This is a guest house, rather than a hotel and as such, it is generally very good. The beds we had were very comfortable and the breakfasts substantial. BUT if you have mobility issues, the stairs may defeat you. If you are sensitive to noise, you may have trouble sleeping, both at the front and rear of the building, because... More

This Hotel was right on the promenade-would of loved a room at the front, but our room was nice & quiet at the back. Lovely breakfast selection. Friendly staff, parking was reasonable. Real close to cafes/restaurants/other activities.

From the moment we booked, I found the staff really helpful with advice about getting to the hotel and tourist travel around the island. The hotel, situated right on the promenade, is convenient for local bars, restaurants and shops in addition to all the interesting forms of transport on the island. Breakfasts were exceptional with a huge array of choices... More

Excellent location. Walking distance from the ferry terminal or a short taxi ride from the Airport. Literally a minutes stroll to the town center and quay. We stayed for 3 nights for my wife's surprise 50th Birthday trip as she had never been to the Isle of Man. The staff were lovely, very friendly with a sincere smile to greet... More

Internet booking and reception on arrival very good, with advance email to check on my arrival and departure flights. Having booked a single room, I was not expecting much, as these are usually small and not very good. However, I was extremely surprised to find a reasonable sized room, with decor and furniture in very good condition. Nice clean, modern... More
