Classic Victorian property with great character and immaculately presented. Owner very welcoming and accommodating. Room spotlessly clean though at the very top of the house required climbing 61 steep steps to reach it! Very busy so clearly popular and rightly so. Breakfasts were everything you'd want at a B&B incl the famous Manx kippers. Slept well in comfortable beds and... More

We received a warm welcome - nothing was too much trouble for Kevin and Gillian; our room was spotlessly clean with nice comfortable beds; great breakfast menu with masses of choice. Centrally situated in Douglas - near transport links and Esplanade. Warmly recommended. J & I Y

Spent a week here for the Southern 100 races, many years since I've stayed in a 'guest house' but being family run it brought back a lot of memories. Great personal service, good choice for breakfast and comfortable room. No lift so expect a walk to the higher floors. All staff were very pleasant and pleased to offer suggestions to... More

The Devonian is a wonderful large B & B with beautifully decorated rooms, great breakfast and helpful staff. It is easy to walk from the ferry port or bus station to the Devonian. Takes about 10 minutes. There are close places to eat and highly recommend Broadway Masala which is right next door. The breakfast at the Devonian is above... More

Mine hosts are friendly and welcoming,the rooms smart and with all ones needs including free WiFi and plenty of 3 pin sockets which are often missing in B&B's. The breakfast was excellent both in choice and quality. The one minor drawback is that there are steps everywhere and its back up to the room to the bathroom. A small price... More

On arrival we were greeted by Kevin who showed us our room (4) first floor. This floor is one flight of stairs. If you have a problem with stairs they will accommodate you request a lower level at time of booking if one available. It is very tastefully decorated, clean and best of all the breakfast is very good quality... More

This Guest House is spotless the beds are comfy and the breakfast is great and plentiful. The staff and management are great. The only thing is that unless you are super fit don't take a room on the top floors as there is no lift, having said that my wife and I are seventy so not much puff left.

I've been in this hotel for a long weekend...and I had an amazing time! The room was big enough for the British standard, really clean with new furniture and nice decors. The toilet was new and really, really clean. We choose to have breakfast and we were impressed from the menu variety! The breakfast was cooked at the time of... More
