“Perfect place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

The hosts Dave and Roseleen were very welcoming and the accomodation is second to none,everything was spottlessly clean with very comfortable beds.Unlimmited tea and coffee in the room and the en suite shower was the best we have come across on a holiday.A full breakfast sets you up for the day and there was the offer of more toast tea or coffee if you had room for any more.A friendly couple you could not find and would recommend a stay here but I hope they don't get too busy as we would like to return sometime.

Room Tip: We had the twin room but it was still very comfortable and quiet although it doesn't have the vi...

Ard Aalin rates the best place we've stayed at for our visit from New Zealand. Everything was excellent and you couldn't find better hosts than David and Roseleen, they went out of their way to make our stay run smoothly.To be met with a cup of tea when returning home cold was very appreciated. If we can make another trip we'll certainly put this at the top!

Room Tip: Just book early as this is the best place to stay.

Our party of 4 adults spent 3 nights here. Rooms were very comfortable and we could not have asked for more.
Breakfasts were excellent and our requests for specific menu choice were met with enthusiasm by hosts, David and Roseleen.

Arriving on Ile of Man, you enter in the motor bikers paradise. For two 60 French bikers, we were reaching the Graal, even if the so called TT was 20 days later, but this period would be so busy and needs a one year early preparation.
Warm welcome from Dave and Rosellen, being in a lovely position overlooking Laxey Bay (beautiful views) and very convenient for transport to all parts of the Island.
The bedrooms are so clean, well equipped and maintain each day with milk, cakes, coffe ... with lovely comfortable beds. TV, tea and coffee making facilities join a nice ensuite bathroom. The great breakfast fullfilled us for the day, what a choice!
Dave and Roseleen do their best to ensure you the best stay and offered to park our two big bikes in their own garage. It was very kind of them so far nothing is really flat in this island, and handling 250kg bikes on such declivities is a real concern.
In any case we would thanks our host for their sense of running a B&B, and we will strongly recommand to visit them when you need a "pit stop" or a longer stay on Man.
We enjoyed 4 nights in Ard Aalin. What a pity, Man is so far from France !

You will not find a better b&b than this; fabulous location with sea views, brilliant hosts who will fall over themselves to help you and improve your stay, great food and a spotless room. Don't bother looking elsewhere in the Isle of Man

Just come back from a weekend visiting family on the Isle of Man, we checked on trip advisor and can confirm all the positive feedback from previous guests. A really warm welcome from Dave and Roseleen, We are going back later in the year, and hope to book Ard Aalin again. The room was spotless, the breakfast spot on and views are great. We feel like we were treated like friends not guests.

Came over from London to work for a few days and very much enjoyed staying at the Ard Aalin. It's in a nice spot with views of the countryside and the sea. It is clean, comfortable and homely and made even more so by the laid back and friendly couple who own it. Expect a warm welcome and if you like a home cooked breakfast, you won't find better! Highly recommended.
