very handy for city centre , had trouble getting in and out of middle bunk.
A friendly , clean hotel. Great location in the city! Good views, nothing was a problem for the staff. Food was good. I’d definitely stay again, if I visited Derry.
Nice inside the wall and inside parking a little tight but ok if you have a small car.
Great city great area the property is in a good spot to
Great location, historic vibe, staff are all fabulous and great bar and restaurant.
We had left our wine in the car when we turned it over to valet service and had asked for it to be retrieved. By the time we got back to our room after dinner the wine was there along with two wine glasses. Just another example of the quality of the service.
Very close to town. Parking is a nightmare so if you stay here you might be best off taking a bus from Belfast, but the rooms are lovely and the breakfast nice
The hotel is very near all the attractions in the city. There is a car park attached ...which has a connecting door to the hotel at level 3.
In a compact city like Derry-Londonderry, whichever hotel, guesthouse or bed and breakfastaccommodation you choose to be your base for the duration of your visit, the many attractions of the region are never far away. For the most part, walking everywhere is a realistic option, but you could choose a bicycle, bus or car if you’re feeling less energetic.
The Guildhall in Derry is one of those places that you won’t want to miss. Whichever side of the River Foyle your hotel is to be found this magnificent building is accessible, located as it is on the west bank, near to the curving elegance of the Peace Bridge that spans the waters.
The building was constructed of red sandstone in 1887, blending neo-Gothic and Tudor styles. It has recently undergone a massive restoration, to the tune of nearly £10 million, so is now back to its full glory while still serving as a civic centre.
You will be mesmerised by the colours and reflections of the Guildhall’s stained-glass windows — one of the greatest collections across Ireland. You will be astounded by the concert organ with its 3,132 pipes, to be found in the main hall, still in full working order. And you can soak up the cultural and political history that lies in its very foundations, part of which is demonstrated in an exhibition about the Plantation of Ulster.
In the past, the Guildhall has been destroyed on two separate occasions - once by a devastating fire in 1908 and once by bombing during the Troubles, in 1972. Its magnificence today is a testament to the spirit of optimism that drives the city. It has garnered many national and international awards for its architecture, construction, restoration and heritage.
In front of the Guildhall is a huge city square that is used to host a whole range of events. From your hotel, you’ll be able to amble through the streets to witness such delights as a Halloween Carnival, or the Christmas lights being switched on and a fabulous Christmas market, or Foyle Pride.
It’s a beautiful place to wander, with fountains, superb lighting at night and a good amount of seating - and all close to Londonderry’s shopping, tourist and cultural areas.
A hotel, guesthouse or B&B close to the Guildhall is accommodation close to everything that is at the heart of an amazing city.
