“EXCELLENT B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Having booked a night at this b&b purely on the strength of other TA reviews, I was a little apprehensive that it might not be quite as good as the reviews say it is. But I have to say that it is indeed excellent in all aspects. I would go as far as saying that it is quite possibly the best b&b I've ever stayed in. Definitely intend staying here again, hopefully for more than 1 night as I did on this occasion.
I have only rated the "sleep quality" as average, but I have to emphasise that is nothing to do with the b&b itself but purely down to me as generally I have poor quality sleep.

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms available, and only saw "my" room so can't really say if one room is bett...

Dear Paul,

Thank you so much for your review, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us and hope the trip to Tyseley was enjoyable.

It is always difficult settling in a new place but Elaine & I were pleased that you slept as well at Flornorvan as you do at home.

It would be great to see you again on some future occasion.

Kind regards,

John & Elaine

We cannot rate Flornorvan highly enough. Elaine and John could not have been more helpful or more welcoming. We felt more like part of the family than visitors to their lovely B&B. We will definately be popping across to Kinver again, hopefully in the not too distant future.

If I was only allowed two words to describe Flornorvan it would be 'Truly Amazing'. Thankfully I'm not and want to share my recent experience. Firstly John and Elaine were wonderful hosts and nothing was too much trouble. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and the rooms very well appointed with every possible attention to detail. This is the most professionally run B&B you are ever likely to stay at.

Can't wait to return in the future.

On arrival we were met with a very warm, friendly, genuine greeting rapidly followed by a refreshing brew and homemade cake - both of which went down a treat. This b&b is a real gem and is neatly situated within walking distance of both the beautiful Kinver Edge and the village itself. We will definately return to enjoy the excellent homely hospitality bestowed upon us by John & Elaine. The planned improvements to build en suite facilities will only add to the popularity of this place. Next time though we will book our evening meal in one of the restaurants in Kinver well in advance due to their popularity.

Right from the start John and Elaine make you feel so welcome and nothing is too much trouble for them. They both seem to really love what they are doing and this shows in every aspect of their hospitality. The house is immaculate and very comfortable with a great little village within walking distance. Wish them all the best for the future.

I was unfamiliar with the extreme South of Staffs, but very curious about the Rock houses, you won't find a better, or better priced base for exploring the area than Flornavon we're certainly considering a longer stay next time
