“Just what we wanted”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the Manor House for one night in September 2013. We had followed the accommodation sign from the A2 and found the house facing us at the T-junction as we entered Eglinton looking exactly what we wanted; a touch of relaxed, elegant living after a long journey. We were lucky enough to be offered a very large, comfortable room with ensuite and triple aspect windows which would have made a great base for a longer stay exploring the area. Despite one window facing the main road we did not notice any noise and had a good night's sleep. The furniture is obviously not new but is what you would expect (and want) in an historic building. There appeared to be ample secure off-road parking around the back. The excellent breakfast with the welcoming owners was cooked to order and was all we could have wanted. The village was very quiet and did not seem to have much to offer except for a friendly pub with good, reaonably priced food. We would certainly stop at The Manor House again.

Our one-night stay in this historic house was delightful. The double room was elegant and spacious and It was a pleasure to have a substantial Irish breakfast in the fine dining room. Alistair was a good host and even joined us for breakfast conversation. The front gate did stick a bit but we were resourceful enough to use the side entrance! An enjoyable stay.

We saw the Manor House driving by and wanted to inquire for a room, but we couldn't get to the doorbell because the garden gate was closed. We couldn't see a phone number of any sign of life so we drove on. But as we couldn't find any other accomodation in the outskirts of Derry (and we wouldn't try looking in town because the Fleadh Cheoil 2013 was going on, we ended up asking at the Tourist Office of Derry, who curiously enough found us a room at the Manor House.
We announced we'd be there by 9pm - eventually arrived about an hour earlier and noone was at home - this time they had left a message se we could call and they came in 40 minutes.
We explained we had tried before and apparently the landlady was at home and it would suffice to push the gate open to get to the doorbell (but even after I knew, I tried and wasn't able to).
Well, it is an ancient Manor house as the name would have it, with lots of antiques and familiy portraits, and a very beautiful garden. Not my favourite style but very well kept and pretty charming in its genre. Unfortunately we didn't feel particularly welcome, which made the whole experience a bit spooky. Even at check-out we had to ring the landlord from our mobile because nobody heard the doorbell or our calls for attention.
As to our room, it was roomy and comfortable but a twin with shared bathroom (and at least in the bathroom som remodernation would have been welcome), neither of which we would have chosen had it not been such a critical timing for accomodation around Derry.

themanorhouse, Owner at The Manor House Eglinton, responded to this review, August 24, 2013
As the gate at the Manor House is dated 1837, it is allowed to be stiff to open. A firm push always opens it. The house being of the Georgian period and listed, it is required to maintain this style so while the bathroom has not been modernised, it has "modern" facilities with a shower in keeping with the style of the period and a bath in which it is possible to lie down in! As the customers had stated they would not be arriving until 9pm, we took the chance of visiting the Fleadh, planning to be back by the time they arrived. When the booking was made, they were aware it was a twin room with separate bathroom.

Stayed for four nights and enjoyed it very much. Wonderful building with elegant gardens. Jean and Alister are gracious hosts with nothing being to much trouble. The rooms are comfortable with wonderful high ceilings. Breakfast is substantial and cooked to order.

Highly recommended. Looking forward to my next visit.

Elegant living in a beautiful historic home. Run by a very pleasant and obliging couple for whom nothing was too much trouble.

Very comfortable nights sleep and substantial breakfast, cooked to order at a time that suited me.

Amazing opportunity to stay in elegant surroundings in a lovely village and great value for money to boot.

Agree 100% with Pamelafro above.

A very up-market B&B at the Manor House. Elegant surroundings, but a lived-in feeling, like you were a house guest of the local gentry. Tasteful but comfortable room (we had a twin with separate bathroom/toilet as we were late bookers). Jean & Alistair were gracious hosts, unobtrusive but made you feel as if you were invited rather then paying guests. Home-made preserves for breakfast, chickens in the courtyard, very 'manor house'. A glimpse of gracious living! Country location, but close to Derry/Londonderry. Excellent restaurant in walking distance in village.

Room Tip: Ensuite rooms no doubt preferable, but separate bathroom okay. Quiet and comfortable twin room - be...
