    "FIRST VISIT TO SEFTON EXPRESS"
    By , Chichester, UK
    our weeks stay at the sefton was very pleasant and relaxing.the staff from the manager to the cleaning ladies were very hospitable and we felt welcome. the breakfast while continentel in style were adequate and the staff on duty made sure that the dishes were topped up regularly. the room and beds were comfortable and very clean. the only two small points we felt could be improved are the lack of tv stations to watch in the evening.suggest that freeview channels could be added which would make a difference. the other point is that the space for setting down the suitcases was very confined. i appreciate that people on buisness probably have smaller luggage size. all in all our week in sefton was very enjoyable and i would consider using this hotel again at some point in the future

    The Sefton at Ronaldsway does exactly what it says on the tin. It is designed with the airport in mind . Rooms are basic and comfortable . Cold buffet breakfast with cornflakes etc. and coffee and croissants fresh juice. Staff are very helpful . An extra night was no problem thanks to the gentleman from Ireland (sorry I did not get your name ).I was initially told no on the website ! Rooms tidied beds made every day. I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend the hotel as a place to stay .Only down side and I am nit picking was a previous guests used tissue at the bottom of the radiator which was there for the 3 days . To be fair I only noticed it after nocking my watch of the bedside cabinet and it fell under the radiator. DO NOT LISTEN TO THE BAD REVIEWS IT IS A GOOD CLEAN COMFORTABLE PLACE TO STAY AND THE STAFF ARE ALWAYS SMILING WHEN THEY COME INTO CONTACT AND WILL GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO HELP YOU . Courtesy costs nothing in todays market but has a far reaching effect on guests and future business . In my case I will be returning . I was there on a break and have stayed at a number of Hotels over the world in a private and professional capacity .

I would certainly recommend it to anyone on business or requiring a base for visiting friends or family

    This was our fourth visit and as always everything was very good. The only hiccup was that our room was not attended to on Christmas Day and this appeared to be a genuine mistake. When mentioned at Reception the next morning we were immediately provided with clean towels. The Staff as always were very pleasant and nothing was too much to ask. Location was perfect, being directly across from the Airport and close to where we were visiting in Castletown.

    As the family grew they had no room at the inn. Thus, our stay at the Sefton Express. Would certainly stay again, and recommend for any visitors, or locals, alike. The room was more than adequate and the reception staff very friendly. Although no cooked fry up for breakfast there was plenty of bread/toast, cheese, ham, fruit, cereal etc: Just help yourself to as much as you wish. Well situated across from the airport with ample (free) parking.

    Over for family reunion. Not ideally based for access to the main parts of the island. We were meeting up in Douglas. Such said, we hired a car at very reasonable rates and drove into/out of Douglas. The room was small but the cleanliness, quality of bed and bathroom were excellent for our short stay. Service was also excellent, with the guy on reception when we arrived most welcoming. Breakfast following day [included in the cost of the room] was a basic continental one, but again very clean and relaxed. Overall the hotel did what it said it would - an excellent short stay with very comfortable nights sleep.

    I/we have stayed at this hotel on a few occasions, always been good value, clean and very comfortable, however I feel it would benefit by having extra TV channels in the rooms (5 is a bit basic) also the breakfast could do with revamping - it's never changed since our first visit a few years ago.

    Hotel is very convenient for the airport, easy walking distance. It is a bit isolated but the bus service is good with Castletown and the steam train station a short bus ride away, staff were friendly and helpful, room was on the small side but had everything we needed. Bed was large and a little on the hard side for my liking. Hot water was luke warm at 06:00.

    The main problem was that due to having no driver the take away service was not available! The man on duty did a first class job looking after me on the food front. Telvision reception was limited. Looked like a poor signal Brian Hughes

    So for my first ever visit to the island I chose to saty at the Sefton Express and to be honest was very surprised just how nice it would be and also all the staff very friendly, breakfast is continental which is perfectly good was enough choice of things to have. Location just over the road from the Airport is great if you have your transport but could be difficult if you don't. rooms very comfortable and bathrooms good and appeared new, only down fall of hotel was fact that chamber maids didn't appear to do anything in rooms ie glass beaker in bathroom not washed out bed not maid. Having travelled many times to places around the world found myself and my mother seperate room very surprised how how lazy really chamber maids seemed compared to other hotels we have stayed at.none the less would definately stay here again.

    We spent a very enjoyable week at this Hotel which was ideal for a weeks touring in the IOM. The room was very comfortable and clean, and the staff very friendly and helpfull. Breakfast was a bit limited and a hot selection, even at extra chargewould add to the experience but overall the provision was quite adequate. Would defenately stay here again.

    The hotel is easy to reach by a short walk, so you don´t need a bus or a taxi. It was quiet enough for good sleeping and one of our rooms had plenty of space (No. six). The service was very friendly a the room charge was average. So we got good reasons to come back.

    Room & ensuite clean, modern and functional. Very big bed for the size of the room (wo singles bolted together). Not actually a problem but room would look more spacious with a regular sized double bed. Disappointed that the nice flat screen television only had the 5 channels plus news channel - surely wouldn't cost too much to put in freeview or similar, which would help pass the time in the evenings if you're travelling alone or without a car as, although very convenient for the airport and (infrequent) bus service, the hotel is very isolated, especially from other forms of entertainment. The staff I met were friendly, efficient and helpful apart from, I have to say, the girl on the desk when I was checking out on the Saturday morning. She barely made eye contact, certainly wasn't friendly when I had a small question about payment and couldn't manage a smile/thank you/goodbye as I trundled my suitcase off into the rain!
