Sefton Express
Ranked #1 of 1 Ballasalla B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Close to airport, good food, great staff.
Clean and tidy but little warm for beginning of Autumn due to no air conditioning.
Having a hire car made it a reasonable place to base ones self for exploring the Isle

We have stayed at the Sefton Express 4 times and it will always be our first choice when visiting the Isle of Man.When you arrive you are greeted with a smile and made to feel very welcome. The staff are all very nice,the place is spotless,the towels and toilet rolls are of excellent quality and there is always a good supply of tea,coffee and milk in your room. There is plenty of food available for your continental breakfast ,even when the hotel is full ( which it was when we were there). The shower is great and the shower room has good lighting and 2 mirrors. Thankyou to all the staff who looked after us. We will be back.

Room Tip: Ground Floor for easy access to your vehicle.

4 of us called up at short notice last weekend and were offered 2 double rooms which, albeit small, were clean and comfortable. Bathroom was more than adequate with walk in shower and lots of fresh towels. Drinks making facilities available in the rooms. Staff were extremely helpful. The continental breakfast offered a good choice and set us up very nicely for a trip on the steam train into Douglas. I would recommend this a very reasonably priced place to stay, ideally located, and we will certainly return.

We recently booked into the Sefton Express as a base to explore the island. The Hotel serves a good continental breakfast, quite adequate. The rooms are comfortable and clean with a walk-in shower, the staff most helpful and advised us on places to visit. Ideally situated for the airport, small steam train into Douglas and on a bus route. There is also a good free car park.

This was our second visit to the Sefton Express. My wife and I visitedwith our grandaughter (aged 5). We booked a family room and were pleased to be offered the same room as last year (room 22). A nice clean and well lit room, nice big towels and fresh bed linen. The breakfast is limited in choice but a perfect start for a 5 year old with croissants, toast, cereal,juice, youghurts, ham,, cheese and fresh fruit. The breakfast area is very informal (again good for children) and is an adeqate start for adults as well. A moderately well stocked bar enables you to purchase drinks and the hotel allows the consumption of takeaway meals in your own room ( a plus if you are on a budget). 75 pounds a night it is slightly more expensive than some B&B's but the informal atmosphere suits our needs. The location is perfect if you are flying (a short walk from the airport) and only a 15 min drive from the ferry terminal

My first stay at the Sefton Express and I was suitably impressed. A modern hotel in the "Premier Inn/Holiday Inn" style the Sefton has clean, comfortable rooms, a good sized shower room, the usual tea and coffee making facilities and flat screen TV. The staff are friendly and helpful and there is a respectable continental breakfast. The hotel is within walking distance of the airport terminal.
Excellent value at £60 a night.
The only drawback is a lack of restaurants in the area but there is a reasonable gastro-type pub in Ballasalla.

I was visiting the Isle of Man on business and a 6am flight back to England meant a stay at the Sefton Express Hotel. The place is very similar to Holiday Inn Express the rooms are clean and neat. No bath just a shower and a small flat screen TV on the wall.

Does exactly what it says on the can for £60 per night.
