The little shops were fun... More

Stayed at the Harbour Lights Guest House with my two boys. Stayed in the family room which was a lovely bright clean room with plenty of space. Breakfast was plentiful in the morning with something for everyone. Would definitely stay here again.

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...
