Welcoming and helpful hosts - Shirley was happy to chat and provide local information at any time. Breakfast was plentiful, unlimited, self-service buffet which is faster than waiting to be served, hot food was hot and set you up for the day. And all at a great price. Strongly recommend to stay.

Shirley and Alex are hosts par excellence. They go the extra mile to ensure that you have a good time. Stacks of cereals fruit and freshly cooked breakfast and the best coffee on the island.
Rooms well decorated with modern bathrooms and even though close to the promenade, we did not experience any traffic noise. Very handy for the local buses and very close to the Manx Electric Railway. A very pleasant stay and like Arnie we will be back.

Room Tip: The higher the better

Thank you for your wonderful comments - you really are very kind!
It was an absolute pleasure to have you both stay with us and look forward to seeing you again very soon.
If there was such a thing as Guest Advisor you would score five stars in every area.

We enjoyed staying at the Edelweiss Hotel. A good choice of food was presented at breakfast, with the hot choices always hot. The hotel we thought was situated in a nice position on the promenade as the trams and bus stops were within approx 100yds. We had a sea view, right at the top, a great position affording good views of the sea cat and ferries coming and going. The only fault we had of the room was there was no shower, just the bath. The room and bathroom was kept very clean and tidy during our stay.
We have never seen such a small lift, but it did cause much amusement to those watching in the lounge as two people trying to get in together! Still it was much better than climbing the stairs to our room.
Overall we think it was good value, thank you all very much. Mick & Gill Flack.

Room Tip: Take the sea view room at the top of the hotel, good views, quiet.

Lovely hotel, well positioned at the far end of the promenade, so suggest the horse tram or bus from the ferry terminal. Made to feel very welcome by Shirley and Alex.
Room on the top floor, but there is a small lift thankfully. Rooms very clean and comfortable, with adequate tea and coffee. Breakfast fabulous...spoilt for choice. A very comfortable lounge to relax in if required.
If I were to return to the island, would not hesitate to stay there again, and would definitely recommend this place to stay, if ones requirements, were small and friendly and good value for money

Stayed at the Edelweiss on Switzerland Rd for 4 nights in the rainy month of June 2012.
Like previous reviews, there is really little to complain about. Room was basic, with small TV, with tea/coffee making facilities. Clean room and comfy enough beds (twin). Breakfast was good with a variety of cereals / yoghurt and hot foods available. Both Alex and Shirley are good host,s and were very helpful .
The lift is a great talking point on Trip Advisor, and has to be experienced to be believed - never have seen such a dwarf designed feature before. Not for the claustrophobic !!
All in all, very happy with our stay, but probably not return - no fault of hotel or island - just a case of been there, done that, and move on.

Lovely Hotel , Wonderful staff.

I stayed here for a long weekend and coudltn have enjoyed it more. The room was clean fresh and tidy and have all the basic essentials you coudl possibly need.

Anythign that they didnt have you only need to ask for and Shirley the Manger would do whatever she coudl to accomidate you.

The breakfast was a help yourself buffet which was always fully stocked and tasty.

overall a good stay and would definatly come back here.

Room Tip: You will need to ask for a sea view , if this is what you desire
