          Serendipity GH was a very welcome place to stay for a couple of days. Arrival after a long train journey on a VERY hot day to find room was light and airy (three nice windows open) and an electric fan was provided (what a relief!)...More

          This guest house ticks all the right boxes. Nice room, super breakfast with choices and friendly hosts who are very helpful. Close to Torre station (there is also car parking outhouse the guesthouse) but seafront walking distance.

          The couple that run the Serendipity are professional, friendly and caring. The room was spotless, with some nice touches. The prices are extremely reasonable, and it's only a fifteen minute walk from town. I would recommend this place to everyone.
