“Clean & Cozy, a great find in Derry”
Reviewed July 8, 2009

We had the pleasure of staying at Arkle House for 3 nights in June. Our extended family has lived in town for years, but now that we're all grown up, couch surfing isn't ideal when coming to visit. At the recommendation of my aunt we contacted Terry and Sally, who were just lovely to work with from day one. Terry even noticed a discrepence in my online reservation, and quickly emailed to confirm, and rebook the proper dates/number of room.

The house is beautifully decorated, the rooms are clean, comfortable, and you feel like a member of the family, rather than a room number to the concierge. We enjoyed chatting with our hosts, the big traditional Irish breakfast every morning, and free internet access. Overall Arkle was a great alternative to a hotel down town, and I will recommend it to anyone else looking for a place to stay in Derry.....with 30 first cousins, someone will certainly need to stop in at some point!

Me and my partner stayed at Arkle house when up in Derry for a visit.
It was by far the nicest place I've stayed in. The Couple how run it are very obliging. The husband even offered to give us a lift to the bus station. There's a beautiful garden out the front that you can relax in with a BBQ, table and chairs. It's hidden away from the main road so it's very private. It's very close to all the shops, bars and restaurants with the cabs there costing only £3.50 to go anywhere around the town. You are asked what time you'd like breakfast at instead of being told what time it's served like in most places, and it's delicious and hot! Defiantly will be staying there again next time I'm up.

I stayed at Arkle House for a weekend as I was attending a wedding. Immediately I was made to feel at home by Sally, the landlady. She was helpful, kind and struck a perfect balance between being the consumate host whilst ensuring that visitors had their own space and privacy.

Arkle House is a family run B&B and it feels like it. Comfy beds, superb breakfasts and great tips on the area. The city centre is only 5 minutes away and, being just outside was perfect.

I thoroughly reccomend Arkle House to you all!

We both really enjoyed staying here. The food was fantastic and there was plenty of it. The owners Gerry and Sally made us both very welcome and were lovely people. Gerry himself offered to pick me up which i felt was an extremely kind and thoughtful act. The accommadation was fab and cozy and quiet, there was a beautiful garden.I was very impressed that there was both internet ,and fully equipped kitchen facilities for their guests use. all in all i would come here again
