Had a very enjoyable stay at the Empress for 4 nights in April 2012.
The hotel is in a great location, right on the promenade, about a 5 minute walk from the centre of Douglas.
The room was clean and well decorated, with a good sized bathroom with both bath and shower.
Good choice for breakfast (buffet) with Manx Kippers being available on request - which were very good.
Also a very comfortable bar area with views of the sea which was very well patronised.
The only critisism would be the temperature in the bedroom, which was always too hot for us, even with windows open and the radiators turned off.
All of the staff were unfailingly helpful, and we would not hesitate to return.
