My new husband and I had our wedding reception in this hotel recently. The staff could not have been any more accommodating. The premises are all very clean. Many of our family members stayed in the hotel too. The food was delicious, the rooms were basic but perfect, the bridal suite could be doing with a little updating but as...

We have just spent two nights in this hotel and were pleasantly surprised at how good it was. It is definitely much better than it looks from the outside, but its best asset is the food that they serve. We ate in the restaurant on both nights and enjoyed it thoroughly both times. Breakfast is also very good, its buffet...

We had a 2 night stay recently as we wanted to be reasonably near the NW Clinic at Ballykelly. (This location would also be handy for Derry.) Firstly I think the decor in the lounge bar and reception area could do with being refreshed but that did not bother us particularly. I have to say however that the staff in...

This was a lovely hotel with great staff. The reception was very welcoming and the restaurant staff were great. I had a fantastic meal in the restaurant and would definitely recommend it. I went to the bar later on and there was no customers in there and no one serving behind the bar. It was open but no staff. The...

Having used many Best Western hotels through work in England I was not expecting to be blown away with the quality of service and "feel" of the White Horse. All public areas were well maintained and the room we had was faultless. The staff could not have done more to make us welcome and no request was too much trouble....
