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. Mrs. Darby was BEYOND helpful and so, so kind! We loved chatting with her, we really loved her breakfast and she went out of her way to... More

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

Amazing B&B in a great location, fantastic hosts, and an incredible value. Darby's Inn has everything you could want in a B&B - clean rooms, comfortable beds, nice showers, a stunning common room, and a fresh and plentiful breakfast. This place is a gem. Wish we could have stayed longer.

I stayed here in March while I was in Stavanger on business, and I couldn't have picked a better place to stay. The location was excellent and easy to find. The Darby Inn itself is beautiful, with rooms filled with treasures from all over the world. My room downstairs was so comfortable as well. My favorite part had to be... More

We stayed here about a year and a half ago (late review, I know) and loved it. What a charming place to stay, close to center (walking distance) and best of all very helpful, friendly and accommodating hosts that made the stay memorable. Have just recommended this place to a friend visiting the area from UK as a must.
