Arkle House B and B
Ranked #9 of 46 Derry B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 November 2013

My wife and I just returned from 2 nights stay at Arkle House B&B in Derry, and we had a wonderful time. We had no complaints, and were quite happy with the accomodations. The B&B is in a lovely old home - which is our favorite kind of B&B. From the very first, we were made to feel at home by the very helpful, friendly landlady. The B&B is tucked away in a quiet residential area, so things were always peaceful. It is only a short drive into the center of town; if you take a taxi, it's about a 3.50 (sterling) fare. The gardens are beautiful. Derry's a great town, the people seem to be working hard to get past the unfortunate history of the Troubles. Everyone we had any dealings with in town - from cabbies to wait staff at restaurants - were uniformly friendly and helpful. We will definitely be going back to Derry, and when we do, we'll be staying again at Arkle House.

The room was quite small - the smallest of all the B&B's we stayed at on this trip. The bathroom was like a closet - I could barely fit in and I'm not that big a person. Also there wasn't alot of closets and drawers to put our stuff in. You get what you pay for I suppose as this was also the cheapest B&B we stayed at.
However, the service was impeccable. Extremely friendly host who came all the way downtown to meet us so we could follow him to the place. We never would have found it on our own. Also, when we went downtown he gave us a ride since he was going downthere anyway and saved us the cost of a cab. (Cabs weren't too expensive anyway.) The breakfast was also good, the first place where we got to try some Irish black pudding.

This was a very nice place for our recent stay in Derry. The house was warm, comfortable, and inviting. Our host was friendly and very helpful, especially with one particular need that we had. There was a nice restaurant and market close (walking distance), and we used both. The guest kitchen was very much appreciated. Our room was quite small, as was the bath, but given the little time we spent in the room, it was not an issue. Breakfast was very good, and promptly served. Car parking was much appreciated. Cab fare to the City center was very reasonable, so we left our car parked while we explored the area. Overall, a good value in my opinion.

Nice and clean B&B with big rooms. The rooms are nicely decorated and the whole house fells very comfortable. It's close to the City but very quiet with a big garden. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Try the irish breakfast there, it can't get much better ;)

just back from a 3 night stay at Arkle House and I can thoroughly recommend. With a large party of 8 which included a baby we were worried about facilities but we need not have worried, the rooms were spacious and comfortable. The little kitchen for guest use was an added extra which came in very handy when feeding the baby. Sally and her husband are lovely hosts and we felt very at home, nothing was too much trouble (a sneaky glass of wine while waiting on a taxi was much appreciated). House and grounds are beautiful, breakfast is top notch and we will hopefully return in the future.

After a very full day on the Antrim Coast, we arrived at Arkle House B&B around 6 PM as we had emailed we would. Were shown our room and the hostess pointed out places to eat in the area (less than a five minute walk away). There was also a Liquor store, grocery store and clothing store nearby. This B&B is a ways from the walls but that is why we picked it (easier to navigate when I was getting used to driving on the left.)

Overall this B&B was tidy and the grounds were large. The hostess seemed to be a little shy but warmed up we chatted with her. Breakfast was cooked to order and fabulous.

The bathroom in our room was tiny tiny as was the shower. But it all worked.

We stayed here for two nights/2 people per night for 100GBP Total. Excellent deal

We had a much shorter stay at Arkle House than we had anticipated, due to a late departure from Belfast and subsequent late arrival in Derry. Thankfully, Terry and Sally were extremely accomodating and waited up until past midnight for our family of four to arrive. The family room with a double bed and two singles was perfect for us and the room was very spacious!

Sally's Irish Breakfast was fantastic and much appreciated!

The house was very close to Derry city centre and we were able to reach our destination inside the city walls the next morning in less than 15 minutes by car.

Room Tip: Best to have good directions to find Arkle House, particularly if you're arriving at night becau...
