I spent a night alone at Darby's and It was wonderful. Thanks to Paul (or Paolo!) and Wenche, they made me feel like home since I rang the door. It is a fantastic and historical building placed ten minutes walk from the city center or Gamle Stavanger. Paul gave me very interesting info about the family that built It: the interior is amazing and looks even better than you can see in the pictures. They served a marvellous breakfast and in the evening I could appreciate (even though just for few minutes because It was late) the beautiful terrace they have. I wanna thank them again for the wonderful hospitality, they are the perfect hosts. I come back for sure next time I will visit Stavanger.

The extremely welcoming hosts have made such a beautifully decorated house with clean and nice rooms. The beds were comfortable, the room spacious and the bathroom was warm and delicate. Only a short walk down to the colourful street. The breakfast was extravagant and delicious. Thank you for the Darby's experience!

Darby's is a brilliant inn run by one of the most wonderful couples (Paul and Wenche) we have met in our travels. It is a very storied inn, famous for writers visiting and we can see why. We enjoyed a tea and treats on the patio before heading to walk the city. It is in a quiet neighbourhood, a short stroll to the bus stops and harbour. The rooms are so comfortable you may not want to leave. Ask Paul and Wenche for their restaurant recommendations; they will not steer you wrong. Brekky is a delicious spread of nordic specialities. If offered a homemade smoothie, say YES. They are a special recipe and outstanding.

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights here in September. We enjoyed our visit from the time we walked through the front door until the time that we had to sadly leave for our next adventure in Norway. Darby’s Inn is truly exceptional (beautifully furnished and conveniently located). Wenche (the host) and her husband Paul excel in making you feel at home, ensuring that you enjoy your breakfasts, and in providing information relating to activities and sights in the Stavanger area. Our room was well furnished, the bed was large and comfortable, and the en-suite bathroom was well outfitted for our every need. At our suggestion, my wife’s cousin (from France) and his wife joined us at Darby’s and were given the room across the hall. This was very convenient and the four of us enjoyed our time and breakfasts together. The Inn is one of the best that we have stayed at in our travels. We would, in a heartbeat, return if our future travels take us back to Norway and the Stavanger area.

Lovely welcome here. I felt at home and well-looked after. The room was immaculate, very comfortable and spacious. I also liked sitting out on the terrace. There was a little brew room with tea and coffee, a fridge and a microwave. Breakfast was good with delicious bread and a good variety of things to eat. The hosts, Paul and Wenche, were friendly and helpful. It doesn't have a big sign outside it so best to be familiar with what the building looks like when trying to find it. Parking is not immediately outside the property but a short walk away. You can offload suitcases etc at the door and then park the car afterwards. It was a short, pleasant, safe walk to the town centre and there were a couple of supermarkets nearby. Restaurant recommendations were good.
