Thank you for reaching out me regarding my post on the Ivan Hoe Hotel in Douglas.
Since my original post have been made aware of some information that a family member had, but which I had not been told about. I have the two bits of information in PDF form but they are both over the 200 file size that can be accommodated via this email system. One is a photo of the hotel taken in 1934 which shows it next to the Villiers lounge & Orchestra and the other is a piece of literature produced by the then owners, Mr & Mrs Williams. If you let me have your email address I'll forward them to you. Incidentally the frontage of the building the hotel is in des not match that of Metropole mansions you referred me to.
