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

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!

very nice 2 nights stay, with 3 mates, wonderful hospitality, clean comfy rooms, top quality breakfast. The staff could not do enough for us, just like home atmosphere. Londonderry is about a £5 taxi ride away, a visit is a must, to this historic city.

We had just the one night but were pleased we had chosen to stay here. The home is set in a large and magnificent garden just back from a main road so it is very quiet. We got the sense that there are regulars who stay here for extended periods, perhaps for work. To accommodate them and other guests, the... More

We only spent one evening at Arkle House and it was really quite pleasant. The room at the top of the stairs with an en-suite and three beds was comfortable but unfortunately there was only one hard backed chair, so we were forced to sit on the beds. The TV could only be viewed from one of the single beds.... More

A lovely guest house - a home away from home and very convenient to the city centre. The room was charming and there was a small kitchen available to guests as well as a comfortable lounge. We had a choice of cooked breakfast at a time which suited - very welcoming.

We had a long drive and arrived in Derry late. The bar keep recommended this place. It was dark and raining hard. Terry came into town to guide us back to Arkle House. Comfy beds. Clean. Beautiful garden. Excellent breakfast. Only 5 minutes from the center of town.

We arrived in Derry without a reservation and found the Arkle House by chance. Terry and Sally most graciously came to get us in Derry and guide us to their B&B. Its a beautiful garden setting, quiet with high victorian ceilings and beautifully decorated with plenty of space and comfortable beds. They and their staff are kindly ready to help... More

Myself and my boyfriend recently had a short stay at Arkle House. The owners were very welcoming upon arrival which was lovely! Our room was very sweet with beautiful decor and the bed was very comfortable which ensured a good nights sleep! The breakfast was delicious and offered a great choice of different fruits, cereals, toast and a classic Irish... More

Had a recent short break at Arkle House. Overall experience was pleasant. Had a double room booked - but found it to be on the small side. On the whole the room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The en suite shower room was small and had a strange odour. As with previous guest reviews the breakfasts served were... More
