“Overnight Stay For The New Years Eve Ball”
Reviewed 3 January 2014

As I live in Derry I am a regular at the City Hotel but have never stayed overnight before.I must say it was a very pleasant experience.The staff are excellent,not forgetting everybody working behind the scenes,preparing food etc.The drinks reception and six course meal for New Years Eve was faultless,good food.Breakfast was average but that was okay.the rooms were spotless but the pillows were too hard for me! I will definitely recommend the hotel to anyone staying in derry.

Room Tip: choose a room with a view of the peace bridge

I'm just home from my stay in the city hotel and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. From I arrived until I left i could not fault the hotel or it's staff. The breakfast was excellent and even though bout 200 people went to the buffet room at the same time the staff handled it well.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the foyle are the best.

I've stayed at a couple of other hotels in Derry but I won't be staying anywhere else! Friendly, helpful staff, great location and well worth the little bit extra for a fantastic view! The room I had was both modern and tastefully decorated.

We went to the hotel on 23rd December, to have a meal in the restaurant.......£35 for two people, two courses with a bottle of wine....great value, and very good food, would recommend this to anyone.
I stayed in Derry over Christmas, and would have stayed at the hotel, but it is not open over Christmas.
I have stayed here twice before and would stay again.....great hotel...great location....lovely friendly helpful staff.
We are getting married here next year and asked if we could have a look at the penthouse suites.....nothing was to much trouble...sorry can't remember the young mans name who showed us around, but thankyou very much.....the rooms are really lovely, will be hard to make a choice on which suite to have. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Regards to all at the hotel....Paul&Theresa....and family

We loved staying in the City Hotel Derry. I was there on business with an author who was doing a charity speaking event. The staff made us so welcome and arranged for an excellent dinner to be delivered to our room before the main kitchen closed for the evening. We had a large and very comfortable room with free wifi and free parking.
It was the warmth of the staff that made such a difference. I will be back, this time with my partner to enjoy a weekend in this lovely hotel that is brilliantly located for exploring this gorgeous old city.

From the conceriege taking our bags from the car on arrival, to every member of staff we met, to the evening meal, the room and the leisure facilites - First Class!! Great location meant we could park up for the two days and walk everywhere. Visited as a couple, but would would go back with the kids.

Room Tip: We had paid extra for the superior double, lovely view over the peace bridge and river.

Reviewed 30 December 2013

I booked to stay on the 7th floor in one of the new suites for my fiancé's birthday.The hotel looked great and the staff were extremely friendly however we never got a space in the carpark even at check out time. We had went down to enjoy a night out at a nearby bar and had bought some alcohol to drink in the room beforehand only to be told that we were not allowed any alcohol in the rooms unless it was purchased from the hotel as we could be fined or it would be confiscated. This was ridiculous as we stay in Derry every 2 months and have never been told this. The room was very high quality but was definitely not worth the money that I paid. We likely would not return as the Tower Hotel is just around the corner with suites double the size for half the price at are very high quality.

Room Tip: Do not pay for the suites.. definitely not worth the money.. and on check out they were allowing all...
