Great hotel, bedrooms are lovely and clean and well maintained, hotel staff couldn't do enough to help us. Food was very reasonable and delicious. I would certainly recommend this hotel and I will be back in the future!

This is the first organised trip we have been on and our first visit to the IOM and what a superb hotel to stay in. You were made very welcome and all the staff were superb. Nice comfortable rooms and the food was very good and varied. Nothing was too much trouble. Well recommended,

This was our first visit to IOM and we had the good fortune to stay at the Ascot. This hotel is a good family friendly hotel and all of the staff we met were welcoming, friendly and could not do enough to help us. We could not single out a particular staff member for praise as they were all lovely. We did intend to go out for meals some evenings but didnt because the food in the hotel was reasonably priced and first class.
Our first but not last visit. We will be staying again next year.

One of the best hotels we've stayed in. From the time we arrived until the day we left nothing was too much trouble from all the staff.
A really well run family hotel, from Norman the Governor, David his son Johnny number three, Sandy in reception, Ralph in the bar and all of the waitresses and the house keepers on each floor. Each and everyone compliment the hotel to make it a very enjoyable stay.

This hotel has a ton of quirks, but it is charming and the staff is really friendly and helpful. This hotel is one block from the beach. I realize that every room is different, so my observations are for room 314, which had a sea view. The sea view is terrific, and the windows open and let the beautiful breeze in. There is no spa or health club, but they tell you guests can use the health club at a nearby hotel. It is a 5 minute walk around the corner.

There is an elevator, but it is tiny, and there are still about 5 stairs to get to room 314 (and others). The front desk man carries the bags so that is no problem, but the stairs are small and could be a problem for anyone who doesn't readily do stairs.

The bathroom is quite large, with a jetted tub/shower combo. The amenities are shampoo, shower gel and soap. There is little shelf space, so two people struggle to keep their stuff organized. There are separate hot and cold water faucets so getting warm or cool water is a trick.

The room has plenty of electrical outlets, good lighting, extra pillows and blankets, and a small TV. The bed was a little hard and the pillows are small and kind of thin, but I still slept well. The floor in my room slanted toward the hallway and the ceiling was sort of low. Again, this is a quaint hotel with plenty of quirks. These things didn't diminish my experience at all. The breakfast is ok, buffet with good choices.

The staff is really helpful and so friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again because of the location and the staff and the quaintness.

Room Tip: Get a sea view.

Our first trip to the Isle of Man back in February was made even more special by the wonderful staff at the Ascot.

Everyone was incredibly friendly and they created a lovely atmosphere.

The food was stunning, and the rooms were lovely. Very spacious and comfortable.

Definitely book a room here if you're planning a trip to the Isle of Man! They're only 5 minutes away from the ferry terminal, and so friendly and helpful! Very impressive!

We booked by telephone on Monday 9th June as we had left our campsite very disgruntled campers and a two week very uncomfortable stay and a leaking rented tent.

The Ascot offered us a double room which we booked. A very wonderful end to our stay in the Isle of Man, very welcoming and helpful staff. Accommodation was excellent and looking to return to the Island in the future and hopefully save up to stay at this wonderful hotel.
Thank you once again to the hotel staff.
