Well worth the small premium in price. The Arts & Crafts decor is really something out of the ordinary and a pleasure to see. We stayed in the Oriental room which is huge and has one of the most luxurious ensuite bathrooms we have seen. And Morvern & John are amongst the most gracious hosts we have encountered. We were travelling by bike, so John drove us to a restaurant 5 miles away rather than have us experience mediocre food offerings in Maybole!
