Great location, great help before and during our visit regarding what to do and how we might track down our family roots, delicious breakfast, beautiful surroundings. We were treated like long-lost friends rather than like customers. Thank you for a wonderful stay in Stavanger.

The Darby's made us feel so welcome. Their home is just beautiful, clean and you can tell the pride of ownership they feel.... More

Lovely house, lovely hostess, lovely rooms and an excellent breakfast within walking distance from Stavanger city center. The four rooms had hotel standard, with a lovely bathroom in each room. Couldn't have been better. We would love to come back. Thank you Darby's!!!

Darbys B&B beautifully and tastefully decorated, one feels immediately at easy upon entering. The furniture and interior decoration simply invites you to relax, sit and contemplate for awhile. From the street, I am sure many a passer-by would notice the interesting decoratioins. Nothing usual about this building, so the occupants you wonder about! They too are interesting and charming, breakfast... More

If you are lucky to get a room here take it. There are only four rooms available at this small gem. It is within walking distance to historical Stavanger. And the beauty is that you can leave all of that tourism and noise behind when you return. I was so impressed I took two other rooms for my friends!! And... More

We stayed 3 nights at Darby's Inn in The Eckhoff Room, very clean and a comfortable bed. The inn's location (an easy walk to town) was very convenient we could easily walk to the Tau ferry in 15 mins. Wenche and Paul were very helpful with information and suggestions. Wenche's breakfasts were definitely above expectation. Would stay there again if... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Hartvig room and loved it. Wenche was a superb host with great recommendations on things to do in the area. Her breakfasts were top notch as well. We loved our stay in Stavanger and Darby's B&B helped make it. The central location makes it easy to walk everywhere and explore. Thanks Wenche for making... More
