Reviewed 10 June 2014

Spent three nights here. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Owners are very nice people and the breakfasts were very good. Made a good base for touring around the Mull of Galloway and beyond. Anyone who likes gardens should certainly follow the "Garden Route".

Thank you for your positive comments and I'm glad that you highlighted what a wonderful area this is for garden lovers. We hope to welcome you back to Cross Haven sometime soon. The weather just now is beautiful... just right for visiting gardens or a walk along the beach.

We arrived here on our motorbikes and as someone has previously said, the garage was opened and ready for us to store our bikes.......
The house is a stunning house and very well maintained.
The owners are very friendly. The rooms are spotless and very comfortable.
We didn't get to try the breakfast as we left very early to catch a ferry, but I am sure it would have been amazing judging by other peoples comments....

A lovely stay.... thank you.

just returned from our 3rd short stay at the cross haven, usual warm friendly welcome, always spotlessly clean and cosy, breakfasts are amazing, we return here because of these features. and having recently spent a few days at easter in a larger port patrick hotel which we would not return to, it could certainly learn a thing or two from this lovely guest house.if your are looking for peace n quiet, cleanliness, and an amazing breakfast and like us just want some "us time" then this is the perfect place.

Room Tip: we have stayed in the twin downstairs room and in room 2, both excellent.

Thank you for your positive comments and thank you for returning to Cross Haven for your recent stay in Stranraer. We hope to welcome you again in the future too. Perhaps next time you should ask for room 3 which is actually our biggest room, then you can do a full comparison!
Thanks again

I really enjoyed my stay here - the room I had was beautiful, the bed was so comfy, the breakfast was great and set me up for a busy workday, and the owners were really lovely. I especially liked how many books there were in my room, really nice touch :)

I stopped off here during a weekend away on my motorbike. When I arrived, the garage was opened immediately for me to store my bike, which was great. The single room I had was very clean, had a VERY comfortable bed, decent-sized en-suite, TV, tea and coffee etc and more than adequate room for a single biker with hard motorcycle panniers. Breakfast in the morning was excellent; lots of choice and really well cooked.

I enjoyed my stay here and will certainly book again if I ever need a stop over in Stranraer in future.

We have stayed with Gayle and her husband at least 5 or 6 times now - usually to catch a ferry the following day, and last July we stayed 4 nights for a holiday in the area. It is quiet, very comfortable, very clean - boh upstairs and downstairs. The breakfast is excellent with a good choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurts, plus cooked items. Parking is good and safe and is tucked away behind the guest house which is a real bonus. We can thoroughly recommend this Guest House to anyone. We are already booked for one night in April 2014.

Room Tip: The room downstairs is a twin - and good if you don't like climbing stairs.

Warm welcome, rooms clean and comfortable, not noisy at all - indeed the town is not the most active I have ever been in! Had to catch the morning ferry so missed what Im sure was a good breakfast.Realistic value too.
Tip for other visitors, park behind the house up the alleyway to the left of the property.
