“Great stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

Arrived Sat for a 40th birthday party on the Island, lovely hotel although some public areas could do with a facelift as they look a little worn. Our room had a balcony overlooking the Atrium which was very pretty, room had plenty of space and was very comfortable. My only criticism is about the spa, pool was chilly, jacuzzi was out of order as was the sauna. This aside the staff were very helpful and friendly, service was of a high standard

Room Tip: Our room opening into the Atrium was very warm, with no external windows this was a little to stuffy...

Everything was spot on ..... Apart from the Spa facilities; the only thing working was the steam room. If the jaquzz, sauna and shows in men's changing room worked it would have been 5 stars all the way

This hotel is central on Douglas' promenade which makes it an ideal location to explore the town. The staff in the hotel were very attentive, friendly and helpful. We had a twin room with balcony overlooking the atrium. The room and bathroom were spacious and the beds were comfy. We even had a sofa in the room, so it was comfortable if you just wanted to read or watch TV. The hospitality tray was refilled daily with tea, coffee, drinking chocolate and biscuits. Breakfast in the morning provided plenty of choice, for vegetarians and carnivores! There was a restaurant in the hotel too (although we didn't dine there) and a bar which provided bar snacks and meals. I couldn't find fault with this hotel at all and would recommend it to anyone visiting Douglas.

We spent four nights here and were wry of some of the 'mediocre' comments. How wrong can people be? We were given a very warm welcome, given clear instructions as to the location of teh car park and our room. The room was vast! The bed, which was two singles zipped, was almost lost. The bathroom with shower cubicle, bath, sink bidet and wc was bigger than some hotel bedrooms we have stayed in. What's more, it was spotless. We did not have a view, but had been aware of that when we booked.
Breakfast was served on the first floor overlooking the bay and the staff were alll very attentive. The choice was excellent.
We would thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: There is a choice of sea view - but we saw no activity on the sea during our stay, other than the fe...

We arrived at the Sefton Hotel on Monday 30th of April for a 4 night stay for our tenth wedding anniversary on the 1st May. The room we were given although very nice and a sea view, it wasn't quite as we had imagined from the photo. I went to reception and explained that this was a very special trip for us and that my husband suffers from panic attacks so had requested an airy room. The receptionist spoke to the manager who kindly said he would show me a different room for our stay......and that is where our thanks begin. We were given room 107 The Hoggarth SUITE and oh my goodness it was beautiful. I cried when I saw the room. A massive lounge with a view from 3 windows right across Douglas Bay, a bathroom with walk in shower, 2 sinks, jaccuzzi bath with television and a huge bedroom. I brought my husband from the other room and he too could not believe his eyes.
The staff in the Sefton were all lovely from the manager, to reception staff especially Hannah and Carl, Kim the evening housekeeper, staff in Sir Normans bar where we ate a couple of nights and the food was lovely.
Thank you to you all for giving us the chance to have an anniversary we will never forget. Bless you all and see you real soon. Love Helen and Rory King

Room Tip: Certainly worth paying extra for a suite, especially if for a special occasion as they are such luxu...

Bedroom good but the rest was mediocre. Not up to 4 star standard or the money. Wouldn't stay again

Stayed at the Sefton for a friends wedding recently.
Stunning hotel. The staff were very helpful.
The wedding went like clockwork.

The rooms were fabulous, a little warm but after a few glasses of champagne, i didnt mind.
Very clean also.

The bar and restaurant were both great.

Highly recommend

Room Tip: Ask for Atrium room
