If you want a good clean friendly place,with very helpful people stay here.Sea room with great views.Breakfast plenty of choice.We had no noise from chinese down stairs.Could hear people in next room,but I wear ear plugs at night .Beds very comfortable.Would stay here again.Very reasonable price.

Room Tip: best rooms five and seven because of sea views.You pay a little.extra but well worth it.

Terrible attitude of owners. Arrived for a weeks holiday, expecting a decent b&b. On the first night no hot water so we told the owners, they said they would turn the boiler up.By the third day still no hot water, they said it was because the number of guests in the hotel, total number was ten.They said they didn't have hot water to wash up with.Didn't stay a minute longer checked out. How this place got 3 stars witjout providing the basics of hot water.Don't stay here unless you like cold showers.

Had a small double room at the front of the building with a great sea veiw room was ok as we got a cheap deal including ferry fairs.
Chinese owners seemed fine and polite, didnt rate the breakfast, bit small for me and got the kippers on the last day, mistake!!! The hotel is at the far end of the prom and doubles as a chinese resturant at night which was excellent.

Got a half price deal for 2 nights. Room sea view, clean and large. Bathroom clean, all working order. Staff helpful. Only downside is the noise at times from the Chinese restaurant downstairs, we were in room 5. Also breakfast tasted of Chinese, probably fried hash browns in same oil as previous nights meals. We went out for the 2nd days breakfast. Wouldn't stay again.

Room Tip: Sea view third floor

We are just after returning from our annual holiday in the Isle of Man. We are going to the Island for the past 16 years on our holidays. We have stayed at the Caladonia for the past four years and all I can say about Mrs Hayman and her staff (Ruby and Eric) is you would not find nicer people anywhere. They cannot do enough for you. Food is brilliant rooms are clean and warm. We will be back again next year for our annual two week holiday. Looking forward to going back to the Caladonia. Thank you for a good holiday.

I stayed here with both my team and another medical and rescue team for Rally Isle of Man 2012. very friendly Chinese staff who couldn't have been more helpful. We had to have early breakfasts to which we ordered and they cooked, rooms were clean, tidy and comfortable. The Wednesday night Chinese Banquet is very good value. The hotel offers free wifi - something I have had to pay for in hotels three times the price and parking wasn't too difficult. Good location for The Queens Hotel (best Guinness on the Island). Will certainly use here again next year.

Room Tip: Sea View is £2.50 per night but well worth it.

We've stayed here a number of times now and have always found the staff to be very kind, pleasant and helpful. The prices are very reasonable and the breakfast is lovely. For the prices the Caledonian charge I don't know how anyone can complain. Its clean, its fairly modern and its right on the sea front.

We take our two small dogs with us and they have always been made very welcome, obviously our dogs are never left in the rooms on their own and they are trained and well behaved but it's a relief to be able to stay somewhere as clean as the Caledonian that will accept pets.

Room Tip: we always choose room 5 on the first floor because it has a nice bay window overlooking the Promenad...
