I stayed in this bed and breakfast last week and found it to be of a very high standard. The bedrooms are quite spacious and very comfortable. The staff were very friendly. The breakfast were very nice. It is within walking distance from centre. I intend to use this bed and breakfast again.

Would definitely stay here again. Very comfortable beds, lovely breakfast and very friendly staff. This bed and breakfast is within walking distance of the city centre. Rooms were very spacious, one had a double and a single bed and the other room had a double and two single beds.

Great little spot with excellent staff. When I arrived I was greeted by a lovely woman, who quickly got me in and comfortable on the top floor. The room was small but perfectly appointed and clean. The shower was spot on and the free wifi wasnt bad either. From that point I was pretty much left to my own devices...

This was perfect for my needs, the room was cozy, the bathroom a tad small, however this was not an issue me. Stephen was very welcoming, and provided a nice breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay again.

Very friendly and welcoming staff members; clean and pleasant property; good location for the city centre and the Bogside (for the Republican murals). One day to see the city is not long enough though.

Amazing rooms, lovely location and very pleasant staff! This should be five stars! I couldn't fault anything about the place at all. One of the best places I have ever stayed in by far. I would definitely recommend this B&B!
