I recently spent a weekend in Kinver for a wedding. Flornorvan was perfectly located on a quiet road, just downhill from the church and a short stroll along a footpath from the centre of the village. The room was roomy, nicely decorated, and well appointed, the bathroom great, the breakfast plentiful, perfectly cooked, and delicious. John and Elaine are very... More

I had occasion to stay over in Kinver recently and am glad I chose Flornorvan. John and Elaine are very caring hosts and take obvious pride in their B & B. Their local knowledge will be of added value to anyone not familiar with the Kinver region. Their home is very comfortable with nice amenities, is spotless, is in a... More

A friend and I stayed for 2 nights, whilst completing a leg of the Monarchs Way. John very kindly transported us back from our next days walk, and then took us further for the next stage. It was so nice to just finish the walk, and he drove up! The location, and accommodation were fantastic, and service second to none.... More

Dear Diana, You know what the greatest thing about running a B&B is don't you ? It is the wonderful people we meet from all walks of life. It was indeed a pleasure to meet you and Margot and chat about life and your own B&B. Glad the rest of the walk along our section of the Monarchs Way went... More

A lovely B&B in a great location. John and Elaine were perfect hosts and made us feel very welcome.

I stayed with John and Elaine for two nights whilst on a short leisure visit. From the moment I almost arrived (thanks to a malfunctioning SatNav) nothing was too much trouble for them. John's directions to my out-of-the-way destinations were spot on and Elaine's care and concern over my dietary requests were also out of the top drawer. The room... More
