This is the best one we have been to. Very clean, big room, with a lot of nice details. Hosts are really helpful, friendly and kind. Breakfast was excellent. We strongly recommend this place. We will come back!

This is a wonderful b and b with great location for the ferries...a wonderful hostess who provided the children with sweets and drinks as a welcome. Relaxing, homely and thoroughly peaceful night.
Great for couples, great for kids...and warm Scottish hospitality.

This lovely B&B is perfectly position if you are catching the ferry from Sranraer to Ireland as we were. The lovely large room with two double beds was exceptional, it had facilities for a wee baby if required. The hosts were very friendly and obliging. This is a great value B&B, lovely breakfast and service. Lovely area for walking along the coastal walkway. 5 out of 5. Would thoroughly recommend.

My family had to come to Stranraer for a funeral and could not have picked a better place to stay. Rhona and Colin were brilliant, couldn't have done any more for us. I have small children and they were delighted to be able to play with Rebekah and Rhianna (the owners children) which for us was really appreciated as we had lots to organise and its not easy with small children running around. We all hope to come back to the Harbour Lights at not such a sad time and thank our wonderful hosts for all they did for us, it made a very difficult time a little easier.

Colin & Rhona are the friendliest hosts we encountered in Scotland, and that's saying quite a bit. Lots of friendly folks. The room was lovely, warm, tidy and quiet. Colin suggested we check with Stena right off to book a ferry, as there were some delays the day before. Good tip! His dining tip was bang-on too. We made new friends while there, fellow guests from Nottingham England. Outstanding homestyle breakfast in the morning. Rhona makes a Ginger-Rhubarb jam that is tops. Aye! Great stay.

We stayed overnight at The Harbour Lights and were very impressed! It is very close to the ferry terminal so ideal for a stopover. We booked a family room and were delighted with the size of bedroom and the bathroom. Travelling with a six month old can be difficult but the owners had a cot ready for us and the bathroom had a changing unit and baby bath, there was even a moses basket in the wardrobe! At breakfast a high chair was ready for us so we could feed the little one.

The whole place was spotless and the owners were very friendly and so helpful. I would really recommend this guesthouse, especially if you have young children.

Fantastic experience from start to finish, even offered to help take luggage up to our room on the top floor!
Room brilliant, spacious and amazing across Loch Ryan.
Perfectly central, access to free public carpark, restaurants, takeaways and ferry terminal and I suppose for us the Loch and local fishing spots!
Scrumptious breakfast, with lots of choice, comfy bed, the only downside was that we had to come back home...
We will be back!
