'What an enchanting B & B!!'
"Can't recommend Englewood Lodge high enough! Margaret certainly knows how to look after you. NOTHING is too much trouble. Accommodation luxurious, but at the same time homely and welcoming. Great choice at breakfast (which will keep you going until evening), evening meal (optional extra) was delicious. Warning - Margaret's carrot cake is very moreish, and one slice isn't enough! :-) Thank you for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable. We hope to return to the Isle of Man and would look to stay with you again. Kind Regards."

"My stay with Linda, the owner and host of Englewood Lodge was most enjoyable. The room and ensuite were nicely decorated and very comfortable with towelling robes and slippers provided. Good selection of beverages in the room and nice biscuits. Breakfast was excellent with a superb choice. Food well cooked. I didn't have an opportunity to try evening meal, but there is an option for this is required. Host very friendly and made me feel very welcome. I will definitely return. I can definitely recommend to anyone with transport during the winter months. During the summer, public transport is manageable."

'excellent quality accommodation'
"This is the second time I've stayed at Englewood Lodge and Magaret works really hard at giving exceptional service, great quality food and rooms that are betting than some 5* hotels."
By Mr Carl J, Northampton, UK, 21 Oct 2015
"Our first visit to this B&B lasted a full week. The proprietor, Margaret McEwan made every effort to give us a very comfortable stay in her well appointed home and we enjoyed a spacious and luxuriously furnished dormer bedroom. The room had a pleasant view over the entirety of Douglas Bay. We were aware of the superb dinners cooked and presented by Margaret and, although we were free to dine elsewhere, we decided that they were good value and saved us from having to turn out in the evening, since we had no car and the nearest bus stop was some 15 minutes walk away. Guests enjoy the benefit of a lovely conservatory and very comfortable lounge with a large, modern TV, We also enjoyed playing pool there with other guests after dinner."
By Mr John C, Lytham St. Annes, UK, 18 Oct 2015
"We are so pleased to have found such a lovely place to stay on the Island. Everywhere is spotlessly clean, the welcome is friendly and the breakfasts are scrummy! We will certainly stay here again."
By Mrs B, Leicester, UK, 13 Oct 2015
'Wow, one of the best we have ever used.'
"First Class accommodation. Margaret the host is excellent and you can see this is in her DNA. She is a busy little bee, and what energy. Nothing slows her down. Also her attention to detail is outstanding. Food unbeatable, hospitality and cleanliness out of this world. Then we get the views over Douglas bay thrown in as a bonus. The Electric Railway passes the door, and the stop point is literally 150 yards away from her drive and is so convenient. Would use Englewood Lodge again and without even considering another place. Thanks Margaret, you are good!"
By Mr Alex R, BRIDGWATER, UK, 29 Sep 2015
"Englewood is as near perfect as a B&B can be. Any short fall 's are so minor they are not worth mentioning. Evening meals are superb."
By Mr Roger H, Stroud, UK, 29 Sep 2015
'The best place I've stayed on the Isle of Man'
"Englewood Lodge itself is a delightful place in which to stay. The accommodation is spacious and the rooms very comfortable. When I was there, a few of us were agreeing that we were sleeping better than at home. However, the best feature is Margaret herself whose care for her guests, hospitality and excellent cuisine are exceptional."
By Mr Robert S, Exmouth, UK, 22 Sep 2015

The guesthouse is located just outside Douglas, with a wonderful south view over the bay to Douglas. It is accessible easily by car, but also by the Electric Tramway and buses.

'First class all round'
"Went for this accommodation based on previous reviews and was not disappointed. The property is fantastic and kept to a very high standard. Margaret the owner was really helpful, pleasant and attentive, and the breakfast choices and standard were superb. We also had an evening meal which was fantastic (and a real bargain). The room was very clean and the décor first class. The views out to sea and across to Douglas were also great. The walk into Douglas may be a little far for some but we didn't find it an issue, especially as we had a car if it was to rain (which it didn't). All in all a super guest house and one we'll return to some day soon."
By Mr Tim H, Hinckley, UK, 08 Jul 2014

By Mr Peter G, Leicester, UK, 12 Apr 2014
'Excellent food, spotless rooms'
"If you are looking for an excellent place to stay on the outskirts of Douglas, look no further than the Englewood Lodge. Margaret (the owner) ensures that the rooms are spotlessly clean and offers an excellent cooked breakfast with enough choice for all tastes. Evening meals are available by prior arrangement for £12 for one course rising to £20 for three courses. Extremely comfortable beds with very high quality bed linen made for an excellent nights sleep. Spectacular views from the Englewood Lodge add to an already excellent stay. I hired a car and found it useful but local taxis and public transport are readily available nearby. Highly recommended."
By Mr Peter S, Leatherhead, UK, 18 Mar 2014
'Very pleasant stay'
"I chose Englewood Lodge on the basis of the great reviews and was not disappointed. The accommodation was all very smart and clean and Margaret was a very welcoming and hospitable host - she couldn't have done more. Very comfortable bed and a good shower. The food was lovely and there was even wonderful carrot cake on arrival."
By Mr Nigel S, Preston, UK, 14 Dec 2013
'Great B&B, superb hostess, outstanding food'
"Many have said how gracious a hostess Margaret is and how comfortable her rooms are as well as the very large and welcoming common areas (where wonderful homemade carrot cake was always there for the taking!). I can only agree wholeheartedly. And Margaret is an exceptional cook - I recommend you take advantage of the very reasonably priced dinner she offers. And her location is excellent. Just outside the hustle and bustle of Douglas' main Promenade (and its lack of parking), she's in a beautiful residential area with free parking right in her driveway. And a great view of the bay. Perfect setting for a relaxing and enjoyable stay."
By Mr James G, Oxford Mills, Canada, 10 Dec 2013
'Very nice experience'
"We enjoyed our trip to this magical island and would be very happy to stay at Englewood Lodge again. Margaret does all she can to make sure that her guests enjoy their visit. She explained that one of the secrets behind her success was a lot of cleaning, and our room was certainly spotless. The property is quiet and well situated to the edge of Douglas. We have both travelled extensively worldwide and can vouch that everything was to world-class standard."
By Miss Susan R, Darwen, UK, 11 Oct 2013
"The service was first class. The food was delicious. We were helped with appropriate advise re places to visit. The view from our room was panoramic! We were very pleased with our accommodation."
By Mr Patrick T, Chester, UK, 23 Sep 2013
'A great stay.'
"A very warm welcome from Margaret, very comfortable and well-equipped room. Breakfasts and evening meals were excellent. The location was very convenient for the electric railway to Douglas and Ramsey - the stop less than 100 metres away. Overall a very high standard and to be recommended."
By Mr Richard M, Dursley, UK, 18 Sep 2013
'The Best B&B I Have Visited!'
"I was visiting the island on business and had selected another B&B in Douglas. After one night, I realized I had made a mistake and decided to see if I could find something better. I could have chosen any of the main hotels but decided on the Englewood, which turned out to be a brilliant decision. Margaret is a first class host, the accommodation is certainly 5 Star and the breakfast was perfect, what more could you want."
By Mr Carl T, Newton-Le-Willows, UK, 10 Sep 2013

"Can't fault the quality of absolutely everything!"
By Mr Gareth C, Oswestry, UK, 20 Aug 2013
'Little 5 star gem!'
"Fantastic hotel. Margaret looked after us so well. Yummy cake and tea when we arrived. Hotel very well positioned, which meant we had lovely views of the sea and Douglas. Breakfast was the best, great choices. Had a lovely evening meal, which cost £20 for 3 courses. All home cooked. Yummy again. Fantastic value."
By Mrs JANE W, Leicester, UK, 02 Aug 2013
"Englewood Lodge is without doubt the best bed and breakfast I have ever stayed at. Margaret is a most attentive (but certainly not overpowering) hostess, providing all sorts of little extras as a matter of course and going out of her way to provide assistance whenever the opportunity arises. The whole house is beautifully decorated and immaculate and the food is really good. It's nice to be able to relax in the evening over a tasty meal without having to go out and find a restaurant - although it's completely up to you whether you eat in or go out. Staying at Englewood Lodge made our holiday on the Isle of Man so much more enjoyable than it might otherwise have been. We will certainly stay there again next time we visit."
By Mrs Karen B, Carmarthen, UK, 18 Jun 2013
'Lynn & Jill, mature-ish friends and cousins, Lancashire'

'Isle of Man visit after Easter'
"We were delighted with our stay at Englewood Lodge. The room was very comfortable and had an individual feel. The bathroom had every amenity. Towels and sheets of high quality. Both breakfast and evening meals were delicious and presented in an attractive dining room. It was obvious that Margaret, the owner, really cared about her guests. I would recommend this small hotel highly for visitors."
