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.

I stayed here for over a week when in port with a yacht race. Sally and Terry were extremely friendly and helpful throughout. The girls serving breakfast (Regina and Ann Marie) were great fun and full of local information. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks for such a warm welcome to Derry!

Sir you had a reservation with us but did not secure it with a credit card as you were asked to do. You arrived late in the day and the room had already been allocated. It's your own fault. The room you described so scurrilously is the room my two daughters grew up in, and I resent your remarks. I...
