Positive Reviews

Great location.

The seafront location of this hotel is excellent from a number of viewpoints. The view is enjoyable and the seafront really is the focal point of activities in Douglas. Everything is practically on your doorstep, local shops and supermarkets, theatres whe

Friendly hosts and staff.

Many people have natural warmth and charm and the staff and hosts of this guest house have been found to be very friendly and welcoming, making guests feel as if they were part of the family and not just staying in a guest house.

Spacious and comfortable rooms.

The spaciousness of the rooms in the guest house has been noticed and very much appreciated. Many guests find their stay here very relaxing because of this. Some of the rooms have views of Douglas Bay adding to the good experience this establishment offer

Negative Reviews

Breakfast matter unclear.

Because it wasn’t clarified at the time of booking, some guests thought that the breakfast was included in the room tariff, when in fact, it was not, which lead to some inconvenience.

No lift.

The Ellan Vannin is a tall building and some of the guests, despite knowing there was no lift in the guest house, still felt that it would have been great if there had been one especially for the convenience of elderly guests and people with disabilities.

Noise from outside.

As this hotel is located right on the seafront, it can occasionally witness drunken revellers carousing into the night. The noise can literally reach inside the hotel. Some guests feel that the hotel owners should consider putting in double-glazed windows
