We were a party of 4 ( 3 of which were Germans ) on our first trip to the south west coast of England. We flew from Hahn ( near Frankfurt am Main ) non-stop to Newquay, took a rented car and drove to the Harbour Heights Guest House and parked across the street directly in front on the steps...

Thank you so much for such a wonderful review. We really enjoyed your party staying with us and it was a pleasure to sort out your encounter with the local seagulls. I have also been on the receiving end of one of their gifts, It is supposed to be lucky? I am glad you enjoyed your trip to England and...

We stayed for a 3 night weekend. The guest house is spotlessly clean, light bright and airy. The owner is very friendly and we received a warm welcome. We stayed on the top floor which has not yet been renovated but was still of an acceptable standard. The lower floors have all been very recently decorated and look lovely. Large,...

Even though we arrived after the official arrival time, in the pouring rain - we were made to feel welcome and settled before the owner went out to a charity fundraiser. In spite of the fact that we were imposing on her personal time, we were not made to feel that we were a nuisance in any way. We followed...

Had the pleasure to stay at the Harbour Heights twice within two months and each time my wife and I loved it. Liz was a great host and nothing was too much trouble. On the first occasion in August we stayed in room 6 which was on the small side at the front overlooking the park, but it had everything...

We stayed here for only one night in September as part of a mini road trip down the coast. The room was beautifully presented: nicely decorated and plenty of space for 2 of us. We had an ensuite bathroom which was functional enough although the temperature in the shower wouldn't stay steady and alternated between too cold and too hot....

Thank you for the review and glad you enjoyed your stay. I am not sure why the shower did not behave, it is a new system and as far as I know it has not done it before, I will look into this. Hoping to get double glazing asap to stop some of the road noise. In talks with the...

Liz the owner of Harbour Heights was very welcoming on arrival, situated in a great location, close to the harbour and town. The room we stayed in was clean and fresh, breakfast was fab, lots to choose from cereals, toast, fresh fruit and yoghurt and Liz was happy to accommodate our slightly strange breakfast requests. We can't find any negatives...

Fabulous guest house which really feels like a home from home. Liz was very friendly and made us feel relaxed as soon as we arrived. I have a food intolerance but Liz happily ensured my breakfast was gluten free. Well located with only a short walk to the harbour..... hopefully we will be back next year.
