Sincere apologies for that whole night. The wait was unacceptable and so was your order coming out incomplete. We got backed up with orders that night and so we will aim to improve this in future so it doesn't happen again. I would like to...More

Only called in for a lunchtime drink, but stayed for more. Traditional bar and 3 other rooms, with good selection of beer, and outside area overlooking the bay. Only had bar snacks, so cannot comment on restaurant.

Ate here twice last week and enjoyed the Gluten free special of the day. Really nice to see GF advertised outside on the Chalk board made us walk in. Busheys bitter was great and the resturant took us back in time. Very relaxed dining.

There's nowhere to land at the hotel: it's on a narrow no through road that leads to the harbour and the hill rises steeply behind. You might get permission to land a small helicopter at Port Erin harbour but it's usually... More

Hello, I'm sorry to say we are only a restaurant with a pub, we've not been a hotel for over 30 years now. We're sorry to disappoint. Marcel

The Bay Hotel is a traditional real ale pub and restaurant. We offer a great range of real ales including our 4 regular bitters brewed by the local Bushy's brewery as well as seasonal English guest ales. We also offer a wide range of whisky, wines and spirits, including a lovely range of popular rums. We serve homemade, delicious food using mainly local produce. It is served 7 days a week with your choice of eating in the restaurant part with a lovely table service or in the bar side. There's also the outside decking seating area for the warm months. We are a small business and we always aim to please and welcome our customers as that is our main priority. We are dog friendly too, so for those with a well behaved four legged friend, you are more than welcome to visit our bar area, whether it is for a great local pint of bitter or just a cup of coffee, the choice is yours.
