We have just returned after visiting the IOM TT Practice week and spent 3 nights at the Hydro Hotel. The Hotel is a great value for money 3* Victorian Hotel, which creaks a bit. The rooms are clean and well appointed. My room had twin beds, a flat Screen TV (limited Channel Choice), Tea / Coffee making facilities and a decent en-suite bathroom. The Breakfasts were also very good. There is also a bar with an extremely friendly night porter who kept the bar open as late as anyone wanted. Overall, all of the staff were extremely pleasant & helpful.
Parking is a bit limited and restricted to the Promenade and it's a good 15 mins walk to the livelier part of Douglas....but after being on the motorcycle all day the walk was welcome.
It's certasinly not a 4 or 5 star Hotel....so don't expect this. But for a Victorian era, Isle of Man 3* Hotel it's pretty good. All in all, I would recommend this hotel and will stay there again next year.
