Best Western Palace Hotel & Casino.

Visit us at the Best Western Palace Hotel & Casino in Douglas, for some delightful accommodation on the Isle of Man. The Isle of Man is a haven for outdoor lovers, meaning you'll find miles and miles of expansive countryside and mountain views right on your doorstep. The hotel itself is situated on the islands beautiful Victorian promenade overlooking Douglas Bay, and just metres away from the beach.

As if that wasn't enough, you'll find plenty of activities to give you an adrenaline rush nearby, with great climbing, abseiling, mountain biking and coasteering opportunities. The Isle of Man also boasts many ancient sites that are worth exploring. Peel Castle is our personal favourite and is rather famous for its star gazing - so come armed with a blanket if you're visiting in the evening.

Although the Isle of Man is the ideal location for an active weekend away, the Best Western hotel in Douglas is dedicated to giving you the most relaxing and rejuvenating of stays. The hotel is one of the largest and best appointed 4-star hotels on the Island, offering both - stylish accommodation and an elegant environment for all kinds of events and breaks. There's plenty of choice when it comes to bedrooms, with suites, deluxe doubles, standard doubles, twins and plenty of sea view rooms available. Once you've risen for the day, you'll be able to enjoy a host of serine spa treatments in our health club including facials, pamper treatments, eyebrow tinting, waxing, and advanced or sports massages - if you're feeling a little tense.

The Best Western also boasts an on-site casino, bingo lounge, slots lounge and the Whispers late night bar, where guests can enjoy a lively and dynamic atmosphere. You'll also find plenty of spots to satisfy your hunger including our Paragon bar and restaurant - specialising in mouth-watering carvery - and the authentic Majestic Chinese Restaurant.

The hotel provides parking onsite, nominal charges apply.
