About the hotel
Centrally located on Douglas’ historic Loch Promenade, Ellan Vannin Hotel overlooks Douglas Bay and The Tower Of Refuge, a 19th-century structure built on a partially submerged reef. The beach can be reached in a 30-second walk, as well as the main shops of Douglas town centre. The main ferry terminal is only a 5-minute walk from Ellan Vannin, as well as Gaiety Theatre.
Kayaking, sailing and diving can all be enjoyed along the coast, and basking sharks, dolphins and seals can often be spotted. A panoramic view of the Victorian façade around Douglas Bay is featured in all seafront rooms. All rooms include free Wi-Fi, an en suite bathroom and a TV. A hearty full English breakfast is served in the dining area, and guests can also relax in the homely lounge area.

Overnight Stay visiting family
The Ellan Vannin is well placed on the sea front and was ideal for our purpose.
The room we stayed in (16) was lacking on some very basic maintenance - the bathroom was very modern and lovely BUT the ceiling was awful - nothing a bit of mould & mildew cleaner and a coat of paint wouldn't make good. The bedroom itself also had some holes that needed filling and painting over - what a shame otherwise this would have had a glowing report.
Stayed with my wife for 8 nights.
Seafront location. Good so far............... Arrived at Midday feeling tired and was informed we could have our room at 3pm or pay £15 to get it earlier. Decided to return at 3pm. Being almost 60 years old my wife and I were given a room 5 flights upstairs and being the only guests could not understand the logic behind this. Our room no 16 was very small with dodgy crackling electrics on the bed lamps and a risky home made extension cord under the bedside table. The walls were as thin as cardboard. The alarm clock needed new batteries. The door closer fell off on a regular basis. Our view was of the sky, a wall and next door's roof. The bathroom ceiling was damp and peeling and had no radiator. Heading down for breakfast each morning we were greeted by the smell of strong pine disinfectant and some young male employee having a cigarette on the front steps
We found the breakfasts repetitive and never changing and when my wife asked for a croissant she was told that they were not in season. On 2 occasions my wife found hairs on her breakfast. The coffee pot was never refilled and always seemed to have only the dregs left in it. The staff although pleasant did not seem to be well organised and never seemed to refill or tidy up the breakfast bar.
The cost of our stay was not cheap compared to other similar accommodation. Overall we were very disappointed and felt that the place was being run as a training centre for young people and would not recommend or revisit this place. You might think that we should have brought these things up with the owners and demanded a resolution but, there were so many things that were wrong, the obvious option would have been not to have stayed there in the first place. So I thought this review would give them a chance to buck up their ideas and sort things out for future guests.
