“Good Location”
Reviewed 2 October 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it comfortable. We upgraded to an executive room (302) which was on the second floor and had great views of the promenade. The hotel staff were very helpful and the room was very clean. Breakfast was great. There were a few small downfalls such as the shower being quite poor and the shower screen having no seal so leaked onto bathroom floor. The decor was a little dated but to a standard that you would expect from a 3 star hotel. The lady in the room next door must have had hearing problems because we could hear every word from here tv it was so loud but not something the hotel were to blame for really. Bed was comfy and the room had the usual tea making facilities and complimentary bottled water. A nice stay in all and we would most likely return to this hotel although not at the same time of year because Douglas was like a ghost town when we visited.

We stayed for 3 nights. Excellent location. The staff were friendly. We went with another couple, our room on the 3rd floor was a nice size, lovely bathroom. The other couples room was on the 2nd floor and was huge with a king size bed. The only thing that let it down was the view at the back, but that can't be helped. Also being over the bar meant we were kept awake by people outside having a fag and by the bottle bins being emptied
The breakfast was amazing, couldn't fault at all.
We paid for a deal over the 3 nights so it was well worth the money.

Stayed here for 3 nights in July. Room was very big, very clean and very comfortable. The breakfasts were superb, especially the Manx kippers! The best thing about this place is the location....stunning views across the promenade and a few minutes walk to the main shopping area. Would return.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the promenade, the views are stunning.

The hotel is in a great location on the promenade very close to the centre of Douglas.
I stayed for one night on business and the hotel was perfectly adequate for the purpose.
The large bedroom/bathroom had been modernised and furnished to a modest standard.
Only used the impressive looking restaurant for breakfast which was very good.

I have been to the Isle of Mann for over 5 years doing the end 2 end MTB race . I can without any doubt say that is the best place we have ever stayed in !
Very large rooms , very clean , friendly staff . Fantastic location for the ferry . The only downside is that there's no parking ( but we didn't have any trouble finding a space )
We'll be back next year :)
Well done Admiral House

This was a holiday break just one week. We booked this hotel as it was in a lovely position on the promenade front with easy access to all five transports that the island has to offer. Buses, Trams, Horse drawn trams, Electric railway and a steam railway also a railway up to the top of Snaefel, this was really beautiful as we went up on a lovely sunny day and we could see England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales from the summit.
The hotel itself was not an ideal place as one of our party has trouble walking and can not climb stairs. The entrance has three steps on the outside which was very difficult. Inside the breakfast room had another three steps to get up. They had a restaurant and bar downstairs but no lift and no way of getting down, therefore we had to eat out every day. The staff were very friendly, if things were forgotten in the room, i.e. milk for our early and late drinks we went down in the lift to the reception area and reported this and it was amended. It is very well run clean and tidy, very suitable to cater for able bodied families, couples also. We would go again only if we didn't have a disabled person with us.

Room Tip: From our experience all rooms are of equal rating, just depends if you want a sea view or not.

Stayed in July 13. Room was at back of hotel at top of building. Wifi was poor as a result and unfortunately noise from roadworks was not good. Bar was good and staff there excellent. Would like a room on front next time!
