“Great Staff”
Reviewed 3 July 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, and found it very comfortable, and the food was excellent.
The only downside was the steep hill leading up to it, and the fairly steep steps, but the hotel has a lift, so no stairs once you're inside.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 3rd floor or above, would have a sea view

Stayed 5 nights as part of Treyn Tours holiday break. Hotel exceeded our expectations by far. Spotlessly clean, good sized very well equipped rooms, everything seemed new. One bedroom window (new upvc) wouldn't close properly, so reported to reception, window key promptly provided and problem completely resolved. Outstanding and varied menu. We enjoyed breakfast and evening dinner for 6 days, very helpful friendly and efficient staff. Although conveniently close to main promenade, the only possible drawback is the uphill road from promenade to hotel entrance, but it's only a very short stretch. We would recommend this hotel to our friends and family and if we return to Douglas we will definitely book the WELBECK. A really nice clean hotel.

We've stayed here many times over the last eight years and thoroughly enjoyed each visit. This hotel would be very difficult to beat by any measure, the staff could not be more helpful or friendly, the rooms are spacious, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The meals are always excellent and the menu varied to suit all tastes. Looking forward to our next visit in September, thanks to all at the Welbeck. Andy & Linda

My wife and I stayed at the Welbeck as part of our Treyn holiday package. We didn't expect a lot, but what we actually got was absolutely brilliant. Apart from the short, but sharp climb, the hotel was welcoming in every respect. Our room was adequately sized and had a sea view over rooftops. The meals were as good as can be got in top end restaurants with matching service. The general friendliness of the staff was faultless. The only drawback, especially for elderly or unfit travellers is the location.

Stayed here for the TT this year in the most stunning weather ever encountered at a TT. The hotel is okay but the location is poor. I is one street ack from the promenade with no views at all. The sun only reaches the hotel in the morning and by early afternoon it is gone. There is a nice bar but as it isn't sunny the outside space is poor. The rooms were nice and clean and the bathroom had lots of freebies which was a nice touch. The staff were excellent and very attentive.

Had a lovely 3 day 2 night stay at the Welbeck. We ate in the hotel both nights and the food was first class and excellent value. The staff are fantastic and helpful. Our room was beautiful and everything looked and seemed new. I am really fussy about the quality and cleanliness of hotels but honestly could not fault this hotel. Also the hotel is set back from the front in a lovely quiet spot and has a lovely bar too. If ever I visited Isle of Man again we would stay nowhere else.

Had a wonderful short break in the Isle of Man. Cannot fault the hotel or its restaurant. The room was clean with a comfortable bed and all the facilities I could want, including fridge, iron and kettle. The ensuite bathroom was spotless and the water hot. Most importantly I got a good night's sleep.
The restaurant served a good selection and it was all very tasty. The breakfast was quite exceptional.
The staff were friendly and helpful at all times. .
