We stayed at The Harbour Lights Guesthouse 4-6 August - a short getaway from London. It's a lovely, clean, friendly guesthouse. Great breakfast (banana smoothie particularly good), comfy beds, and we had a good view from our top room. Would recommend to friends as it was good value too!

Parking can be difficult in peak months and peak times but we still managed to find spaces on these occasions and the owners will provide good... More

The location is brilliant - right by the harbour & close to everything. You do however hear noise - the council seem to street clean every morning about 5am &... More

We booked the harbour lights because it stated on website that it it had a car park, although this turned out to be a mistake and we had to park in the harbour car park, the people at the harbour lights are extremely friendly, family run and were smashing, the breakfast was first class and the room clean and comfortable,...
