“Home from home”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

In this B&B you are made to feel at home as soon as you arrive. Teresa and Donal were so accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were nice and cosy and both Teresa and Donal joined us with a drink in the evening after which we felt we had known them all our lives. I would recommend this B@B to anyone visiting Londonderry.

Stayed for 2 nights at the Laburnum Lodge on a recent holiday in Northern Ireland. It's a great B&B and Teresa and Donal are super hosts and just can'y do enough for you.Breakfasts are overwhelming! Derry is a super place to visit and we'll definitely stay here again if we come back to Derry.

We only stayed here one night, but it was a great stay. The rooms are comfortable, and the location is really convenient. Teresa and Donal are great hosts, giving us a recommendation for a walking tour that turned out to be excellent. Donal is one of life's great talkers!

We met Donal upon arrival he was very hospitable and welcoming.
Teresa gave us some tips for dinner, and we had a nice chat with Donal in the evening, showed us several books on Derry and gave us explanations.
The bedrooms were perfect size for what we needed. We had a full Irish breakfast in the morning.
Nice b&b with very nice hosts.

This is a beautiful B&B. We stayed here two week-day nights in September. The rooms are immaculate and thoughtfully furnished and the food is exceptional. However, the very best part of this B&B is the owners, Donal and Teresa. They absolutely could not do enough for us. They provided advice on what to see, where to go, and how to do it. Teresa called a taxi, and told the driver exactly where to take us in Derry. They recommended excellent restaurants and repeated directions as many times as we needed. Although they obviously have very busy lives, they never hesitated to stop and help us with our questions. Our last day, they went above and beyond what anyone could have expected. My husband is an insulin dependent diabetic,and he discovered that he was missing one of his bottles of insulin. Donal took him to a doctor for a script and to a chemist to get the insulin. What could have been a disaster, turned into just a delay in our departure. We cannot thank Donal and Teresa for all they did for us. If you want to enjoy your stay Derry, this is the place to do it.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room. Because we were travelling with a friend, we used two rooms...

Stayed for one night as at event in Venue. Everywhere so clean and bright. Cooked breakfast best ever. Host's Teresa and Donal lovely, lovely people. Breakfast served at one table although I personally prefer individual tables. However Teresa and Donal helped the coversation to run smoothly. Would definetly use again.

This is a B&B to beat all B&Bs! We and other family members have stayed there on a number of occasions and the high standard and outstanding welcome remain the same.
The house is comfortable, homely and immaculately clean. Breakfast is great, served to your specification!

Teresa and Donal make you feel very special. Why would you go anywhere else?
