Given that we leave the rock in two days time, I thought I better pull my finger out and actually pack. For days, Keiren's bedroom has acted as a temporary storage facility for all my bits. So today was the day. After messing around with iTunes and trying to choose appropriate chilled out songs on my phone, not pressing sync therefore having to redo it all again, I decided to pack.

Well, having engineered the ability to exit the British Isles for the winter, and with a vague idea of places we want to see, it's been an intense time of planning.
Great admiration to Neil Ghosh of Original Diving who has had to interpret our missed signals - and our determination to extract every last ounce out ...
It is warm and sunny! Tis is unusual. We have walked to the village and back, total 1.5 hours down and up, each day to try and keep fit. Loving the flowers, hanging baskets outside impossibly picturesque cottages and all down the promenade. We can now go through the woods on a Segway, huge balloon tyres on them. More of that ...

I finally end up in the ex capital of IOM at the old historic town of Castletown. With mu rather muddy bike parked up I take a walk around this old town. It sure is full of history and has loads to see from castles to churches and a few old lime killins etc

June 30, 2012 Not going to see the sharks again today either so at breakfast, we ask for suggestions from other guests. We have also looked at some brochures and such to figure out the best course of action. We decided to head for the Laxey Wheel which is supposed to be the largest working water wheel in the world and then go to the south of the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Silvercraigs Hotel Douglas
I recently stayed 3 nights at Silvercraigs in late June 2007. As a single traveler, i found my ensuite room to have easily met all of my
needs. Spacious, comfortable, and well-kept. I stayed on the second floor. Stairs were no problem and there is a lift to all floors. My room faced the promenade with a nice view of the beach and the sea. Good location with easy access to restaurants and transportation. My hosts, Diana and Stuart, told me that they had only recently purchased the hotel and were planning to make some changes, such as internet access and earlier breakfast, to broaden the appeal. And they greet you with your choice of beverage. I would definitely stay
there if I ever make a return visit to the Isle of Man.
A "bloody" good time
A "bloody" good time is more a term of endearment than anything
My friend had the misfortunate to suffer what can only be described as a nose bleed of Niagra proportions!!!
but thanks to the efforts of Diana our 3 day break was not ruined
Diana's help was in keeping with her very friendly approach and a wish to see her guests comfortable
this was eveident from our arrival as both Diana and Stuart made the effort to make us feel very welcome
Granted the Silver Craigs has a dated feel and look to it, Diana and Stuart do not and both are to be admired for thier enthusiasm and willingness to be both friendly but "detached"
I would have no hesitation in my recommendation neither would my 2 friends
A good place to stay
have just returned from i-o-m after staying at the silvercraigs hotel for 7 nights, stewart and diane have just taken over the running of it..
the interior is old but very clean with the breakfast to good to miss.
the location is vey central to town center, with the horse tram passing every 10 minutes.
we could not fault this accomodation, a lot of refirbishment is taking place at present time which will only be good for the customers, we wish the owners , stewart and diane best wishes for the future. doug and jackie
Silvercraigs is now under new ownership and it's obvious that Stuart and Diana are trying really hard to make a go of it. The welcome was brilliant, the rooms clean and the breakfast excellent. The location is also perfect with everything in easy walking distance. Decor is old fashioned 50s/60s but that kind of adds to the nostalgic appeal of IOM in general.
Loved our stay
Just returned from a motobike holiday, and three of us stopped at the silvercraigs for four nights, we had a great time the new owners and the staff were great and looked after us well, They had only had the hotel a few weeks ,the rooms were clean and tidy and the sea view was great [see photo] .The location is good and handy for the local nightlife we would stay there again ,
We enjoyed our stay at the silvercraigs hotel very much,Excellent service!
We enjoyed our stay at the silvercraigs hotel very much indeed,the owners & all the staff we encountered were very helpful & couldn't do enough for us!
Rooms were clean & tidy,breakfast was great too,we wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.......might be back for RALLY ISLE OF MAN in july!
Lovely Old fashioned Silvercraigs!!
Arrived: 26 August 2006
I arrived with my 2 children (8 & 6) on the saturday -Mike the owner was a really pleasant helpful person and made us feel very welcome.
The rooms were basic although very comfortable and extremely clean. Breakfast was lovely no complaints whatsoever and the staff were friendly. The children enjoyed their stay also and it was just what we expected - a lovely quaint old fashioned hotel.
The lift was really handy for getting the pram up to our room and everything was to our expectations.
I would definitely come back to stay here without a doubt - we had a great time!!
There are many reasons for you not to stay here but the main one is it just doesn't give you value for money. We paid £56 per night and specifically chose this hotel because it was a little more expensive than some of the B&b's but it just wasn't worth it. We could have stayed at the Hilton for another £20 and I wish we had! There's is the old joke about two people being unable to stand up in the same room at the same time and this applied in our room., it was so small. Breakfast was basic and the staff were unhelpful in every aspect. Our room still hadn't been serviced by 7.30pm on our second day. It is not a central location and public transport does not run that close to the hotel apart from the once hourly ( and usually full) horse trams. Upgrade to a better hotel (you're worth it!) or don't spend as much. You can get the same facilites for a lot less per night in other more central hotels.
