I booked a nights stay for my wife's birthday having seen it on TripAdvisor awards. We were not disappointed. Arrived late afternoon and the receptionist was really lovely. We had booked a meal for 7.30 but wanted to change it to 8.30. This was sorted out very quickly and efficiently. We were shown to our room, a luxury on the 4th floor. The room was beautifully decorated and the furniture very comfortable. We had a stroll around the city walls and returned to our room to relax. At 8 we went down to the wig and gown bar and had pre dinner drinks served quickly by the staff. We went into dinner slightly early and had a wonderful meal washed down with a bottle of wine. The food was amazing, and the staff so polite and attentive. After dinner we returned to the bar area for a glass of whisky. The atmosphere was very friendly and several of the staff took the time to have a chat and serve us drinks. We had a good nights sleep, followed by a continental breakfast and a cooked breakfast included in the rate. Our visit over we left determined to return. This is a wonderful hotel with lovely friendly staff, in excellent condition. Food to please and drinks aplenty. Who could want for more? Thank you to everyone at Bishops Gate. (The only slight feedback - can you put more than 2 tea bags and two milk capsules in the room). Collapse
Very happily would return here!

The quality of this boutique hotel can be seen as soon as you walk through the door, I was asking about parking and the concierge took me outside showed me where to park across the road, took our bags and after taking my wife inside came across to the car park to make sure I'd been able to park and pay -basically £5.00 from 5.00pm to noon to the next day. The check-in was simple and straightforward. The room was both tastefully decorated and quirky with a traditional style phone and alarm clock very much in the keeping of the room. There was also two cakes awaiting for us with welcome written in chocolate. The in-room amenities were of good quality, with hairdryer, than and coffee making facilities, free wi-fi etc. We also used the bar and the restaurant and both were of the highest quality with a really good quality meal in the restaurant and a good atmosphere in the bar. This is a restaurant that locals use (and I can see why0 and if going for a weekend you may wish to book a table beforehand. We went on a Thursday and if there has not of been a cancellation we would not have got a table. The only criticism I have, and this is minor, I did feel they could offered more in breakfast stakes in relation to fruits e.g. grapefruit segments and possible include hash browns in an otherwise great fry! The hotel is centrally located just off the Diamond making it a great place to be able to visit local attractions. As mentioned earlier this new hotel developed from a gentleman's club will be our first choice accommodation in Derry in the future. Collapse

Absolutely superb overnight stay at Bishops Gate. I had booked the junior suite but on arriving got the great news that we had been upgraded to the Penthouse Suite. One of the nicest hotel rooms I have stayed anywhere in the world. Fantastic living room, bedroom and bathroom, so luxurious. Reception and all other staff we interacted with were so friendly and helpful from the moment we walked in the front door until the moment we left the following day. I really couldn't recommend this hotel enough. Collapse

Bishop's Gate is an elegant new hotel in a beautifully and sensitively refurbished historic former Derry gentlemen's club. The rooms are tastefully decorated with comfortable beds, large modern baths, and all of the in-room amenities you would expect in such a property. The bar/lounge and dining room are pleasant, elegant spaces and the food and service quite good. The staff at Bishop's Gate was outstanding in their warmth and professionalism...possibly the best I've experienced anywhere. This is a beautiful property in a prime, central location for exploring the city of Derry. We would absolutely stay there again and are pleased to give it our highest rating. Collapse
