My partner and I staid for two nights at The Harbour Lights. We were greeted by Ruth the owner who was extremely nice and very helpful even offering to help with the bags and advising where to park. The building is old but had good character, there were a lot of stairs as is normal in this kind of building... More

We regularly stay at the harbour lights and decided it would be perfect for our honeymoon. We had our favourite room which looks out to the sea and harbour. Ruth, Steve and Nick were fantastic hosts as per every time we have stayed with them. Breakfast is always brilliant, what we were most looking forward to. We ate in the... More

I arrived just before 8pm as I had previously advised I would. I had to wait several minutes for someone to come and greet me as the two waitresses were busy in the restaurant. No one took me up to my room - not a major problem, but might have saved me some frustration later in the night if they... More

What a wonderful friendly place. We were made so welcome. Pristine rooms. Comfy beds. Don't know how they do it for the price. Asked for flowers to be put in one room and a lovely bouquet was provided. Nothing was too much trouble. Can't rate them highly enough.

We arrived, very late, after walking the Coastal Path from Barnstaple. They were all so friendly and helpful, and the huge, hot bath was a life-saver. the Cornish lager helped, too. We only stayed one night, burt we would certainly consider going back and staying longer.

Stayed here for a short break. Rooms were clean, windows single glazed but earplugs provided (look in the bedside table). Breakfast was tasty with a good choice of cereal, yogurt and cooked. Quite a good location in the town, easy walking distance to the harbour and loads of food options (we never got around to trying the in-house restaurant but... More

The Harbour Lights exceeded my expectations! Ruth, Steve and Nick were so welcoming, friendly and helpful. Location is great, with everything you could want on the doorstep, together with lovely coastal walks and beaches nearby. Spotless everywhere. We had a room on top floor which made the most of the lovely sea and harbour views (no lift so top floor... More

This place is exactly what I had imagined a seaside English B&B to be like. The service, outstanding. So friendly and helpful. The rooms immaculately clean with cute details like the wall art and door stoppers. The family room is great with 2 small separate rooms and small flat screen tvs in both. Perfect location, good wifi and great facilities... More
