Positive Reviews


Super-happy owners are real 'can-do' characters.

Bubbling with energy and never without a smile, The Adelphi's ever-helpful hosts make most other hotel owners look positively comatose in comparison! Outstanding hospitality; nothing is ever too much trouble for this industrious, attentive and thoroughly


Location is just perfect.

With everything from the beach and theatre to the Tynwald and the Manx Museum lying within easy walking distance, this hotel is an ideal base for anyone who likes to do their sightseeing on foot.


Breakfasts are top-notch.

Cooked-to-order, well presented and served with a lovely big smile; the breakfasts here are just what you need to start the day in a positive frame of mind. The seemingly endless amounts of free tea and toast are most welcome too!

Negative Reviews


Some challenges for guests with mobility issues.

As well as being situated atop a rather steep hill, The Adelphi also has a number of daunting staircases located within its environs. Not ideal if you or any of your party have mobility issues.


Wi-Fi doesn't reach the attic rooms.

If being online is important to you then make sure you opt for a room on one of the lower floors: the hotel's Wi-Fi does not yet extend as far as the 'penthouse suites'.


Guest accommodations are modest.

Whilst The Adelphi's guest bedrooms are very clean and tidy (impressively so), it is fair to say they are pretty basic and – in some cases – quite small. 'Functional' is perhaps the best word to describe them.
