We had our wedding reception at The Everglades hotel 13/04/13 and couldn't recommend it enough. The staff in the run up to the wedding and throughout our special day made everything run so smooth and helped our day be carefree. All the staff were very nice and very helpful, especially our wedding coordinator, Mairead who was fantastic throughout and made sure all our needs were catered for. The meal itself was exquisite and catered very well for the vegetarians and coeliac. Guests raved about the meal and quality of service. James our Master of Ceremonies helped to make the day run smooth and nothing was overlooked. The beautiful open fires make for great photos and the rooms are very clean and comfortable. All in all it was a fantastic day, and we would highly recommend The Everglades for any occasion.

We had a great dinner for my dads 75th birthday last night, Niall looked after us well. We all had a great feed, and enjoyed great service all night. We'd recommend the restaurant to anyone especially for family dinners.

Few business travellers relish being away from home regularly, but a place like the Everglades really takes the sting out of a working week.
Loads of free parking, hotel is comfortable, quiet, stylish and very clean.
I stayed in a 'standard' room on 3rd floor and it more than met my needs.
Special mention must go to the receptionist who checked me in - room too warm for you? No problem, a fan is on the way.
Having late night munchies and want an extra pack of biscuits? Here, take two! Nothing was too much trouble.
Bar food was good, although I did think drinks were overpriced.
My only other feedback would be to have blackout blinds in the rooms facing the road (as the green light from the Everglades sign does come through the top of the curtains) and would be good to have a shelf of some sort in the shower to put toiletries on.
I can also recommend a stroll on the river path that runs into town - probably just over a mile to the bridge and a good way to stretch the legs.
I would stay here again.

We stayed here for one night on our tour of Ireland and it was a great place to stay! The rooms are comfortable and well appointed and the beds are fantastic! A wonderful night's sleep was in store for us! Bar staff was very friendly although I felt the drinks were a bit over priced. The food in the restaurant was top notch with professional service. We felt no need to leave the hotel!

I was in Derry on short business trip and booked into this hotel without much thought. The building is a little 1970's in style but once you get inside the hotel is very well appointed. My room was spacious with a large flat screen TV and a very big and extremely comfortable bed.
I ate in the bar in the evening and the food was out of this world. Breakfast was similarly delicious.
Staff were pleasant and helpful. Really cannot fault the hotel.

I have never left a review on this site before however after my stay in this hotel I found it necessary to say something. From start to finish our stay was top class. We where greeted at reception by the general manager who was very welcoming. A real credit to the hotel. He was very knowledgable in the local area and and the hotel and was able to offer some really good recommendations from tours to the food that was on offer. When we arrived at our room (which was spotless) we realised we had been uprgraded to a suite. Such luxury!! The staff could not have been nicer and the food was amazing. If you are wanting to go to Derry definately do it is an amazing city, but make sure you stay at the Everglades. It will be the cherry on top of the cake to complete your stay.

after hearing such good reports about 'everglades' we thought we would have to go. as soon as we arrived we knew it was excellent choice. all the hotel staff were polite,, helpful, friendly and informative and the service could not be faulted . the room was huge and spotless and the beds were amazing. great shower with the best fluffy towels. there was a great varied choice on menu and the food when it came was delicious and the empty plates testament to how well we liked it. after eating it was so relaxing to sit in such a lovely comfortable bar with a roaring fire. breakfast next morning didnt dissappoint either as it was top class with something to suit all tastes. all in all the best hotel in derry we've been to. def wont be long until we are back
