Overview

There is something very simple about seventies architecture. The Everglades Hotel outside the City of Derry captures the typical cool lines of seventies building design. As contemporary today as the day the first brick was laid. Of course, an interior refurbishment in current years by the Hastings group, has put this hotel in the high end bracket for comfort and style for today’s discerning guests.

The name of this hotel was taken from the Everglades in Florida and from the inspiration of Alistair Cook’s ‘Letters from America’. The hotel is surrounded by lovely trees and greenery in the private garden.  Built in 1976, Everglades has been part of the Hastings group for over two decades. Its location a few minutes’ drive outside Derry is handy for seeing the sights and browsing the shops. City of Derry Airport is only nine miles away, with Belfast just over seventy miles away.

In all Hastings hotels, luxury accommodation and top class service are part of the package.  Reception staff are friendly and welcoming, led by General Manager Stephen Redden who is a stickler for professional efficiency. Sixty four rooms range from standard accommodation to luxury suites. These include two very romantic Bridal Suites.  All are comfortably furnished in Hastings classic comfortable style.

A Buffet Breakfast is served in The Grill Restaurant each morning. Try the Irish Porridge with Bushmill’s Whiskey, Honey and Cream, or County Down handmade Granola or Muesli, Clandeboye Estate natural yogurt with fresh fruits, and a selection of smoked fish, cheese and cold meats. Browse further and find the real Irish breakfast in all its glory! Lunch and dinner is served in The Grill restaurant.  All dining facilities are open to non-residents as well as hotel guests.  

Banqueting rooms can accommodate up to 320 guests in various spaces and room sizes. A big ballroom for a grand wedding or celebration, and smaller rooms for more intimate gatherings are available. Business facilities are also on hand. This hotel has something for everyone, at a budget to suit all. A great find for the Good Food Ireland team, in an area steeped in history, culture and great local food.

    Tom Durcan, craft butcher of over twenty five years experience, is a master of spiced beef. It has won him many honours. This fine Cork speciality is the underlining product at his butcher’s stall in the English market. Tom’s career began as a youngster, when he took a summer job in a butcher’s shop during school holidays. The experience proved invaluable. Working with an experienced butcher with his own slaughter house provided what Tom describes as a ‘fantastic education’ for the young novice in how to source animals, and the ground rules for good butchery.
