Stayed at the weekend, had lovely rooms.
The hotel is split over two sites that are only 2 minutes apart one had the rooms in, the other was for dining. My only complaint was with lastminutehotels.com and not the hotel owners, I asked for a ground floor room for a person in our party who has mobility problems but the info wasn't conveyed to the hotel owners, the hotel owners tried to accommodate us but in the end the disabled person managed with a luxury first floor room. I advise calling to check before booking if you need a ground floor room.

The rooms were spacious, light airy, full of mod cons, lovely fluffy towels, shower that got hot (baths are a bit high to get in for disabled people though as they have jacuzzis in them).

TV's have subtitles, coffee/tea/cappuccino/horlicks/chocolate making facilities! Iron & board, desk area. The large luxury room had a sofa & 6ft bed, sea view.

Food was good and varied, some things were available off the menu like gammon but we didn't realise. Breakfast is cereal/fruit and cooked which you help yourself to and is free if you are staying there. You can also order off the menu such as American pancakes or Manx kippers.

I tried a Celtic Mist drink for the first time! Yummy!

Staff are lovely and friendly and very helpful.
Would stop again but would book ahead for person with mobility problems.

This was an ideal and excellent booking that ticked all the boxes for our first time visit to the beautiful IOM. Our room was so spacious, spotlessly clean, and our bed was the most comfortable I've experienced in a long while. A recently refurbished en-suite and loads of fluffy towels were really appreciated, the bathroom was cosy warm all the time. At HQ, breakfast buffet was delicious and plentiful. The waiting on staff were so attentive as were Angela and Chris our hosts. Their chef produced excellent meals. A coffee on the outdoor terrace gave a view overlooking the promenade and down to the sea front, our weather was beautiful too. We really enjoyed our stay at the Glen Mona and will come back again. We recommend to one and all this very welcoming Hotel. I wanted to stay longer! Many thanks Angela and Chris, from Francine and Michael

We have just returned from a very wet TT, however things could have been a lot worse. My husband booked for us to go to the TT very late, therefore accomodation was scare. Luckily when he rang the Glen Mona a family had just cancelled therefore we secured their family room - it was pot luck therefore we did not know what to expect. We have been to the TT several times now and stayed in Douglas everytime bar one, and the Glen Mona is the best place that we have stayed, much better than the Empress or Hilton!
The room was clean, the bed was one of the best that I have slept in whilst away from home, and the breakfast was also one of the best we have had, with plenty of choice and served until 10am. We ate in the restuarant twice and the food was excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly and we were made very welcome. We would not hesitate in recommending the Glen Mona as the place to stay in Douglas

Stayed at the Glen Mona over the Easter 2012 weekend. My last experience of the hotel in 2006 was good, things have improved since then!
Room was clean, bed comfortable, ensuite excellent with plenty of towels, tea & coffee facilities in the room.

Breakfast & other meals served in the sister Hotel 50 yards up the street, excellent buffet breakfast, best sausages I have had in a long time! Staff all friendly and accomodating.

The only downside is the lack of parking, but this is in common with all the other sea front hotels in Douglas, but at least the glen Mona has none of the pafrking restrictions in the side road(s) it is situated on that plague the sea front parking.

A good very reasonably priced hotel.

The room was very spacious with a small settee and office desk which was great as i was on business. The bed was comfy, the bathroom besides being spotless had a great power shower and a fabulous jacuzzi bath.

Spent week-end in Douglas, isle-of-man my first time, arrived on the Friday following a short aer arann flight from Dublin got the bus from the airport to douglas which took less than 30 minutes after about a ten walk from bus stop arrived at b & b had to register in there sister b & b got key and got a lovely room with all the facilities of any hotel. Given a code for the main entrance which meant you could leave yourself in and out at any time. Got breakfast each morning in there sister b & b all in all this b & b offers excellent value for money. I would suggest that the breakfast finishing at 9 a.m would not suit everyone.
