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

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

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.
