Third visit, well looked after as usual. Can be a bit noisy if you have one of the annexe rooms which back onto the main road. Excellent breakfasts and a congenial host. Free WiFi, paper with breakfast.

Crossways House is approx 5 mins from the ferry terminal and Osbourne House is within walking distance.We stayed for 3 nights in the lodge at Crossways House which is a seperate block just away from the main house.

We were shown to one of the rooms in the house, beautiful and spacious, overlooking the garden. Good comfortable bed, tea and coffee and home made biscuits, hairdryer (which I always forget to bring!) all made...

We stayed for two nights for a wedding, with friends who stayed in another room. The welcome on arrival was friendly, check-in simple, and there were tea/coffee facilities with home made biscuits in the room.

I have stayed at Crossways before and am glad that standards remain high. I stayed in an outside room this time and enjoyed the sense of independence. I slept well and was not aware of any undue noise from the nearby road. Everything was clean, tidy and well thought out. I don't believe one would get a better breakfast -...
