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.

The Darby Inn was wonderful, very classy and had great artwork, books, paintings, statues in wonderful taste, as well as great rooms and great hosting! Wenche was wonderful and she really keeps everything in order and has a knack for being right there if you need her, or letting you enjoy your quiet, private moments, either on the balcony, drinking...

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
