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

I travel to Norway on a regular basis having stayed in an apartment for most of 2013 when that lease was up I looked at a B + B as Hotels are notoriously unfriendly and expensive in Stavanger. I had Previously looked at Darby's but was unable to secure accommodation due to it being full, I now know why! There... 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

We were looking for a unique location during our Scandinavian honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, Wenche made our Stavanger experience lovely. She knew we were honeymooning so she surprised us with sparkling wine and cherries! How lovely is that! The room was beautiful, with a comfortable bed and nice, hot shower. Her breakfast was a terrific spread in a... More

My business partner had stayed at Darby's Inn previously and insisted that I stayed there on a recent trip to Norway. I have to say I am glad he did, this place is a little gem. The ambience of the house is quite exceptional, and it truly felt like a home from home. A large part of that is down... More

We stayed at Darby's Inn for the first two nights of our two week holiday in Western Norway. We chose Darby's Inn for our stay in Stavanger based on Tripadvisor reviews. Thus, our expectations were high and yet they were still exceeded. We made arrangements for our stay via e-mail. Wenche was very cordial and helpful throughout that correspondence. Her... More

We stayed at Darby's Inn on a spur of the moment trip to Stavanger. The house is located in central Stavanger, a 5 minute walk away from the harbour. The rooms and amenities are beautiful and Wenche and Paul are wonderful hosts. The B&B offered a lovely alternative to staying in an overpriced, generic hotel in Stavanger! I would highly... More

Darby's Inn is warm and luxurious with excellent hospitality from Wenche and Paul. The room was a warm and comfortable en suite with a small kitchenette next door. It is very close to the centre of town and in a quiet quaint part of the Stavanger Central area. My stay was a real treat in a historical and lovely building,... More

This was my first visit to Stavanger and a friend recommended the Darby’s Inn. We arrived late Sunday evening for 3 nights and received a very warm welcome from the owners Wenche and Paul. My room was excellent and spotlessly clean, breakfast was even better and the whole experience is one I hope to repeat. Thank you for your wonderful... More

I've had the privilege to be staying at Darby's B&B for a week every month for the last 2 years while working in Stavanger. From the first stay I felt the warm hospitality and friendliness that characterize the owners Paul and Wenche, who have become my dear friends now. Truth to tell, the accommodation is perfect,clean and tidy. The house... More
