My wife and I stayed here for a weekend break and we had an absolutely incredible time! On arrival the hotel looked absolutely fabulous, and met our high expectations of 'Hastings Hotels' as we have stayed in the ‘Europa’ and the ‘Culloden’ on previous occasions.
The staff are obviously well trained and are particularly attentive - from Reception, Housekeeping, Bar, Restaurant to the duty manager James who introduced himself when we were checking in - I cannot thank them enough for making our stay exceptionally relaxing and enjoyable.
We dined in the comfortable candle-lit 'Satchmo's Restaurant' during our stay and it was heartening to see how the ‘Everglades’ has taken pride in using the abundance of fine local produce which the North of Ireland should be proud of! Fine Fresh Breads, Meats and Cheeses which were exceptional! Even breakfast boasts a high quality selection of local produce including handmade cereals and a healthier yet traditional full Irish Breakfast! – It was without a doubt the best we have tasted!
Being a “young” couple (or so we like to think) we wanted to stay in a Hotel close to the City Centre so we could explore the beautiful City of Derry during the day, but also enjoy the clubs and pubs in town at night. The Everglades is situated in a quiet and humble location on the edge of the city, and a taxi into the Hustle and Bustle of the City didn’t cost us more than a few pounds!
Our room was a great size with a massive bed and a huge flat screen TV which my wife particularly enjoyed! (Pity we couldn't take that home). It was exceptionally clean, with everything you need for your stay. Due to the quiet location of the Hotel on the outskirts of the City we had no problem in falling into a nice comfortable sleep after a night in town.
When we got home we figured that we only owe it to the exceptional staff to let others know about our stay! Well Done Everglades and Thank You for a Great Weekend! We will most definitely return in future.
