I stayed at this hotel with my Mother in August 2014 for one night. We found the location to be perfect as we had a car, and the hotel offered free parking. The hotel offered a free one way taxi into the city which was very good, and the taxi back cost only £5. The staff in the hotel were... More

We held our wedding reception here on Saturday, 9th August 2014. Having booked the wedding 2 years previous to this, we had the pleasure of dealing with Lauren from day one. Lauren is an absolute asset to the hotel, she is calm and professional, and exceedingly patient when dealing with a bridezilla with 20000 questions and as many changes of... More

A great venue on the outskirts of the city, with good food and friendly staff. The hotel will give you a free taxi voucher for one journey into or out of the city centre, but you have to ask for it. The room was spacious and well-equipped. The bed was comfortable. The free Wi-Fi was trouble free.

Family meal with two young kids. Wife got chill pita pocket which was very hot and soggy. Overall bill 47 quid. Average quality grub in a lovely restaurant which is bright and modern. Staff very good and speed of service was spot on. There are cheaper places in Derry but wouldn't rule out another visit.

My husband and I stayed here along with the mum and nan (both pensioners) for a few days at the end of July. Check-in was smooth and efficient, they had taken note of a disability suitable room request and had booked are rooms fairly close together. The only annoyance is that they take an £80 pre-authorised amount in case you... More

Stayed with a school group. Seems like there is a disconnect between the restaurant and the rest of the hotel. Restaurant was good for both breakfast and dinner and very interesting ascetically, as was the lobby. Rooms, by comparison, were dated and dingy, but not awful. Window didn't open much and did nothing to relieve the heat in the room.... More

Stayed here during the clipper week in derry. Seemed a bit dated on arrival but we were pleasantly surprised when we walked into reception, nice clean modern decor. The receptionist was very efficient on checkin. She was very helpful when we decided to take a local tour of the city. Bedroom was slightly dated but was very clean and had... More

We stayed here one weekend recently, reading the reviews about this hotel we weren't expecting the four seasons, but we did not expect this and worst. We definitely did not find value in our stay, ad we were truly disappointed, especially after looking at the reviews and pictures on the actual hotel website, which i find surprising. 1. The room...

This was horrible. Dreadful. I can't even believe the pictures they have posted and have no idea where they got those. First off--The postcode took us to a location about a mile away and on a different street. Secondly the receptionist (blonde) was short and cold--not at all the friendly hospitality we were used to on this trip. The wifi... More
