I booked this trip as a Christmas/Mother's Day present for my mother. Neither of us had been to Northern Ireland and she really wanted to see the giants causeway, which was the reason for booking N.Ireland. we were made to feel so welcome from the get go, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing ever felt like too much...

The room was clean and the decor was modern. The bed was very comfortable. We were met by friendly, helpful staff. The location was good as it was only a 10 min walk downhill into town. I would definitely stay there again.

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
