My mother and I recently stayed at Darby’s Inn for a girly getaway treat from the UK. I am not one to write many reviews on trip advisor although frequently read others – but simply put, Wenche was a perfect host and staying at this B&B made our trip. We stayed in the Sverdrup room which was spacious for two... More

In a way I am hesitant to reveal this secret. May be Darby's Inn will be so popular that I will never been able to get a room next time I am in Stavanger. But the truth must be told: I have hardly been staying in a so cosy and at the same time so tasteful funished Inn. On the... More

The house has a fascinating history and they have restored it beautifully. The room I stayed in was immaculate and the bed was extremely comfortable and restful. It was also very well located. Wenche and Paul were so welcoming and even shared a drink with me. Wenche cooked the most delicious breakfast. This is one of the nicest places I've... More

I could not recommend Darby's Inn more highly to anyone who, like me, enjoys staying in places with lots of historic feel, charming art objects, and the feel of an old manor house, all made perfect by delightful hosts. This is the kind of place where the guests meet in the morning around the breakfast table and are so happy... More

Lovely lovely 2 days that my girlfriend and I spent at Darby's Inn this August en route to Preikestolen. Wenche was an excellent host, sharing with us the history of the very old house that is that is the inn, her experiences living in Asia and even cooking breakfast for us. Thank you so much for making our stay at... More

What a beautiful B&B in the beautiful port city of Stavanger. The accommodations are top-notch and Paul and Wench Darby are great hosts. The B&B itself is very charming and located in a nice residential area very close (10-15 minute easy walk) to the Stavanger town center/port. It is also only a short 2-block walk to the Airport Express Bus... More

I wonderful Place to stay. It is more like a small Inn rather than a B&B. Beautiful home with a wonderful breakfast. Wenche was the ultimate host. I made the mistake of staying only one night. Do yourself a favor and don't make the same mistake.This was the best place I stayed in my 32 days touring the Scandinavian countries.... More

A wonderfully decorated house with very comfortable rooms in walking distance to the old part of town. We loved the asian theme of the interior, we loved the freshly made breakfast served for all guests at a communal table and we much appreciated the very useful tips we got from Wenche. The stay in Darby´s Inn and the walk up... More

Stayed here en route to visiting Preikestolen and Kjerag. Unfortunately weather was bad and Wenche did offer some excellent alternatives with great patience. Breakfast was decent and rooms were clean. Only complaint was that sliding bathroom door had issues staying open, but small matter. Wenche was nice enough to allow us temporary use of her private garage even though it... More
