“A friendly place to stay.”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

My wife and I travelled from our home in Tyrone to witness the "home-coming" of Colmcille (Saint Columba). On arriving we were greeted at the drive-way and helped in with our bags. We ask Ciaran, the joint proprietor along with his wife, for taxi numbers to take us into town later. Without hesitation Ciaran offered to drive us in himself, this set the tone for our stay that nothing was too much trouble. The room we stayed in was spotless with en-suite bathroom and the view over the city, lit up at night, was amazing. Breakfast was flexible on the Sunday morning and the empty plates were testament to a great "fry". Cereals, fruit and cold-meats were also available for those who watch their waistline a little more than me. A very enjoyable stay in an excellent family run business.

The property is located in close driving access to downtown. The room was very large and clean. The room had a great view of the town. Very quiet at night. Beds were extremely comfortable. The amenities were first rate. The food was above and beyond expectations. The hosts were very friendly and relaxed. This was actually our best B&B experience in Ireland.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor facing the street have the best view.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed our stay in this beautifully decorated B&B. The owners are very friendly and warmhearted. He welcomed us with tea, scones and pancakes, gave us a lift to the city centre and she cooked us a fantastic breakfast. It is the best place to stay in Derry!

Room Tip: All rooms are beautifully decorated!

My wife, daughter and I stayed here last week and had a brilliant experience: huge rooms, wonderful decor, and a delightful welcoming Irish family that were so helpful. To top it off breakfast was possibly the best I ever had. The poached eggs were just perfect. Simply excellent - thoroughly recommended!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our host came to our rescue when satnav failed. Hosts greeted us with homemade scones and a cup of tea. Very helpful with local knowledge and suggestions. Breakfast was beyond what we expected. Overall would have to be one of the most welcoming and thoughtful hosts we have encountered. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Any of their rooms would be great

I stayed in the Victoria Gate b&b for the walled marathon. A lovely family run business with top quality service. The McCaul family were more than willing to share their knowledge of the city with us. We received plenty advice on where to eat and drink and Mr McCaul also made himself available for dropping us to the town. A very spacious room with creature comforts. All in all a terrific weekend with no stress. Thank you again
