Best Hotel In The Isle Of Man

Recommended Posts

So - it's the wife's 30th in January and I'm looking to have a surprise party. I want to have it in a hotel so we can have the ubiquitous disco and maybe even some dancing. I'd also like to book a room for us to stay over. We've got friends coming from across, so they may want to stay too. I have a list of requirements which I think will make the whole event something special. The thing is - are there any hotels over here which could meet all the requirements. I ask your advice and experience:

 

1. Decent quality function room

2. Above average rooms - I'm pretty fussy about hotel rooms so I'd like something special. Not too worried about cost seeing as how it's a big birthday and all

3. Good quality catering. No frozen mini pizzas and spring rolls from Iceland @ Shoprite

4. Good breakfast

5. Helpful staff

6. Decent lounge bar so if there's a bunch of us, it's a good place to hang out.

 

Any thoughts on the above welcome. Or should I just give up now... :o)

we were in the Glen Helen the other week, the food was nice and the pictures they had of the rooms looked good (although haven't seen them in the flesh). Good sized function room and a lounge bar.

Sefton and Empress are really the only options IMO.

 

Avoid the Hilton.

The Sefton is lovely for any occasion. :)

 

Apart form staying overnight, which is main reason for using a Hotel.

 

Over heated and noisy.

Sorry, I cannot agree with that. In the past couple of years I have stayed at the Hilton, the Empress and the Sefton, and the Sefton wins hands down on the rooms front. They have good function rooms, the best breakfast and staff. Easily the winner of the three.

 

Plus secure parking and what a great swimming pool! No contest!

I stayed there once for someone's retirement / birthday bash, paid for a better room and was severely disappointed with the room
