Reviewed 17 July 2012

Our week at Arrandale was great. Owners Theo and Rose were most welcoming. Food was excellent and abundant. Room was comfortable and clean with tea and coffee making facilities. En-suite with large shower and lovely soft towels.View from windows right over the bay to the harbour and beyond. Shops and attractions fairly easily accessable from hotel, though hilly, but this is the case with most hotels unless on the front.
Would recommend Arrandale as friendly and welcoming to anyone looking to visiting IOM.
Thank you Theo, Rose and Laura the friendly waitress.

Great Hotel located towards the back of town, bit of a walk from the centre but it’s all downhill in the morning.

Incredibly friendly and helpful staff for whom nothing is too much trouble. Amazing breakfasts with lots of choice to set you up for a day on the Isle of Man.

I had a room on the top floor which meant quite a climb up the stairs, but the reward was stunning views over Douglas bay and the capital.

The room was small and compact, but perfectly adequate. The bathroom was again small but very clean and well kept.

Positives:
Friendly staff
Good Food
Excellent views
Comfortable, quiet rooms


Neutrals
The room was quite small, but this was one of the cheapest rooms I could find in Douglas when booking so I wasn’t expecting anything massive.
The double bed was very comfy and spacious for one, but it would have been very cosy for two!

Negative (being picky here)
It is a bit of a way out of the town centre, and uphill of an evening (though you can get a bus to above the hotel and walk down)

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floors have the best views, but as there is no lift may not be great for everyone.

I booked this hotel (it's a B&B really) on the strength of tripadvisor reviews. How wrong most of them are, or the place is being judged against low standards. I can't fault the staff for service and enthusiasm (although they do get left to it at night and breakfast) and breakfast was ok but the room I had was just terrible. Perhaps the more you pay the better room you get, but even at £60 B&B there is no excuse for mouldy bathrooms, dated decor, amateurish diy and carpets that had not seen a vacuum cleaner in recent history. I couldn't wait to leave and I will never return!

I have just stayed in the Arrandale on my first visit to the Isle of Man, and will defiantly stay in the Arrandale again as the staff are very friendly and welcoming and the accommodation was superb and ideally located close to Douglas seafront and town, breakfast and evening meals were also excellent.

Staff were all very friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable and the breakfasts really good. Evening meals were superb and much appreciated after a long day out. We will definitely stay here again on our future visits to the TT.

Stayed at the Arrandale for B&B. Lovely people and very well looked after. Manx breakfast was superb and the Arrandale had unexpected evening meals and bar which was very welcome.

Highly recommended.

This was my 5th visit to the Isle of Man and each time I have stayed at The Arrandale.
The reasons for my continued re-booking are that the hotel is in a great location with fantastic views due to the elavated position on Hutchison Square which is only a short walk to the sea front with shops and amenities.
The owners Rose and Theo are first class hosts who always make sure you are well catered for. All the staff are friendly and helpful with no request being too much trouble.
Great accommodation with hearty breakfasts at excellent rates.
