Myself and my partner stayed at The Devonian for 6 nights from 8th-14th August 2013. The B&B is in a fabulous location, a stones throw away from Douglas promenade and local amenities such as Villa Marina (there's a lovely Indian restaurant next door too if that's your thing!) When I book a place to stay I want three things: cleanliness, friendliness and location - The Devonian had all three, the B&B was spotless from our room to the hallway and the dining room, plus Kevin the owner who dealt with us during our stay was helpful and friendly! Our room was cleaned and the bed was made everyday. If you arrive by boat like we did, it's only a 10 minute walk along the promenade or £3 in a taxi.
The only drawback I had was because we booked less than a week before our stay and got the last room on Booking.com our room was on the top floor, which isn't ideal climbing a heap of stairs after a day of exploring the Isle of Man (I'd have struggled if I was older or had trouble walking) but I didn't mind as the B&B is lovely in comparison to some shoddy establishments we have seen on our travels. Also, the WiFi had a weak connection in our room, that was only our room though as we were furthest from the routers - however, we mentioned it to Kevin and we found out that he could possibly be installing a secondary router so that's good to hear for anybody who stays in the future! We still had the chance to use the dining room downstairs if we wanted full connection.
Breakfasts served at The Devonian are worth getting out of bed for, I had pancakes and fruit with brown toast and a lovely cup of tea everyday, whereas my partner tried a wide range of the menu (his favourite being sausage and bacon on toast!) the staff who serve you of a morning are pleasant and helpful too. You can try traditional Manx kippers of a morning if that's your thing.
Overall we had a fabulous stay at The Devonian, and if I was to visit the Isle of Man again it would definitely be our B&B of choice.
