I booked this hotel because of location and price and I was not disappointed in my choice. The price was half of what other nearby hotels were charging for a single room. I parked for free right outside the door on the Prom. On checking in I was told that I was going to be in room 14 which had...

Booked this hotel mainly on the excellent trip advisor reports. We had sea view room, which is definitely worth having. The bed was large and very comfortable. Strange to have an office chair in the bedroom and no mirror except in the bathroom. The room was noisy, not just the road outside, which you have to accept with the sea...

We spent a lovely few days on Isle of Man staying at the Elland Vannin. Paul & Pauline were very accommodating, in particular, looking after our bikes as we were on a cycling holiday. The only 'blip' was when we came to check out. We asked for a packed breakfast as we had to be up for an early ferry...

Booked this through the IOM Steam Packet Co and very pleased with the accomodation. Clean rooms and excellent breakfast. If you want parking book with the hotel in adavance though or its a nightmare in Douglas. Very helpful owners and staff. Stuart

We visited the hotel last July (2014) with my girlfriend. The only black spot I can mention is that they failed to hoover the room’s carpets during the time we were there. Besides that, I can just name pros: Friendly staff, nice breakfast, good location, amazing view to the promenade and the sea, fast internet connection… In summary, we had...

This is a guest house, rather than a hotel and as such, it is generally very good. The beds we had were very comfortable and the breakfasts substantial. BUT if you have mobility issues, the stairs may defeat you. If you are sensitive to noise, you may have trouble sleeping, both at the front and rear of the building, because...

This Hotel was right on the promenade-would of loved a room at the front, but our room was nice & quiet at the back. Lovely breakfast selection. Friendly staff, parking was reasonable. Real close to cafes/restaurants/other activities.

From the moment we booked, I found the staff really helpful with advice about getting to the hotel and tourist travel around the island. The hotel, situated right on the promenade, is convenient for local bars, restaurants and shops in addition to all the interesting forms of transport on the island. Breakfasts were exceptional with a huge array of choices...

We have no words to describe the beauties of the Island. The same, to describe the location, facilities and management "Ellan Vannin". We recommend it totally! It was very pleasant travel to Douglas from Argentina. Great sea view, amazing breakfast, nice staff. I always had dream with visit the Island. And it worked! This accomodation has everything. It's the Best!...
