Just back from another lovely overnight stay at Ellan Vannin Hotel. The little touches make it such a lovely experience. Breakfast was gorgeous. Staff are lovely and always friendly. Beds are so comfortable.

8th stay in the hotel. By far my favourite hotel for a short business stay. They are continually doing bits of improvement to rooms and services. Friendly staff, good service, comfy functional rooms. Wifi improved on this visit. Maybe not the cheapest, but great value.

Lovely hotel staff very friendly. Up graded to room with sea view which was lovely. Recommend room 4. Hotel is close to all shops and bars. Only down fall was the malicious activation of a manual call point at 03:30 in the morning,this incorporated a full evacuation drill of the hotel. After some time i actually called the fire and...

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. The staff give a lot of thought into personal touches i.e. 2 homemade cakes each evening that went down rather well😀 and a letter addressed to me not "dear customer" Highly recommended.

We were only on the Isle of man one night, but two full days. The hotel was clean, quaint and right on the water. Every hotel on the boardwalk faced the water. We were able to catch the Horse Trolley right out the front door. All the shopping was on main street right behind the hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay here it is in a great seafront location a short walk from the ferry and close enough to shops pubs and restaurants in the town. The breakfasts were superb [try the kippers!] and we found all the staff helpful and friendly. Our seaview room was clean and comfortable with loads of room and lovely bathroom....

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is very near to ferry and plenty of restaurants. My room was small but comfortable and clean. The free Wi-Fi is very fast and reliable. Breakfast was good. Only criticism is that the place could do with a little redecoration in places but that didn't mar my stay at all.

'Reception' is disappointing as the whole arrival area makes a poor first impression and could be a lot better. Our suite was fine but our friends' room was small and required maintenance on several counts. The cooked breakfast was excellent but the choice of 'continental' was very poor in our opinion. The lounge and bar area are in the process...
