At very short notice I gave them a ring to see if they could put us up and thank goodness they were able to fit us in. A very warm and hospitable welcome and we had a very spacious and spotlessly clean room with a superb en suite bathroom. Totally faultless hospitality and we were made very much to feel... More

This is my third trip to Ballacowell - most definitely my 1st choice of place to stay on the Isle of Man. This time I stayed in the twin room, previous trips were the double. Received a very warm welcome from Maj who offered me a pot of tea on arrival. Room was very clean and comfortable. Great power shower!... More

I had to make short notice trip to visit my father on the IoM and stayed at Ballacowell for 3 nights. I received a very warm welcome from Maj with the offer of a cup of tea. I had the double room - my first impression was excellent and I was right! I found the room to be very comfortable,... More

Very comfortable, clean & quiet B&B in the North of the island. Lovely situation & great view; excellent breakfast. You will almost certainly need a car - public transport would be difficult. I understand self-catering accommodation is also available. Highly recommended.

When we were called back to continue with our project on the Island, there was no hesitation in re-booking this B&B. Maj and Chris are fabulous hosts and the stay was as pleasant as before. I would strongly advise that future guests try the Manx kippers as a breakfast option too! Many thanks you two and here's to our next... More
