Stayed at Serendipity from 22nd to 24th January. We had the double room on the top floor, overlooking Derry city, the views were amazing. The room was a decent size, clean and warm - however the bathroom was a bit small. The owner wasn't there during our break, and we were looked after wonderfully by Chris - who made sure... More

Hit with an unexpected charge because 2 of us stayed in a previously booked double room. No mention of this extra charge was mentioned when we arrived. The Don Bar round the corner is great. Lovely view of Derry from room. Not the friendliest of staff. On a hill.

We arrived hours too early but, seeing how much luggage we were carrying, Paul took pity on us and gave us our room. The room was gorgeous - furnished and appointed to the highest standard, including a beautiful shower/toilet. You will go a long way to find better. The house is in one of the more interesting streets of Derry,... More

The triple room is really nice and comfortable, the toilet is very clean (though the bath space is a little small). Breakfast is fantastic and there's a wonderful view of the whole city from the dinning room and our own room! also the hotel is not far from city centre, around 10 mins walk. Staff there are all really kind... More

Nice place. Great breakfast. The people that ran it were really nice. Had some trouble getting in when I first arrived as no one was there and the front door was locked. I found the owner's business partner across the street and he contacted the owner for me, which was a bit of a hassle with all my bags. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Serendipity House. It was clean, great breakfasts, courteous staff, lovely room, close to the city center. Tip: If you have luggage, it is worth the 3 pounds to take a taxi from the bus station. Although not far away, it is an uphill walk.

The owner was welcoming and professional. The location was a just right. The area appears a hot bed of history. Lovely, comfortable, convenient room with everything you could need. For a short trip, I would stay again.

The room was wonderful, amazing view of Derry and a great location. The only down side was the breakfast provided. I have stayed in a number of b&bs and this was pretty average. Would recommend for the rooms and location but I wouldn't count on the breakfast to satisfy you.

Cosy house in Creegan area but not up the hill. Warm, which is quite difficult in Derry. Close to the city center but in a quiet area, so it's very convenient. Nice & helpful staff. Good choice for breakfast.

Nice house, quiet, near City, helpful people, good price. The room was small, but clean and well heated. When I return to Derry later, I will book Serendipity House again and I'll recommend to my friends.
