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

Would definitely recommend staying here. Peter and Joan are very friendly and helpful, recommending restaurants and attractions nearby and giving us a map to help. The house is very central but away from the noise of the city centre. Although the room and ensuite were small they were perfectly adequate.We also found Derry a very interesting and friendly city.

On a short roundtrip through Northern Ireland my mom and I stayed at the Saddlers House. We enjoyed our time there a lot. Joan and Peter were soft-hearted, really friendly and helpful. Joan's homemade soda bread and the marmelades were extremly delicious! But also all the rest of the breakfast was perfect. The location was very central but still quiet... More

Joan and Peter gave us a great welcome and offered any help we wanted. The Saddler's House is in an excellent position - just a short walk from the city wall and the centre of town. The river - The Foyle - and the Bogside murals are also within ten minutes walk. The Saddler's House is a characterful old town... More
