Couldn't have been more convenient for our purpose (visiting the Beer Festival), situated directly opposite the Villa Marina. Booked a twin but actually got a triple, so a bigger room than expected. Beds are very comfortable. Nathan was very helpful

I can only endorse the positive comments made by previous contributors. The Athol House is friendly, clean, good value, and only a hundred yards from the sea front at Douglas. A full breakfast is available, and will set you up for the day. It's a great base to explore Douglas, and the rest of this fascinating island.

Good location very near the esplanade and within easy walking distance of the main part of the town, bars, restaurants and shops. Clean room and comfortable bed. Very helpful and friendly staff. Didn't try the breakfast but it smelt good.

The room is quite big and warm. We can see the sea through the window!The hotel is close to the street where food and shops can be found. Also not far from the steam train station and sea terminal. It should be a nice choice for a group of friends to spend a holiday~

Thank you Samantha for your positive comments - we are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us so much. We have a Victorian building set over three floors and we do not have a lift we always try to place guests on the lowest available floor if requested.

I was only in the Island for one night and needed comfortable and convenient accommodation not too far from the Sea ~Terminal and convenient for the centre of Douglas. Athol House met my needs in every way with clean and comfortable accommodation and a great welcome from the management. I would certainly stay there again.

So. I look up bed and breakfast hotels - because I wanted bed AND breakfast, up comes Athol House 'a family run bed and breakfast', I go to the price and availability page and it sends me to Booking.com in the description it says 'a home cooked breakfast is served each morning...' - this looks fine, just what I want,...

We would like to invite anyone reading this review to view our listing on Booking.com where they will clearly see breakfast is listed as £7.50 extra. It is right next to the button you click to "book" the room in large black lettering so not a secret at all!!!! We feel it is a shame the lady was confused by...

The Athol House is lovely, set in an old period building. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the host Ashley is fantastic! She is very friendly and efficient, the service is 110%. I have been staying at the Athol for several nights a month or more since Nov 2015 and I receive a fantastic warm welcome on every arrival!

Reviewed 11 December 2015

The property is old but unusually well-kept. My single room was smallish but spotlessly clean with a good-sized bathroom, huge fluffy towel and very comfortable bed. The host Ashley (I hope I have her spelling correct) was charming and very helpful. Didn't have time for breakfast. Very close to promenade and shops. For my overnighter purposes, it was perfect.
