Stayed in this hotel for the third time in June 2105. As always, staff very friendly and helpful. Bar area great, they serve a great pint of Smithwicks! Booked an ordinary room this time - excellent room with large and comfortable bathroom, large comfortable bed and great study desk. However, at £120 it wasn't cheap. Breakfast was disappointing, food was...

This is both an efficient business hotel and one for more idle visitors like us. It's very easy to find and has a good car park - and our room had a wonderful view of the river Foyle flowing outside. The breakfast was very good - a buffet and eat as much as you like. It's just outside the City...

Located in the waterfront within a short walk to the historical center, restaurants and shopping areas. It a older hotel but well maintain. They have a policy of no replacing the towels unless you ask for it and of replacing the bed sheets every 3 days. They use the excuse of saving the environment but in my opinion is of...

This place is ideally suited for the finish of the Derry Marathon, and is about 400m from the Guildhall, and the city centre. Its got good views over the river from the windows facing that way. I can't really put my finger on it, but it did not feel very 4 star to me. The car park was full when...

The hotel is well located and in easy walking distance of sights; it is clean and comfortable. The staff were really helpful and friendly. The breakfast had a good hot and cold buffet selection.
