We stayed here one night during our Paddywagon Tour. We were greeted by the owner and helped up the top floor with our luggage. On arrival to the room there was a fault with one of the bulbs which he immediately made a point of replacing and making sure everything in room is in order. Very pleased with the service!... More

Serendipity House is a charming old Victorian home within easy walking distance of the walled city, murals, and other sights. Our room was bright, clean and comfortable, and we had a fantastic view of the city and nearby cathedral from our window. The innkeepers are very friendly and welcoming, and we really enjoyed our brief stopover with them.

Stayed here for 2 nights. It was wonderful. We were greeted upon arrival and taken immediately to our room (top floor twin). Loved our room decor, size, etc! Water was even available in the room and plenty of plug outlets. I was a bit hesitant to not have an en suite but it was fine. In fact best shower ever!... More

Friendly staff. Nice room with great view of Derry. Interesting city is short walk from Serendipity. The history of Derry is worth investigating. Do a city walk with a guide. Try Fitzroy restaurant. Good breakfast at Serendipity.

We stayed one night here. It is in an excellent location, so we could walk down to Walls, Peace bridge, Guildhall and attractions comfortably. Shops are not very far. Room is also comfortable and no issues. Negatives are - they have a visitor book with no pages to add comments and last comment was sometime last year. We went around... More

Stephen was wonderful and friendly and gave us a nice tour of the home before taking us to our room. Our room was a... More
