I’ve just returned from my second single-night visit to the Isle of Man, the first a couple of months ago. On both occasions I stayed at the Kings Guest House. I was impressed the first time by the friendly atmosphere and good service, but it was out of season, with not many guests. However, on Thursday it was full, immediately... More

I was booked in for 2 nights over Easter 2015. The Seacat to Liverpool broke down and I stayed for a full week. Very well looked after and a very good breakfast. Clean and very good value and helpful staff.

Our host was very friendly helped in anyway she could. She had all the info a visitor to the Isle of Man would need, instead of staring at the info books we... More

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
