Parking was difficult at best. The room was ok but needs maintenance. Breakfast was good and it is always good to meet and talk to people for others places. A short walk to a good Italian restaurant. Great food and wine.

The view from our triple room was wonderful overlooking the rooftops to the old walled city. The breakfast was ample with a good assortment of hot and cold. The bed was large and very comfortable. It is in a renovated terrace, done very well.

Located well above Derry allowing to discover the city by foot conveniently. Try the freshly baked Scones for breakfast and be prepared for the surprise of paying 5% more if you want to use your credit card.

We were blessed to get a room with a view of Derry. We reserved a room for 3. It was compact. With luggage it made it very small. The shower room was tiny. The shower was very tiny. My husband and I are bigger people and it was a tight squeeze to get in the shower. The breakfast was excellent.... More

The accommodation was located in a residential area. It was on the first floor and I appreciated the help given by the staff in taking my case up. The room and ensuite was clean. Breakfast was substantial and good. Staff were very helpful in advising us of places to go to dinner. The centre of the old town in Londonderry... More

An excellent location. Staying in Serendipity House helped to give a more authentic feel to staying in this historic city. The owner made us feel very welcome and very much at home upon our arrival. I highly recommend Serendipity House to anyone wishing to stay in Derry.
