Nice hotel, good facilities, lovely staff (just a tad noisy at the weekend!)

This hotel is not the most attractive to look at, but then that's not why I go to hotels! It has a few minor knocks and dints here and there - the balcony railings could do with a repaint for example - but the room (307) was clean, warm and comfortable.
All the staff were very friendly and attentive, the room was cleaned thoroughly every day, comfortable beds (although strangely slightly noisy if you move around alot in your sleep) the breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice (full English and/or Continental) and the facilities were great: indoor pool, hot-tub, sauna, steamroom, cardio gym, weights gym and free parking.
There's a seperate cinema onsite, a casino and a club, none of which we sampled so have no idea what they're like. One small criticism, if I ad to find one, would be the sound of the bass coming from the club late at night - something virtually every establishment which plays music seems to do, I don't know why! - so choose your room carefully! (You can ask for this when booking on the hotel's website.)
It's a short walk into Douglas town centre and I'm sure in the Summer the beach - just across the road - must be lovely.
All in all a very pleasant stay. less
