“Nice Owner, Could do with an update.”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

PROS- My club has stayed here twice during the Easter athletics festival. Basic, clean and in an excellent location right on Douglas front and 2 mins from the ferry terminal.

Both times the owner and staff have been lovely to us- have let us borrow a bike, only asked politely that we dont get facepaint on the towels instead of charging us as many other places would do. We mostly had our pick of the rooms and breakfast was included and v tasty.

We arent the quietest of guests but the owner was absolutely happy to have us on both occasions.

CONS- its a really old building and, although its clean, its falling apart a little and very cold even with the heating on (radiators hot, room really cold!). The owner can actually be quite hard to locate in the big old building.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of the building and those with more beds are colder- sea breeze gets through the...

I stayed here for 9 nights during the Manx GP week. It was all it needed to be, the staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel clean and welcoming. I had a really pleasant stay and would recommend it to anyone, as a place to sleep, watch bikes and explore the IOM.

Second time stayed here both times for a lads weekend away. It's fine and clean throughout. Very dated typical old seaside bb. Very close to ferry port. Nice fella who owns it and a good breakfast. We paid 60 for a room which is as much as you would pay but we think it's ok for what is essentially a place to sleep and have breakfast. No complaints, though it could be welcome to 1989!

The other reviews are spot on. It's a bit if a tired hotel but spotless clean, very good location, nice breakfast and the guy who runs it was great.

Don't stay there if you are looking for luxury but for somewhere to stay for the night which is clean and tidy then this was just great for what I needed as it was a lads weekend away.

We went as part of a motorbike group for the May bank holiday weekend. I'll be honest. If I had chosen a place to stay this wouldn't have been top of my list but then I'd have probably paid too much elsewhere.

The hotel is an old seaside resort hotel but it's good basic accommodation. The staff were very nice and certainly helpful. The breakfast was definitely worth getting up for. The location, on the promenade, is good but there are lots of hotels around it so that's not much of a selling point.

The rooms had everything you'd expect but are not modern. However, they were properly clean which is very important to me. At night it was a little noisy so you wouldn't be sleeping with the window open but it didn't disturb me too much.

Overall. Good, basic, comfortable, accommodation at a very keen price.
