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.

Twillingate is lovely but if this is your first night in Newfoundland, do not confuse the lack of hospitality at Harbour lights Inn with what you will find at other B and B's. This is the only place where we were not greeted well and had to pay as soon as we walked in the door. The building looks nice... More

While the location is central, there are many other places nearby. The room was too small, smelled bad and there were not enough towels. None of the blinds covered the windows properly, including the one in bathroom which overlooked hallway. Way overpriced for its 2 star quality!! Coffee was cold in morning. zero charm.

Stayed here 1 night in order to go see the icebergs. There are not many choices in Twilingate so this probably one of the better ones. The rooms were okay and we booked two facing the harbour. It was clean enough but really is in some need of updating. We were disappointed by the breakfast in comparison to other b&bs... More
