I like the Sefton, but it smacks of faded glamour. Everything is a bit dated, and the overall impression is that it could do with freshening up. The worst thing for me is that the rooms are dreadfully hot - and unless you're very lucky - you can't open the window as the extractor fans are terribly loud and stop and start with a bang.
I've stayed at the Sefton at least 5 times and every time the temperature in the rooms has been a problem for me.
Having said tht I have stayed in a few other hotels in Douglas and the Sefton is the best I've experienced.
The Sefton has obviously changed a lot over the years, with add-ons and extensions. It leaves the hotel as a bit of a labyrinth with colour-coded lifts depending on where your room is. Its left a few quirky rooms. In fact, twice when I've stayed (on my own) I've been allocated a family arrangement with 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. Rooms with steps inside and ramps too. So, its always a surprise when when you open the door!
