“Quite simply faultless”
Reviewed 29 November 2010

I have stayed in many seaside hotels over the years, this is quite simply the best! Parking is available free of charge on the hill above the hotel just steps away. A typical looking seaside hotel from the outside, a spotlessly clean and well run establishment inside. The rooms were large, the beds were comfortable. The management and staff were pleasant, always on hand to help and always had a smile! The food was exactly as it should be, old favourites presented perfectly and so tasty too! I would return to this hotel without hesitation, in fact I could live there!!

From the moment you walk through the door, you feel like you're at home with friends. Mike and Irene and all the staff always make you feel welcome and do their best to make sure everything is just right.

The rooms are spacious and well appointed. There's free wi-fi throughout the hotel and the rooms all have fridges as well as TVs and a kettle so it's ideal for both work and play.

The bar is a great place to meet up at the end of the day and share your stories of where you've been and what you've seen and then you can move on to the restaurant with an excellent selection of food for a memorable three course meal. There's also a good selection of sensibly priced wines to accompany your dinner.

Talking of the restaurant, breakfast is just as impressive with everything from fresh juice, tea and toast, cereals and fruit, kippers, through to a 'freshly cooked' (not from a buffet) full Manx Breakfast.

Just off the promenade, the Welbeck Hotel is a few hundred yards from the seafront so stays nice and quiet and allows you to go out and find what the Isle of Man has to offer and then come back and relax at the end of day. What more could you ask for, the perfect family run hotel.

Once again we enjoyed our stay at the Welbeck. The owners and staff couldn't do enough to make you feel so very welcome and comfortable. The food and service is superb, the room which we always request is so comfortable, the best nights sleep ever . We have been staying there for many years now and would never consider anywhere else . Many Thanks to them for giving us such hospitality.

We travelled as a mixed group of adults and children to the Isle of Man for a sporting competition. This was our fourth visit to The Welbeck and each time we have thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hotel. The staff are fantastic! Very helpful, polite and friendly. On previous stays they have helped us saw our way into a locked suitcase (note to self - don't give children suitcase keys!), they have sent forgotten passports to the aiport by taxi (the room safe is great, but don't forget to empty it at the end of your stay!) and this year they provided a birthday cake for one of our party, complete with candles and a song. The rooms are all comfortable with seating areas, TV, adequate hanging space, tea/coffee, biscuits and water and good sized bathrooms. We all ate in the restaurant at breakfast and dinner times and found the menu to be interesting and the food delicious. There is a large bar/lounge which serves drinks and sandwiches throughout the day. Can't praise this place highly enough - go there!! We'll certainly be back.

We are a couple aged 29. We visited the isle of man for a romantic break. Im so glad we booked this hotel.
Excellent staff, Huge room which was faultless, all the little touches really count, they truelly do think of everything. Breakfast was fabulous, couldn't ask for any better. Honestly the best hotel I have ever stayed in. The bed was massive. Didn't eat our evening meal in the hotel but the Menu looked amazing. Great location.
We are going to come back in august.
One thing is the parking. No private parking but you shouldn't have any problems finding a spot on the street.
Also you get to use the great gym and spa facilities of the Hilton which is the next street on.
Couldnt ask for anything more.
