We spent two nights at the City Hotel in Derry. The hotel is very nice. Our room was very comfortable. The buffet breakfast was good. The location is very good! We had a nice view of the Peace Bridge and it was a short walk to the city walls and Free Derry.

Went here for lunch and a few drinks. Just had soup and sandwiches but they were nice. Moved into the bar then and had a few drinks - not badly priced and very friendly staff both in the restaurant and the bar. Have never stayed here as it's in my home town but food is good and service is good... More

On a last minute whim we decided to stay over in Derry having come from the Giants Causeway and through tripadvisor came across this hotel. The hotel has free wifi, free parking (although you might need to arrive early to make sure you get some). Due to wifi problems I called the hotel direct and got a great deal of... More

This is Derry's best hotel, by all accounts. Its a medium sized commercial hotel and is perfectly adequate, if not particularly special. First comment - excellent Reception staff - Rebecca and colleagues - all were super friendly and efficient. I would employ them anytime. We took a room on the "superior" 7th floor and were pleasantly surprised to be given... More

Had a lovely visit to Derry last week over the Halloween Break. Great City to be in. Hotel was lovely and comfortable. Hotel central to all entertainment and shops. Down side was only one lift working so queues were forming and in the restaurant it was busy so had a long wait. Desk staff very efficient.

Myself and two friends had a two night stay and we certainly where not disappointed. We arrived a bit early for check in but staff quickly kept our cases safely enabling us to have a quick bite to eat in the bar area which was delicious and staff really friendly before we went to do a spot of shopping.

fairly typical city centre hotel, i was there on a wednesday night one a business trip and found the hotel very practical and within walking distance of most of the amenities you need. My only real problem was that the extractor fan in the bathroom was very noisy and on permanately however the stay was okay.

Have just come to the end of a lovely break at this comfortable and well-situated hotel. The rooms were very quiet, spacious and modern with easily adjustable heating. The hotel was busy over this Halloween period but I found the staff to be always polite and good humoured in spite of their heavy workload. Unfortunately I felt I couldn't rate... More
