“A fantastically friendly, quality B&B”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

We have stayed at the Patchwork B&B twice and eaten there on numerous occasions. The room we stayed in is delightful. The breakfast we ate is, according to the menu, award winning, and I can well believe it. There is an extensive choice of food on offer and it is excellent value for money. The welcome is friendly in this delightful little B&B / Cafe, a real gem in the pretty harbour town of Port St. Mary.
Thoroughly recommended!

Room Tip: The double at the front, if it is available. Sea views.

As other people have said, there was plenty of choice for breakfast. Everyone was very friendly. I'd happily recommend Patchwork to others. We'll be back.

The location is just right, handy for the Co-Op, free parking across the road and - if we'd been there in the summer, just up the hill from Chapel Bay, a long sandy beach.

Really couldn't wish for a more friendly welcome and family atmosphere. The rooms were comfortable and well furnished - with a great view of Port St Mary harbour. Breakfasts were very tasty and freshly cooked with plenty of choice and goodly size portions. An ideal B & B for anyone who wants to stay on the Isle of Man.

The B&B forms part of a row of shops at the top of Port St Mary, with ready access on foot to the rail and bus network, and free public parking within 100m. A homely cafe is onsite (with plentiful breakfast portions and choices), with other eating options and a mini-supermarket close-by. The hosts are very personable and welcoming, and the cafe a hub for relaxed local social activity. If you value somewhere that will give you a window into Manx life and people, as well as a comfortable room and hearty breakfast, I'd firmly recommend Patchwork. It's also an ideal base for the Southern 100 and other racing on the Billown circuit.

What a lovely place, Patchwork is a small friendly guesthouse with a delicious menu of freshly home cooked food. The Ashcrofts are friendly and very accommodating; Adrienne lovingly prepares the menu every morning, whilst Rich is an excellent raconteur at the front of house!

Unfortunately we missed out on the scrummy set menu film club evening that happens every Thursday evening (they are so popular that you have to book weeks in advance) but Rich generously offered to squeeze us in at the back so we could watch the movie.

There are some really thoughtful touches - fresh coffee and a cafetiere in the bedroom, a bowl of water on the pavement for dogs, a fantastic bicycle for selling ice creams along the prom, home made soda bread ... next time I am on the Isle of Man I will go out of my way to revisit.

My wife and I popped in for lunch on a Saturday and found that the staff are all very friendly and all the food is at very reasonable prices. Our lunch was great and clearly homemade. Plenty of inside seating provided and also a couple of outside seats were available and have a water bowl provided for those people with dogs that are happy to sit outside and eat with their pets etc. There is Ample parking close by. The beach is only a short walk away. When in the area you should really pop in for a bit to eat. I believe they also do special events in the evening sometimes dinner with a movie etc.

I have not stayed in the guest house side however I am sure it will be very good and you will be made very welcome by the friendly owners.
