The B and B is beautifully situated overlooking the bay of Port Erin. We stayed in the burgundy room, perhaps one of the smaller rooms but beautifully appointed and with its own terrace. Steps away from our room, my favourite - the indoor pool. The breakfast choice is fantastic.

Recently stayed here with my partner just for two nights. I can honestly say it was one of the best places I have ever stayed. We stayed in the Lilac room, absolutely beautiful, comfortable and with all the features to make our stay that bit extra special. The facilities such as the pool and the hot tub made our visit...

Jill did a favor for us so we could go enjoy ourselves and refused to take any compensation. The breakfasts were made to order and all the food was wonderful. Her breads were a joy in the morning. We also ordered the pate platter so we would not have to find dinner the night we arrived. Just like breakfast, the...

Even better than imagined. Our stay was delectable and really a lovely experience. The room was clean, the pool was relaxing and the atmosphere was just great. The cat was a lovely added bonus! Grab a bottle of champagne and spend the night in the jacuzzi, I can't think of a better evening spent with a partner.

Picking up the keys the night before was easy and we were lucky that we could leave our bags the night before too. Breakfast is included and we enjoyed a home cooked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Arches is a boutique B & B that enjoys wonderful views and faciities. It is a B & B rather than a Hotel because it is our home as opposed to the mass produced places where a guest can sleep , as opposed to a place that is worth visiting in it's own right. The indoor heated swimming pool , guest lounge and guest terraces and balconies give plenty of scope for a romantic break or simply an oportunity to rest and relax. ... more   less
