I needed to find a B&B quickly whilst travelling to hospital with my daughter for treatment. It was high season, a lot of places I tried were full and I didn't expect that any place that had room would be particularly good. At first sight, the 'motel' style building that houses Harbour Lights seemed that my expectations would be met. However, I must say that this was deceptive - the style of the building and the lack of wi-fi in bedrooms was really the only disadvantage. Considering that this is really a factory-sized B&B, staff were very pleasant and very helpful and we were not made to feel just one of a number, despite the many people being fed and housed in the building. The rooms are very clean, reasonably large and reasonably furnished and -one of my bugbears about hotel rooms- the plug sockets were all working! Our bathroom had a bath with shower, which is always so good to find. There is a list of 'terms and conditions' in the room which is rather offputting to read, since it names the prices of fines and surcharges for various 'mis-doings' that are possible in the B&B world - smoking, leaving the room late on the morning of departure etc. (I wonder just how enforcable these would be in the event of someone doing something wrong and think it might appear more friendly just to ask people not to commit these sins!). Breakfasts were well cooked and served in a dining room with superb views. There was no problem in my taking a continental breakfast to the room for my daughter.
