Lovely hotel on the boulevard. We didnt book a seaview room but got it because it wasnt occupied. So we got a free upgrade. Breakfast is generous. Staff is friendly and willingly to the help. Room was nice and cleaned nicely everyday. The only downpoint was the early check out (before 10)

Stayed: October 2013, travelled as a couple

We loved this hotel, the hosts were very gracious, the hotel was well run and clean. The location is right on the Promenade; it was close to the shopping street and restaurants. Breakfasts were great, loved the smoked salmon.

Room Tip: If stairs are a problem, make sure you notify the owners as there is no lift.

Stayed for two nights, received a friendly welcome on arrival, we arrived early but were allowed to check into our rooms as they were ready, much appreciated. I had a single room with a beautiful sea view, very clean and comfy. Availed of the cooked breakfast in the mornings - set you up for the day ahead. Staff couldn't have been more helpful. Would happily recommend.

Found the B&B easily but parking was a bit of a challenge! The area along the prom allows for 2 hour parking between 8am and 6pm so as long as you're out during the day it should not be a problem. After your 2 hours you need to move your car across the street or beyond the nearest set of traffic lights!! Anyway, check in was easy and we quickly got set up in our room which was a little small but we were not planning to spend too much time there so no big deal. Bed was very comfortable so slept very well. Breakfasts were more than ample to set you up for the day! Wifi was pretty good too. Only issue was that the over the sink bathroom light and shaver point didn't work as it seemed there was a loose connection. Would definitely recommend this B&B for a trip to Douglas.

Could not fault anything at all. Okay -We had the room with a view of a brick wall but this was not a problem to us as we were there for a few days only and spent little time in the room during daylight. Did not detract from enjoyment.
Spotlessly clean, Bed very comfortable. Good storage.Good shower with good quality products. Lots of tea, coffee and biscuits plus that 3 legged chocolate in the room. Good location for getting about.
Breakfast was first class. Choice and service excellent.
Had evening meal one night and only fault was the portion size. It was( like the breakfast ) enormous. But it was all delicious and of a quality equal to the best we had on the island and good choice as well.
Paul and Paula and their family and staff really friendly and genuine people. Nothing too much trouble. Very knowledgeable. Would certainly come back-already looked at couple of dates and full so others must agree!

Room Tip: If you want a view avoid Room 11 but apart from that nothing wrong with the room at all.

Chose this B&B because of it's No.1 status on tripadvisor and it is exactly how others have described it. Welcoming, friendly, lush breakfasts that set us up for the day, refreshments in the room and a lovely touch with a "3 legged" chocolate to have with your coffee. Our room had the most comfortable beds and were nicely decorated although the décor could have done with being "freshened up" but it was clean and very cosy. Helpful and friendly staff who couldn't do enough for you including printing our boarding passes for our return flights. We didn't use the free Wi-Fi that was available. The hotel is ideally sited for buses, shops, bars and fabulous walks along the prom. Would stay again!

Room Tip: Our room was to the rear with no view (which we chose) a little noisy for a short period of time whe...

Stayed here last night on a work trip to the Isle of Man. Very friendly welcome, even apologising for the bad weather spoiling the view outside!! Great room. Clean, comfortable and free wi-fi. Lovely views despite the rain! Friendly and efficient breakfast service and very quick and easy check out. All in all very satisfied and would happily stay here again.
