Complete rip-off!! If you catch it cheap, its fine. Unfortunately it was the only place available during TT, dispite 6 month prior reservation. Beds are small, mattress very used, soft and uncomfortable, bathroom old, sink and mirror displaced for kids height, no wall mount for shower head. No WiFi access in rooms, and data reception in the area is hidious..... More

Had very little contact with anyone once we were checked in, although they were polite when we did. Lovely continental breakfast delivered to room at your preferred time, and as we were leaving early, we had an 'overnight tray' delivered the night before we left for our breakfast on the last day. The room did indeed smell slightly 'musty' but... More

Rooms were very dated and smelled musty, had bugs, very noisy. Mattresses were of the cheapest quality and the sheets were not changed once over our 12 day stay. There are no phones, ice machine, food or beverage vending machines, no pubs or restaurants within walking distance. You are so far away only 1 take out place will deliver and... More

Reception times are long, 8am-11pm. Staff are friendly & helpful. We had no mobile while over there and buses were on strike for the first half of our trip, they had no problem calling taxis for us. Room was spacious but a little outdated. Breakfast was very simple, croissant & bread roll heated up with a juice box and a... More

I spent a long weekend here in April with a few friends. We were interested to discover the many glens etc. sprawled across the island. Despite the basic amenities of the motel, the room was clean, the staff friendly, with the spacious garden area and pleasant atmosphere making my stay ideal. I will most likely come here again, and would... More

OK its a little dated, but what do you expect for the low price. terry and his family made the stay worthwhile with good old fashioned friendly service. Ill stay here every time i visit the IOM. Dont ever change Terry
