The Empress Hotel was in a great location and good value for money. Rooms were clean, except our bathroom bin hadn't been emptied from the last guests but not a problem, as emptied that day. Breakfast was very good, polite friendly staff. And free parking opposite!

There was no choice of alternative unless asked. Kippers were available but not offered. Manx gourmet restaurant is a burger restaurant again no frills but tasty. Did not dine in the...

Our sea facing room was very comfortable with a large firm bed. Kippers for breakfast. We were there for a function, dinner in the hotel. The food was perfectly adequate with over 100 diners. The staff were very helpful even reminding us of the best place to buy our kippers
