Big field, pitch where you like, only 2 other tents when we arrived. A lot different during motor bike weeks. Lots of loos and showers for men, not so many for the ladies. Hurricane Bertha arrived the same time as us so it was helpful that we could use the 'pit stop' to boil a kettle and eat our dinner. Spar shop and Railway pub at bottom of hill (turn right out of site). Easy to cycle to but not so easy on way back! Douglas-Peel cycle track at the back of site.

Isle of Man is an interesting place with plenty to see, most of which we didn't so will come back one day and would not need to seek out any other site.

Stayed 3 nights during TT period 2014 - first impressions were very good with friendly and helpful staff, pleasant camping fields, food and entertainment in the evenings. During our first night we realised that there were a bunch of morons who kept revving their engines (this was apparently addressed promptly) and used parts of the site as a race track.

The following morning we experienced great difficulty in gaining access to the 'facilities' due to the high number of site users. There must have been thousands of campers all using 4 (men's) showers and there were usually long queues outside. The portaloo toilets seemed ok at first but were usually in a disgusting state when we arrived.

Access to nearby towns was very good with a minibus service to Douglas for 2 or bus stops within a short walking distance.

I expect the facilities would be acceptable during quieter periods but the TT is over subscribed and the site owners should make arrangements for the extra numbers or restrict access to the site - this will never happen because it with mean reducing their profits! I don't thing we'll be using the site again.

This was our first visit to Glenlough campsite. I rang ahead beforehand to enquire about he facilities as I am disabled with limited mobility using crutches. The lady I spoke was extremely helpful and advised us of the best place to pitch our tent. We pitched in the small paddock and therefore only a short walk away from the toilet and shower facilities. The toilet and shower blocks were very clen and tidy, as was the wash room facilities. There was five of us in our group, three adults and two children, there was plenty of space for the children to play cricket, and they enjoyed the tree swing and the rabbits. The fees were very reasonable and the lady who we spoke to on site was very helpful. We all had a wonderful stay and would recommend this as the best campsite on the Isle of Man.

This was the first time Id stayed here and will definitely be doing so again in the future. As a cycling backpacker the TV room with free Wi-Fi and charging points (a cost option at all the more expensive Caravan & Camping Club sites Ive stayed at) which was open 24hours a day was a god send when the weather was wet. All the showers and other facilities were clean and in good working order producing hot water straight away. All the staff at the site were friendly and helpful. There is a bus stop at the entrance to the site with regular buses around the island.

This is the second time I have stayed at this site for the TT races, Excellent facilities and warm friendly atmosphere, the owners are so accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. I hope to be staying there again this year and would recommend it to anyone, please bear in mind it is at the top of a medium sized hill, however there are 2 good pubs and shops within walking distance, a short bus/taxi ride into Douglas. The site offers a free TV room with plenty of mobile phone/ipod/laptop charging facilities and constant free hot water shower blocks regularly cleaned. I would recommend this site for families/ couples/ singles/ motorcycle and mountain bike tourists as it offers both a good central location but also located in a peaceful tranquil area.

Reviewer: Mancboy 1 review from this member

We stayed in a tent during second week of TT, just me and my girlfriend. We pitched our tent in the large field near the road.

The owners were friendly and we were told we could pitch anywhere. First night was noisy to say the least. Why people have to spend all night reving bike engines I don't know.

The facilities were basic and the four showers for men and woman were inadequate.

Plus side. Cafe was good and the marque with bands on was a good idea. Also bus stop outside and fabulous taxi service made getting around easy.

In summary if we're honest we wouldn't stay here again.

Management response: This review is incorrect - it states that we have only 4 showers - we have 4 ladies Showers and 9 gents showers! If he had spoken to us, we could have shown him the facilities and dealt with the noise problem- as we have a warden on duty 24/7 for the TT period.
