Stayed here last night in room 4. Beautiful spotless room with everything you could need. Comfy bed, lovely view, tea, coffee etc. Breakfast was amazing, freshly cooked to order with cereal, yogurt, fruit to choose from as well as fresh juice, tea and coffee. Would definitely recommend and will be back again. Thank you

We booked a night at the Harbour Lights simply as a stopover as we were catching the ferry to Belfast the next day from nearby Cairnyran.

The little shops were fun...
