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. As a motorcyclist touring... More

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. Room was nice size and there was a ground floor available. Breakfast was lovely and only few minutes from ferry which was... More

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay and once again I am sorry for the mix up over your arrival time.

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. I had no idea what to expect, and was very pleasantly surprised on several counts. 1) it was easy... More

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. The bike was locked up in a garage overnight, so we didn't have to lug all our gear off for security purposes and we were given great advice about good roads for the... More

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".

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.

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.
