    The staff were very friendly and the seaview room was delightful. The breakfast service was high class.

    The fantastic room that we stayed in with the beautiful view over Douglas Bay. Also, the exquisite meal that we had in the Gallery Restaurant. The shops were nearby and it was very friendly there.

    We were not informed that the swimming pool was not in use!!!!

    The food in the restaurants was excellent and the service was very good.

    I felt the exchange rate was too high, it was considerablly higher than the rate charged at the bank. One reason that I chose the Sefton, as I was not familiar with the Isle was the location relative to the port, it was more than a 10 minute walk from the port. This would not deter me from recommending or returning to the hotel.

    The Sefton is close to everything we needed to see. The suite we had was confortable, clean, the hotel staff very friendly. Although it was a rainy day the sea view was just perfect

    Nothing to say. Everything was up to the standard

    Central Position. Undergroud car parking. Very friendly staff in most areas - see below. Choice of dining.

    A key factor in choosing The Sefton was its spa and swimming pool. This was closed for the entire period of our stay. We are very annoyed at this, and it spoilt our holiday. The staff were very friendly and helpful with the exception of the breakfast dining; the staff deliberately avoided eye to eye contact making requests for services a challenge.

    Fabulous

    We found it a very friendly and welcoming hotel with a very nice relaxed atmosphere and catered for all our wants.

    Only complaint breakfast service, a) dreadful toaster, b) had to order butter and when it came it was very sparce i.e. 3 on a table 2 miniscule pats with a pile of parsley bigger than the butter, why o why not just put pr-packed butters on the buffet also could have done with having some crispbreads/crackers and cheese spreads for those of us who do not want a cooked breakfast and a better choice of youghurts.

    The Sefton has obviously been one of the top hotels in Douglas but some parts of the hotel are showing their age. We stayed in a suite as a result of an upgrade and all facilities in the suite were top notch. The location is very central on the promenade and convenient for shops,restaurants, buses etc. .

    Everyone was really helpful.....reception, dinner restaurant, breakfast room, chambermaids.....all greeted and responded to requests quickly efficiently and with a cheerful approach. We were in room 103 which is brilliant.

    We had a nice spacious room with bay widow and lovely view over Douglas Bay.We had a separate sitting area ,settee,coffee table and tv. The bathroom was large, containing both bath and a shower.There was the toilet and bidet.There was always plenty of hot water.and clean fluffy white towels every day. The vanity unit and washbasin had a big mirror and toiletries. There was adequate space for clothes in between bedroom and bathroom ,full lengh mirror,plus the tea and coffee making facilities and small fridge containing complimentary water and milk, Downstairs the Galley restaurant was excellent and the Norman bar also served good meals .

    The swimming pool was not functioning ,for various reasons ,a lot of the time ,as were the Spa and sauna and shower.The pool was so small and only 6 people allowed in it at one time .The sides all sloped in so very little space to swim!This was a big disappointment as part of the reason for choosing the Sefton was because it was advertised as having these facilities. Everything else about the hotel was great!

    It had been suggested by a friend that when i visit the island on business i should use your hotel. he was not wrong, i thought the location, the facilities and the staff and level of service from them was excellent. allthough my trip was business, it was so relaxing to return to the hotel for the wonderful menu. Thank you, Brian Cookson, i will be returning.
