We stayed here for one night while attending a wedding in Stranraer. We stayed in a twin room which had a gorgeous view of the water. The room was a big size and was extremely clean and in excellent condition. There was some bottles of water, toffees and shortbread which I thought was a wonderful gesture. The bathroom was also...

Harbour Lights is one of a number of row-houses located on the waterfront in Stranraer, Scotland, easily identifiable by its dusty-pink facade. Our room and bath were just the right size, beautifully furnished and meticulously clean, memorable as well for its polished wood, glass, and shiny brass. In the lovely dining room, breakfast was made to order from a generous... More

We were in room 1 which was the only room left. It was a twin room on the ground floor on the front. It was spotlessly clean... More
