4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2010

Other than the seagulls calling to each other early in the morning, it was exactly what I was looking for to have a relaxed time to slow down and enjoy the beautiful Isle of Man. The staff made it an exceptional experience and I look forward to going back with my wife.

As usual the service was friendly, helpful and efficient. My room was modern, comfortable, clean and the facilities were all up to date and working.
As a none driver I find the Ellan Vannin very well situated for access to public transport, both the modern and vintage. As for drivers, parking seems good on the prom right outside the hotel.
Breakfast is self service everything is freshly cooked and there is always plenty to choose from, you can really set yourself up for the day.
I had a very enjoyable stay and I'm already looking forward to going back next year.

I was sorry I had not booked for longer at the Ellen Vannin hotel. Arrival was friendly and welcoming.
My room was very attractively and freshly decorated, as was the en-suite shower room, plentiful hot water and all spotlessly clean.
Breakfast was self service with plenty of choice of cereals, toast and a hot buffet, tea,coffee and fruit juice.
I certainly would stay here again - The Isle of Man is well worth a visit.

This is a small hotel and therefore has some limitations (eg no bar, no lift), but we found the Ellan Vannin excellent. Our room had been recently refurbished in a modern, comfortable and tasteful way. It had a beautiful view across the bay and we awoke to sunshine streaming in when the curtains were opened. The location is ideal - just 5 minutes walk from the ferry port and close to the shops and amenities. The staff were very friendly and helpful without being intrusive and the full English breakfast was provided on a 'help yourself' basis, so we always started the day well fed and ready for anything! We had a brilliant stay on the island and will certainly be returning - both to the IOM and to the hotel.
