    Superb

    very relaxing - good attentive staff and very clean pleasant rooms - very helpful with our bikes allowing us to store in a secure annex - good with local info.

    whilst the hotel was good I thought the daily rate was a bit steep for a twin.

    the rooms were clean although there seem to be work being undertaken

    Good

    The bedroom was of a good size and we had plenty of room to move around.

    The steps leading up to the front door which were deep and without a handrail.

    Very good

    Very friendly staff, breakfast was lovely and the attached bar and resturant was lovely

    Currently covered in scaffolding so there was no view and you had workmen outside your bedroom window from 8am with music playing loudly.

    Fabulous

    Very friendly staff, excellent food and real ale bar. Good location. Hotel decorated nicely throughout.

    There was some noise from the bar. The room was a little cold at night.

    Guest rating

    The owners of the hotel were very friendly and helpful with advice.

    The bed had a very soft mattress and the sofa was also uncomfortable. The breakfast was disappointing after the rave reviews on the website. I don't think this hotel was worth the money I paid.

    Fabulous

    warm & friendly, good real ale in bar, food good & hearty

    steepish hill, further from centre than we wanted. Not easy to find as most roads had no street names.

    Superb

    Very competent and attentive staff. A jacket had been left and the owner met us at another town on the island to return it - how's that for service and it was all done with a smile. Food was well presented and prepared. Bathroom and bedrooms obviously recently decorated and very tastefully done.

    One minor comment but it could be a positive - rooms were too warm but that was easily resolved by turning the heating off!

    Fabulous

    My room was spacious and comfortable, the iron and ironing board tucked away in the wardrobe was a good idea. The people working there were friendly and helpful and nicely informal.Breakfasts were good but the real treat was the quality of food served in the evening, generous portions, good presentation and top-class cooking.

    Although it's convenient for the promenade, it does tend to suffer somewhat in terms of location from the presence of a number of run-down, closed hotels, but that's not the fault of the Mereside and I imagine they would only be too happy to see everywhere else up and running.

    Fabulous

    The courtesy on arrival, the willingness to assist in any way, the staff being prepared to "go the extra mile" to help and accomodate.

  • 9.6
    Exceptional

    Friendly and helpful atmosphere from the owner and his staff. Hotel completely refurbished to a high standard. Even has a brand new Lift. Cosy with only 8 rooms (before rebuild was 22 rooms). Food very good.

    Fabulous

    Quiet location just off the promenade, convenient for shops promenade and facilities. Safe bicycle storage in secure room or locked to railing off the road on bar decking. Excellent breakfast with plenty of choice .

    Up a short but steep incline - not suitable for wheelchair users. Little/no space for parking outside. Some noise from main bar/restaurant below on most evenings until 11.00pm. The rest of the time very quiet.

    Very good

    Friendly staff, pretty central, went to catch up with old friends on the IOM - all in all pretty good.
