Although many premises are now fully booked by competitors and officials for the NatWest Island Games next July, there is still a wide variety of accommodation available to visiting supporters. There are vacancies in hotels, bed and breakfast, self catering and campsites.

As an alternative the Isle of Man Department of Tourism have organised the popular Homestay Scheme to operate during the period of the Games.

The Homestay scheme has successfully operated for a period of over ten years to accommodate the many additional tourists who come over to the Isle of Man every June for the TT Motorbike festival.
The scheme provides for tourists to be accommodated in private homes on a bed and breakfast or self catering basis.
Information and listings of Homestay premises will be available in January 2001 on the NatWest Island Games website.


At the time of going to press we were unable to quote actual accommodation prices for 2001 but we expect the ranges per person to be:

5 Crowns Price Band A  65- 85
3 - 4 Crowns Price Band B 50 - 65
1 - 2 Crowns Price Band C 30 - 45
B. & B/Self Catering Price Band D  15 - 30

Naturally, the price bands we have quoted here are really only an indication to the actual costs which will be levied in 2001. Obviously, as soon as provisional bookings have been made, it will be up to the individual organiser from each Island to discuss final charges and costs with their hotel direct.

However for those traveling to the Isle of Man by air, an overnight stay at Manchester Airport my be required. Below are details of the rates for the Hilton Manchester Airport.


Midweek Mon-Thur 105.00 room only Double or single occupancy
Weekend Fri-Sun 99.00 room only Double or single occupancy

Rates are exclusive of VAT @17.5%
