I stayed in this hotel for a long weekend visit to Derry/Londonderry.
It is easy to find, being right on the main A5 road into the city from the south. Parking is more than ample and the welcome at reception was warm. Getting into the city from here is no real problem - only 10 minutes or so by car or taxi.
My room was large and comfortable. The heating was adequate - just as well on this rather cool, breezy weekend - and the bathroom well appointed. The cleaner, however, had a rather patchy attitude towards restocking the in-room tea and coffee making facilities, piles of coffee sachets and a complete lack of teabags being the result!
The easy-to-find location means that there is rather a lot of traffic noise even if, as in my case, your room is not on the side of the hotel next to the road.
The restaurant and bar are nice, with a good selection. The menu in the former is, however, rather expensive. The staff are variable. On my visit, some of the younger servers in particular were inattentive to the point of surliness.
Not bad on the whole, however - you could certainly do a lot worse.
