Positive Reviews

The rooms are clean and comfortable

The guest rooms and bathrooms are spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds made up with luxurious bedding and power showers make you feel relaxed. Rooms at the rear of the property boast beautiful, expansive views of Derry.

A good location

Despite the fact that Serendipity House is located on a residential street, you are within walking distance of lots of restaurants, bars and shopping. Derry's city centre, where you'll find the bulk of the city's must see attractions and even more restaurants and eclectic shops, is just a 10 minute walk away.

This is a non-smoking property

If you are not a smoker, you'll be happy to know that this B&B has a non-smoking policy both inside and out. This means you can breathe easy on the smoke-free back deck. And you'll find that the guest rooms smell nice and fresh and do not have the residual scent of stale, second-hand smoke.

Negative Reviews

Things can get noisy

If you are looking for a quiet stay, be sure to ask for a room at the rear of the property overlooking Derry. The front of the B&B, while facing a residential street, is still subject to traffic noise at night.

The owners don't live on property

The owners do not live on property which can be a bit of a hassle if you encounter any maintenance problems or lose your keys. However, the owners do live nearby and can be at the property in just a few minutes.

The guest rooms need TLC

The guest rooms and bathrooms, although clean, are in need of some TLC. Bathroom fixtures that are on their last legs and furnishings that are in need of repair could detract from an otherwise pleasant stay.
