The Garden apartment is a recently refurbished ground floor apartment in a quiet area of upper Douglas.

Well-located apartment. Ideal for a short stay for one person or a couple. Ample disc parking.

This apartment provides comfortable accommodation and is ideally located in a quiet Square in the centre of Douglas.

The front lounge, overlooking the Square's gardens, provides a pleasant place to relax. The kitchen was roomy and well-equipped, although still has no teaspoons!

Some points raised by other reviewers have been addressed, in particular we were pleased to find milk, bread and cereals etc on arrival but the wifi still only works intermittently. We found that we could access the internet for only a few minutes in any given hour during our 4 - day visit.







Exzellente Unterkunft

We enjoyed the location of the flat as it was a short walk to shops, restaurants, museums and cinemas. The flat offers a good size living room and kitchen/dining area. The kitchen is well-equipped. However, we were disappointed by the state of cleanliness (there were hairs in the bathroom, crumbs on the table cloth, smelly kitchen towels) and the smell of humidity. For a 4 star rated accommodation, we expected, if not a welcome basket, at least for the place to be warm when we arrived. It was cold and the bed linen smelled of humidity. We also expected to be able to spend some relaxing time in the flat which was impossible due to building work taking place in the flat below. Once these issues are fixed, the Garden Flat will be a perfect place to unwind in the heart of the island capital.

We came as foot passengers from Ferry Terminal. You can walk from Ferry terminal in half an hour with luggage. Taxis and regular buses available. Parking is restricted outside apartment. Got an explorer ticket for island which was great value. Buses and trains. The apartment was very comfortable for us as a couple. Better suited if you are coming to events at Villa Marina or the Theatre. Shops and most bars are at the other end. . Close by is a Steak House and Curry restaurant.
Medium sized supermarket close by.




A very nice stay!

A very nice stay in this nicely decorated flat. Location is extremely convenient since Douglas town centre is only a block away. The apartment benefits from all modcons, so you can travel light and enjoy.



Not inconvenient

A well appointed, well located apartment with some unusual quirks. Unlike many self-catering holiday lets, there were no staple comestibles provided. By this I mean, no tea, no coffee, no sugar. The salt & pepper pots were empty. While there were plenty of cups & saucers, there were only two mugs, which meant frequent washing up for guests who prefer their beverage from a mug. No teaspoons were found, but sundae spoons! There were plenty of chopsticks available for the oriental guests, but one wonders how many such guests use this property. No tablespoons for serving food, which might be expected of a self-catering apartment. The entire supply of toilet paper was half a roll. Searches of store cupboards and drawers revealed stocks of replacement light bulbs, bin liners etc. etc. but no toilet roll could be found. No instructions provided regarding disposal of rubbish. It took five days to discover the wheeled bin outside the back gate. The property does not seem to encourage participation in even the limited recycling facilities offered by Douglas Borough Council (green and blue tubs). We paid a visit to the recycling point at the nearby Winerite store, which accepted drinks cans and glass bottles. The wi-fi signal is barely sufficient for use with the TV for apps such as BBC I-player and ITV Hub. (Dropped out several times.) A little bit more guidance on the use of the parking disc would have been helpful, in particular to set its start time each evening to 0800, so as to authorise parking until 10am.



Comfortable and convenient.

Comfortable accommodation & very good value for money.
Well located for all the amenities in Douglas and within walking distance of the majority of the local tourist attractions.
