Very quiet location yet only 10 minutes walk from the walled town. Pubs and restaurants a plenty even 2 Wetherspoon pubs. Great breakfast, clean and comfortable room and your car can stay out the front not being used for the duration

Great location and friendly host. The property is convenient to the city centre with ample parking and a friendly owner. The basics were just right. A superbly comfortable bed and excellent breakfast choice.

This was perfect for my needs, the room was cozy, the bathroom a tad small, however this was not an issue me. Stephen was very welcoming, and provided a nice breakfast in the morning. I would definitely stay again.

Very friendly and welcoming staff members; clean and pleasant property; good location for the city centre and the Bogside (for the Republican murals). One day to see the city is not long enough though.

Amazing rooms, lovely location and very pleasant staff! This should be five stars! I couldn't fault anything about the place at all. One of the best places I have ever stayed in by far. I would definitely recommend this B&B!

Although our room was tiny, its position on the top floor meant lovely views. The help from staff was useful in getting us around some of the key sights of the town. This venue has a good central location too, so walking everywhere is easy. The breakfast was also good.

Beautiful house, Stephen is very friendly and helpful. It is a 5 minute walk up a steep hill from the town centre, well worth it for the views over Derry from the windows. Comfy bed, decent shower and a yummy breakfast, I am a happy bunny!

An uphill walk to the place. Not far from city center. Room clan and beds comfortable. Breakfast good. Private external bathroom spacious. The water from the shower will overflow if you let it run to fast. Otherwise a good stay. Will recommend.
