Comfortable room overlooking the promenade; great breakfasts and very helpful staff on Reception. Ideally located for shopping. Loved people watching from my room; runners, skaters, people strolling along the promenade. Really pleasant experience staying at Ellan Vanin.

This hotel is housed in a pair of traditional Victorian properties on the seafront, within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good. The accommodation was clean and comfortable.

My friend and I wanted a one night stay during TT week and we were lucky enough to get a night at the Ellan Vannin. We had been advised that our room would be on the 2nd floor, not at the front of the building, and we knew that there were would be no lifts. We were very pleasantly surprised....
