“Just Lunch”
Reviewed 31 August 2014

Stopped for lunch en route elsewhere.

Scones, dessert, and coffee all very good. The service was attentive, unobtrusive, and superb.

We didn't stay at the hoetl but got a very good feel. Well located on highway.

Toilets very clean.

Stayed in White Horse hotel for the Walled City Tattoo as they had a deal on for 2 nights b&b and evening meal plus tickets too the Tattoo as well as taxi to and from event. Staff so helpful as usual and couldn't do enough for us. Really made the stay extra special. Food in bar and restaurant was excellent. Lovely room and really big bed. All in all great weekend and enjoyed the hotel. Think it the best way to do Walled City Tattoo!!!!

I spent almost a month at the white horse hotel. Never seen such a friendly, helpful, and welcoming staff like this hotel before!!! As i come from a very crowded city in the middle east, i was very pleasant to stay in a calm hotel that is only few minutes away from the city derry. During my stay, i just fell in love with the hotel's food especially their chicken dishes and the soups of the day! the leisure centre was as relaxing as the room i stayed in..SUPERB!!! Keep up the good work

We recently held a business event in this hotel and every aspect was outstanding from helping organise all aspects of the function . We needed to incorporate some team building and nothing was a problem. The food and service was unbeatable . Thanks again we will be back.

We have stayed in the Whitehorse hotel on numerous occasions , we took my mum and dad to celebrate her 80th . Great hotel and great food .. Breakfast is highly recommended and the breakfast staff .. Takes us 2 1/2 hours to get there but it's worth the travel .

Stayed at the White Horse Hotel for 1 night as we were visiting Stroke City the day. Hotel is a little out of town for those who like to be near the buzz of the city at night - but it suited us. I did notice a bus stop across the road from the hotel so it may have a service to and from the city. The closed car showroom just outside the hotel does not help first impressions but don't let that put you off. The rooms were very serviceable - not huge but enough to be comfortable. We ate in the pub and the food was very good. The pub itself is very quiet and this is pretty much what the hotel is like - quiet and "local". Breakfast was fresh.

The hotel is not centrally located , approx 5 miles from the city but has comfortable rooms. it looked not so well organised as we were a group that arrived at 4pm and all rooms were not still ready for check in. Then the hotel has no lift so if you have heavy luggage, request a room in the basement. The food was OK but nothing special except the homemade lemonade. Staff at the reception helpful as well as in the dining room but needed to be little more quick to serve us. Not bad in general but next time would rather prefer another hotel, at least more centrally located.
