Best Western has its first hotel on the Isle of Man for 10 years following the announcement that the four-star, 133-bedroom Palace hotel and casino in the capital Douglas has joined the sales and marketing consortium.

The newly named Best Western Palace Hotel & Casino is the largest four-star property on the Isle of Man. It has become the only branded hotel on the island and the first casino hotel for the group. It is independently owned by the Sefton Group, with Paul Forrest as its general manager.

“We are proud, not only to be part of such a well known brand, but also to be their first member on the Isle of Man for 10 years,” said Forrest. “As a business we wish to grow and improve, and being a Best Western Hotel with personality will definitely enable us to do this.”

Keith Pope, director of Best Western, said: “We are extremely pleased to have brand presence back on the Isle of Man and also excited to welcome our very first hotel with a casino. With a great location and warm, welcoming staff, we look forward to bringing more worldwide guests to the Isle of Man.”

Best Western currently has over 270 three and four-star independent properties in the UK, accounting for 15,000 bedrooms.
