Very close to the city center of Stavanger, this B&B is one of the most warm and cosy ever. Wenche is such a lovely host and makes you feel at home. The generosity of the owners reflect on everything in the place. The location is also very good because it's a walking distance from everywhere in the city. Darby's Inn... More

This B&B is located down town Stavanger, but in a very quiet street. Its a beautiful old house with interior that brings you back to the upper class og the english countryside or something like that. You eat breakfast under a splendid chandelier and you sleep in hte nicest beds I've ever slept in in a hotel or B&B. This... More

Darby's Inn is a much better alternative to many of Norway's uninspiring hotel chains. We don't usually stay at B&B but Darby's Inn has certainly changed our views on accommodation. The room we stayed at was nice and clean and has the same standard amenities as a hotel. The living and dining areas are beautifully furnished but yet you don't... More

I've been staying with Wenche and Paul Darby on and off for 2 years now and I can honestly say this is the best B&B I've ever stayed at. The house is beautifully decorated with objects from their travels around the world and the breakfasts are so generous you will not require any lunch. Perhaps best of all is their... More

When Wenche found out we would be searching for my ancestral farms in very rural areas(i.e. no english spoken) she quickly arranged for her friend Suzanne to be our driver, translator, and great companion for 2 days. Easily the highlight of our 12 day visit to Norway. Darby's Inn is perfect for a Stavanger visit, located in a quiet classy... More

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
