Positive Reviews

Rooms are very spacious for the price.

For the price of a room at the Sefton Hotel, travellers might not expect much. Reviews are often good in regards to room size, and many people find the accommodations to be a great space considering the price.

Great access to the bay and port.

Located right on the promenade, the Sefton Hotel provides fabulous views overlooking the bay. In addition to being very accessible from the ferry port, being near the main shopping streets will give guests plenty to see and do within a short walk.

Covered parking lot is a bonus for many.

Included at the hotel is a secure and covered parking lot that is free for guest use. With public parking spots at a premium in Douglas, this small addition makes a big impression on many visitors.

Negative Reviews

Amenities are not as great as advertised.

A big disappointment for many guests is that several of the amenities listed on the hotel’s website are not as grand as they believed. Amenities – including the indoor pool and gym – are often closed. What isn’t closed is in need of updating.

Guestroom furnishings need replacing.

Some of the furniture in the hotel’s rooms could use some touch ups or refurbishments to make them functional again. Other pieces could stand to be replaced entirely to bring the rooms up to modern styles.

Improvements are needed at breakfast.

While the breakfasts offered by the Sefton Hotel include several choices, comments reveal much of the food to be bland and uninspired dishes that can be commonly found at any hotel; and often for better quality.
