“Fabulous Time!”
Reviewed 17 February 2011

We booked the City Hotel for two nights for a valentine treat and were a bit apprehensive as we had not stayed in L/Derry before. No need to worry, we had a fantastic time, couldnt have asked for a better hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, customer service was excellent, in both the bar and restaurant. Rooms excellent, views looking over the River Foyle. The hotel is very central, shops, bars, restaurants just a few metres away including the Exchange Restaurant, just across the road, where we had a beautiful meal. We ate in the hotel the second night and i cannot fault the food or service and it was very reasonably priced. All in all we had a fabulous time staying here, such a great buzz about the hotel. Would hightly recommend anyone to stay here! We will be back! :)

Stayed at the City Hotel recently, check in staff were pleasant and arranged dinner in a local restaurant just accross the street which was excellent. Had dinner in hotel the first night which was very good fancied a change of food second night. Room was bright and clean, staff arranged a fantastic taxi tour with a local guide called Brian who worked for a local company and for less than $40 we had a great tour. Everything arranged onsite at the hotel and no need to tip in Ireland.

My wife and i arrived on 11 Feb 2011 for a weekend break. From we arrived until we left, the staff were the most courteous and professional i have ever experienced in any hotel. The food in the restuarant was excellent and was great value. The entertainment in the bar was enjoyed by all and our room was immaculate. The hotel is in an excellent location and i would thoroughly recommend it and Derry to everyone.

I chose this hotel for a family get together & celebration. The hotel was asked to lay on a drinks reception in their Presidential Suite. They were also asked to provide dinner for 11 persons in their main restaurant , and overnight accommodation.

Everything went perfectly. Timing, attention to detail, quality of food, and customer service exceeded all my expectations. The rooms were clean and fresh, and despite its great central location, the rooms were very quiet. I recommend room 618 for its truly outstanding views.

The hotel has a pool and gym. We did not use them, but the pool looked good and not too busy. All of my party were truly impressed by what was a very memorable event, and to which City Hotel contributed significantly.

Just returned from a 2 night break in the City Hotel. £85pp sharing with 2 breakfasts and 2 evening meals. Great deal! The food was excellent and the staff could not do enough for you. Great location for shopping and sight-seeing. Entertainment in the evening. Cannot wait to return!
