Stayed in this guest house as the usual place I stay in when visiting the Isle of Man was full. Not disappointed at all. Reasonable prices with good breakfast at a surcharge. Wifi free and good coverage. Room was an ensuing double and was comfortable. No complaints at all. Will definitely be back

We needed to stay in Douglas on the last night of our visit to the Island in order to catch an early ferry the next morning. The Edelweiss suited our needs perfectly, at a good price. Our room was clean and comfortable with a sea view. The twin beds were comfortable with nice bed linen. The shower was powerful with... More

Don't usually write reviews but I too was disappointed by the previous one and wanted to add a more positive one. Arrived early on a morning flight. The owner greeted us and had our room ready before lunch for us. The room was clean, well maintained and comfortable. We had a lovely few days and enjoyed our 2 breakfasts at... More

We are in return also very "disappointed" by your review and quite shocked about how untrue it is!! We feel it important to clarify the following points to all future guests as they may now feel unsure about our excellent reputation and standards.

A good traditional guest house. Clean and well maintained. Seemed expensive compared to the hotel we'd stayed at in Liverpool on the way out, but I guess that is the location - it was reasonable compared to prices of other locations we looked at on the Island. One quibble: why was nothing Fairtrade? The Island is "Proud to be a... More

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay but we are sorry that that our complimentary sugar sachets were not up to your standards although choice on an Island can be limited sometimes. We are pleased however this in no way affected your opinion of our business and our excellent service we offer and quite rightly. More

Stayed here for five nights on a nostalgic trip to the Isle of Man. Handy for everything, especially electric railway. Bus stops right outside. Sea view room just big enough but it is a guesthouse not a hotel. Very clean, excellent breakfast for £5. Even gave us a packed breakfast for our early departure. Value for money.
