“Beautiful hotel on the River Foyle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2011

This is a beautiful 4 star hotel in downtown Derry, Northern Ireland. Our room was very nice and spotlessly clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and they served a very nice buffet breakfast in the restaurant. Hotel guests have use of a full service health club and indoor pool located inside the hotel. It is located blocks from the historic city walls of Derry and only about a block from the Guildhall.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river have very nice views.

Decent hotel, decent location. However rooms were HOT!!! Even with air con on full blast cold, then I tried opening windows. Chocolate melted hot. Bathroom door wouldn't close, but that's the height of issues - friendly staff, good location, quiet and clean. I'll stay again next time I'm up.

I spent the month of March in the City Hotel on a long term work assignment. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff. They were super friendly, always willing to help and go the extra mile to make sure I was happy.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on 5th or 6th floor.

Everything about our stay in the city hotel was fantastic. The accommodation, location, food, friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, all played a big part in making our short family break a most enjoyable experience. We will be recommending this hotel to all our friends.

Hi, My fiancé and myself recently went to Derry for my 21st birthday, the minute we arrived the girl Laura at the reception so very very helpful, she gave us a map and
showed us the nightclubs, resturants etc. We where there 2nights, just wish it had of been longer. The food was out of this world, nothing was out of place, I had sirloin steak both nights because it was just define and cooked to prefection, hats of to the chef. The room we stayed in was a smoking room it was fresh and inviting, we has a baby elephant on arrival made from towels, great touch. The city hotel was right smack bang in the middle of the shops, the bars, the resturants, we even got room service on a busy saturday night at 2:30am when we came back from a night drinking. Definatley would go back, nothing I could fault. :]
