“Best hosts ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

My friend & I stayed here for Radio One's Big Weekend and it was amazing!

Jim & Dee are the loveliest hosts. We had a 6AM flight so arrived very early on Saturday morning hoping they would let us drop our bags off. As soon as we walked through the front door we could smell breakfast and it smelt absolutely beautiful (we definitely were not disappointed when it was our turn the following morning!!)We didn't expect our room to be ready as it was only about 9AM, but it was and they let us go in to get a few hours sleep before we left for the gig. Dee even gave us each a bowl of fruit to take up!

The room was nice, very homely and the beds were ridiculously comfortable. We had a TV in the room and there were plenty of drawers and a wardrobe if you'd needed them. The en suite was good, very clean and the shower was powerful.

When we left for the gig, they gave us directions and instructions on where might be good to go afterwards. We ended up going straight back to Caw Cottage afterwards, as we had had a bit too much to drink, and we were met with a jug of iced water and painkillers outside our door! Jim and Dee really had everything covered.

The breakfast on Sunday morning was out of this world. A choice of cereal, fruit etc followed by a full Irish. It was absolutely lovely. A million times better than you would get in a hotel.

We had to check out by 12 as the room needed to be ready for the next guests but, as our flight wasn't until 8PM, they kindly allowed us to stay in their TV room for a few hours to kill time. They even brought us tea and biscuits! When we had finally watched enough TV, we decided to go into town and Dee even drove us in. She took us "the scenic route" and we got to see a great view of the whole of Derry.

I feel as though this review isn't doing Caw Cottage justice. You couldn't ask for better hosts, food or more comfortable beds! If you are going to stay in Derry, stay here. It's like a home away from home.

Me and my mate stayed here whilst at Radio 1 Big weekend and it was perfect. We had a great night sleep in amazing comfy beds. We had a Jug of Water and Pain killers left outside our room after our heavy night on the boose. Really pleasant couple willing to go out of their way to help us. Definitely would come back again.

My wife has stayed at Caw Cottage on many occasions and I was lucky enough to get to stay there myself. It is a lovely clean and well kept B & B, where you are made to feel welcome as soon as you arrive. The breakfasts are first class and the rooms are excellent with comfortable beds. I will definitely return for another stay.

We loved Caw Cottage the first time we went, so were happy to have the opportunity to return this week. Dee and Jim are the most fabulous hosts - just perfectly suited to welcome people into their home. They even remembered things we'd discussed on the previous visit - it was as if we were only there yesterday! They were absolutely delightful with our little three year old, who loved them to bits. And the breakfast was wonderful too. Can't find enough superlatives to describe this wonderful wee B&B and the couple who run it.

Im tucked up in bed at Caw Cottage as i write this after a wonderful first day here. Bed is so good its like something from a dreamy film....loads of thick quilted blankets..high pillows and so so soft and comfy. Dee and Jim are just the most wonderful hosts. They took us on a whirlwind tour of the city including the best views and recommendations for places to eat. Not only did they recommend the restaurant but they drove us there. I cannot fualt the welcome or the facilities. CANT WAIT FOR BREAKFAST!! Now so to sleep in this wonderful bed

The host of this B&B, Jim, treated me as if I am his daughter. Because I was traveling alone, his friendliness was so nice for me. He helped planning my trip, and his friend Hana cooked the lovely Irish Breakfast. The homemade bread is my favourite! I would love to stay here again, definitely!

Our GPS could not locate this B&B so we finally gave up and called Jim for directions. He actually drove to where we were and led us to their home. After getting settled in our very nice 'room with a view' Dee served coffee, tea & cookies in the sitting room. Jim & Dee joined us and we enjoyed getting to know them and hearing about their lives. They recommended a restaurant for dinner, which was absolutely fabulous. Dee drove us to the restaurant and we took a taxi back. There was a pitcher of water with oranges waiting at our door when we returned. The next morning we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast - I had black pudding for the very first time! Jim led us to a car park in Derry where we then went on a walking tour of the city. We had such a pleasant experience at this B&B and recommend it highly. Jim & Dee are superb hosts!
