“Nice hotel, excellent staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2010

A mixed age group of six we visited the hotel for a 2 day week-end stay to attend a wedding at another, nearby, hotel.

The hotel is situated off the Caw roundabout on the way in to the city centre from Derry Airport. It costs around £10 in a taxi from the a'port. There is nothing off interest or amenities, such as shops or bars, in the immediate vicinity. However it's only a short taxi ride into the city centre costing £3/4. Taking into account the very reasonable room rates, the hotel still offers good vfm when compared to city centre hotels.

On arrival the reception staff whilst quick and efficient, were also very welcoming and sincere in their encouragement to return to them for any help or information we may require. I have to say that they were true to their word as they are not only knowledgeable about their City, they treasure it, and want to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay.

The hotel itself looks like it has been quite recently refurbished and the rooms and public areas are pleasant and kept spotlessly clean by a houseworking team who are a credit to themselves and the management of the hotel. I would say that this is a hotel which puts some effort into it's staff selection process and believe me it shows.

We had a very pleasant evening meal on our arrival night and contrary to a previous reviewer we found the food and drink prices very reasonable for a hotel, particularly taking into account the attentive staff, pleasant surroundings and general ambience.

Breakfast was fine, may be a little limited choice wise, but again a pleasant, unhurried experience.

I would definitely recommend the Waterfoot.

Girls night away at Waterfoot was brilliant, rooms very clean and modern. Food in wine bar was excellent and to top it all didn't have to leave the hotel for entertainment as there was a dj playing some very good music (and not too loud) till quite late on. Brilliant Saturday nite out had by all!! Look forward to going back.

P.S. Vending machine in corridor very much appreciated in the wee hours of the morning!

Myself and my partner stayed at the Waterfoot Hotel in Derry and had a fantastic night. The room was excellent and I am very difficult to please. The food was excellent and great value for money. The staff were very helpful and went the extra mile to assist in making the stay very enjoyable. I have never slept so well in years! I will be back! Very very pleasantly surprised.
