This definitely was not up to the standard of others we stayed in in Nfld. The rooms were clean, but ours had a soaker tub taking up a corner of the charmless bedroom, sitting on an area of really ugly linoleum. Sitting on the porch allowed a view of every vehicle which passed-- about 3 feet away, and we were... More

I stayed here for two nights and could easily have stayed a week. The room was delightful! Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, with a window seat perfect for reading and a dormer window overlooking the harbor. The inn itself is on a small hill so you have a nice view. It's within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Melinda, the manager,... More

My family & I (wife & two young daughters) spent the first night in Newfoundland at the Harbour Lights Inn in Twillingate starting our roundtrip in Newfoundland. We arrived late and did not know what to expect. We were tired and it was dark, cold and raining. And here we go. We had a very warm welcome, felt at home... More

Lovely hosts, cozy rooms. View into the bay was beautiful. Was here for a business trip and decided to take a tour of the Icebergs, which is a must do!! WiFi was intermitent, so being a business trip was not condusive to this. Breakfast was ok, however was expecting more than a continental style breakfast. I would stay here again.

I actually did not stay at the Inn. I had not made any reservations and I arrived in Twillingate late in the evening. I think I may have disturbed the owner as I rang the bell twice. She came out and explained they had no vacancies. She then got on the phone and called other businesses. She managed to find... More

Despite the cold weather and the iceberg-choked harbor, we received a warm welcome from the operator's son. Because of the the many icebergs in the harbor, the boat tour we booked could not leave, but he was very helpful in providing other points of interest around to substitute our cancelled tour. Room was cozy and quaint, a quality I love... More

Rooms are as advertised and breakfast is better than most! Operators care about what they are doing. Very comfortable common area. Got to see in a few different rooms and all of them were charming. Would stay here again.

We were greeted by our lovely hostess Melinda, told what time breakfast was in the morning, and given the keys to our rooms and told how to enter from inside or outside. We spent four lovley days at Harbour Lights Inn, with the staff helping us to make reservations for shows, and boat tours. The rooms were charming and quaint... More

We've been staying at B & B's on our vacation and find that with the older homes they are unique. and one can only expect some rusticity. We loved sitting at the window looking out at the harbour. Our hostess greeted us and spent time to give us ideas of what to see in Twillingate as well as offered to... More

I found this place really shabby. Cheap bedding that smelled musty. Thin towels (only 2 in room). The rooms are small with cathedral ceilings which meant that I bumped my head getting in and out of bed! I agree with the Pine-Sol review--vinegar and water would be so much better! It smelled really chemically in the hallways. Breakfast was ok.
