We have just returned from a ten day break on the island, our first visit. As commented the hotel is well positioned on the prom, and is near to all the town facilities. Although the room was "standard" and we arrived with some trepidation after reading some of the reviews commenting on the "poky" rooms our fears were misplaced. The room was spacious with desk, chairs and a sofa along with a perfectly acceptable bathroom and clean. The maid service staff were very polite.
The piano bar is a good size and very well appointed, the bar and restaurant menu both providing decent food at prices not greatly different from the many eateries in town, which on the whole also tended to be rather good. Breakfast was also good and as well as the buffet items manx kippers were cooked to order which were lovely.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Empress which will certainly figure on our list when we revisit the Isle, a lovely place.More
