We have just enjoyed a three night break at The Harbour Lights. The new owners Lynn and Peter have carried on where Diane left off by giving us such a warm and friendly welcome. The food was excellent and the rooms where spotless. Looking forward to returning in August.. Jean and John (Bilston West mids )

We stayed at Harbour Lights for 2 nights. Everything was perfect! We had two rooms on the top floor with sea views. Both rooms were spotlessly clean. Hospitality tray replenished each day and fresh milk was available in the fridge on the landing. The breakfast choice was also excellent. Help yourself cereal, fruit, juice etc and then a choice of... More

Just returned from a two night stay at the Harbour Lights. The lady who owned it was lovely, breakfast was superb and the room was spotlessly clean. Great location for exploring the local area. Would definitely return.

.......... with somewhere welcoming, providing excellent accommodation and service to return to each day. The only downside was that rooms on the front are a bit noisy due to traffic, but that being said the bus stop nearby with frequent buses was very useful.

I am so glad you enjoyed your stay Geoff and thank you for your review (great photo). There is so much to see on the Jurassic Coast and if you come again, do ask for a quiet back room, with a lovely view of the garden. More

This guesthouse is in a pleasant wide road, but was so quiet that I could not believe there were other residents. Everything was spotlessly clean, the staff were very pleasant and the atmosphere relaxed. The next time I visit Weymouth I would certainly wish to stay here again .

We spent a couple of night here over the Summer break and it was great. The host is willing to go that extra mile to make your stay great. Breakfast was a great experience. Plenty of fresh produce and a great Full English

We usually travel trying to stay in B&B or Guesthouses beause of the chance that it brings to talk and chat with the hosts. Unfortunately, in Harbour Lights Guest House was not the case. We wanted to book here because of the great reviews here in Tripadvisor, so I send the booking form via their website. No reply. I sent... More

You clearly do not understand the rating system in this country, Harbour Lights is well within the Visit England Four Star category for a Guest Accommodation (hotel ratings are different). We would NEVER place dirty towels back on the towel rail. If they were placed in the shower for replacement as we ask guests to do, clean ones are always... More

Was lucky to get their last room, a double room for single occupancy on the day I telephoned. Bit more than I wanted to pay but as it turned out pretty good value for money. Excellent location - plenty of parking, on a 10 minute bus route to Portland and Weymouth town centre which was really just a 10 minute... More
