The Isle of Man from Tip to Toe

There is something for everyone to enjoy on the Isle of Man. The Island sits in the Irish Sea, and is just 33 miles long and 13 miles wide, so is easily explored in just a few days. Join us to discover its varied landscape, Victorian engineering marvels and enchanting heritage railways.

THE ASCOT HOTEL, DOUGLAS

 

2020 will see our third visit to this family-run hotel which is set back from the Promenade, overlooking Douglas Bay. The Ascot prides itself on greeting its guests with a warm Manx welcome, comfortable rooms and good food. Bedrooms have hospitality tray and free Wi-Fi. Due to the age and layout of the building, not all bedrooms have level access from the lift as there are steps along the corridors. Coaches cannot access the front of the Hotel, so passengers are dropped off on the seafront, from where it is a short uphill walk.
