“If Carlsberg made Hotels, this would be the one for the Isle of Man”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

OK, I confess that this is now my 17th or possibly 18th stayed at The Welbeck Hotel but doesn't that say much more than I could ever put in a review. I keep coming back because it's everything I could ever want. I've stayed at other Hotels in Douglas, all of them costing much more but ultimately not delivering the same warmth and friendliness that envelopes you as you walk through the door. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, a relaxing and friendly bar area (with sensible prices), a magnificent choice for breakfast, excellent restaurant (TDH menu) or bar snacks for dinner and possibly the most important aspect is that everybody there is so friendly and wants to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. True family run values that stand head and shoulders above the big corporate names, congratulations once more to The Welbeck Hotel for another faultless stay..

From the moment I first made contact by phone I could tell everyone cared. We were not disappointed when we finally made it for the first time to The Isle of Man. Everyone without exception at The Welbeck were friendly, helpful and just "nice" - which is rare in the service sector these days! Although a somewhat "traditional and oldy worldy" hotel, the bed was big and very comfortable with crisp, fresh sheets. Everywhere was spotless and the breakfasts perfect. We could not have asked for more. Thank you Elaine and the gang. Have a great season. Warmly. Gina

This hotel is faultless. The staff are friendly and attentive, the service is quick and efficient and the rooms are extremely spacious and clean. The hotel for us was in an ideal location, even though it is on a slight hill, the walk to the town centre can be done in a matter of minutes. In turn this made for a thoroughly enjoyable stay and are looking forward to staying in this hotel again next year.

Lovely family run Hotel and apartments.

Stayed 4 night arriving late at night after a disastrous on-line booking at another Douglas Hotel. We were greeted by the lovely Alex and shown an apartment which we gladly accepted.

The breakfasts were great and we ate two evenings in the bar area and found the meals excellent value for money. Overall a great atmosphere contributing to a great 4 night stay in Douglas.

Room Tip: If your not too mobile make sure you let them know beforehand.

We recently stayed here for 5 nights with a group booking through Treyn. The rooms have everything you could possibly need, with really comfortable bed and lots of tea coffee etc. The whole place is clean and bright and the food excellent. The main asset has to be the owner, his family and the rest of the staff. They are professional, friendly, polite and attentive. I had a problem out of the hotel and Mr George overheard and straight away did his best to help me sort it out. Hope to visit the island again and will definitely stay at the Welbeck.

I spent 5 nights on the IoM and stayed in one of the Welbeck's apartments for the entire duration. The pricing structure when I booked was such that it cost the same to have a 3 bed apt w/o breakfast as a standard hotel room with breakfast. The apt was in good shape with a bedroom, tiny bathroom (watch yourself getting out of the shower, that sink is close and very cold) and large sitting room / dining room / kitchen.

Getting to the apts is up several flights of stairs, and though there's a lift, you have to go up 1 flight of stairs to get to the lift, and then 1 more to get from the lift to your room, so bear this in mind if you have trouble with stairs. It was nice to spend time in the apt, and then walk down for beer and food from the bar.

Staff I encountered was friendly and professional, and my one small problem was dealt with quickly and quietly.

I enjoyed my stay at the Welbeck and would stay here again.

Room Tip: Get an apt if you don't need the cooked breakfast.

We stayed here as a couple in an apartment. It's not difficult to see how they won best hotel on the Isle of Man !! Attention to detail is excellent - fresh flowers on the dining tables, 2 flat screen TVs in the flat and even post-it notes in the lounge and bedroom. Very clean and comfortable and quiet for sleeping. Also very accessible from the airport - a short journey for about £3 - bus stops at bus stop number 6 on the sea front promenade a few yards from the hotel. Would recommend the purchase of a 3 day transport pass (£32) - excellent value for money.
