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.

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.

I visited this site with my three year old son in August 2011. As we don't have a car we found it very useful having the bus stop right outside the campsite. We arrived quite late to find a welcome pack waiting in reception for us with local information and a bus timetable which was very helpful. The toilets and showers were always very clean and the site was well maintained. The owners of the site really went above and beyond, lending us spare sleeping bags and airbeds to keep warm and comfortable and when the weather was really bad they even left us a note by the tent telling us one of their 'pod huts' was free that night and to ring if we needed it, we did and had a fantastic and exciting night in there. I would definitely recommend this site to anyone, we are intending to return and can't wait!

What a great place to camp for the TT. I travelled in from Colorado in the US, and was treated wonderfully from the moment I arrived.

Everyone was very friendly, and a lively atmosphere prevailed. For the race fortnight, they provided live music every night, and food and drink available throughout the day.

The showers and toilets were kept cleaan, and there was always someone at the office to help out with whatever you might need.

They even provided outlets at the office to re-charge your electric gear.
