The property is old but unusually well-kept. My single room was smallish but spotlessly clean with a good-sized bathroom, huge fluffy towel and very comfortable bed. The host Ashley (I hope I have her spelling correct) was charming and very helpful. Didn't have time for breakfast. Very close to promenade and shops. For my overnighter purposes, it was perfect.

The proprietor (Gloria) was friendly, welcoming and helpful, the location is not far from the promenade and ferry terminal, which makes it convenient for those arriving on the ferry. On the downside though: The location makes parking a little difficult, with 2 or 4 hours parking restrictions around the area. Also, there's no "do not disturb sign" so room was... More

We're so lucky we booked this place. Most B&B owners would turn their nose up at a group of 11 guys (Young and Old) who were on a stag do. But we were welcomed with open arms, given a late check-out and the breakfast was delicious. Great little place, with a lovely owner. Fantastic location 30 seconds back from the... More

Our stay was reasonably enjoyable however our room was at the top of the house we counted 62 steps and no lift it was not for the faint hearted especially carrying suitcase. The beds were comfortable and clean but the bathroom was not serviced at all and I made our own beds. There was plenty of tea coffee and milks... More

Athol House would be better described as a Boarding House rather than an hotel, but don't let that put you off. It's almost in the middle of the promenade, so about a 15 minute stroll to either end. One way to the electric train terminal, the other to the ferry and steam train terminals. The hotel is a bit old... 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

Quiet location, street parking, spotlessly clean, terrific value. Very friendly staff for whom nothing was too much trouble, including 15 min extention to breakfast time due to oversleeping! Beautiful original artworks on display in dining room. Steep and narrow stairs could be a problem to elderly or unfit guests, but we were made aware of this before booking. No card... More
