This was once again a great stay in our favourite hotel in Derry. Friendly staff great accommodation and very central. Will continue to make many more visits to Derry and the City Hotel in Derry. Stayed here in October for one night. Not long enough. Never disappointed when we stay at this marvellous hotel.

Stayed here recently as part of a CIE tour. Of the seven hotels we stayed in, this was by far the least desirable. Lighting in room was very inadequate - not enough to read by except for Kindle. Bulbs were probably 15 watt. Like most of rooms on trip there was no clock. Did not receive wake up call but... More

Dear guest Thank you for your review, we hope the poor weather didn't dampen your travels in Ireland too much, we installed energy saving bulbs as part of our "Green" tourism standard and have realised they take too long to reach full brightness therefore are replacing with an eco friendly brighter solution in all our rooms, thank you for your...

Stayed here for one night and had a fabulous time. The staff are excellent, particularly Laura who checked us in and out. She was friendly, knowledgeable, professional and very personable.

We stayed at the City Hotel for 3 nights in wonderful Derry. The hotel is in a great location with easy, secure parking and several good restaurants in the area. We booked late and stayed on the 7th floor penthouse which was very expensive and very luxurious for us. We did not have a room with the best views and... More

Stayed in this hotel recently on the shopping break package which was good value. It is very central to everything in Derry which was ideal. The room was on the 6th floor with good views of the city.

My wife and I visited Derry in the Autumn of 2013 and found the city absolutely enthralling. We went on the City Walk, taking in the Walls and it was really both an opportunity to gain insights into Irish history and the positive and inspiring progress Derry City is making through the Peace Process. The City Hotel is ideally located... More

so, I liked this hotel a lot but it's not a four star as it proclaims. It is centrally located to the city and that is a big advantage. The staff at the desk are helpful.

I have been here for a day on business and have to say that this hotel is quite simply brilliant. From the staff to the room it has been fantastic. I am yet to try the food however colleagues who arrived yesterday have said it is excellent. Such a lovely place.
