.... 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

I stayed for nine nights in a comfy room and the breakfast each day was excellent. Gillian, Kevin and the Devonian staff work extremely hard to provide a clean and comfy place to stay and nothing is too much trouble. Everything is done with a smile and they take care of their guests. I have no hesitation in recommending the... More

The breakfast in the Devonian hast been excellent. We tried 8 different meals and every single one was super. The staff is very friendly and helps you in all your needs and give you perfect advises for exploring the Island. The single rooms are pretty small, but that is okay if you only use them for having a tight sleep

Had three nights here as a single. Made to feel very welcome. Decent location, only lards from the long promenade near the theatre and opposite a park. About a 15 min walk to shops and buses, although some services run along the prom. Nice, clean, tidy room with good fixtures. Stairways need an update but that is no big deal,... More

Spotlessly clean, big comfy bed and amazing breakfast.Parking the car was a bit of a nuisance at times but that is what you get in such a central location.The whole Devonian team went out of their way to make us welcome.If you want to spend time in Douglas stay...

I enjoyed a week at this small quest house situated close to the sea front in Douglas. Its location was convenient for not only the main shopping are in Douglas (a short walk), but also public transport (including buses to the airport), and the horse tramway. The owners were very welcoming, giving useful information including parking restrictions in Douglas. My... More

We had a really warm friendly welcome and were taken to our room, it was up lots of stairs, so a big part of our exercise for the 4 nights we stayed! The room had everything we needed, it was clean, with a nice shower room, the only down side was that there was no extractor fan / window in... More

Gillian and Kevin are really genuinely friendly and welcoming! Very accommodating and genuinely interested in their guests and what they're doing. Stayed for four nights and it was lovely. The room was pristine, the bed and pillows are comfy, the en suite is very nice and clean - shower wash included. Breakfast menu is extensive and the food is great.... More
