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.

Got a great deal via booking.com, the room was comfortable and clean, the shower was perfect. A short walk down the promenade found you within reach of the shops restaurants and bars. the lift was a little small, but i needed the exercise anyway so the stairs was no bother. breakfast was a little on the mass production side, but...

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
