Having found this beautiful B&B in Tripadvisor I decided to give Darby's a try based on the excellent reviews. I was looking for a comfortable stay in Stavanger at a reasonable price, Darby's fitted the bill being more economical than the hotels which are (uprightly) more visible on Tripadvisor over the B&B; I also personally prefer smaller B&B/guest houses to hotels any day but at Darby's no quality is sacrificed and the service I found was perfect.
Situated in a very nice and quiet residential area less than 5 minutes walk from an airport shuttle bus stop (or central Stavanger) it is well positioned for a business or tourist visit. I actually found it great because 2 minutes away towards town is a Europcar depot so I was able to save costs by picking up my car early the next day (when I needed it) rather than from the airport on arrival.
The house stands out on the street and it attractive, inside its very welcoming and comfortable, the reception rooms are beautiful and nicely furnished. The hosts are great and welcomed me and were able to give good information on local restaurants etc.
The house has free Wi-Fi and my room was well equipped with a desk for working, a modern clean bathroom and most importantly a very comfortable bed! In the hall there is a small kitchen for making coffee etc. Breakfast was hearty and had plenty of choice of hot or cold food.
I highly recommend Darby’s Inn. Go try it out, I certainly will be again.
