“Better than a home from home!”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

First rate in every respect - delightfully welcoming hosts, a tastefully decorated and furnished home, warm and comfortable rooms, fluffy towels, wonderful attention to detail such as daffodils in the bedroom, and a breakfast that was second to none, including a vast range of items and the best fresh fruit salad I've ever eaten! Very highly recommended. I will definitely be back!

I stayed in this B&B last night. If carlsberg did b&bs..... Karen is a really nice, welcoming lady who has an amazing house. The room was incredible, the bathroom was amazing, the food was excellent and I can't fault it in any way. Sometimes b&b owners can be overbearing or the standards aren't great, number 8 is the polar opposite. I've stayed in 5 star hotels that weren't as classy as this. And, though it was a fleeting visit, Derry is great. It's rare you come across it but this really is 10/10. SM, Cork

I had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful bed and breakfast last Tuesday night . The owner is just charming and the very welcoming! From the moment i arrived I was treated to some tea and cake after a long day! After being shown to my spacious room I was given the tour - my bathroom was right next to the room and again this room was beautiful. After a great nights sleep, I was awakened to the sweet smell of the Ulster Fry. It was cooked to perfection! I cannot fault this bed and breakfast in any and deserves as many positive reviews as possible!! The owners are lovely, the house is amazing, the food is tasty and most importantly the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming. I will be back :)

This is just the most amazing home ever and what wonderful hosts. Karen is not in this for the money but just sharing it with others. It is sumptuous and large. Everything is catered for and we have never quite seen the like of it. So if you are ever in Derry - forget hotels, guesthouses etc and stay with this remarkable couple - you won't be disappointed!

This must be the most welcoming Guest house in Europe, or far beyond. The hosts' prioritization of the person, and their meeting all needs, e.g. transport, catering, value accommodation, comfort, kind, personal care and concern, attention to every detail, space and freedom. Their overall hospitality was outstanding. I can confirm the details already outlined in previous reviews.

I wish to nominate Karen and Bob, and No.8 Deanfield, for an award for excellence in all aspects of genuine caring, and all aspects of very fine accommodation.

Room Tip: Every room in this house meets the highest standards.

A wonderful guesthouse. Every conceiveable need was catered for. My clothes were ironed, coffee and scones provided while we watched the 6 Nations rugby, the bed was heated, and the breakfast was excellent.

Stayed at number 8 guest house with my young daughter just before Christmas. Had a fantastic stay in very comfortable and beautifully decorated accommodation. Karen was a helpful host and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our walk through the park and the peace bridge brought us to the centre of Derry City in a few minutes. Can't wait to visit again next month.
