  • “A fantastic find!”

    ‘We spent four nights in this wonderful accommodation. We are used to staying in 4 and 5 star hotels but the accommodation and service here surpasses all of them. It is a family home but the first rate large en suite rooms with comfortable king beds are situated on the top floor with a great view of the city and beyond. The family Ciaran, Clare, Jordan and Lucy are very friendly and we really enjoyed their company. The kindness and extras which they offer add to the value and charm – fun , friendliness, and lifts into town – do not be put off that it is just outside the centre. The town itself was buzzing last week as Derry was host to the Round the World Clipper Race – many of the crews said it was their best stop off port yet! So we have now experienced N.Irish hospitality and really hope to return. We will head for Victoria Gate if we do!! Thank you again to all the family.’

  • An excellent B&B

    ‘My friend and I were in Derry for Radio 1’s big weekend and we stayed at this B&B. It is in an ideal location only minutes from the city centre. The rooms are immaculate with no details being over looked. The food is first class with something to suit every pallet. Personally, my favourite part of this experience was the benevolent family running it. I honestly felt that there was nothing more that they could have done for us. This is a fantastic B&B and I would recommend it to all.’

  • Perfect!!

    ‘We stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast at the weekend and could not have asked for anything better!
    Truly a perfect place to stay.
    The rooms are clean, spacious and well decorated.
    Breakfast was delicious with plenty of variety, although we would strongly recommend the full cooked breakfast!
    The location was great for going into the town centre. Easily within walking distance to take in the fantastic views or just a few pound in a taxi.
    The lovely family who own this fantastic hotel have a great knowledge of the area and will be happy to recommend places to visit or things to see.
    If you are planning a trip to the area you will not be disappointed with this 5* accommodation
    Thanks for a great weekend Victoria Gate! ‘

  • Wonderful B&B with excellent services

    ‘We got Victoria Gate B&B as a last minute find and was a gem of a find! A wonderful welcome, perfect location from the city and outstanding hospitality. Ciaran and Clare couldn’t do enough for us, providing information on the city’s hotspots and giving us tips of where would be best to go for food. The room was beautifully decorated, spacious and kitted out with all the essentials. They provided a first class breakfast service with more than enough options to keep any tummy full all day long. The lovely, welcoming family atmosphere made us feel like home from the moment we walked in the door. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Victoria Gate and I would highly recommend it to anyone staying in the city.’

  • The most beautiful and clean B&B in Ireland

    ‘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!’

  • A real treat

    ‘Ciaran McCaul’s place just outside Derry was a real treat for us. A modern house perched on a hillside with views of Derry, it was squeeky clean, WONDERFULLY QUIET roomy and comfortable. It had lovely decor a very nice breakfast and a very comfortable bed. I can’t say enough about how helpful Ciaran and Clare were to us.. he met us in town to lead us there and then since we were late arrivals, he rode us into town to a great pub and came and got us later.
    Out of 16 nights alll across Ireland, our night there was the best.’

  • Home from home!

    ‘This by far is the nicest B&B we have had the pleasure to stay in. Ciaran and Clare made us feel so at home and our children really enjoyed their stay. Breakfast would rival any spread at any hotel…we had so much to choose from and all tastes catered for (even fussy children). We will definitely recommend Victoria Gate to friends and family and cannot wait for our next visit to Derry.’

  • Brilliant BnB

    ‘This is one of the best BnB’s we have ever stayed in. The rooms are fab and the breakfast is amazing-the choice and quality of food on offer is incredible. The location is beautiful, about 15 mins pleasant walk from the city centre perched on a hill overlooking the beautiful city of Derry. The McCaul family are warm, welcoming, helpful and friendly. Although we were there for the Fleadh which was a very busy weekend for them , Ciaran still managed to give us a lift into town and leave us at a wonderful restaurant on a busy Friday evening.’

  • Fantastic, Brilliant, Superb!!!!

    ‘Hi, I stayed here on the 24th August along with a friend after the first leg (220 miles) of Breast Way Round event and boy are we glad we did. It really doesn’t get any better than the entire experience with Claire and Ciaran. You guys epitomise everything the hospitality industry is all about. Rooms are spotless as is the entire house. Really well proportioned rooms and the breakfast on offer was excellent. Will be back next year DV for sure. Thanks again guys.’

    ‘This is by far the best B&B we have stayed at on our 3 month trip around Europe and the UK. Claire and Ciaran made us feel very welcome and went above and beyond to make our short stay in Derry the best it could be.
    The room was absolutely beautiful and had everything you could possibly need. Claire prepared a delicious breakfast for us and gave us plenty of tips for the rest of our time in Ireland. We would highly recommend this B&B to anyone as we could not have been happier with our stay.’

  • ‘Best room in Ireland we have found’

    ‘We have travelled for close to 3 weeks now around Ireland this BnB would have to be the best one yet, from the spacious rooms to the best Scones in Ireland without a doubt we where so impressed we extended our stay a second night.

    ‘Best B & B In Derry’

    ‘We thoroughly enjoyed staying Victoria Gate B&B! It is truly a lovely and peaceful retreat and only 5mins away from the city centre (via car) so one can easily get to restaurants, shopping, culture, etc… Ciaran and Claire are amazing hosts, making sure any questions you could have are answered to the very best of their knowledge. The room and bed are spotless and quite comfortable, honestly the best rest of our 5 week travels around Ireland, and the oh so delicious breakfast (you must try Claire’s scones!!) provided fills you up for your day on the go.

    We wouldn’t dare book anywhere but with them on future visits to the city! We couldn’t recommend them enough’

    by Caitlin Roth
  • Like a 5* hotel for B&B prices!

    ‘Easy to find.
    Warm and friendly welcome.
    Given tea and soda bread on arrival.
    Super king room is amazing, its Huge, decorated beautifully, very cosy and comfortable and being on third floor it has great views of both the city and countryside.
    Given tea, coffee and hot chocolate facilities, bottles of water and biscuits in room.
    Great advice given on visiting the local chippy, which we were aloud to bring back to the B&B and even had a table laid for us when we got back.
    Very quiet location but also only a couple minutes drive from city centre.
    We will definitely be going back.’

    ‘We were warmly welcomed into this family home! Peaceful, quiet gorgeous rooms, Spotlessly clean, comfortable, views over Derry outstanding. Spoilt for choice at breakfast, fresh quality food, a lot of hard work put in to this service! We appreciated the lift into the city a short distance away…thank you, we wouldn’t hesitate to book again!’

    by Kristen
  • Excellent Choice

    ‘We loved this B&B – our hostess couldn’t do enough for us. Our king room was spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. A made-to-order, delicious breakfast was ready for us within moments of entering the dining room. She even offered to drive us the few minutes it takes to reach the downtown area. We would definitely stay at Victoria Gate B&B again.’
