I booked this place on the last minute tbh,I didn't read the previous reviews. On arrival I was met by the owner ,a very pleasant woman.Unfortunaltly I was in room 16......right at the top of the house ,as I had a suitcase with me by the time I got to the top I was knackered! The room had twin beds... More

Very warm and friendly b&b, lovely staff and the lady that owns it is a joy- very nice and kind to our small children! Breakfast was a good spread, plenty to get tucked into. The family room was very pleasant, comfortable- though the shower was a little bit temperamental. It was quite an expensive stay (over £100 a night) but... More

I wasn't going to book at Athol House, despite the excellent rating, because I thought - "any hotel this inexpensive cannot be any good", but then I took a risk and made the booking anyway. I am happy to say that the hotel was even better than I expected. The rooms were spotless and the service was friendly and efficient.... More

I stayed at Athol House for one night to attend a concert at the Villa Marina which is literally across the road. My single room (number 3), whilst lacking a view was both extremely clean and very comfortable. The room rate was excellent and I will without doubt look-up the Athol House when staying in Douglas in furure

This b&b is in a very good location just off the promenade, the lady who runs the b&b could not be more helpful, the staff were very good and polite. Breakfasts were fine.Roomserviced on a daily basis.

I was in room 2 and the very limited view meant I couldn't give 4 stars for this property. The single room and en-suite was very compact, but it was warm, clean; the TV and free WIFI worked. Given its location, only 1 minute walk to the seafront, the £30 per night was good value. However there's only on street... More

Had a nice break in the Isle of man staying at Athol house and the room was clean and nicely presented. We had the family too for the two of us and this gave us plenty of room. The breakfast was nicely cooked and the owner could not have been more helpful although the waitress that covers for her was... More

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
