Harbour Heights B&B WOW! We had the pleasure of staying here recently, it really has everything you could wish for a short stay, fantastic location to town, restaurants, bars, marina etc. The rooms are decorated to a high standard and presented beautifully, comfy bed, powerful shower and the breakfast was spot on offering plenty of choice and as much tea/...

Exceptionally hospitable host & hostess, could not have been more helpful when illness on the second day delayed our departure. Breakfast was among the best we have ever had had in terms of freshness, quality and enjoyment. Extremely convenient location, very comfortable and of course, very clean.

This was our second stay at Harbour Heights in Dartmouth. This time we were a 4 generation party of eleven with seven adults and four children (one under three). The house is wonderfully set up and the owner contacts you before the visit to check on how rooms should be set out in terms of beds so that all is...

A lovely little place to stay, nice clean room, a very welcoming host, who was genuinely kind and helpful. A fantastic cooked english breakfast, and lovely freash bread, cereals and juice, for the price we paid we couldnt fault our stay, the only slight critism is the main road was noisy

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...
