Adrianne always provides a warm welcome and friendly service that make staying at Athol House an absolute joy, she is a warm, kind and friendly person with plenty of funny stories and always up for a good chat, and she is a wonderful proprietor. Athol House is a lovely building has plenty of charm and character. The rooms are well appointed with a good supply of tea, coffee and milk along with a kettle, the beds are very comfortable with the finest bed linen we have seen at a guest house that kept us snuggly and warm during cold nights. The Athol provides lovely hearty breakfast which gives a good start to the day and is never to be missed with plenty to choose from. I have stayed at the Athol on a number of occasions over the past several years and the excellent quality of rooms and services has never faltered. I brought my partner with me for the first time this year and he is just as impressed. All in all the Athol is quite simply like a home away from home.

Everything about this b&b is just spot on, the welcome was friendly, the rooms are spacious, well equipped and nicely furnished, in handy spot in Douglas. The best part is the owner, she is lovely and nothing is too much of a hassle. She even organised a day out for us. The breakfasts were delicious as well. All in all value for money and a lovely stay definitely would return.

Room Tip: The front family rooms we had were spacious.

Great place to stay, freindly, welcoming and within a stones throw of Douglas front and the Villa Marina.

A bit about the place:
Fairly old building thats been completely refurbished with double and single rooms all with en-suite, TV, Tea/Coffee making facilities and comfortable beds; rooms and communal areas were very clean and cleaned every day (we think they employed fairies because we never saw the cleaners but it was evident they'd been and cleaned/tidied your room)
Breakfast was excellent with a full range on offer combined with great and funny conversation with the owners.
Parking is on the road but seemed safe enough (remember to get a parking disc from the terminal tourist booth when you arrive, they're free)
Location was perfect for us with easy access to Douglas Front, Shops and Bars etc.

Just back from the Island and really enjoyed our stay at the Athol. It is just across the road from the Villa Marina and is very clean and comfortable with a lovely breakfast, and lovely people running it. The only problem i could see were the steps up to the house, might not suit everybody.

Travelling to the Isle of Man as a 'side trip' whilst over from Australia visiting friends and family, Athol House turned out to be an excellent choice for our stay. Adrienne the owner is a delight - friendly and very helpful and we soon felt very much at home.

Our room was spacious with plenty of hanging and drawer space unlike a lot of hotels I've stayed in and there was always ample tea/coffee supplies. The ensuite was a good size and stocked with plenty of towels and toiletries. Bedding was lovely crisp white sheets and warm duvets. Room and ensuite cleaned daily.

Breakfast catered for every taste and you could order any combination as a cooked breakfast. Take away meals are also allowed to be eaten in the guest lounge and cutlery provided if not eating out in the evening.

If you have trouble with stairs you would need to request a room on the first floor as accommodation is spread over 4 floors.

Location is also ideal being located just off of the centre of the Douglas promenade. About 100m to the beach and promenade. A nearby bus stop is handy with buses stopping there if you are heading for the airport or into the town centre to connect up with other buses. A very good Indian restaurant Millenium Saagar is a few buildings away from Athol House, with another good spot to eat being Jaks about a 6 min walk away.

If we ever return to IoM would definitely stay there again. Thanks Adrienne for making our stay such a good one.

Room Tip: If can't manage a lot of stairs request a first floor one.
