Stayed here for two nights (came for the Womens British Golf Open at Turnberry). Clean, comfortable, warm and cosy room with everything you might need for your stay. The breakfast was beautifully cooked, well presented and most important - tasted delicious! We would definitely come again if we were ever in the area.

Having arrived late in Stranraer, we stopped at a garage to enquire about B&Bs and were told about this one. We could not have been more lucky! Our en suite room was well appointed and very comfortable and we were offered fresh milk as well as the provided uht cartons. Gayle was very kind in providing us with a map... More

The bedrooms were very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The hostess was very helpful and welcoming. The dining room was smart and the breakfast was excellent - wide choice and well cooked. We would definitely recommend this guest house.

The room was clean and comfortable but a little small. Our room was ensuite. The bathroom seemed to be added on later. It was small but clean. Parking was easily accessible in back. Breakfast was available but we chose not to get it since we were leaving first thing in the morning.

This is an excellent b&b in a large, characterful house and is in a good location on the main road half a mile from the town centre. A very friendly welcome, a lovely room with a good shower in the en suite. The breakfast was excellent. It has to be said that Stranraer disappointed as a town itself, but it... More

Our stay at the Cross Haven Guest House Stranraer was very enjoyable with warm welcome and a very clean and comfortable room. The breakfast was excellent with a very good choice we both liked the bird feeds outside the window in the garden which meant the birds visited them given some very interesting topics of conversation.

Be sure you make clear and reconfirm if your check in will be after 8 pm. I did both but it was missed and we called on our way and very less than enthusiastic. But apologized next morning.

I was taking the early ferry from Cairnryan and needed a stopover. The Cross Haven Guest House proved to be ideal, with parking, a freshly furnished, comfortable room and ensuite shower/ WC. All for a very reasonable rate.

I was away on a fishing trip to Mull of Galloway - a 3-hour journey, so we had to leave early. My friend and I decided to stay somewhere down there overnight, and he booked us into this B & B.

We stayed here for one night on our trip around the UK. Lovely part of the world and the B&B is so handy for the town centre.
