“Great Sunday Lunch and Service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

I took my elderly mother out for lunch in The Everglades Hotel, we had a lovely experience and the staff were not only very friendly, but also very accommodating especially for my mother and her poor mobility. The food was spectacular with a beautiful variety of salads and desserts. I would recommend the lunch to anyone and everyone! first class.

Just finished our break at the Everglades hotel and had an excellent time. The hotel itself I cannot fault, great surroundings, close to the city centre and a perfect place to stay.

All the staff have been very welcoming and made us feel very at home. I also must recommend The Grill restaraunt within the hotel, great food and drink, great service and again very welcoming staff.

We will definately be back!! :D

This hotel is wonderful in every way! I come here without fail at least three times a week, sometimes by myself to get work done in the cosy surrounds of the lounge with the roaring open fire or sometimes with colleagues for a business lunch in the lounge. The staff are very attentive and swift in their service. Everyone from our company loves this place and the little bits of attention to detail and luxury such as the complimentary tray bakes with each and every tea and coffee and linen napkins sets this place apart from the other local places. There is also plenty of parking which makes it the perfect place to escape from the headache of traffic in the city centre for an hour.

Well Done Everglades! The best tea and coffee and food qaulity in town! Amazing!

My friend and I stayed for two nights at Everglades hotel . We got a very good deal from their website . £200 for 2 nights b&b and 1 evening meal . Don't expect cosmopolitan expect comfy.
The food was amazing. What was really nice was that a booklet showing where all the produce came from. Everything was good wholesome local food .
The staff are so friendly and helpful.
We did the tour of Derry walls . If you go to Derry please do this tour. Martin mccrossan who leads the tour is Witty and informative . You will not be bored . He is not one sided and knows everything about Derry!
Free hotel parking and easy to get into city centre.

I love getting away for family or girlie weekends and the Everglades is my favourite place to go to. It is a great place to relax and unwind. We visited the hotel over Valentines weekend and enjoyed a fantastic meal in The Grill restaurant on the saturday night. We then had drinks in the Library Bar where a guy sang and played the piano. Breakfast at the hotel is always good, there is so much choice and it set us up for a day of shopping and bowling with the kids. We had food at the bar later that night which was lovely and relaxing by the fire in the lobby area. The hotel staff are amazing they are always on hand to help with anything and are very welcoming and friendly. I look forward to going back really soon we always leave wanting to stay longer.
