“Great place to stay on the Isle.”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Adriane and family run a wonderfully warm and welcoming B&B hotel right where you need to be if staying in Douglas. They went out of their way to make us feel at home and provided a wealth of local info and advice, - plus helped us beyond the call of normal friendly service.
The Isle of Mann is a wonderful destination, lots of local interest, sightseeing, good food, friendly people, lots of unique history ( dont miss the Manx Museum in Douglas).
And on top of all that, the unique attraction of the TT with it's long history of motorcycle legend making.
It is an enchanting island with the most wonderful scenery!

I have stayed at the Athol House on 3 occasions, and I have stayed on the Isle of Man on many occasions. The Athol House is a excellent B&B, you will struggle to find better at the price. Adrianne is a lovely land lady who has rebuilt a lovely building. The bedrooms are clean and with extremely comfortable beds. Breakfasts are excellent, and the location is great for all Douglas has to offer.

My family and I stayed at the Athol for a couple of days in the holidays recently. The accommodation was extremely comfortable, fresh and had a lovely homely atmosphere. Fantastic location on the Promenade with accessibility to the beach, Villa Marina Gardens/complex, shopping centre, activities, and many bars and restaurants.

The staff were very warm and welcoming. Breakfast was great!

We will be back! Thank you Athol House.

We stayed during the Winter European market time at Douglas and the high street is only a short walk past the Villa Marina and Theatre. A bus service also runs from the Promenade with a large beach on the door step.

Adrianne and Kate provide a warm welcome with plenty of local knowledge. They run a lovely and characteristic Victorian Guest House with clean and cosy rooms. Tea & coffee, a TV and Wi-Fi are available in rooms and great breakfast is available in a beautiful, charming dining room.

My husband and I stayed at Athol house for a weekend a few weeks ago. The location is ideal- right in the heart of Douglas just off the promenade. The building itself is a beautifully restored Victorian building, and our room was cosy, clean and tasteful decorated. Our room had everything we needed: en-suite, tv, wi-fi and lots of tea and coffee making facilities. However the best thing about this guest house is the owner, Adrianne, who went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Breakfast was hearty and delicious with lots of choice. One of the best guest houses we have ever stayed in.

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.
