Great stay at a heritage hotel
Great location on promenade - convenient for shops and restaurants; atrium room balcony great place to relax at end of the day; food & drinks in various outlets very good - recommended. Breakfast a great pleasure with friendly and chatty staff - great welcome to the day. Suggest guests should try the Manx kippers - very good. Location next to Theatre - great opportunity to see shows. Parking in underground carpark very convenient. Bad ventilation in the bathroom (no extractor fan working); shower is small and not easy to keep bathroom dry; cleanliness could be better

A let down
We haven't been to the island for 14 years and were looking forward to the trip. We chose what seemed to be the best hotel available. Considering the cost, the hotel was a disappointment. The double room was not a true double, but two single beds pushed together. The room was situated in the heart of the hotel away from daylight, and was next to a water fountain which dripped water all night. The noise of banging doors did not help either. Breakfast and the evening meal were good however.
