This was a great place to stop while visiting Derry. Rooms were nice and clean. Bathroom was small but had everything you would need. Breakfast was good and the price for the stay is unbeatable. Great value!

Neighborhood not attractive. Rooms at third floor with stairs.Very small bedroom, even smaller bathroom with very, very small, almost unaccessible sink. Wifi was bad and was out of service for a long period. No eggs available at breakfast.

Thank you for the lovely overnight stay at your beautiful guest house close to great live music. The rooms were very comfortable, spotlessly clean and bathroom facilities although small were perfectly adequate. I got used to small bathrooms in Ireland.

We booked at the last minute, arrived to a warm welcome and to find the hotel is located on a quiet side street with a beautiful view over the historic city. Bathroom was across the hall but private. Nice to have a cooked breakfast!

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 ;-)
