They call this a guest house but they certainly didn't make us feel like a guest! PROs: Very clean, central location in a charming, well-maintained location. Adequate morning breakfast with different home-made pastries (they do amazing scones). CONs: Teeny tiny room with the lumpiest bed I've been in since sleep-away camp when I was 10! They charge more then many... More

Stayed here 3 days during the Month of May 2014. The staff was great, the room which I stated was on the small side for the price we paid. The B@B was more like a bed. The breakfast was a joke, and the kitchen closes early so if you needed ice or anything you better get it prior to 9pm.... More

Although this B&B is pricier comparing to area motels and does not have a pool, it is definitely worth the price. The location is perfect – literally one-minute walk to the very busy and tourism-oriented Commercial St with shops, galleries, restaurants and pubs. Although the place is located in such a close vicinity to Commercial St, it is very quiet.... More

Great location and the surrounding outdoor garden areas were filled with flowers; all looked well maintained. The staff was fine, but the parking was a bit tight. We dared not use our car for fear that we would have no parking space when returning after a day on the beach. It's not a real B & B in the sense... More

Booked this because it was off main street. The house us nicely decorated and comfortable. We were upgraded to the Beaconlight Suite, which was very spacious. The only downside to this room is it's location under the third floor terrace. There were several times it sounded like someone was stomping about on top of us. If we met the "grumpy"... More

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. Mark was the perfect host. The breakfast was delicious. The area is lovely. We keep talking about that trip and remenber how great the Beaconlight Guesthouse was. Our only regret is that we are French so we won't have a lot of opportunities to come back... but we will definitely... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Beaconlight for a very short weekend away and were very pleased! We stayed in the off season so it was great value for our money. We were switched rooms when we got in, and stayed at the Long Point instead of the Wood End. Never really explained why but we didnt mind. The... More

The good points A beautiful property set in the ideal location. Clean, pristine with some lovely touches. Beaconlight came highly recommeneded by friends who had stayed there. One of the owners is charming and delightful. Sadly, the same can not be said for the other who we found to be astonishingly rude. Bad points This guesthouse promotes itself as being... More

We booked this guesthouse after reading some of the good reviews on trip advisor. There are times when you're not sure whether to read the terrible one's or not. Fortunately for us, I can say we have a very pleasant stay here and were made to feel welcome by the owners. We had arrived a little early, but were able... More
