Had a nice stay at Serendipity house, Room had everything I needed. Quiet, clean and a comfortable bed. Location was great, walked 10 minutes to restaurants and pubs. All I could ask for. Breakfast was fabulous, fresh baked biscuits and a hot served bacon and eggs and all the fixings.

Perfect value for money, but you cant get it all in this BB package. Upside: The breakfast in here is more than you normally expect to find in this range of budget BB. Downside: A size of smaller room is what you get but thas the only negative. Over all a very good choice for your stay in Londonderry ;-)

I booked this trip as a Christmas/Mother's Day present for my mother. Neither of us had been to Northern Ireland and she really wanted to see the giants causeway, which was the reason for booking N.Ireland. we were made to feel so welcome from the get go, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Nothing ever felt like too much...
