This hotel is housed in a pair of traditional Victorian properties on the seafront, within easy walking distance of the ferry terminal. The staff were consistently friendly and helpful and the breakfast was very good. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The only down side was that our room was at the top of five flights of stairs (not to...

Rooms are fantastic, love the daily cakes and bottled water. Really relaxed atmosphere, we loved just chilling out with a glass of wine watching over the promenade. We will definately book...

Very friendly staff. Clean hotel, had everything we needed to make our 2 day stay comfortable. Excellent breakfast, great choices. Good location on the sea front, 10 mins walk max from the sea port. Would choose this hotel again!

I stayed in Ellan Vannin Hotel for four night in May. It's right on the promenade, easy to reach from the Airport by public bus. The room was clean and very well provided (iron and ironing board). The information Folder was probably the best I've ever read, it was all relevant. Every evening a little basket of homemade treats was...

I have been using the Ellan Vannin Hotel for over two years now on a very regular basis. The rooms are clean, tidy & well appointed with flat screen tv's plus coffee/tea making facilities & a nice touch is the fresh cakes & news sheet in your room each day.

I would head back purely for daily cake in the room, which always hit the spot! The service was constantly top notch and We were always greeted with a smile! The breakfast was a perfect setup for the day and recovery from the night before...in fact the bar complimented the breakfast nicely! Wouldn't stay anywhere else!
