First visit to the Isle of Man, and will definitely be returning to this hotel! From the first phone call, spoke to Irene, v helpful, made sure we had a sea view.. When we met Irene she was soo nice and friendly, and all the staff were the same nothing was too much trouble, and they obviously enjoyed working at the Welbeck. The room was fantastic, all the little touches made it like home from home.. Beds v comfy, lounge area with comfy sofa and tv. Bathroom was lush, the shower, wow. there is no negative to this hotel, all positives. Absolutely loved it, very special break for me and my mum, who has been ill recently, this was just the tonice she needed! Thank you all.

We recently visited the Isle of Man for a weekend and stayed at the Welbeck on the basis of TA posts and we were not disappointed. We had an apartment at the top of the building - nice bedroom with huge comfy bed, bathroom with over bath shower, living area and small kitchinette with a sea view! On the positive side, the apartment was fully equipped with hairdryer, trouser press, iron, cd player, microwave, dishwasher etc., on the negative, decor was somewhat tired and it was quite a lengthy climb up narrow stairs and a lift to get there - definitely not for the less mobile!
Bar and restaurant were very nicely decorated - breakfast was hot and plentiful. We had dinner one evening which again was very nice, extensive menu and good value. Service throughout was excellent and staff were lovely.

The staff, the accommodations, the food, the room and the very best of all ...the bathroom...what a wonderful spot to stay. There were 4 of us and we each shared a twin room...the staff were very,very helpful. We were amazed at how much they did and how at ease everything was. The staff were youthful and it was a pleasure to see that they have already learned the art of customer service. Though our stay was only for a weekend, it was a very relaxing stay to say the least. two snaps way up!

Booked on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. Arrived by the horse drawn tram, then a few minutes walk up the hill from the promenade. Our room on third floor had a very good view of the seafront, very comfortable bed and good room facilities, including safe, TV,Coffee/Tea facilities with biscuits and two bottles of water a day was a nice touch. The breakfast buffet was very good with hot freshly cooked food, didn't eat in the evening but there always seemed to be a fair number of people eating, with a varied menu. We used the sports facility, ie got a card from reception, which is at the end of the Hilton hotel, a few minutes walk away. You can use the gym/pool from 1000-1900, with towels etc there, £1 for the lockers, but we stayed beyond 1900 with no problems, the pool is about 15m long with jacuzzi and steam rooms. The staff were cheerfull and eager to assist. The only negative was leaving our bag on our last day expecting a baggage room, but was told to leave it in a corner of the bar, but it was there when we returned. The lift is also a tight squeeze, only good for 2 people. We used the explorer travel card for our 3 day break, but there was parking available on the road outside, even on the promenade it was 24hour free parking. There are plenty of bars/restaurants nearby, the Taj Mahal was good for curry. You could walk into town in 10-15 minutes as the hotel is roughly in the middle of the bay, ie 10 minutes to the elecric railway terminus. Overall good value £80/night and a comfortable quiet base close to the centre of Douglas.

This is the second time i have stayed here,after the recommendation of a colleague.I enjoyed this second visit just as much as my first visit.The variety and quality of fresh food is excellent.The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped for the business traveller,with free WIFI and Sky sports.
The bar area is comfotable and friendly for solo travellers.Although i was on business there seemed to be plenty of help and information for tourists.There is also an agreement with a nearby health club for free use of facilities.
Request a parking disc from reception,as a lot of the town centre areas are disc controlled parking.My favorite place was Port Erin overlooked by Bradda Head.The Only drawback to this hotel is that parking is on the road on a steep hill .You have to touch lucky with how far up the hill you are,may be difficult for people with mobility difficulties.It is also difficult to transfer luggage in and out.The Hotel is only about 500 yards from the Promenade.No views from the hotel as it is on a side street.I will definately recommend this hotel to any of my colleagues coming over to the Island.
