Located on a quiet square about 15 minutes walk from the sea front this is a good base, especially if you have a car as parking was never a problem. It is true the walk from the front is uphill but then again any accommodation away from the front is uphill! The rooms are in the process of refurbishment and hopefully this will be a worthwhile improvement. We had single rooms which were not en suite which for the three nights was not too much of a problem. Breakfasts were more than ample and the room can be used as a lounge to watch tv or eat a takeaway in the evening. Susan was friendly and helpful in sorting out our various requests and nothing seemed too much trouble. We would have no hesitation in using this guest house if we visit Douglas again in the future.
We could not find much in the way of decent eating places for evening meals in Douglas but have to say the basement restaurant in JAKS was good value with good service. Also the Terminus (by the start of the Electric Tram) was in a similar vein. We had difficulty in finding decent ale in Douglas - the Albert and Saddle etc are local pubs and rather spit and sawdust for tourists and so that really only left the Terminus. Port St Erin has The Falcons Nest (with excellent barman Jim), Laxey has The Shore Hotel with it's own microbrewery (Bosun Bitter - an excellent session ale) and Peel has The Creek Inn.
