Just about to book this hotel again for next year as I was so impressed with the high standards the last time I visited. Everything from the welcoming attitude of the landlady Carol to the comfort of the accommodation is first class. Set in probably the best location on Douglas' seafront with a lovely pub next door ( definitely not... More

Just booked again for next year. We have been booking to stay with Carol at The Kings since 2009 and have always been extremely happy with the service she offers. We always travel there on Lambretta scooters and she is more than happy to park her own car on the street so we can park our machines in the garage.... More

We are a group of cyclists currently staying. The previous reviews certainly don't reflect our experience. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good. The Landlady is very pleasant and has dealt with our numerous room changes with pleasant ease. A very big tick is her very gracious offer to dry all of our very wet clothing. We... More

Stayed here with two friends in the triple room at the top of the house. Agree with previous comments regarding the owner. Don't appreciate being spoken to as though I am wasting somebody's time. In fact would go so far as saying she really needs to think if anyone is going to re book if she continues with that attitude.... More

Such a shame. Unfortunately purporting to be a 4 star when in reality it struggles to achieve 2 star rating just leaves yourself open to criticism. It is in dire need of refurbishment and a good clean. All the materials used on the work to date are of the poorest quality. Whilst the cooked breakfast appeared fine, if your comfortable... More

My wife and I have visited the island many times over the past 30 years. This was our first stay at Kings Guest House and we really enjoyed it. We stayed during the first week of July 2014. I have seen some negative reviews on here but our stay was a positive one. The landlady Carol greeted us on arrival... More

First visit to The Isle of Man with four motorcycling friends. This is no way a four star establishment by UK standards. The decor is in desperate need of updating (some would say this is character not for me) the bathroom in room two could benefit from a deep clean whilst not dirty I would not accept it in my...

This is not 4 star accommodation and should not be listed as such. It's very misleading. The decor is tired, dated and tacky and the rooms are basic and appear not to have been updated in years. The proprietress is bizarre - either over friendly or downright rude, nothing in between. She should really try to find a balance so... More

We had a double room on the front with a bay window and couldn't fault the cleanliness or size of the room, or the ensuite bathroom which had a walk in shower. The view over Douglas Bay was superb, you could sit in the bay window or on the bed and watch ships come and go from the harbour but... More
