The Hydro Hotel
Ranked #12 of 16 Hotels in Douglas
Reviewed 15 May 2011

rooms were spotlessly clean and well appointed , menu had a good and varied selection, even for vegetarian selections. Staff are the most friendly and helpful of any hotels that we have stayed at in the UK!!! The hotel is also in a prime location on the Queens Promenade, certainly worth considering if travellling to the Isle of Man and staying in Douglas..

Stopped here for 2 nights, rooms are good and value for money is very good.
The breakfast was yummy and the service was exceptional. I think the young lad looking after us was called nathan or johnathan im not too sure ? but he was a little gem, friendly and polite, nothing was to much trouble for him.
Thanks Hydro for a nice break will return in the Summer

Do not go here if you have children as they are not made welcome and will be blamed should anything go wrong! Do not pay with your credit card as their internet system is not secure! Food was ok but limited, rooms were tired but kept clean and rooms made up every day. Stairs were steep and many of them, lift was tiny and a nightmare to access.

Room Tip: Ask for a low level room

Although the hotel was clean and tidy and food was edible, I wouldn't recommend anyone who asks, whether its family/friends or a complete stranger to stay at this hotel. No good if you're visiting with children.

if you have kids dont let them out of your sight as the staff blame them for everything, crank calls, messing up locked rooms and the extortinate tax inflation imposed on diesel prices(may as well blame them for that too!) mind rooms are clean and functional, unlike the one lift to accommodate 5 floors that is cranked manually by an aged crone below stairs....we definately go back tho, when i am 70 and have totally forgotton what it is like tyo have a young family.......staff wearing black were fab, and friendly, one saving grace....
