We spent a night at the Merchant House that was highly enjoyable. We arrived a bit early, but called Peter the owner, who came right over to greet us. He showed us our room, as well as the breakfast area and sitting room, both which were beautifully decorated and comfortable. The en suite bathroom, though tiny, more than met our... More

Beautiful old home in the center of Derry with delightful furnishings and great breakfast. Can't beat the central location although parking in downtown is a bit of a challenge. We would definitely stay here again! Thanks for a very pleasant stay.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights at short notice after pre-booked accom turned out unacceptable. Joan and Peter made us feel very much at home, and the house is packed full of character. Lovely breakfast with everything home-made, even the yogurt and marmalade. Would recommend and happy to stay again in the future.

A beautiful period house in the lovely city of Derry. Lovely welcome from Peter and Joan both of who were very helpful and couldn't do enough for their guests. Lovely room at the front of the house. Breakfasts were wonderful, a time when all guest get to sit together and chat which was lovely and not something you get often.... More

We stayed only one night but enjoyed our stay. Our room was small but charming in a shabby chic sort of way. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was too small, but I find that to be true in so many B and B's where bedrooms have had bathrooms added to make them en suite. This is an old property,... More

We stayed here for one night and I am surprised by some of the recent comments. It is a B & B folks not a 5 star hotel. Our room was on the ground floor but we had the use of the first floor sitting room which was fabulous - reminded me of the family's living room at Alnwick Castle!... More

This building was charming, with beautiful old floors and a large sitting room that was comfortable. Everything in our room looked worn, the bedcovers were very thin and not really clean looking. The garden view out the window was refreshing. The breakfast was a block and a half away from the Merchant house and it had a tiny dining area... More

Enyp, Owner at Merchant's House, responded to this review

We were both surprised and disappointed at this review. We try hard to please our guests and would have been happy to deal with their complaints about bedcovers had they approached us. Additional bedcovers are available on request. However these guests never raised this issue with us during their two-night stay leading us to believe that they were content with... More

The rooms were comfortable and the sitting room very once for a restful evening. The hosts were welcoming and answered all our questions, recommending the tour around the wall was a great tip. One of the drawbacks is the hunt for a parking spot if you arrive before 5pm and the ticketing agents seem to circle the block often. Breakfast... More

Lovely room, beautifully furnished. Breakfast is served buffet-style in the dining room and was very good. There is a lovely sitting room upstairs, and a terrace and outside gardens. The wi-fi reception wasn't great in the room, but I found that to be true everywhere, and this B&B has a computer available for guests in an upstairs alcove. The host... More
