I've traveled the world for decades traveling to over 40 countries and I've been to Stavanger numerous times. My Darby Inn stay was superb by any standard. The owners are warm wonderful real people. The inn has beautiful traditional furniture, and the rooms are quiet. Breakfast was delightful. Needless to say, the Darby Inn will be my first choice for... More

My third trip to Stavanger and I really wanted to get away from tired old boring hotels. Then I found Darby's Inn and what a wonderful find it was! I have spent almost two weeks in Darby's Inn, and it has felt much more like being a guest invited into a friend's home than anything else. Wenche and Paul, the... More

The most beautyful house I´ve been at! 5 min walk to the Byterminal (Bus centre). Clean and fresh room, nice beds and the best armchair for reading books. Very good hosts, helpful and enjoyable to talk to and the most important thing, Wenche knows how to make breakfast :)

I stayed at Darby’s Inn from September 2013 until the end of December 2013 and i cannot praise this place highly enough. Firstly the location is fantastic in a quiet area but only 5 minutes walk to the center of town, the accommodation is beautiful and extremely clean and tidy with fabulous rooms (I stayed in every one!), But the...

We had a wonderful stay at the Darby's Inn. The building looks so Victorian, something we never expected to find in Western Norway, but blended in perfectly with the neighborhood. Inside you will be pleasantly surprised by the fantastic mix of furniture that was collected over the years by the owners through their own years of travelling. We were there... More

We stayed 2 nights at Darby's Inn, where we were treated like royalty! Wenche & Paul attended to our every need. Wenche has lived in Stavanger for many, many years, so she gave excellent advice on what to see & do. Parking in Stavanger can be challenging, but they took care of any parking concerns. From the perfect location, to... More

Starting with your greeting by Wenche, you will have a wonderful experience in this charming Inn in the charming city of Stavanger. The Inn is a treasure with a mix of Asian art and Nordic history. The location is exactly right for seeing the city, an easy walk to the ancient village, cathedral, shopping pedestrian streets, and the food and... More

Picked the Darby Inn by chance and hit the jackpot. Great place, location, rooms and best of all, the hosts, Wenche and Paul. It was like staying with close friends. Met up with Paul in Houston after returning home and had dinner. It was meeting a friend again. We would return just to see the Darby's.

I have walked into this well rated Bed and Breakfast just to save some bucks from the outrageously high hotel rates in Stavanger. Four nights after that I am leaving the classy and lovely property of very dear friends, to whom I don't feel to have paid daily rates, just contributed with my share for the expenses related to my...
