We felt very welcomed by these wonderful ladies. Great location close to the train station and local bus stops. Comfortable rooms. Fantastic breakfast. Everything I remember about the highland trips of my youth.

Catherine was so accommodating and hospitable! The rooms were very clean. Breakfast was great! Catherine helped us with directions and restaurant advice! House has cozy feeling. Parking for our car out back was a big plus! Beautiful front garden! Will stay here again!

After abandoning a tent to Skye, we decided to stay in a b n b and found Ben View really welcoming, warm and convenient. The landlady was friendly and helpful, the room was really clean, had a really hot shower, was well priced, and comfy bed. There is no wifi, but we didn't need it anyway. The breakfast was brilliant,... More

We enjoyed our stay which was a last minute booking and the proprietor kindly recommended other Guest Houses for the remainder of our stay as she had previous bookings. The room was comfortable and the Guest House had a lovely atmosphere and reflected the fact that you were in Scotland.

Rooms very outdated and definitely not clean. The B&B does not offer any wifi. Breakfast is ok. Owner not very welcoming. Place definitely needs an update!!! Would not return or recommend! Walking distance to city, this is at least one good point.

We felt like this was a boarding house. No flexibility. In 2015 no wifi as the owner doesn't have a computer and can't see the need to provide access to it for guests. Tiny room on a busy road. We were on a bike ride and our bikes were left out in the open locked to a tree. Nice lady... More

When my husband's bag was sent to Amsterdam instead of Glasgow, the proprietor of this B&B was MOST helpful in phoning the Glasgow airport and helping us find the bag. She even called the next day to the airport to follow-up, even though we had left by then. This B&B is an easy walk from the bus or train stations.... More

I stayed at the Ben View with my two friends over one night - last minute booking at the desk, then no more vacancies...lucky! The lady at the reception was very helpful and could not do enough to make us feel welcomed and comfortable. Rooms were great and affordable - very clean and with all the facilities one needs after... More
