“Fabulous Breakfasts!”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Had a wonderful week in the IOM. The B&B is in the perfect location for access to all the amenities you could desire for a weeks holiday. Kevin organised our Taxi from the airport which was a blessing as we were late arriving and would never have found transport in the dark! One tiny negative; we do try to save the planet but as there was no heat on we were unable to dry the towels and had clean ones daily. And, yes Mick, we found the golf clubs in the church window!

Room Tip: We had 2nd floor front room which we didn't find noisy, over looking the Villa Marina car park.

We stayed at the Devonian the second week in september Kevin Mick and Nikki were polite helpful professional and very pleasant, had a great time and food was excellent. We enjoyed our stay very much. All the staff were knowledgeable and informative about the area and never too busy to help, we are looking forward to another short visit as soon as we can.

This is a well run and comfortable B&B near the Villa Marina. In recent years we had stayed at the airport hotel and would have done this year but for the fact that they had increased their charges by 36% over the last time we went, so we checked the tripadvisor reviews and decided to stay at The Devonian. We are pleased we stayed there as the room was clean and comfortable with a newly refurbished en-suite bathroom. We were on the 2nd floor at the back, so whilst there was no view and it was a little dark it was very quiet at night. The proprietor, Kevin, was very welcoming. The breakfasts were superb and gluten free bread was provided for my partner. The Devonian is handy for the theatre, the shopping centre and the restaurants. It is a very good B&B.

Very clean and friendly, great service and good breakfast. Lovely and helpful staff Nicky & Mick, Front rooms are the best, light and sunny, back rooms a little dark, lots of stairs and can be noisy at night when other guests are coming in.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front are best, bright and sunny, back rooms dark with no sun

we stayed here in July with a group of friends went over on our motorcycles for the southern 100 had a fantastic stay room was great we were on the first floor on the front view was great could be a little noisy on a Friday and Saturday night due to revellers returning back up the hill to there homes/hotels. Just want to say a big thank you to Kevin and his wife and all the staff who made us very welcome would defiantly stay here again.

Room Tip: front rooms are big and roomy can be a little noisy as on a major route

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.

Reviewed 30 July 2013

The owner and all staff were very friendly and helpful, from my first telephone enquiry to leaving a continental breakfast for my very early departure for the ferry. All the hotel was very clean and tastefully decorated with pleasant decor and furnishings. My single room was of an adequate size, with a proper ensuite shower etc, and not a cupboard fitted into a corner, as in some hotels. There was nothing shoddy and everything worked.
The breakfast was very good.
Location is excellent, a minute's walk from the promenade. My room was at the back and quiet.
