“Quality Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 September 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Inglewood in July just after the TT Races. We had a beautiful room on the first floor with a lovely bay window with balcony overlooking the sea. Couldn't fault the room at all, very roomy, good quality furniture and the bathroom was exceptionally well appointed with high quality towels.
Andy and Pip were wonderful operators, friendly, helpful with what to see and do in Douglas and the good quality breakfasts were served in a very nice breakfast room.
The best part of the hotel was the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on and we have stayed in many 5 star hotels around the world.
We stayed for 3 nights of our 6 night stay on the Isle of Man and regret that we didn't stay for the 6 nights at the Inglewood as it was far better than where we stayed on the other side of the Island.

Room Tip: If you can, book the room on the first floor with the bay window and balcony looking out to the sea.

My wife and I stayed here during mid August when the IoM is very quiet. As other reviewers have said it is quite a long way along the promenade so be prepared for a walk or use the buses but on the flip side car or motorcycle parking is easy.

This was a strange hotel to summarise and I find myself caught between 3 and 4 point rating. I have favoured 4 because everyone involved is lovely to talk to and couldn't be more helpful.

We stayed in room which did not have a sea view on one of the upper floors. Be warned there are a lot of stairs to reach the top floor. The room itself had plenty of room, with mostly good quality furniture with oak style furniture. Only the wardrobe let the side down as it wasn't as robust as it could have been. The bathroom however was exemplary with beautiful fixtures and fittings and should be commended and was kept supplied with possibly the best towels I have used in a hotel - bloomin marvellous. Admittedly our view was of a back of a building - but frankly we had seen plenty of the sea before returning to it.

Breakfast is served on the ground floor and was very good. Good quality food and ingredients and served with a smile - a lovely experience.

On the downside the corridors and breakfast area felt very 1980's Blackpool guest house in terms of it's decor (not in a nice way) and the rooms had plywood doors of some sort that are not worthy of a hotel of this sort. So mixed feelings....

As I said - the service was good so rated at 4 points. But would I stay again...probably not....

Room Tip: Just ask about the floor level and how many flights of stairs lead to your room.

Just finished our second stay at the Inglewood, and we are already looking forward to our next visit.

Andy and Pip are excellent hosts and can't do enough to help. The sea view bedroom was large, airy, comfortable and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was, as usual, delicious.

A truly relaxing place to stay, and an excellent base from which to enjoy the island.

My hubby and I stayed here for eight days and in all our years of travelling round can honestly say its the best B & B we have stayed at. Our booking was handled very efficently and all subsequent queries we had before arriving were dealt with promptly. We received a warm welcome from Pip and Andy which continued throughout our whole stay. They are very friendly warm people and nothing is too much trouble for them.

I would recommend the Ingelwood for a number of reasons:

Location - about a five minute drive from the ferry port and easy to find as its on the promenade and has a lit neon? green sign. About 10 minute walk from the centre of Douglas but there are bus and horse tram stops outside if you don't fancy the walk. There is a nice pub nearby - the Queens and some restaurants where we ate (I have done seperate entries for these ) . The electric tram is only about 5 minutes walk away. There is a SPAR nearby where you can get cash back. The views of the harbour and bay are lovely and there are seats on the promenade if you fancy just chilling out and watching the world go by.

The B & B - when you open the door you are greeted by a fresh clean smell, no mustiness, damp or kippers ! There is a large lounge with plenty of seating, which has a lovely view of the harbour. The cafe where you can have a coffee/tea or some cold drinks. Hubby was impressed by the selections of whiskies on offer as well as a good choice of other alcoholic drinks. You MUST try Pip's home made cakes - they go well with the hot chocolates ! There was a reception desk with lots of leaflets, maps etc which were very useful.

Our Room We stayed in room 9 which was one of the medium sized rooms. It had a full wardrobe and an iron and ironing board. A chest of drawers with a proper sized hairdryer and two comfy easy chairs. There was a tv and dvd player (there were dvd's to borrow ). The bed was very comfy, great mattress and was perfect for my hubby who has a dodgy back. The shower cubical was of a good size and the room, bedding and towels were all very clean.

The breakfasts - My goodness what a choice. There were cereals and fruit juice laid out and you were shown to your table and given an extensive menu to choose from - which included, freshly made fruit salad, yoghurt and honey, muesli, porridge (plain or with honey and banana - had this twice really good) , continental - fruit and yoghurt, croissant with cheese and ham and one of Pip's scrummy fruit and nut muffins, full fry up, kippers either whole or filleted (had the fillets twice and NO BONES - really recommended) etc . Considering the B & B has 16 rooms - the efficiency at breafast was to be commended. It was great to have a freshly cooked breakfast rather than selecting stuff that had been on a hot plate for ages.

Our ferry wasn't leaving till the afternoon but Andy was happy to store our luggage and motorbike gear for us until we were ready to leave

This B & B really deserves to be number 1 and really would recommend it as a place to stay.

My wife and I have just enjoyed an 8 day visit to the Inglewood and I must report that I have rarely stayed in a B & B or hotel which gets anywhere near the standard of this one. There is nothing that I could possibly complain about; the room was spacious, clean and expensively furnished. The bed was very comfortable and the large en-suite well laid out and looked brand new.
The breakfast menu was extensive and quickly cooked to order and you can have as much as you like. The bar has a good stock of beers and spirits and prices are reasonable.
The location is good too. Parking is on the road but it's free and fairly easy to find a spot close by. It's also only a 15 minute walk to the TT Grandstand
Pip and Andy do their utmost to make your stay as comfortable as possible and rightly deserve continuing success with their business.
Would we stay there again ? Oh yes.

Had four lovely nights here whilst watching the Classic TT. Hosts were really welcoming and treated us as though we were old friends. Breakfasts were fantastic.

I'd highly recommend this place if you're looking for somewhere to stay on the Isle Of Man

We had a lovely bright spacious room number 12. Breakfast very filling and lots of choice on the menu.
Would definitely stay here again. Coffee and home made cake served in the bar during the day should you feel a little peckish.
