We really enjoyed our stay in Serendipity House. Staff went out their way to ensure that we were comfortable and had everything we could want. Their warmth and welcome was greatly appreciated. The dining room window provides a spectacular view across Derry especially at night when the city is lit up. Our room was comfortable and so quiet it was... More

Thanks too the family team that run the guest house. Breakfast = Fresh and promptly served with friendly smiles. Bedrooms = Adequate and clean - great views from the rear over whole city. Locality = 10 min walk into city centre (downhill - taxi back)

We stayed in Serendipity House on a Saturday night. There was nine of us in three rooms. The rooms were clean & tidy and the beds were very comfortable. We were given a warm welcome by the owner, who was very helpful in places to go. The B&B is a five minute walk from the city centre so very close... More

very close to the city centre, clean and great breakfast! Our room had a great view, we could see the city walls. There is free onsite parking. Would definitely recommend you to do the free derry tour. We found it very interesting and gave an easy overview of the history of derry

The hotel is in a residential street about 15 minutes away (walking distance) from the city center/walls. The owner have 2 similar hotels in the same street, so the property does not have someone on staff all the time. TV Remote did not work. Called the number posted for assistance for an extra towel and got: What is in your... More

We had a very small twin room with separate bathroom reachable over the corridor. The bed and linen was very short - not very comfortable. The owner lives in another house nearby and is reachable over phone when ringing the door bell. We felt like disturbing him when checking in. The bathroom was not well maintained: towel rack was detached,... More

Stayed overnight on a fleeting trip to Londonderry. the room we had was small with very little space for suitcases - and the bathroom was really tiny. thankfully I had an electric shaver. The bed however was very comfortable and was well ventilated. The host Stephen was really friendly, and the breakfast was outstanding. The location is close enough to... More

We stayed in a lovely room at this B&B, and found it very close to town, the owner and his son were incredibly helpful. The rooms were clean, tidy and had all the facilities required for a comfortable stay including free wifi. The breakfast was lovely. We would definitely visit again. Thanks

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
