“Comfortable, homely, and friendly”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

This is a very good choice out of the more expensive city center. Eating options are few but it's a pleasant walk (down, not so much up) through a park and around the cathedral to restaurants and pubs. The B&B is very comfortable, modern, clean, and functional. My room was small but ingeniously designed so there was space for a large and comfortable bed, a modern bathroom/shower, space for luggage, even a desk. Wifi was very good, always on and fast. Breakfast was tasty and abundant, with good coffee. The owner is very friendly and welcoming, and a mine of information on the city and the area. Only two minor drawbacks. One, which the owner can do nothing about, is some traffic noise during the day (the night was peaceful). The other is the relatively high volume of the owner's music. This is a small building, and a lower volume would add to the guests' enjoyment. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay very much. Recommended!

Room Tip: The back of the building would have less traffic noise.

Very warm welcome and genuine interest in their guests, its a credit to Thomas and his team. The rooms are compact with bathrooms quite compact.

A very pleasant stay, very good breakfast with extremely good service.

An easy walk, albeit its up and down the big hill, to restaurants and the city main.

I have never met a B and B owner more helpful, and interesting as Thomas. We felt very at home and were so grateful for all Thomas' advise. He kne the back roads and special out of the way places that made everyday a wonderful adventure. He shared the history of Derry in such a way that we had a much deeper appreciation for his beloved city. He and Joe customized each of our full irish fry breakfast's and served it with great humor. the beds and linens were sweet smelling and soft. One of our best nights sleep. I really can't say enough about how lovely our experience was at the Rose Park B and B.

This was the accomodation in our first stage in Northern Ireland. We came from Donegal and the passage from Éire to Ulster was evident, the people were less friendly and for us (we are two Italian guys) was just a bit bleak. Then we went to this B&B and it was immediatly home! The owner was a so cordial and so kind person, we forgot our sadness :) we weren't looked smugly anymore! We were received in a courteous way from the host and his old dog, Ben the Boss. My memories of this place are them and the breakfast. It seemed the Chistmas lunch :D : rich and good, consumed in a rainy day in company with our host, we were the only guestes. He gave us many information and help, also for the car the night before. The room was not very big but the bed was very comfortable and the room quite and these are the most important things for us. A wonderful accomodation. If you want you can caress the dog, is old and sweet. I want to thank you the host for his contribution to make wonderful our holiday in Ireland but I don't remenber his name, thank you Signor Unknown, We stayed only for one night but I and my boyfriend have a very good memory of you! I hope to see you again and to speak english better, I want to write my review in english on purpose to thank you :)

The only word we would use to describe this establishment is fantastic. The warmth, Irish sense of humour and genuine hospitality conveyed by Thomas and his family will contribute to your memories of Northern Ireland. The highlight of our stay was the many hours of conversation with Thomas regarding the history of this previously troubled city and his passion to ensure that peace is maintained.

Our room was spacious, with a large en-suite, extremely clean & tastefully decorated. The home cooked Ulster breakfast was delicious and plentiful. You may even be fortunate to meet 'grandad Joe' another great source on local history or share a pint of Guinness at the local watering hole. With Thomas' encouragement relating to my ancestral research I did discover distant family members during our stay and was cheerfully told, welcome home! This B & B is a legenderry experience!!!

Hi to yee both from the homeland.
It was a pleasure to help in some small way with the unraveling of the ancestral trail. Sincerely intriguing to be part of your journey as you shared your discoveries of living local family connections. We had another success with a couple from New Zealand last week again through the local phone book.
These are the encouraging moments in this business which make it a very unique way of life. "Arrive as Strangers leave as Friends" You certainly have left fond memories here. It was a memorable night in the local pub. So until the next time. Grandpa Joe sends his regards.
Thomas.
