Booked at short notice due to a funeral. We were very late getting there but the manager Seamus was there within 5 minutes of ringing him. He made us feel at home straight away. Beautiful reception area with photos and memorabilia of famous people who'd stayed there. As it was late we wanted to get a few pints and food. Seamus gave us some perfect recommendations. Lovely feed in the morning. Seamus, if you're reading, thanks very much and I'll be back up next year and we'll stay there again. Joe.

On arrival the host was pleasant. However, we booked a family room for one night and on that day we were told we had to move upstairs to two separate rooms as the family rooms shower did not work. The rooms were clean enough but in the morning the showers and taps in both rooms did not have hot water and when we rang the host he was very ignorant, rude and not helpful whatsoever as he went on to say “it’s the weekend and there should be people there to deal with it”. It ended up all of us having to get cold showers. To add, one room did not have a TV or kettle and the milk was out of date causing one of us to be sick. The other room had live wires showing on the ceiling. Although we had to say the breakfast was satisfactory. The overall experience was not good and we would not stay again.

My wife, Maureen and I stayed here 3rd August to 8th August. The Abbey came recommended. Fantastic place, like living in your own home. Seamus is a great host. Ably assisted by his better half, Helen. She and Ellie looked after us all week, feeding and watering us all week. The breakfast cooked fresh and set you up for the day. Five minutes from city centre. Absolutely spotless. If you are going to Derry there is no better place, especially if you want to experience the history of the Bogside. We’ll be back. Thanks Seamus, Helen and Ellie and say hello to Emma 🍀 Helen, have a great birthday on the 18th August 💚

Where do I start? First of all, we were met by the owner to be shown our accommodations. Here's a hint, he's not always on premise, so phone ahead. While we were waiting, I popped across the street to the Derry City Credit Union to exchange some money. The timing worked out perfectly! Secondly, the room was great! Clean sheets in a comfortable bed, with a hot shower available. Aces! Thirdly was breakfast. A fine woman named Eli (pronounced Ellie) saw to your morning needs. Coffee, tea, juice, water, and a full Irish breakfast. We were more than set for the day. Of course, if you're just in for eggs and toast, Eli will accommodate. Fourth, location. It's a negligible walk to the Bloody Sunday museum. It's a 3 to 5 minute walk to City Center and the Walls, IF you don't get sucked into one of the local pubs first! The people are so friendly in Derry. Really, the list can go on and on, but nothing that is under the control of the proprietor (i.e. close to some great restaurants for a proper dinner, some "chippies" for a quick bite, or takeaways for a late night snack). There's coffee and tea available at all times, some biscuits (cookies), and water. On street parking is first come basics, but the owner can't control that. There's also a car park in close locality. It's been 9 years since we last stayed here. The updates are amazing. The newly (I'm not sure how new, it's been 9 years) furnished tea room is top notch. I wish we were around for some sessions. I won't book anywhere else in Derry. My future travels will Center around availability here.
