We stayed at Darby's for 3 nights. Location is ideal (walking distance to harbour, old towns and the start of most tours. Wenche prepared delicious breakfasts, was friendly, and generally accommodating (including leaving out breakfast for us early as we had to leave for Kjerag at 6am). Perfect stay in SVG

My wife and I are from Plymouth, MI, USA. We stayed at Darby's from 8/14/15 - 8/17-14. This trip was spontaneous for us as we find it very difficult to get away (Brady bunch with seven children - five at home). Wenche was able to fit us in last minute. Everything was perfect from the moment we arrived. Wenche and... More

This is one of the best B&B's I've ever stayed in. Wenche is a fabulous host and it was a pleasure staying in her beautiful home. The whole house is amazing: the rooms are spacious, modern, immaculately clean, quiet, comfortable.... well, everything you could ask for! There is a small kitchen area for guests with a sink, microwave, cups, cutlery... More

This is the second time I’ve stayed at Darby’s Inn and for me who is a regularly visitor to Stavanger there is no other place to consider for future visits. What a great place to be! Rustic elegance, a fantastic setting, stunning rooms and wonderful hosts! The host family have lived in many places around the world and there is... More

My niece and I stayed at the Inn for three nights in early July. It was perfect. Easy to get to by bus from the airport and within easy walking distance of the harbor and Old Stavanger areas. The room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were awesome, and the hosts (owners) could not have been nicer or more helpful. Highly... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Darby's Inn. It's always the people that make the difference and Wenche was very very helpful and went way out of way to ensure we had a comfortable stay. This included helping us get a stroller for our younger one and making special arrangements for room. I would highly recommend staying here. The... More

Location, welcome, furnishings, friendliness and cleanliness were all ... perfect! it would be difficult to find a better b and b. It is in a quiet area but within easy walking distance of the town centre and Wenche, the host, is so helpful with any queries, but not intrusive. A beautiful house well worth visiting if you want something out... More

We stayed at Darby's Inn for four nights and we everything was far better than we expected! The room was perfect for what we needed while traveling with an almost two year old.

Recognising that our short break in Stavanger was not going to be cheap, we wanted to find somewhere special to stay - and were not disappointed with Darby's Inn. Everything was great!!! We were made to feel very welcome by Wenche, staying in her wonderful home. Her tips on places to eat and explore were first rate - and the... More

We had a lovely stay with Wynche at her magnificent mansion house in Stavenger. We truly got the Norwegian experience we were after! Wynche waited up especially for us to arrive and her communication with us leading up to our stay was brilliant. Breakfast was lovely - her scrambled eggs are very yummy! We will be certainly recommending to our... More
