Bishop’s Gate Hotel

Places to Stay | Co. Londonderry, Northern Ireland

A former gentlemen’s club (Northern Counties Club) which once hosted Winston Churchill and WB Yeats has been brilliantly transformed into the Derry City’s most tasteful and elegant hotel. Welcome to the Bishops Gate Hotel.

In its reincarnation most of the building’s original features – sweeping staircase, Inglenook fireplace, decorative panelling and mouldings – have been retained or sensitively restored to pay homage to the rich heritage of the building.

The Bishops Gate hotel is located in the heart of the Walled City of Derry. It’s two minutes’ walk from the ancient city walls, and only five minutes down to the riverfront and the excellent Tower Museum.

The staff are great: chatty, friendly and very informative about a city they’re very proud of. This iconic landmark featuring 30 luxurious guestrooms is an intimate urban oasis blending Edwardian architecture, stylish appointments and luxurious facilities, while paying homage to the rich heritage of the building.

Bishops Gate Hotel is home to two unique signature suites which offer much more than just extra room. Like all the guestrooms in the hotel, these suites have been meticulously restored & thoughtfully designed, oozing character derived from original features. The Penthouse Suite seen in our virtual tour above is spread over 64sqm and boasts a spacious bedroom, separate living/dining area and large bathroom with bath and shower.

The newly built ‘9 London St’ is a contemporary ground floor apartment located adjacent to the hotel and is perfect for guests looking for a little more seclusion and privacy.

The Bishop’s Gate Hotel stands out amongst hotels and the building has a great history dating back to the 1800’s, which you can read a little more about here.
