We made a last minute decision to stay in Derry and were fortunate to find a room in Arkle House. The hostess, Sally, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. the B&B is a bit of a distance from town, so it required we get in the car each time we wanted to explore or dine. Our room was basic...

It is a wonderful place to stay!! Great hospitality!!! We hope we can stay at this memorable Arkle House for a longer time but we have to get back on the road to Galway. The room is clean and comfortable, lovely decorations and memorable pictures everywhere in the house, definitely feels like home. And even we have a rather long... More

9 of us stayed in the fantastic B&B it was more like a luxurious hotel but better because it had the warmth of the family home. Sally went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed. It is in a nice area that felt rural but was quite close to the centre of Derry costing only... More

Absolutely bizarre business practices. I called months in advance and reserved three rooms with Visa. A few days before we arrived, I called and told female owner we would be there at 9:00 p.m., and she agreed that would be okay. We arrived at Arkle House at 8:50 p.m., but owner told us she had already given our rooms away.... More

I think this traveller has made a mistake. We had plenty of rooms that night and would not have turned business away. There are other bed and breakfasts of similar style in the area (Victorian) and I think maybe he got the wrong house. Anyway it's unfortunate he had a bad experience in our city, and I hope he can...

This was a lovely place to stay, very homely and comfortable. The location suited our purposes perfectly, there was a great breakfast and the welcome addition of an electric blanket for a cold night in December. Thank you!
