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.... More

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... More

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... More

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.
