One night stay. Shame it wasn't longer. Loads of space in a single occupancy upper floor room overlooking Douglas Bay. It was the authentic friendly service and little touches that made it extra-special compared to other places of a comparable price. Good internet speed.

Lovely room, warm and inviting hotel. Just like a home from home. Friendly staff inspired by the example of the two lovely owners Paul and Pauline. Perfect place for a quick couple of days away from it all. On my own for this trip but always felt welcome and you soon get chatting to people in the hotel lounge. Perfect... More

On arrival that same level of interest was maintained and even in the room there was a welcoming letter addressed personally by christian name. Very effective customer care in operation throughout. The room was perfectly pleasant... More

Staff are friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is brilliant, plenty of choice. We slept very well, the beds were very... More

I must admit I was a little skeptical about booking the hotel as it was 'low cost' however had read some great reviews on here so I went for it, and I am really happy I did. Prior to arriving I had,... More
