We stayed in the City Hotel for a family birthday last year and were really impressed with the hotel. For the occasion we booked a suite on the top floor of the hotel (for which we needed a special swipe in the lift which made us feel very important)!! The room was beautifully decorated, very modern, funky and comfy. Bathroom... More

Great stay booked junior hit was was good. I have stayed here before and stayed in a superior room. I would choose a superior room again as it just as good as junior suit and does not cost as much. Staff are excellent at the city. Restarant staff couldn't be better.

Stayed for a short break in February. Hotels in Derry seem quite expensive for the standard. i would descibe the hotel as average. It is very centrally located and is perfect for a walk around the city. Get there early because the car park is quite small and the spaces are tiny. The evening I arrived the lobby was quite...

Enjoyed a two night stay in a superior double on floor 6...only £170 for bed and breakfast, so excellent value for money. All the staff we encountered were very helpful, especially the restaurant staff. Both breakfast and dinner were very nice. The hotel is very central, and we had a good sized cosy warm, quiet corner room overlooking the Foyle.... More
