Myself & my 10yr old daughter stayed last weekend as part of a group visiting Derry for an event. This hotel was a relevation. From check-in which was friendly and efficient, to the fantastic service from the staff in the bar & lounge area I honestly couldn't find fault. Our ground floor room was a good size and nicely decorated. Although we didn't spend a lot of time in the room it seemed to have everything we might have needed. The beds were very comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. The bathroom had a walk in shower rather than a bath (which doesn't bother me, especilaly when the water pressure is a good as this was). My daughter loved the little duck and I have to admit he came home with us! Both the bedroom and public areas were spotlessly clean.
We ate one evening meal in the hotel's restaurant which we really enjoyed. Highlight for both of us though was the hotel breakfast! We treated ourselves to the hot buffet. This was restocked regularly, and I know its a small detail, but I really hate those buffets with dried out bacon and rubbery eggs. This food was all freshly cooked and I have yet to have a better hotel breakfast. Although the restaurant was busy, our dishes were cleared quickly and I was offered fresh tea before asking for it. Impressive service indeed! Each table had a little booklet explaining where the hotel sourced its food from. I thought this was a lovely touch & was delighted to see how many local producers were used.
There are other hotels with a more central location for the city - but I would doubt that any could match the level of service from the staff in The Evergaldes. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.
