Very friendly and very helpful proprietors. The room was spotless, of a good size, plenty storage space and very comfortable. Good breakfast and good choice. Wi-fi connection available. Very quiet area. Homely atmosphere, one of the nicest places we have stayed and would have no hesitation in going back.

My wife and I were made to feel very welcome at Blaven. The proprietors were friendly and had excellent local knowledge. Our room was spotlessly clean. The breakfast was excellent. Wi-Fi was fast, which makes a change. Effort is obviously made to maintain a high standard. House is on the corner of Fergus and Brown in a quiet residential area.... More

One of the best B&B's I've stayed in. Clean, comfortable and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for Pat - she even lent me a pair of wellies when my sodden shoes failed to dry out. Knowledge of the area helped me a lot as I was looking for small villages and farms where my ancestors had lived. Would definitely... More

Thank you for your kind words. It was a good job we had the same size of feet, might not manage to lend wellies to every guest. Hope that some of the "finds" turn out to be part of the family tree. And look forward to helping you again if you are back in the area. More

From the first 10 minutes of being there, I was made to feel like the proprietor already knew me, with her friendly and warm welcome. The B&B is a lovely property, with lovely fittings and finished to a high standard. The bedroom (family room) was bright and airy - with en-suite, and comfortable beds. Coming down in the morning, we... More
