West Lodge B&B
Ranked #1 of 11 Port Erin B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 27, 2013

After my first visit last November I had no hesitation in returning in May. I felt I was coming home! Situated in easy walking distance of the sea front, shops and eateries in Port Erin, West Lodge ticks all the boxes and more. Nothing was too much trouble. The bathroom is just down the corridor with dressing gowns thoughtfully provided and the breakfast/sitting room provides all you need from an array of beverages to some of Barbara's delicious cake at supper time! Breakfast is excellent with ample choice. The bus and steam train station is near by and Port Erin bay is a beautiful setting for sunsets as well as a good starting point for coastal walks. Looking forward to my next visit!

I have been coming to the IOM and Port Erin in particular for 15 years, and of all the places I have stayed, this is the one I would choose to come back to. Barbara and Eric are the perfect hosts and make sure all their guests have everything they need, and they are prepared to put themselves out for the guests and allow them to use the kitchen and other facilities usually not available to B&B guests.

Having read the other comments, it is true that the bathroom is shared and there are no TVs in the bedroom, but these are only slight inconveniences and a little planning means everyone gets to use the bathroom in comfort. Their brochure explains exactly what is and is not offered, so you wont get any shocks. The negative comments should not detract from the warm and homely atmosphere they have created for the guests, and remember there are the little extras they provide such as the wonderful cakes supplied every night. There is free Wifi, so you can watch programmes in the room if you want to.

Their breakfasts are extensive and beautifully cooked, the bedrooms and all communal rooms are spick and span, and really the whole experience they provide is excellent. All this for just £25 or night, too.

So, if you are using this review to plan your holiday, give them a ring. You won't be disappointed if you decide to stay there ( and I was there 2 weeks) .

this is my first time travelling alone, especially in a foreign country. before i got there, i had been a bit unsure what to do and what people would be like there, but i definitely had a best holiday ever. first Eric and Barbara made me very welcomed and tried to help me to make plans that i could fit as much as in my short-stay schedule. and clean beds and lovely breakfast are much appreciated. besides, Manx are best people i have ever met, everyone is so friendly and helpful. i really would like to go this island and live in Eric & Barbara's again :)

I have stayed here 3 or 4 times over the years. Its a nice small place with friendly owners. Not bad for £25pn, but you dont get much in the room, like TV, etc and there's a shared bathroom and toilet for 5 rooms so it can be 'who gets in first', etc. Also I found the bed very short for a 5.10 tall person.

Had a lovely visit to I.OM. in May and found West Lodge to be a good clean and friendly place to stay. Eric and Barbara were excellent hosts. The lodge is well situated close to both bus stops and train station. The food provided for breakfast was very good and set us up for the day.
