An excellent family run hotel with well appointed rooms and very helpful staff. Have stayed there on three occasions for business and can throughly recommend the Welbeck for work or pleasure even if on a budget. Whilst not in the centre of Douglas, it is a short walk (10-15 mins) from what passes as the thriving centre of Douglas! It is just off the main promenade and a stones throw to the beach and seafront. There is a small Spar grocery less than 5 minutes away on seafront for newspapers, wine, etc. The hotel offers the use of the gym and pool at the nearby Hilton and offers internet access in the bar and free Wi-fi throughout- Hooray! other hotels in the UK please take note - but then of course the IoM isn't in the UK!so change any money before returning - the friendly hotel staff will do this if they can before you leave. Have only eaten bar meals which are fine and from all accounts the restaurant is very popular with locals as it always seems busy. All the rooms I stayed in had a small fridge with complementary water, a small settee, iron & ironing board, trouser press etc Bathrooms were clean and have usual toiletries etc. Overall the Welbeck offers v good value for money (the double room was £53...not sure if breakfast was included or if the people who booked it got a special rate ..). I'd definitely recommend a stay for business/pleasure and whilst I'm sure there are other fancier places ..I rather liked the Welbeck for its unpretentiousness and friendly atmosphere. Boutique it isn't but then it depends want you want....!
