My wife and I stayed overnight prior to catching the Belfast Ferry from Cairnryan. On arrival we met Colin Brown who showed us to our room (No.2) and explained the services available both in the guest house and adjacent to the property. The view from our room looked out across a public car park and then onto Loch Ryan. Although... More

Owners looked after us well and do a great breakfast. Good cooked one as well as bowls of seeds, dried and fresh fruit to put on different cereals, muesli etc. If over 6 feet, try not to be late to check in like us as top floor I couldn't stand up in.

This is a really great, cosy B&B. We were made very welcome and shown to our room which we found to be very clean and comfortable with nice views. TV, comfy bed and brew up facilities in the room were first class. The breakfasts were freshly cooked and absolutely brilliant! Highly recommended!!

My wife and I had a lovevely two night stay at Harbour Lights. The rooms are very comfortable and Colin & Rhona's breakfasts are truly wonderful. Parking outside is plentiful and the location is very handy for Stranraer itself, the Irish Ferries at Cairnryan and for the Dumfries & Galloway area in general.

Our room was extremely clean, extras like toffees and biscuits were a really nice touch. Recommendations for our evening meal was perfect. We joined in on the local quiz night and the locals were welcoming and fun. Meal was great. Breakfast was ample and well cooked and presented, would have no hesitation in recommending this establishment.
