Athol House is the quintessential Manx Guesthouse of yesteryear. Clean, comfortable rooms with good en-suite bathrooms / shower rooms, in a prime location near Douglas beach, the promenade and central Douglas. Most impressive was the wonderful service that we received from the Italian lady, Gloria, who owns and runs this little gem. Nothing was too much of an effort for... More

My partner and I stayed here for the 6th year running while going to the island for the TT races. We were dissapointed. It had changed hands and we wasn't told. Whilst the owner is lovely the breakfast is not. There is a young lad named Arthur who waits on and he is an absolute gem. The room was not... More

Standard of the room was very good as was the breakfast. The problem we has was that we were on the 4th floor and I had two heavy bags to carry up there. The owner was very helpful and tried to find us a room on a lower floor, however there were none available. She also offered to call around... More

I stayed here for two nights as a base for exploring the island on my motorbike. Very easy to find and a warm welcome from the owner. My single room was perfect for my stay and very clean and comfortable. As mentioned by other visitors the breakfasts are great and will set you up for the day (extra £7). Only... More

I visited the guest house as I was walking the Isle of Man Coastal path during the Walking Festival. I had a single ensuite room which was clean, comfortable and well fitted out. A bit dated, but the whole island is a bit dated :-) The breakfast was very good and available from 7 am which suited my early starts.... More

Lots of choice in cereal, fruit etc and the cooked breakfast keeps... More

Wonderful stay. Friendly, helpful staff. Spotlessly clean. Beds very comfortable with good quality bedding. Breakfast delicious. Lovely homely touches of sweets and snacks in the lounge. Very close to the sea front and shops. We were in room number one and heater was very effective.

This Guest house is comfortable, spotlessly clean and excellent value for money. The breakfasts are great and the staff friendly. The beds are comfortable and the room was well furnished to maximise the limited space. I especially liked the fact that the stairs don't creak, the fire doors don't bang and in fact we were not disturbed by any noises... More

Great location - just about 30 seconds walk from the promenade, and nice staff. We stayed in room 8 (a fairly large room - twin room but with 4 single beds - with nice big bay windows but a tiny bit chilly as a result) and room 15 (a small-ish room but a nice big double bed). Showers were warm... More
