I cannot praise this establishment enough. The receptionist, Shirley, met us on our arrival and couldn't have been any more helpful. She showed us to our rooms and explained how everything worked. We were then left to our own devices, but were reassured that if we wanted anything it would not be any trouble - reassuring. We stayed in the... More

We stayed 4 nights. The suites appeared to be newly refurbished. The facilities are excellent. The location on Douglas Promenade is excellent. The South Island suite has great views. The Central Suite has no worthwhile view but the rooms are good.

Stayed here for four nights. We arrived on the overnight ferry from Heysham, the owners were very helpful, especially booking us in for breakfast next door at the Ellen Vannin. We were in the South Island suite which was fantastic with lovely views out into the bay. Location is good with the main shopping centre 2 minute walk away. No... More

First time on the Island so we only selected Gloucester House based on reviews and location. We were not disappointed in any way. The "pre-stay questionnaire" ensured we were picked up at the airport and then someone was at the hotel to greet us when we arrived. We were then shown our room - a really well appointed ground floor... More

The location on the promenade is lovely and most convenient for access to the ferry, shops, restaurants etc. We were given a warm welcome and helpful information by the host Jon. A great deal of useful information was also in the file on the writing desk. It was good to be given codes instead of a key. The codes were... More

I have to say we had the most wonderful holiday in the IOM. The weather was fantastic but we really were delighted with the beauty and contrast of the island. The motorbike and sidecar allowed us to explore every tip from the Point of Ayre, Maughold Point to dolphin watching around the Calf of Man. We have been very fortunate... More

Stayed here four days in March, while planning my relocation. Room was spotless, well refurbished. Location is ideal, near Marks & Spencer and everything else. Great value, especially when considering free services such as relocation advice, storage, pay as you go cell phone. Friendly owner and staff, held my luggage for a month and provided useful info about island. Overall,... More

We have just returned from a short mid week break in Douglas staying at Gloucester House. This has been a great break for all the family. Gloucester House is a beautiful welcoming hotel with great facilities which allowed us the luxury of a hotel style stay and the flexibility of self catering, ideal for all of the family. The location... More

I had to travel to the Isle of Man for one day and found Gloucester House on TripAdvisor. I've stayed at all kinds of places for both work and leisure over the years but none have given me cause to reconstitute my TripAdvisor account to write a review, so here goes! What you get is; a spacious apartment which on... More

A group of us stayed here for three days in May, using it as our base for a cycling trip to the island. Location was excellent being so close to the ferry terminal, only a couple hundred of yards. The apartments were first class in every way and I would find it hard to criticise any aspect of the room,... More
