We came by train and it was a pleasant 20 minute walk from the station. The hotel is on the other bank of the Foyle river from the walled city of Derry/Londonderry. We took a taxi back one evening and it cost £3.75. One morning we took the local bus into the city, which passes the side gate of Everglades, going every hour in the morning, but infrequently later in the day.
We stayed for two nights which included a dinner and a walking tour of the city, a special deal.
The breakfast buffet was very good, with fruit salad and compote, cereals, a variety of breads, cheeses, etc., several juices including Armagh apple, and there were ban-maries of hots including black and white pudding, mushrooms, tomatoes, eggs, bacon, sausage. Beverages were brought to the table.
Staff throughout were very friendly. It was quite quiet when we stayed. We had dinner in the restaurant which was very good, a more detailed menu was available, but as we had it included we had their set menu of three courses, with several choices. We had a drink in the bar beforehand and there was just one other person there, but only one kind of sherry, a sweet one!
Beds were very comfortable and our room had a double and a single bed. The place was very clean.
