“How to do vintage well”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

Before I talk about the many wonderful attributes of this B&B I want to say that it starts with the hosts - Dan and Lou. You will not come across a friendlier, warmer couple who have in effect welcomed you into their home (and you will meet the rest of the family during your stay). Full of smiles and good humour they make Raymond's a pleasure to stay in and you will definitely pick up on the feel good atmosphere. They have designed and beautifully restored a nineteenth century house with a couple of period (but very on-trend) bedrooms, all very carefully thought out and,I suspect, with Lou's touch and talent for colour. You will sleep very well (the house is situated in a very quiet square a stone's throw from Douglas promenade). You will also eat very well. The breakfasts are magnificent with lots of local product which Dan will be happy to tell you all about its provenance. You may not need lunch! Thank you Dan and Lou for sharing your home with us. We'll see you again soon.

Myself and my partner stayed in Raymond's for 4 nights . It was fantastic , I can't even describe this place , the attention to detail on everything is out of this world
Dan and Lou are very friendly and warm and welcoming . Nothing is a hassle for them
.
We stayed in room 2 , so tastefully decorated and has every thing you would ever need and more, it has it's own private bathroom just down the hall. There is a breakfast room down stairs , which has fridge , tea and coffee facility's , sofas , sky TV ( which you also have in your rooms )

Raymond's is situated a short walk from the sea front . Has on street parking outside .

We will defo be back , I've been telling everyone about it .
Fantastic :-)

Really enjoyed my stay here although a word of warning, you will put on weight if you stay here! The cooked breakfasts are very good. I had the full Manx breakfast on the 1st day, manx kippers on the second and then smoked salmon & eggs on my last day. All freshly prepared and very high standard.
If you want somewhere quieter away from the noisy bars, this is an excellent place to stay. The shops are only a short walk away and you can take a very pleasant walk away from busy roads along a footpath via the bowling green and down to the Villa Marina.

We were fortunate to have stayed with Dan and Lou over the first May long weekend in 2014, and were blown away with how warm and welcoming they were. The finer details of the home was amazing and having titles above the rooms of 'Family' and 'Friends" really does truly reflect how you feel once you arrive.

We stayed in Room 2 for 2 nights and could not have asked for more. The room was lovely, the bed very comfy and the breakfast delicious (My wife absolutely loved the Island sausages!)

If we visit the island again, I wouldn't hesitate to return and recommend it to any travelling couple for leisure or business.

23rd-27th April 14 ... Our 2nd stay at the Isle of Mans finest B&B. As this was a return visit, I thought I already knew this place was fabulous and knew what to expect! How wrong was I. Dan and Lou the B&B is an absolute credit to you. Attention to detail is nothing short of amazing! Our bedroom .. Room 1 is beautiful, spotlessly clean and so elegant .. Perfect! Breakfasts .. Gorgeous! Full breakfasts or breakfast of your choosing. Eggs cooked to your liking .. poached/fried. Nothing too much trouble! Cereals, juice, yoghurts, cereals bars and fruit all readily available! I will not comment on who's breakfast was best!! Equally perfect! Located 5 mins walk to Douglas promenade and 10 mins walk to TT Grandstand. I would recommend this B&B over any hotel, as you would never get a more a more personable but professional service with such warm, friendly and comfortable accommodation! I'll see you soon ... Very soon. Kelly&Paul

This is by far the best B&B I have stayed in, The lovely couple running this family run B&B are Dan and Lou they make you feel so welcome. I stayed in room 2 for four nights and it was a lovely room and spotlessly clean with everything you need to make your stay relaxing, The breakfast was brilliant and nothing is to much trouble for them, they look after all your needs and make you feel at home. What is so nice about Raymond's is you can use the guest lounge any time of the day or night and make a yourself cupper if you feel like one. I will definitely will be back when I'm in the Isle of Man next.......

This is by far the best B & B we have ever stayed in. Dan and Lou, along with their children are the perfect hosts and make you feel so welcome!! The guests lounge is fantastic, complete with roaring fire and our bedroom and bathroom were absolutely perfect, spotlessly clean and very well equipped. We just can't rate it high enough. We will definitely return and will recommend to friends and family. A truly very special place to stay!!!
