Upon arriving we were greeted and shown our very impressive room. The room was super clean, beautiful, and spacious! The area surrounding is quiet, quaint and safe. Just a short walk to all the resteraunts and the train/ferry. Breakfast was wonderful!!! We had a great stay!

Finding appropriate accommodations for my travels to Ireland is always difficult, as I bring my two small dogs with me. Many places that advertise being "dog friendly" end up being less than acceptable for the dogs' owners. I would stay at Cross Haven whether or not I had pets with me, because the service and rooms were first rate. Very... More

My son and I were 2 of the many people stranded due to flights being cancelled because of volcanic ash. We stopped off at Cross Haven on our convoluted way home just for one night. It is a beautiful guesthouse run by very nice charming hosts. Breakfast was marvellous. To top it all they took us to the station in... More

Hi, we stayed at Cross Haven Guest House in Stranraer on 25th/26th March 2010. After a long day traveling, and experiencing pretty wet weather, we were looking forward to a comfortable stop-over. We really enjoyed our stay - the room was large, comfortable, very well-appointed and the breakfast and hospitality excellent. We quickly re-charged our batteries ready for the next... More

Host family is great with friendly hospitality, good food and consideration. I really enjoyed having some chat with him, and the food was best to none. Stranraer is not an easy place to find an accommodation, but this is really well worth for money!! Strongly recommend it!! for anybody

Just back from an overnight at Cross Haven and had a super stay. Can recommend as a base for the area. We found the place warm, comfortable, clean and friendly with a good selection for breakfast. Parking is at the rear of the house with the entry doubling up for a local council training school.

I have just stayed at this guest house with my husband and two friends. We were all very impressed with the rooms, the food and welcome from Gayle and Michael. They couldn't have done more for us. We are all looking forward to a return visit. Thankyou for a super stay, Sandy Bentley

Having decided to visit south west Scotland for the first time, we were glad of our choice of guest house. We were made most welcome by Mick and Gayle, who were excellent hosts, and were willing to answer any questions we asked of them. They pointed us in the right direction for food on an evening and towards some beautiful... More
