Staff very friendly and welcoming. Location just off the main promenade, so less traffic noise. Parking was easy at this time of year and free on the sea front. Twin room with sea view, en-suite clean and comfortable. Would stay again. Thanks.

Really enjoyed my 2 nights here. Booked a single room, but got a twin, so got a little more room. Rooms were clean and nice, bathroom was clean, overall I had no complaints. Security was great, entrance was by a key card at the front door, so wasn't worried about any old Tom, dick or Harry walking in. The shared... More

This was my second stay at the Edelweiss Guest House and again I was very pleased with the accommodation (single room with a sea view). They proprietors were able to accommodate my early check-in request, which was very much appreciated.

Stayed here with my wife at the end of July 2016 for an extended weekend. I always start with negatives and there are just two. The parking is on Douglas Promenade and there is a 24 hour limit. In practice, it's not too onerous having to move a car once a day but it is too easy to end up... More

The Edelweiss Guest House, Douglas, Isle of Man, British Isles, is located off the promenade with sea views to the front. We stayed here for four nights and really enjoyed our stay. Our ensuite room was on the top floor and had two windows, one of which gave a view towards Port Jack and Onchan Head. The room had basic... More

Let's get the negatives out the way first: The wash basin in our bathroom was one of those very annoying tiny - tiny - contraptions in which it was only just possible to clean your teeth. Other negatives? None. Shirley, The Edelweiss's owner, was helpful, friendly and most obliging. The room was clean, although slightly fading, and the bed was... More

We all really needed this holiday following a family bereavement and we chose to return to the Isle of Man after spending too long away. This hotel is nearer to the Onchan side of Douglas but we wanted to be close to the horse trams for the weekend cavalcade and the MAE so chose the Eidelweiss due to its convenient... More

Stayed here for two nights for a mountain bike race. Nice little hotel. Clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly, and very accommodating when I needed to keep my bike in my room for a very early start. The breakfast was spot on too.

Clean, convenient, single room was spacious. This end of the prom is very quiet, slept with window open, and all I could hear were the waves lapping on the beach. Computer for guest use appreciated. Bedside light not great for reading (replacing black shade with white would improve it).
