This was the best week I have had in the Isle of Man! This is a fabulous B&B, perfectly situated for Douglas and the Island Attractions. It's spotlessly clean, very up to date decor, and the breakfasts are the very best, with some interesting choices on the menu, all good. The owners Gilian and Kevin, and their excellent staff are...

Just come back from the Isle of Man and stayed at The Devonian, excellent place and lovely people & staff. Gillian & Kevin do their best to please and nothing is too much trouble, the breakfast menu is vast and excellent, can't wait until next year.

stayed here quite a few times now, Gillian and kevin are both lovely people who aim to please during your stay, breakfast was most enjoyable and is varied, rooms have excellent wifi and are decorated nicely, town is only 10 minutes away by foot, casino is a short walk away down the prom, really enjoy staying at this hotel

This is not a Hotel (as advertised) but a run down B and B in a run down area of Douglas. The staff are pleasant enough (when you can find them) but the whole place could do with complete refurbishment. My room was tiny, damp and nothing worked. I am glad I only stayed one night it was enough for... More

We have just returned from the Isle of Man, we had a very enjoyable time and the weather was good to us. Because our flight came in at 10:30 am, we had arranged to leave our bags at the hotel, before we went off exploring Douglas. We had a warm welcome when we arrived and we were allowed to use... More

Spent four nights here. Great location just off the prom, adjacent to the Villa Marina and only a 15 minute stroll from the ferry terminal or downtown Douglas. Very handy for the theatre too! The room was super, super clean with all you need for a comfortable night's sleep. Always reassuring. The hosts were authentically friendly, but they didn't intrude.... More

.... as Rod Stewart once sang in "You wear it well". The Devonian is one of a terrace of hotels in Broadway, in a great location just around the corner from the Villa Marina entertainment complex and a short stroll to the Town Centre and Sea Terminal along Douglas' wide and sweeping seafront promenade - or you can save your...

My wife and I stayed here for a week for our holiday. I don't think that we could have made a better choice. The location was fine; close to the sea front without being noisy and the only issue might be parking. However, the IoM has excellent and fairly priced public transport and we didn't bring our car - never... More
