I stayed here for two days in March 2012 on a quick stopover in the Isle of Man while crossing from England to Ireland. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the IOM.
The location is excellent - right on the Promenade in Douglas, but outside the busiest area further towards the ferry wharf which has parking restrictions (so you can park your hire car outside or across the road and leave it there if you want to walk somewhere). The shopping streets in Douglas are about 10-15 mins walk down the Promenade, but there are restaurants and other shops all along the promenade including some nearby.
The hosts, Pip and Andy, were both friendly, lovely and immensely helpful, providing me with all the information I would need to travel around the island and see the sights. They are genuinely interested in their guests and both of them took the time to talk to me and ask me about my life and my travels.
My room (which was a couple of floors up at the back, and although no sea view it didn't matter as it was nice and quiet and Douglas was covered in sea mist anyway while I was there!) was a joy to stay in and was very clean and very spacious. There were several choices for the free hot breakfast (including cooked English breakfast and a continental breakfast (which I had)) along with cereal, juice and coffee, and lots to eat, all fresh and tasty. Nothing was any trouble.
There is Wi-Fi in the lounge on the ground floor and on the day I arrived Wi-Fi was in the process of being installed in the rooms. Hopefully it will be up and running some time this year.
The price paid was fantastic value for money too.
If you are going to the Isle of Man and staying in Douglas, definitely consider this hotel - it was fantastic and I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone else. The Isle of Man is a beautiful place which is very underrated, and this is a great place to base yourself while there.
The hotel is an older-style hotel (though all the rooms are all modern) so there are quite a lot of...
