We were six friends on a weekend away looking for quality accommodation at a good price and that's just what we found at Elagh View Bed & Breakfast. We had three of the four bedrooms that are well equipped and so comfortable. Our hosts Jimmy & Mary were charming, friendly and so accommodating, they just did everything for us without... More

Driving in from Donegal, Elagh View B & B was easy to access. It was our first night in Northern Ireland and we were warmly welcomed. We were even greeted by the donkeys driving up the small hill as we neared this idyllic location. It probably helps to arrive before dark, however, since it is a bit tucked away. This... More

After a long day of sight-seeing and driving it was truly a pleasure to "come home" to this BNB. Warm hosts and a crisp clean and very comfortable room ! I slept so well and thoroughly enjoyed my short stay here. I would definitely put it as a place to go back to. The Irish breakfast was great and common... More

On first arrival this place does look that great (it is also difficult to find), but appearances can be deceptive. This is actually an excellent b&b. Mary and Jimmy are very friendly and helpful about things to do in the local area and where to eat. The room was comfortable and the bathroom was large. All areas were very clean... More

Convenient and peaceful location on the outskirts of Derry; very easy to find. Lovely countryside views. Mary and Jimmy were most friendly, accommodating and ever ready with helpful information. Rooms were comfortable and exceptionally clean. Breakfast was made to order with a good variety available for all tastes. The cooked breakfast was absolutely first class! We would stay there again...

I stayed in Elagh View for one night whilst I was in Londonderry for a weekend training course and in all honesty I was just looking somewhere cheap and cheerful. The B&B is literally just a 5min drive into Derry, close to shops and amenities too. The B&B is set just outside of Derry in a beautiful quiet country setting... More

We stayed here two nights (Oct 7-8, 2013) in this BB not far removed from Derry. We found the place with aid of a GPS, and as we left the highway, the first impressions were not especially positive. One must travel through a rather seedy rural area, and the BB comes as a surprise when you turn into the driveway.... More

My husband and I stayed two nights at Elagh.View. The room that we stayed in was the best so far during our trip around Northern Ireland, yet the price was very reasonable.The bedroom and bathroom were spotless and of a high standard, both beautifully presented. The ensuite was the best we've used and that includes a five star hotel that... More

We stayed with Mary & Jimmy the owners of Elagh View from Friday until Monday morning during The All Ireland Fleadh in Derry 16 to 19 August 2013. It is 10 minutes from Derry City in a rural location. 5 minutes driving takes you over the border into County Donegal. Great Breakfast - anything you want. Very clean and confortable... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night in August 2013 whilst visiting Londonderry/Derry. After reading reviews online, I had high expectations for Elagh View, was thinking something special - unfortunately it did not deliver. Don't get me wrong, the B & B is nice, and the owners are lovely, but it is nothing more than average, and fails... More

I am so very disappointed that you felt we did not live up to our excellent reputation. It is obvious from the review that you were annoyed that I had to contact booking.com when you did not return for over 4 hours to settle your bill. Please accept my sincere apologies if I caused you any embarrassment for it certainly... More
