Took my Mum back to I.O.M for a trip down Memory Lane. Host - 5* service from Gill, a very warm welcome which was a continuation of the pre- trip emails. Pre planning she informed us that transport links were on the doorstep. Also advised taxi service - Lady Chauffeurs who were excellent. (See their review) Pick up from Airport...

Just come back from a week in the Isle of Man visiting family. I have visited many times and usually stay with my family but the house is getting crowded so thought I'd spoil myself a little and book myself into something along the promenade. The Bentlea was a lucky find and with the addition of good weather my stay...

I have no hesitation in endorsing the other very favourable reviews I have read about Bentlea. Indeed it was these which led me to make my booking here for a five-day stay on my first visit to the IOM. My en suite room was spotlessly clean and the bed super-comfortable. The full English breakfast was very ample and as has...

My experience of the Bentlea; Myself, my mum and her elderly auntie had been planning this trip all year, and when we actually arrived at the isle of man we were quite tired because of problems with the ferry over to the island from Liverpool. When we arrived at the Bemt Lea we were greeted by Gill who quickly introduced...

Spent two days in the Bentlea at the end of April, and Gill couldn't have made us feel more welcome. From the cake (and sandwiches!) when we arrived to the very generous breakfast we had a great stay. Great location, right on the seafront but set back from the road, a few minutes walk from the main shopping area. Whenever...

Arriving quite late on a Friday evening we were greeted by Gill our hostess who immediately showed us to our rooms. Having two young girls, she had ensured that we were in adajcent rooms, but to increase our privacy we were in a sector of the establishment separated by a fire door - so it was like having a junior...

I must say I have travelled to many countries and stayed in many hotels and guesthouses but the Bentlea is one of the best. My teenage son and myself stayed for two week in the Bentlea on the recommendation of a family member. The rooms are spotlessly clean and Gill the owner is exceptionally kind and helpful. Breakfast was changed...

I stayed at the Bentlea between July 4th - 11th and found that this was far the best guesthouse that I have stayed in. I was surprised to have a piece of chocolate cake on my arrival. I heard of this from an earlier forum entry, so you can imagine that sold me. It was a pleasure to stay there...
