Elagh View bed & Breakfast
Ranked #19 of 44 Derry B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Our stay was brief but we enjoyed the warmth of the proprietors welcome and general helpfulness with information and suggestions. Our room was very comfortable and compact though there was enough room for us and our considerable luggage. Our sat nav found the location though it is not that easy. The only down for us was that Sunday breakfast was not til 8.30 - very late for us as we like to get away early before the traffic. However for those after a relaxing weekend it would be perfect.

Want to thank Mary for her warm welcome, even those we got lost, she stayed on phone until we got there. the room was beautiful, clean & cosy.
coming in from a wedding, mary offered us tea/coffee n water, she was so friendly and full of chat. The breakfast was far more than we could eat, but it was that nice we ate everything. We will certainly be staying again.

I had booked a single room with separate bathroom but as Mary had a ensuite double room free she let me have this for the same price. The room was beautifully decorated and the bed was very comfy. The shower ensuite was so clean and pleasant. Lovely big fluffy towels. Free WI Fi available. Coffee and every kind of tea under the sun was available in the dining room. I was due for a very stressful day after my stay and Mary made me a herbal calming tea before bed. I had a lovely breakfast the next day. Could not fault this place at all and if I ever need to overnight in Derry again I know where to go.

My friend and I just got back from Ireland and we spent one night in Derry. We chose Elagh View which is located near Londonderry. The room was pretty and cosy. We had a little trouble finding the house by night but Mary helped us on the phone and her husband Jimmy finally came to pick us up by car so that we could follow him back to the house which was so great thanks a million!! You feel at home at Elagh View, Mary was very thoughtful and the Irish breakfast was amazing ! I will recommend it to my family and friends!

just had to return to Elagh View and Mary and Jimmy were as welcome as before. The view was well worth the return and the breakfast was excellent with a great variety . The rooms are spotless and decor is lovely.The facilities are great and a cuppa is always available.Thier daughter Alicia owns Urban Oasis well worth a visit. I had the pleasure of getting beauty treatments and would recommend them.It is just across from Ealgh View.If it is a relaxing break you are after i would highly recommend Elagh View.

Elagh View is a beautiful B&B in an excellent location - very peaceful yet convenient to the city centre. Mary and Jimmy are lovely people who make you feel at home and breakfast is very tasty! Would highly recommend and would definitely go back here.
