We had booked a twin room for a short business overnight stay for a colleague and myself. The room itself was a huge room, with plenty of room for our luggage, a desk with chair and another table with 2 chairs allowed for plenty of space to work during the afternoon. Only downside was that the receptionist who checked us... More

Stayed 3 nights here late January and cannot fault it. Perfectly sited on the banks of the river Foyle adjacent the town centre. Perfect for everything, and the highlight for me... only a couple of minutes walk from Waterloo St and the wonderful entertainment and hostelries that abound this steep little thoroughfare. If you're into traditional Irish music then it's... More
