Rooms very outdated and definitely not clean.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

I spent a night at Ben View guest house during a 2-day trip around the Highlands. The booking was made by the company organizing the tour. The house itself is old and charming. It is situated near the town center (5-10 minutes walk). The lady was very polite and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable, a little bit old,... More

We stayed here over night during a 2-day highland tour. The tour booked the this guest house for us. When arriving, we found it was a very nice guest house. It had a nice living room and kitchen downstairs. The guest room was clean. Some old ladies stated to serve breakfast for us 15 minutes before the normal time at... More

I stayed here with my (adult) daughter and while it was clean and adequate, there were some important negatives and overall it didn't compare well with others we stayed in in Scotland. The first negative was the pricing. We wanted two single rooms and though there were plenty of rooms there were no singles, so the owner said she would... More

I stayed at the Ben View one night during a 2 day highlands tour. I found the room to be cleaner than most hotels I've stayed in, the sheets smelled like they were freshly washed and the bed was super comfortable. Breakfast the following morning was delicious and the owner went out of her way to make sure we got... More
