    A splendid stay on Douglas with a hotel that met all my needs. The conservatory bar is a splendid place to be. The food was good, particularly breakfast - though there was no fried bread. The room did its job.

    There's a ground floor entrance but reception need to be called to open the door if it's needed between 11am and 5pm when the area is not manned. We have no walkin showers or disabled friendly rooms unfortunately.
