My family and I have just returned from a a two day break in Derry. This was my first visit to the City and I was really impressed with every aspect (apart from the weather, but whats new for Northern Ireland!!)
We opted to stay at the Everglades as we have previously stayed in other Hastings Hotels properties and have always thoroughly enjoyed it. We were not to be dissapointed with our choice. The hotel, as previous reviewers have said, has been extensively refurbed, and in particular the lobby and lounge are very welcoming. Our room, although on the small side was beautifully appointed with all the modern amenities you would expect.
However with this all said the staff were by far its greatest asset. Everyone we encountered were friendly, welcoming and really went out of our way to be helpful. In particular, Brian the concierge was very helpful in organising taxis and giving us directions and info on places to visit.
I would definately recommend this hotel and also the Tower Museum which was excellent.
