Paula and Graeme couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The room had all those little extras you'd expect from a 5 star hotel and the breakfast was superb. Can't recommend highly enough.The village (Crosshill) is lacking in amenities, which wasn't important for us as we were there for a family wedding at nearby Dalduff Farm but the surrounding countryside...

This was the best B&B we have ever stayed in.The breakfast was amazing and included fresh bread and home made pancakes. The owners were just lovely and went out of their way to help. From the fresh cookies when we arrived to the clean rooms and the amazing breakfast, everything was perfect. Will be back.

Stayed one evening while attending a wedding at Culzean Castle. Lovely welcome from Paula with fresh coffee and home baking. Accommodation beautifully appointed and perfect for a family of 4 with lounge and double and twin rooms. Breakfast - amazing!! We didn't eat again till dinner time. Would return in an instant and would highly recommend this lovely B&B.

“There are two rooms: a double and a twin. I had the Twin, which is in the eves. The headroom was limited, (I am 6' 1"), but okay. On the first night it rained really hard and it was noisy as I was very close to the roof. My Dad slept like a log in the double room ( which is on the ground floor)”
