“Wonderful!”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

My daughter and I stayed here in August 2012. I had mistakenly booked a double bed for my daughter and me. Sally, the owner, understood my discomfort and actually gave us her own room to use. She was also quite friendly, and I enjoyed several "deep" conversations with her. The B&B itself is spotless, beautifully furnished, and a quick and cheap taxi ride to the center of town. Highly recommended.

We were lucky enough to be placed in this B&B by Paddywaggon Tours. It was a great place to stay. Our room was lovely, overlooking the garden. Breakfast was great. We were just sorry we didn't have more time to spend there.

We stayed at Arkle House for 6 nights and had a great experience. The owner "Sally" was a wonderful hostess. She showed us to our room, the room was comfortable and clean, and we had access to other common rooms including a mini kitchen area. Breakfast was excellent each day. Our daughter was attending an event at the university and Arkle House was conveniently located 1 km away. We found that it was well located for access to all the activities in the area. Sally, thank you for contributing to our wonderful visit to Derry.

My husband and I were staying in Temple Patrick for a few nights at the Hilton. We fell in love with Derry and wanted to stay close to the town. From there we felt it was a good point for a couple of day trips. The price was very reasonable and it was even during the Clipper events which filled up most of the other accommodations in town. Jane at the tourist board knew most of the B&B owners and highly recommended Sally and Terry.
The rooms were lovely and the breakfast was good quality with a variety of hot breakfast, breads, fruits and yogurt.
What we most liked about Arkle House were the owners, Terry and Sally Cassidy. Every day we were asked what our plans were, they really did not want us to miss any of the charms of the city. One day we told them where we were heading and they printed out some places that they thought we would enjoy. They let us know restaurants in town that were having discount nights and had reasonable prices. Jane from the tourist board mentioned to Sally that it was my 40th birthday and Sally put a candle in my boiled egg and sang Happy Birthday to me.
On the night before we left we came back to the B&B and sat in the sitting room having great conversation with Sally and Terry and another couple staying at the B&B, Brendan and Marie.
Sally and Terry really made us feel like part of the family as opposed to just guests. They are AWESOME! We are planning on doing the trip again next year.
