Stayed 2 nights for TT weekend wanted 3 nights but could not get in due to demand, originaly only managed to get one night booked but cancelation allowed us the 2nd night, unfortunately booked late so could only get a double to share with my mate, however very friendly and helpfull reception staff arranged for us to have an available twin room for our first night with a swap to the double for our second night, twin had a great sea view, double not as nice but was comfy and 1000 times better than our original alternative of a tent or a park bench!!
Breakfast great (Manx Kippers for me full English for my mate both good).
Location is a 5-10 walk to town centre but nice and quite due to this, bus stop directly opposite if you don't want the walk.
Stayed at another more expensive hotel for our first night, for next years TT we will book early and try and get in the Hydro again, some freindly fellow guests chatting in the well priced bar told us they had been comming to the TT for over 10 years and stayed at the Hydro on each occasion, I can see why, it is not a Chelsea buteque hotel it is a freindly, comfortable, clean honest (does what it says on the tin) hotel that me and my mate will be very pleased to go back too for another TT weekend.
