Stayed here for four nights in July 2013 for our honeymoon, and what a good choice we made. We stayed in the blue room which came with a jacuzzi on a mezzanine overlooking Port Erin bay, though all rooms have roof top garden seating areas with views to die for. Bit of a pull up the hill if walking back from Port Erin but the effort is well worth it - in spades. Infinity pool, visitor lounge and garden area all beautifully done, as is the whole house, and yet we were made to feel as comfortable as in our own home. Gill and Phil are excellent hosts, very friendly, down to earth and eager to please. Lovely breakfast with home made breads and a choice of hot dishes as well as cereals and fruit etc. Unusual in that you share a large table with other guests for breakfast, albeit at a time of your own choosing. This felt a little strange at first, but we got to chat with fellow guests which actually added to our experience. Would recommend to anyone wanting to appreciate lovely surroundings, friendly conversation and a relaxed atmosphere, with the benefit of facilities you would not normally see in a B&B - more like a luxury spa really. Thanks for a lovely stay.
