Our adult daughter was woken up to the sound of gnawing and wondered what it was. She later discovered a hole in her backpack which was next to her bed. On further examination, she found that a chocolate bar which was in a pocket in her bag had been nibbled at - obviously by a mouse. We inspected the room...

I am sorry for your experience -- and, on even closer inspection of the room in question, for my discovery of a pack of 4 craft knife blades with one missing under the area of the bed in question. A very strange situation indeed and one with which I have never had to deal in 10yrs of owning and running...

I have booked accommodation for TT 2017 back in June 2016 and those who have been to the Isle of Man during the TT racing week will know how hard it is to secure accommodation. I have used official site to place my booking where was given details to pay a holding deposit which I have done on the day....

I am very sorry for your booking experience. As the booking was made through the IOM Visitor Accommodation website and not direct to the property, I have no way of knowing why it did not come through to the property, however, I did let them know of the problem. I cannot say that we ever received a voicemail message regarding...

We have been staying at the Ballacain during TT for a few years now. Marcia is always helpfull, the cottages are great. We have tried the Old Workshop (5 bedrooms/3 bathrooms) so far and will extend to Snowdrop next year. Can't wait to come back !

Our second time staying in The Old Workshop. The cleanliness & attention to detail is second to none. The welcome pack is comprehensive. We came for a youth sporting event, the washer & dryer was a welcome point, as were 2 fridges !! Mark & Marcia have done a great job. We will be back soon.

Top marks for the accommodation and cleanliness. (The Old Workshop) Excellent place to stay. Highly recommended... but you will need a car! It was really top drawer. Peeked through the window of the other cottages on site and they also looked really excellent. The cottage had everything we needed to cater for grandparents in their late 60s, us in our...

We stayed in the quiet Corner in April and enjoyed it very much. The setting is peaceful, the cottage was very nicely done and very clean. We found little touches on our arrival -milk, butter, jam, bread, biscuits. We thought this was very thoughtful, and useful after a long journey. The owners are great and made us feel very welcome,...

The previous review is a comprehensive description of Snowdrop cottage. Family stayed in adjoining Bluebell cottage which is very similar to Snowdrop as previously described. Very nice welcoming touches on arrival. Great facilities include washing machine and dryer. Set in leafy grounds - perfect for kids to burn off some energy using swings, tree house and football equipment. Would be...
