“Regular Guests at this Great Hotel”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

We stay at this hotel regularly on mixed business & pleasure visits. It's situated half a mile off the Foyle Bridge on the main road into Derry with Excellent car parking.
There is a brilliant riverside walk into the City that takes about 20 minutes.

Reception staff are excellent, friendly and very helpful. The rooms are great but twin beds are more conducive to a good night's sleep that the rather small double beds, especially if you're a restless sleeper with a bad back!

Restaurant is very good with attentive and expert staff. Food great. Dinner menu and wine list extensive without being too expensive. Breakfast (buffet) what you would expect from a hotel of this standing.

Excellent centre for touring into Donegal, the Antrim and Causeway Coast and the Sperrins.

All in all, an excellent hotel with great staff and food.

Room Tip: Room on road side of hotel quieter late at nigh rather than rooms facing on to car park.

Dear ‘Eddie C’,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Da Vinci’s Hotel, it is always a pleasure to read such positive feedback. We especially like to hear from well-seasoned travelers who have stayed with us on numerous times. That our facilities and customer service exceeds your expectations. Our hotel is located a short distance from the city centre and the new promenade you mentioned makes the walk into the city centre most enjoyable for our guests. We are very fortunate at Da Vinci’s Hotel to have an amazing team of staff that was not just hired for their skills but for their warm and friendly personalities. Our bedrooms are the largest in the city and are very popular with our guests so I am pleased that the additional double bed was pleasing for you. We can’t wait to welcome you back again soon.

Best wishes,
Natasha O’Hea

first time staying at this hotel but will not be last. Couldn't believe it has a 3 star rating Well it may be 3 star but the staff deliver a 5 star service. Friendly yet professional and nothing seemed to be too much bother. A great experience thank you.

Just back form a one night break at Da Vinci's, and i can't speak highly enough of this hotel. Receptionist who checked us in was polite, welcoming and friendly. Our room was spotless, bed was comfortable the whole atmosphere of this hotel is relaxing and welcoming. Food in the restaurant was amazing as was breakfast the next morning. My husband was gutted when we left the next day wanted to stay another night. Will definitely be back.

Stayed here at beginning of october, having a wee girlie night away and we all had a brill time. the only downside is that we only stayed for 1 night!

Arrived late in the day, about 8pm. Immediately impressed by the reception area. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Went to our rooms which were spacious, clean and comfortable.

We had booked a table in the restaurant for 8.30, thoroughly enjoyed a two course meal (wish there could have been a 3rd course but we were all too full!) We were the last the leave the restaurant at almost midnight, but at no point did we feel rushed and unwanted.

All went back to our rooms to sleep off the feed, excellent night sleep had by all. Hotel was quiet and rooms perfectly dark to allow deep sleep

Breakfast the next day was YUM. Buffet style, help yourself which just means no problems with having seconds. Scrambled eggs were excellent, perfectly seasoned. As we had been in different rooms we all drifted down to breakfast at different times, between 8 and 10 am. No problems with the table being occupied throughout by our group. And again, we were last to leave!

we all had a lovely stay and would definately recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area!

Dear ‘William7093’,
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us, we really appreciate all feedback from our guests. It is a pity that you did not mention to our reception staff the issue you had with the drainage as we could have sorted this problem right away. As you have mentioned our bedrooms are of good standard and are in fact the largest bedrooms in the city so our guests do get to enjoy a spacious modern room during their stay. Our standard bedrooms have 2 double beds and this is to most guests satisfaction but perhaps when you are visiting again you should consider booking our superior rooms or our Morrison suite that have deluxe super king beds. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to welcoming you back soon.

Stayed there in sept 2012 Hotel just in outskirts of city but nice prom walk from hotel to city center.Rooms are clean and nice.Food is excellent.What makes this hotel stand out from most others is the friendliness of the staff.They are extremely knowledgeable and helpful.You can see quite clearly that the staff enjoy working there and it shines through with abundance.
The bar is also very nice.
On the wall from the reception along the alleyway to the bar there are numerous photographs of singers and sport stars who have stayed there.Even they know how good an hotel this is.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river Liffey.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am pleased that you had an enjoyable experience. We are delighted with the new promenade from the hotel to the city center, it has been a real hit with guests allowing them to take in the views of the River Foyle while strolling into the city. It is lovely to hear your kind comments about our staff, all the team work really hard to please our guests and it is excellent to receive such positive feedback. We look forward to welcoming you back soon, during 2013 there are a host of amazing events taking place in the city so keep an eye out and perhaps your next stay could coincide with an event.
