This hotel is just great. It's not the latest modern hotel but just a genuine good old fashioned hotel It's like a home from home with a big warm welcome and the landlady and staff are just brilliant they cannot do enough for you The breakfast is huge. 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

Positive: location, clean sheets and bathroom, possibility of making tea and coffe, free Wi-Fi. Negative : breakfast is not free, it costs 7£ per person, the girl who welcomed us war not well informed about basic info as the tourist office opening times, and especially THE HEATING DOESN'T WORK!! Its freezing cold outside, and inside without heating feels a bit... More

I stayed from June 30th, 2014 to July 13rd, 2014 at this hotel. The former owners were lovely and so are the new. I have regular contact with the new owner Gloria ver Elst by email. Breakfast was plentiful and served with a smile. The room was cleaned every day including on Tynwald Day [bank holiday in Isle of Man].... More

This was such a cute little b&b, easy to find and I got a parking space right outside no problem. You get a massive breakfast and there was chocolate stashed all over the place! Really liked the dining room and lounge, so cute. My room was cosy and everything worked, the heater made sure it was warm enough. I got... More

One of the best, if not the best that I have stayed in while away on business. Gloria the host was so accommodating, allowing three work colleagues to book late after they had been let down by another hotel in Douglas. My room No3 was ideal, extremely clean, and warm. More towels than you will need, with all the usual... More

I had a top floor room in this hotel with a view overlooking a back yard for a three night stay. There are lots of stairs in this hotel and no lift. The hotel changed ownership over the weekend I stayed, which did complicate things somewhat; however the following comments are intended to reflect the quality of the accommodation rather... More

I arrived in the late evening off the Liverpool ferry to find the hotel had changed hands very recently (previous week) and there had been a change in the booking - long story and certainly not the fault of either owner. The new owner worked hard to make sure things were sorted and by 2300 we were all in rooms... More
