This isn't a 5* start hotel, but for what you pay it is excellent. Very friendly staff and a comfy bed. Excellent location for Derry city centre. The breakfast was also good. The ensuite bathroom is on the small side (see other reviews), but is well done and has a good shower. Again, for the price, I think this was...

The room that we stayed in was pleasant and clean, and had a great view of the city. The owner was friendly and informative without being intrusive. Breakfast was really good. Definitely worth a return visit

Would definitely stay here again. Very comfortable beds, lovely breakfast and very friendly staff. This bed and breakfast is within walking distance of the city centre. Rooms were very spacious, one had a double and a single bed and the other room had a double and two single beds.

Great little spot with excellent staff. When I arrived I was greeted by a lovely woman, who quickly got me in and comfortable on the top floor. The room was small but perfectly appointed and clean. The shower was spot on and the free wifi wasnt bad either. From that point I was pretty much left to my own devices...

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.
