I cannot say enough in the way of favorable comments, about this hotel. Great friendly service and extremely helpful staff who go the extra mile (e.g.made sure we got into the parking garage OK and met up with us in the garage to check). Great lounge bar too and nice buffett style breakfast with several good selections.The location is a close walk to all the local sights, the Derry Walls, the Peace Bridge, great restaurants and lots of shopping. We very fortunate to have a beautiful view of the Peace Bridge and the river from our room. Wish we had stayed an extra night, but sad to say our scedule didn't allow for it.
I would highly recommend staying here when you visit Derry.

Room Tip: Ask for a view room and higher up.

We had a great stay in Derry at the City Hotel. The room was immaculate. Breakfast was delicious with lots of choice. Service was excellent. Parking is right on site. The hotel is in an excellent location, within easy walking distance to all attractions.

We have just arrived back from a 2 night stay Derry city hotel, the staff were very helpful from the desk to the house keeping staff, the rooms are clean and well laid out. our room was over looking the river, beautiful day and evening views. Breakfast was delicious, fresh and a wide range of food was available. The hotel is ideally situated in a central area but you still get a relaxed atmosphere. We will definately be back to the city hotel

Room Tip: Ask for a river view and an upgrade was only £15

We are the sort of people who are VERY picky about our hotels! However, with the City Hotel, everything is absolutely fantastic.
We had our wedding at the City Hotel in August 2011. Our guests stayed in the rooms and were all really pleased with the quality and service. Our wedding planner at the hotel was called Claire Gormley and she was brilliant. She made the day go without any hitches. Nothing was ever too much much trouble to her.
The ballroom is beautiful. It overlooks the river and the newly built peace bridge. It was the perfect setting.
The level of service at the hotel was first class. Everyone is really friendly, porters, receptionists, bar staff, restaurant staff....everyone.

This was our first visit to Derry and we picked the Hotel for its location, we had looked on the web site but we were still overjoyed when we arrived there, alll the staff were so freindly and helpfull nothing was too much trouble, the breakfast was arwsome well worth getting out of bed for, we did eat in the hotel on the last night and found the food was exellent and very good value for money, we have decied we will be going back in March to see the thing swe could not fit in.

Stayed here on a recent trip to Derry. Wonderful location, right in the heart of the city, and very accessible when driving. Had dinner in the restaurant and had an absolutely beautiful meal. We got a great deal in the restaurant. Very helpful staff and very comfortable rooms.
