“excellent guest house”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

This was my second stay at this little find! The second visit was just as good as the first. Both rooms were v nicely decorated with large bathrooms. The little touches in the room were a delight to find after a day at work ie Bottled water, biscuits etc Breakfast is lovely and the couple who run it are as helpful as can be. Not sure what else anyone could ask for.

Many thanks again for a lovely stay. See you again next summer.

Excellent B&B run by lovely people, thanks again Colin & Rhona!
I have stayed here a few times when working in the area and have found this B & B consistently excellent, breakfast is lovely and I would fully recommend the bagel with cream cheese and smoked salmon. Chinese round the corner also very

My husband and I recently stayed here for one night. The guest house is the best we have ever stayed in. The bedroom was lovely and clean. The little extras that were left in the room were a nice touch. The bed was very comfortable and we both had a good nights sleep. The breakfast was very good with a great choice of what you would like to eat.

We planned to stay in Stranraer before catching the ferry the following day from Cairnryan. So we booked into the harbour lights B&B. Colin and Rhona were very helpful. We stayed in a double room ensuite. The room was clean and very well look after. You could see when entering the door that Colin and Rhona take great pride in the running of their business.

Our stay in Stranraer was to allow an early start to catch a ferry to Ireland. Our stay was very comfortable and the owner was very accommodating with our early start. This is the second time we have stayed in Stranraer at this B&B

This was our second visit to Harbour lights for a family visit to Stranraer and Portpatrick. This Guesthouse is a home from home. The hosts Colin and Rhona are very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are so cosy and better than any 4star hotel. The welcome trays are a real treat. Bathrooms are spotless and breakfast is first class. We highly recommend and we will return soon. The T Family.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
