Pleasant stop for night in Derry
We were driving South and decided to stop in Derry as the sun was starting to set and choice the Maldron because of the offer of family rooms with a double and a single, a room with a view and cheery yellow linens in the photos (as well as other positive reviews).
Unfortunately, even though we were treated to a lovely golden sunset up on the hill the Maldron is situated, we received no view, no cheery yellow linens, and no family room. The room we had booked 15 minutes earlier on expedia was not available and we had to take a double which was readied for us in 10 minutes with a cot, but the room had very little color in it. The view out the window was another wall of the hotel unless you disabled the safety catch on the window and stuck out your head to see the river and walking bridge.
I really had expected more. However, at the reception we were greeted by a very helpful young lady who was very apologetic and switched the room she did have available for a larger one that could fit the cot. I appreciate that overbooked is overbooked and didn't complain although I would certainly have liked a discount to have been offered.
The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and we all slept very well in our quiet room. My wife also enjoyed a bath in the good sized bath tub. The free wifi worked well in our room and we all were very happy with the included breakfast. Free parking in the basement.
