Transfer from the airport is about 20 minutes depending on traffic. The hotel is centrally located beside the River Foyle with the bus station 5 minutes walk away. It is very close to various shops, bars & restaurants. Parking is available under the hotel and is accessed via a secure entrance.
The reception area leads to the Coppins Bar & Lounge area which also serves food, Thompsons Restaurant and 2 lifts to the rooms. The lifts can get a bit busy at "peak" times.
Efficient check in process and very friendly staff, I arrived a little early (before 2pm) and was expecting to have to wait for my room but surprised to be given access. Check out is12 noon.
Room 509 was a corner room directly opposite the lift with a great view of the River Foyle, Guildhall & city. Although close to the lift it was not noisy. Room facilities included: tea / coffee tray, hairdryer, satellite TV, iron & board and complimentary toiletries. There was no air conditioning but a large fan was available.
Breakfast is served from 6.30 – 10am (M-F) in the Thompsons Restaurant, there was a good selection of hot / cold food with great service from the staff.
Overall, this hotel is in an ideal location for a visit to Londonderry. All the staff were very friendly & welcoming, making my stay most enjoyable.
