Inglewood
Ranked #3 of 36 Douglas B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 30, 2012

I have now stayed at the Inglewood twice this year. On both occasions, it has been an excellent experience.
I visit the Isle of Man on a regular basis for business, and have at last found somewhere that I am truly happy to recommend. I would also choose to stay here for leisure reasons too, if on the island.
Pip and Andy are warm and friendly hosts. The rooms are clean, spacious and modern. The beds are comfortable.
There are some good restaurants a short walk away, and the bar is available in the hotel for a drink on my return. The choice and quality of food for breakfast is also excellent.
There is not one point I can raise as a negative or a concern, and I'll be booking here for visits next year.

We are regular visitors to the IoM and decided to try the Inglewood on the basis of its excellent reviews. At last we found somewhere welcoming, comfortable and well looked-after, as indeed we were. Pip and Andy were extremely helpful when our friend's flight was cancelled at short notice. The room quality was that of a top class hotel, without being impersonal, and was elegantly furnished and immaculately clean. Pip and Andy are lovely people, who clearly care about what they do.

This establishment was highly recommended by other travellers and was No 1 on the Isle of Man according to Trip Advisor so I decided to book a room.
I duly sent an email query off and received a friendly, crisp reply by return. So far so good.
The welcome I received by Pippa, the co owner, was friendly and extremely professional. She has the art of making guests feel 'at home' perfected. Any and all questions were knowledgeably answered.
My room was spacious with a separate seating area adjoining the bedroom. It was clean and the small shower/toilet immaculately presented. There are tea making facilities and a modern flat panel TV is mounted on the wall opposite the bed. The view from the two windows was uninspiring. It faced other windows approximately twenty feet away. The view if you have a room at the front is quite beautiful but these were all taken.
Downstairs there is a comfortable sitting room overlooking the promenade and bay. Next to it a bar which is open in the evening. At the back a spacious and clean dining area where breakfast is served.
A variety of breakfasts are on offer including Manx kippers and a full English breakfast all ably managed by Pipas's husband Andy. These are cooked to a high standard.
What are the negatives?
If you are looking for a regular hotel type environment with large reception areas, concierges etc then this is not for you. This is bed and breakfast accommodation. That said, it was the first time in thirty years I had stayed at this type of accommodation and I was pleased I chose it.
There is no lift. This means if you are elderly and/or infirm it could be a major problem. Going up five steep flights of steps is not a problem if you are fit but in the first few hours it was quite daunting. That said one becomes 'aclimatised' very quickly!
Parking. It can be extremely difficult finding a space in the street directly outside Inglewood particularly in the evening. You might have to park a couple of minutes walk down the road. So not a major problem but something guests should be aware of.
The positives?
A clean, well run establishment by a friendly, decent and hard working couple who welcome you into their 'house' (they live in the basement).
The cost is fair for the quality of room and food. It is in a good location with a wide variety of restaurants within walking distance.
It is sited on an island that has so much natural beauty and yet the world at large is unaware of it. If you want to go and 'chill out' this is a great place and Inglewood is a good base to explore from.
The owners are only to happy to help and offer advice in order to make your holiday/stay enjoyable.
Summing up: It justifiably deserves its good reputation and rating. All in all.....Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Ask if they have a room at the front available. It may cost more but it is worth it

Gorgeous room. Everything is updated, including the bathroom. Nice leather couch, amazing ocean view. Uncluttered, comfortable, clean, fresh. Excellent location right on the main Promenade, quick walk to the charming Electric Railway and the shops and restaurants in the heart of Douglas. Lots of choices for breakfast, nearly everything you could think of. Good quality food, cooked to order. Friendly and accommodating hosts helped me make the most of my visit. It was also fun to meet up with the other guests at the bar in the evening. From my overall visit, I believe this is the best hotel on the Isle of Man!

A lovelly hotel in a great position, we asked fir a sea veiw and boy did we get one, right across Douglas Bay. The room was very well appointed clean and airy. I was travelling with my 87 year old grandmother who has seen and done it all and even she was impressed. Andy and Pip are great hosts who can't do enough for you and give a mean restaurant reccomendation, when i am able to return to he beautiful and surprising Isle of Man i will definatly stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea veiw, its glorious. If you have trouble walking the stairs are hard work ask for a fir...

We received a wonderful warm welcoome from Pip and Andy, for whom nothing was too much trouble. The room at the front overlooking Douglas Bsy was beautifully fitted out - large airy, with a fine en suite shower. The furniture was great, and the bedding fresh, clean, & crisp.
a really lovely place to stay.

Room Tip: Room at front on first floor
