Yep I have reviewed this before because I have been here before. When we planned to go back to the IOM for the TT there was no question where we would stay again. The Guest House itself is lovely, spotlessly clean and in a great location BUT it is the owners who make the stay special, Shirley and Alex making... More

Very friendly staff, excellent choices for breakfast. Nothing too much trouble. Large bedroom, excellent shower. Literally just off the promenade. Bus stop on the main road, train to Snaefell, Laxey and Ramsey just a short walk away.will definitely book again.

The Edelweiss is an efficiently run, good value, clean and friendly bed and breakfast hotel on the far side of the Douglas Promenade-don't try to walk it with luggage from the ferry,its not really central. Reception is friendly, with lots of tourist information and there is a well stocked guest TV lounge too. Breakfast is definately worth the small supplement.... More

Just coke back from a lovely few days on the isle of man. Stunning place. This guesthouse provided our base. We had a room with a sea view, which was great to wake up to. The breakfast buffet was amazing. £5 for juice, cereals, pastries, and a good selection of cooked breakfast for myself and my veggie fiancée. The owners... More

I stayed here for 5 nights towards the end of march whilst visiting my son who lives on the island. The hotel was very friendly and spotlessly clean. I stayed in a very quiet room next to the lift which didn't bother me at all as it is switched off at 11pm. I had a lovely view of the beach,... More
