I am surprised at all the wonderful and glowing reviews written about the Arrandale in Douglas. My partner and I stayed there for two nights while on our vacation to the UK and Ireland and we certainly had a different experience. First off, we dealt with only two people throughout our stay. I appreciated the lady who spoke with what... More

Theo and Rose Fleurbaay are among the best hosts I have met. Friendly, helpful and full of enthusiasm. The accommodation is clean and fresh, the beds are change every day and bins are emptied. Breakfast is generous and well cooked as is the home cooked meals served in the evening. Theo and Rose and their equally hard working staff did... More

Made a last minute booking at the Arrandale and was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed a comfortable bed and one of the tastiest breakfast ever (try the Manx Breakfast with the locally produced kippers!) The owners and staff are very friendly and really make you feel welcome. The Arrandale is in a great location on a beautiful garden square, in the... More

Definitely now my hotel of choice for the Isle of Man. Rose was very easy to deal with when booking, and made me very welcome throughout my trip. I travelled alone, but felt very much at home. The Hotel is a genuine 10 minute walk from Douglas seafront, so just far enough to get a decent sleep, and a genuine... More

We have stayed here during TT week for several years now and would not look anywhere else. Rose and Theo are always warm and welcoming and restaurant / bar staff are excellent too. Breakfast is always good. Plenty of choice and very well cooked. Room very good with TV, tea/coffee making facilities and shower room. Kept spotlessly clean. Location is... More

We were lucky enough to get a cancellation and stayed here during race week. Perfect location halfway between paddock and promenade. Friendly staff and guests would definitely stay here again for TT or otherwise. Bar in the evening served food as well.

Stayed for second time at this great family run guest house. The owner Rose gives friendly, personal attention and the staff are very engaging and obliging; I attended for the TT Races practice week, coming down in late evenings from the Mountain Road and I was always warmly greeted, fed and watered in excellent fashion. Same friendly faces were always... More

Exceeded expectations, and I had a problem with my agents booking which was sorted out very quickly and to everyone's satisfaction. That's customer service! Also friendly patrons made the stay a pleasant experience.

The Arrandale is located about 2 Streets up from the Prom. One Building is the Hotel which is situated on the corner and further up are the Apartments (which we stayed in) overlooking a Beautiful Big Park. Upon arrival we checked in at the Hotel (and to pick up the keys for the Apartment) and were met by Rose (the... More

The lady who welcomed us was very nice. Unfortunately there are no elevators, so we had to climb the stairs to the 2nd floor. With the doors and passages not on the wide side, we struggled into our room. The rooms were clean, but not very big. They were very basic. As we were only there for the weekend, we... More

Thank you for taking the time to review us. The Arrandale is over 100 years old and unfortunately the layout of the building doesn't lend itself to installing a lift. However, the views over the Bay make the climb worthwhile! We always happy to offer a hand with luggage so guests don't need to struggle up the stairs. As our... More
