“A lovely weekend experience”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We stayed at Darby's Inn on a spur of the moment trip to Stavanger. The house is located in central Stavanger, a 5 minute walk away from the harbour. The rooms and amenities are beautiful and Wenche and Paul are wonderful hosts. The B&B offered a lovely alternative to staying in an overpriced, generic hotel in Stavanger! I would highly recommend Darby's Inn for any length of stay. It was the perfect place for exploring all that Stavanger has to offer!

Room Tip: Svedrup Room has two single beds and access to a lovely little balcony.

Darby's Inn is warm and luxurious with excellent hospitality from Wenche and Paul. The room was a warm and comfortable en suite with a small kitchenette next door. It is very close to the centre of town and in a quiet quaint part of the Stavanger Central area. My stay was a real treat in a historical and lovely building, I cannot recommend it enough.

This was my first visit to Stavanger and a friend recommended the Darby’s Inn.
We arrived late Sunday evening for 3 nights and received a very warm welcome from the owners Wenche and Paul. My room was excellent and spotlessly clean, breakfast was even better and the whole experience is one I hope to repeat.

Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.

I've had the privilege to be staying at Darby's B&B for a week every month for the last 2 years while working in Stavanger. From the first stay I felt the warm hospitality and friendliness that characterize the owners Paul and Wenche, who have become my dear friends now. Truth to tell, the accommodation is perfect,clean and tidy. The house is tastefully decorated with Asian and European influences. One immediately feels comfortable here and I sincerely recommend Darby's to anyone who wants to feel at home while staying in Stavanger.

This is our third time to visit Darby's Inn, and it is our preferred choice when we are in Stavanger. The hospitality that meets you, combined with cosy atmosphere in the house comes second to none. You can have your breakfast in friendly and nice settings, with a good choice of healthy food. The location of the Inn is icing on the cake.

The excellent reviews for Darby's Inn are well deserved. Based on it's high rating on TripAdvisor, we booked Darby's for a long weekend in Stavanger. Still, we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the place. It was a privilege to stay at such a monumental house and have breakfast surrounded by a tasteful collection of asian and european art. Above all, the warm hospitality of the owners, Wenche and Paul, really made a difference! I can highly recommend Darby's Inn to even the most demanding traveler. It offers an excellent alternative to the hotels in town. And next time I go to Stavanger, I'll make sure to visit Darby's again!

I was warmly greeted by the owners and felt comfortable straight away. The room and the rest of the property are beautifully decorated with a sure taste.
Breakfast was personal and delicious. I highly recommend this place. It's very close to the city center (walking distance) and the experience so mucb more enjoyable than a hotel, in my honest opinion.
