I have stayed at The Devonian on a number of occasions and every time am met by the owners Kevin and/or Gillian. They are lovely people so welcoming and nothing is to much trouble. The rooms are all excellent with everything you would expect from a well run B & B. The breakfast menu is second to none and the...

We stayed for one night on our taster weekend to the IOM! What a lovely place, perfect location, lovely room and lovely friendly hosts. The breakfast was such a treat with way too much choice and all delicious....will definitely be going back when the season starts properly :)

I stayed here while I was working in Douglas. The check-in was easy (Gillian emailed me the door code and left the key in an envelope for me, as I arrived after she'd left for the day), and the room was a nice size, very clean and nicely decorated. I didn't have breakfast while I was staying, but it smelt...

We had three nights here in September and were pleasantly surprised - comfortable room and all the breakfast you could ever want, great location not far from local amenities and the Douglas high street. We had a room on the 3rd floor so be warned that there are no lifts, and lugging a toddler's paraphernalia up and down three flights...

Fantastic B&B with such friendly helpful and welcoming owners Kevin and Gillian, who arranged a lower floor room as requested, and sorted a taxi from the airport for us at the last minute, after we'd made a mistake with our email. Clean modern room with comfortable bed. Great quality free WiFi. Fabulous delicious breakfast with great choice and even allowing...

The hotel is small and cosy, in the middle of refurbishment but still clean and tidy. The room was clean with good facilities and wi fi. It is not suitable for disabled people as access is by way of stairs.

As bed and breakfasts go this place is typical. Nice and clean, not far from the main shopping areas and very near to the villa marina. Breakfast was as expected and plenty of it. Douglas is quite run down in areas and has lots of down market tat shops. It doesnt attract the high end market. A decent meal will...

I was researching aspects of WW1 internment on the island. I couldn't have found a better place to stay. My room wonderfully comfy and clean. Breakfast exemplary, and Kevin did perfect scrambled eggs. Will return.

This is a Bed and Breakfast on four floors with no lift so you must be prepared to walk up stars (13 to the "lowest" room. It is very convenient for the Villa Marina where I was working and the promenade (and buses) are only two minutes away. I was in a single room which was small with not a...
