“Felt more like being a guest in a friend's home.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were lucky enough to book a room on the weekend Radio 1's Big Weekend was in town. We checked in early on Sunday morning and were greeted with coffee and toast despite the fact we only had breakfast booked for the next morning. We went away to the festival and returned late to a comfortable and well turned out room. After a lovely shower in a very clean bathroom we enjoyed a delicious full Irish Breakfast. The owners were so friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for you. I would recommend a stay here to anyone - friends, couples or families.

Myself and fiancé stayed here for one night on the 24th May 2013 and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. We were greeted by one of the owners who was so friendly and helpful. The rooms are a bit small but they are very comfortable and clean. The location of the hotel is about a 10 minute walk into the city centre which is perfect and there are plenty of bars and restaurants nearby which the owners very kindly recommended. Breakfast was a great wee fry-up (perfect hangover cure) and very tasty. I will definitely stay here again and recommend it to everybody if you are looking for a nice, comfortable and affordable place to stay.

Nice clean room in a good location. The room was small but it was very clean. We were on the third floor but Pat (the owner) carried our luggage up stairs for us. The most exceptional part of this experience was how genuinely nice the owners were. Would absolutely stay again.

We have just arrived back from a 3 day break in Derry, and found this place to be very friendly, very clean and the breakfasts were lovely.Run by a lovely friendly couple Belinda and Pat. Rooms quite small, buts its all you need as your never in the rooms long enough. Very central, just a short walk to the shopping centre and the many bars. highly recommended.. Carmel and Andrew

Room Tip: We had a quiet room at the back.

The B&B is very well located just outside the Derry walls. It is about a 5-10 minute walk to the walls. The building is tall and narrow. Our room was on the top floor but there was no problem at all with Pat, the owner, offering and then assisting with our luggage. There are good eating places about 2 minutes inside the walls and a supermarket right next door with some takeaway places also. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was comfortable. There was ample hot water for the shower. Breakfast was cereal, juice and a hot cooked course. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Car parking is in the street directly in front of the b&B.

Our room was very small for 2 people. One side of the double bed was just about 15-20cm from the wall so it meant that one of us had to clamber over the other to get in/out of the bed. The bathroom, while functional, was very small. If you were on a budget then this B&B would be a very good choice.

A great little spot to stay whilst in Derry. Near to the city walls, and a quick walk to a great dinner location that would suit all tastes (recommended by the host). Pat was very helpful and couldn't do enough to make sure we had a comfortable stay. The breakfast was delicious and the free internet worked well. Thanks Pat! Sam & Tania.

Opted for the standard double without ensuite bathroom. The room was very small (one side of the bed touched the wall), but was large enough for the two of us. We simply moved the bed out a bit. The bathroom next to the room was large and had a good shower.

The hosts were very friendly and gave great suggestions for food and sightseeing in the town. Standard but filling breakfast. The location can't be beat, just outside the city wall and a short walk from the bus station, but watch the steep hill to the center of town if you're dragging your luggage. If you take the wall path, it's less steep.

The B&B doesn't take credit cards, so bring cash or use the ATM in the center of town.

Room Tip: Spend a little more and get the ensuite double. You'll appreciate the extra room.
