Didn't stay at the hotel but popped in for dinner. Staff lovely, food choice in the bar limited and definitely overpriced. Had the mushroom chilli , mediocre and tasted as if it came out of a tin. Pretentious in prices and quality

While waiting on ferry ordered lunch 2 pulled pork burger n chips . 2 cola. Food was well served and order didn't take too long. Pulled pork needed something extra Not as tasty as I was expecting for a bill of £33

Just across the road from the ferry port. We stopped in on a busy Sunday afternoon, had two pots of tea and nibbles between us. Staff were friendly, nice atmosphere and the toilets were clean 👌 the place is dog friendly too 😊

Great choice, great view, dog friendly bar. We stayed for ages after a long walk, are and played games at the table. We weren't in any way hurried. Very welcoming. I would have given 5 stars but the pudding choice was poor.

We went to the Douglas for a bite of lunch. Like most hotels of its type, fairly sure they operate for meals to non residents over standard hours. I cannot recall exact detail, but think you will be able to get a... More
