“Great stay - thank you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had a very pleasant stay with Mary and Jimmy. The bedroom was very comfortable wit a really cosy bed and lovely shower. The breakfast was very well cooked. Mary gave great advice on where to visit. A very good stay - thank you.

Good convenient spot for touring or visiting Derry/Londonderry, quiet and beautiful view from breakfast room. Comfortable room, excellent breakfast, very kind and helpful hostess who advised us on local visits. Do check the website before arriving how to get there as our sat nav was somwhwat out of date and could not locate it

I was very happy with this choice while visiting Derry. It's a 10 minute drive into the city and close to beautiful drives in Donegal. Mary and Jimmy are friendly, welcoming and informative. The view from the breakfast room is stunning. My room was beautifully clean and comfortable, with the sheep in neighbouring field as mentioned by another traveller. The only downside was the path to front door runs outside the window so not much privacy on long light evenings.

Some B&Bs are like small hotels, others are like family homes. Elagh View is the latter. It's a large, pleasant one-story house whose bedrooms have been concerted into guest rooms. The rooms and bathrooms are quite small, but very clean and functional. The proprietors are extremely kind and helpful people, and they helped us with directions and restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was very good. The location would be a bit awkward for someone without a car, but if you do have one this is an excellent alternative to a city hotel.

We spent several very enjoyable days in Derry and this B&B, 10 minutes out of the city, turned out to be in the most lovely rural location. We were welcomed with tea and biscuits and made to feel at home by Mary and Jimmy who were great hosts and generous with their time. Breakfast was lovely and taken in the dining room looking out over a field of sheep and the hills beyond. Our room was not large, but clean and comfortable. The only negative being the sound insulation between adjoining bathrooms, with everything from light switches, to bathroom fans and showers, being rather audible. Would definitely recommend.

Owners are very friendly (including their dog, Foxy). At late night, sheep would come to the grassland next to the window. I could watch them in a close distance and see them playing, fighting, sleeping…Breakfast was great with a very nice dining room and view.

My wife and I stayed for one night during our visit to NI and wish we could've stayed longer. The house has a beautiful view over the countryside a few miles outside Derry. Mary was very welcoming and cooked an excellent full Irish breakfast in the morning. Our room was small but luxuriously furnished, Mary gave us the ensuite room even though we'd paid for the one with a separate bathroom.

In short this was the perfect bnb, all others should stay here to see how it should be done.
