Ours was a late booking and fairly late arrival and perhaps we were unfortunate in there being no other room available other than the one allocated to us. We asked for, and were given, a twin room with facilities. However I have as yet in all my years stayed in a room of such a diminished size for two. The main bed room would have been fine as a single although even then the en suite would have been overly cramped. The minuscule wash basin, complete with loose hot tap and a trickle of hot water, would more have suited a dolls house.
The owner describes Arkle House in the original brochure as a "Gentleman's residence", that was built around 1900. They go on to say that the property has been "recently refurbished", with great care taken to maintain the original charm and ambiance (sic) of this lovely old building". Perhaps this "recent refurbishment" was some years ago as it does not seem to reflect the current state of the property that has evidence of 'fraying at the edges' in certain areas. e.g..the tap in our en suite, worn carpet in our room, paint work that needs refreshing, a curtain tie back hanging from wall in breakfast room. Overall he place seems a little tired.
Perhaps we were unfortunate but we could not connect to WiFi and the television would only receive Irish Republic stations.
Although my mattress was comfortable the pillows were ancient, long overdue for replacement and from a hygiene aspect I wondered why pillow protectors were not used. Although the duvet cover seemed clean enough the duvet itself had some stains.
The breakfast served was acceptable for this level of establishment.
I would consider staying here again although if doing so I would ask for a different room.

Room Tip: Try to check the room out before just accepting the room allocated to you.

This is a genuinely warm and welcoming place to stay, which is spacious and ideally situated. We have stayed at Arkle House twice and have felt completely at home on both occasions. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and the selection for breakfast is fantastic. This B & B comes highly recommended due to its outstanding value and Irish Charm.

Thanks again Sally and Terry, we'll be back again soon.

We both enjoyed the lovely Arkle, very good comfortable room with hot shower and nice kitchen that guests could access and use to help themselves to tea and coffee and biscuits. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice of nice foods etc.

Sheila the host was very welcoming and helped with advice and directions on the area. All in all a very good stay and would recommend it.

Room Tip: The Cosh bar nearby is good for an evening meal.

We were travelling for a bachelor party road trip. Nothing too wild, mind. But this was an excellent stay, and our hosts were fantastic. The breakfast was unbeatable, particularly, with excellent locally sourced materials (the bacon was almost unbearably good). I will emphatically recommend this as a stop for anyone in Derry.
