“Terrible accommodations.”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Rooms were very dated and smelled musty, had bugs, very noisy. Mattresses were of the cheapest quality and the sheets were not changed once over our 12 day stay. There are no phones, ice machine, food or beverage vending machines, no pubs or restaurants within walking distance. You are so far away only 1 take out place will deliver and you have to give your order to reception for them to place your order! The cost per night would have got you a suite at the Ritz with $$ left over for lunch. Stay away from this place.

my wife and I spent 5 nights from 5th/10th August 2013.The accomodation was first class,clean quiet and the staff were very attentive.The motel is 10 minutes from Douglas 20 minutes from Peel and 25 minutes from Port Erin about 15 minutes from the airport.The grounds are well kept loads of parking.Breakfast is served between 7am/10am in your room.About 10 minutes away is the Whitestone pub which provides fantastic meals a very friendly environment.We are booked again for next year.well worth a visit.

we did not know what to expect as the ratings were a little off putting, But to put the record straight , we arrived early and Terry and his wife greeted us and said he has a room ready for us, we didnt expect it to be ready, but he explained he had a cancellation so we could have room 16 if we wanted, we of course said yes, as we had arrived on the overnight ferry, Terry Then asked us if we had been to the TT before, and we said no, he told us to go and get a rest for an hour and settle in, Then he came back later and said he would run us to Bradden Bridge to watch the first race, we was amazed that he would do that for us, The bus strike caused us some inconvenience, The next day Terrys wife stopped at the bus stop and ran us to Douglas( what a great gesture again) The manx People were brilliant, we even had locals stop and pick us up. The Santon is a little out of the way, not that far if the buses were regular but that was beyond Terrys control. The room was great, cleaned everyday and they are very helpful and polite The Santon is in a lovely area, if you can get a room round the back like we did you wont be disappointed, Plenty of parking space, we loved it, Well done to Terry and your Family, keep up the good work From Steve Sanderson and Gill.

Room Tip: number 16 round the Back, Brilliant.

Reception times are long, 8am-11pm. Staff are friendly & helpful. We had no mobile while over there and buses were on strike for the first half of our trip, they had no problem calling taxis for us. Room was spacious but a little outdated. Breakfast was very simple, croissant & bread roll heated up with a juice box and a piece of fruit. Only down side was the "shower" and this "unlimited hot water". It was a bath tube with a rubber shower head hose attached to the taps. Don't turn the cold water on, just use hot water and you will have a warm wash. As we stayed during TT we had to wake up at 6am to make sure we got a warm wash.

I spent a long weekend here in April with a few friends. We were interested to discover the many glens etc. sprawled across the island.

Despite the basic amenities of the motel, the room was clean, the staff friendly, with the spacious garden area and pleasant atmosphere making my stay ideal. I will most likely come here again, and would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a quiet, well-situated motel with plenty of room for car-parking.
