A truly beautiful old building - Jacobean. The owners have very much kept teh character of the place. Peter and Joan are terrific folk, and like all the people we met in Northern ireland, very friendly and accomodating. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was superb with a collection of home made options from fruit salad, an excellent apple compot,... More

Terrific location in Derry, within walking distance of everything. Parking on a side street wasn't a problem later in the day. But there is also a parking garage downtown. We took the large family room dowstairs which was a bit more, but was lovely and quite roomy. The full complimentary irish breakfast was a nice bonus. Downsides are minimal but... More

Only stayed for 1 night but I would have no hesitation booking again if visiting the city. Situated not far from the guild Hall and easy to find. Joan greeted my son and myself and got us settled into our twin room, which was very comfortable. The ensuite was small but more than met our needs, it was great to... More

Saddler's House is a great place to stay. It is very convenient to all attractions in Derry. It is a very short walk to the walled city. The breakfast is huge and very delicious. You can't go wrong here.

Saddler's House is a home away from home. My bedroom was cozy, the bed perfect and Joan and Peter had even thought to provide a bathrobe since the bathroom was just outside the room. The shower was energy-efficient, powerful and eminently adjustable. Very important--the Wi-Fi is speedy and works well and there is a computer you can use in the... More

On a cycling trip I decided to stops Londonderry overnight, and I was referred to the Saddlers House from another fully booked establishment. When I arrived I was warmly greeted and ushered inside, thankfully they had a small room available for the night. I was greatly relieved as Londonderry was particularly busy this week. Although the room was small it... More

This B&B is very convenient to downtown, parking on street can be tricky. Double-occupancy room was nice size but...bathroom very tiny! Breakfast not up to par with other B&B's. Peter and 'kitchen elves' very personable and helpful.

We had a large booking and I was last minute so did end up in a very small room, however the (very used) dressing gown on the back of the door was slightly strange! The bed was comfortable if a little musty smelling, but this is a B&B and wasn't expensive (£40 per night). The shower was just outside the... More

When one looks at review scores, one must also qualify the writer. If someone is used to staying at Motel 6 or hostels, their awarding a 4 or 5 star rating means a whole lot different than someone else who is used to staying at a mid-level or full service hotel and awarding the same 4 or 5 stars. I... More

Yes, the rooms and bathrooms are small, but they are clean and cozy. I really enjoyed our 2-night stay here. Peter and Joan are sweet and gave some great recommendations. Easy walk to the murals, Peadar O'Donnel's, the Foyle. We also had the pleasure to dine one morning at their other location, the Merchant's House, just 2 blocks away. Met... More
