We stayed here prior to leaving on a cruise and it could not have been a better choice. The staff were so friendly and the location is perfect. The night before we had a great dinner and did some bar hopping right on the pier. The rooms were clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable we have... More

My boyfriend and I very PLEASED with the customer service we received from Mrs. Dee at the front desk. Not only was she professional ...she was helpful, greeted us with a smile (made us feel like family), and answered all our questions. Now that's what will make me come back and visit Harbor House. Now lets talk about the hotel.... More

Drove in to see Lyle Lovett at the Opera House and have a night out. After reading the recent reviews we reserved a room at the Harbor House. We were not disappointed. Large, modern immaculately clean room, very friendly staff, and convenient to good restaurants and the Strand... and a very comfortable bed. The most impressive thing: as the polar... More

This is a great location for a pre or post cruise stay. The hotel is just a couple of blocks from the cruise terminal and downtown Strand district.

We stayed the night before we picked up our cruise ship and the night we disembarked. The rooms were spacious and comfortable with with delightful views of the harbour. However, the most memorable experience of our stay was the hospitality of the reception staff… Dee was a joy… missing her already!

When we arrived, I was pleasantly surprised at the ease of parking and check-in. The hotel is beautiful with very modern furnishings, extremely spacious rooms and bathrooms, and the MOST COMFORTABLE BED... More

We had a reservation at Harbor House for many months and had received an e-mail reminding us of our upcoming reservation. When we arrived, we were told that we did not have a reservation, even though we produced proof. Our reservation had magically been moved to another hotel managed by the same group. It is an outrage that an employee... More

Close to everything. Walking distance to strand and restaurants. Very clean and very comfortable. Will come back again. Breakfast served every morning. Beds are comfortable. Only thing is in the room we had just had a shower no tub. And I'm not sure if other rooms have them. So I'd ask if you are wanting that. Very good views
