

Our bedroom was spacious and the bathroom had a bath and separate shower as well as two wash basins. The staff were extremely helpful and cheerful at all times. I particularly liked the... More

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Claremont. It's close to the water with a view of the tower--reminds me of the one in Lisbon. There's also a garden with sculptures and some shelters there--between the hotel and the water. I don't know exactly how to describe it, but this hotel has a nice feel to it--a nice atmosphere...

Compared to other IoM hotels this is very nice. Beautifully restored, friendly service. Clean, tasteful rooms which are spacious enough. The bed was comfy, just the view was nothing but the neighbouring's house's wall.

Every aspect of this hotel was first class, the staff were attentive, the food was amazing, and the rooms spacious and extremely comfortable. The location on the promenade is perfect, and I'd have no hesitation recommending this hotel to friends visiting the island.
