Stay at the Ellan Vannin and you are putting yourself right at the centre of the action. We are located in an extraordinary location on the sea front in Douglas, in the heart of the international business and banking area and surrounded by the best of Douglas shops and restaurants. The main sea port and picturesque marina are only a 5 minute stroll from the Hotel, as is the Villa Marina and Gaiety theatre.

Everything about this hotel is perfect. It is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean and extremely accommodating and comfortable. The owners and staff ensure your every need is met. Cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Will definately be returning in future.
