Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My impressions of this hotel are mixed. It is generally a good 3-star hotel (but not even close to 4-star as they advertise) located in the very center of Derry and with an excellent restaurant. On the other hand, they have a weird and confusing heating/cooling system, which they centrally turn on and off whenever they decide so (probably to save money) and you don't have any control on it. The rooms are very clean but the emphasize is more on style than substance: you provide fancy robes and (basically useless) slippers, but the furniture is not very functional and sometimes awkward. I stayed in two rooms there - one was OK, but the second (named Castle) was definitely furnished by somebody who never stayed in a hotel. Everything was in the wrong places, everything was awkward and inconvenient. So if you decide to stay in this hotel, try to avoid that room.

This is a wam, friendly hotel which is very well situated within the city. All the staff are very accommodating of guests needs. Loved the welcome bubbles when we arrived and the Mimosas every morning which accompanied our delicious breakfast. Thank you for a delightful few days. We will definitely be back.

Located in the heart of the famous walls; this is one of the greatest hospitality hotels I have ever enjoyed! We were greeted by the most friendly staff that welcomed us with a lovely glass of bubbly! The services are First Class; staff couldn’t be more helpful; every wish was granted with pleasure.

Shipquay is a very special, boutique hotel with an excellent restaurant. The rooms were beautifully decorated and our dinner and breakfast were exceptional. The staff is very professional and so friendly. Shipquay has an excellent location for exploring Derry - close to the walled city and the Peace bridge.

I need more stars. Absolutely delightful stay. Every staff member was kind, efficient and fun. The breakfast included in the bed and breakfast package was amazing and includes offerings for all ages and tastes. I can’t say enough kind things about the food, staff and location.

This hotel is a gem in the heart of the city. The staff are the friendliest, most helpful and attentive I’ve ever met. From our arrival to check out they were fantastic! Especially the girls on reception (Mairead, etc). Bubbles on arrival, mimosas with breakfast, lovely choice of food at breakfast time, made to order. Room on 3rd floor lovely if a little cold perhaps on arrival but did warm up. Only downside to this hotel is the hill but hey that’s Derry!!

The staff at Shipquay Hotel were so friendly and could not have been more accommodating. The room was very comfortable, and they provided a free upgrade as we were celebrating our 2nd wedding anniversary. The breakfast was superb, and the location is perfect, right in the centre of Derry. Would definitely recommend staying here!

From our arrival until we departed we were looked after extremely well. Every member of staff who we encountered was helpful, friendly and treated us so well. We have stayed in 5 star hotels previously and rarely receive this personal level of service. My wife is Coeliac and strictly gluten free however nothing was too much bother to ensure her food experience both at dinner and breakfast was safe and enjoyable.
