We enjoyed an overnight stay at Blaven in Kirkcudbright. The proprietor was very welcoming and helpful and the B&B is located in a nice quiet area and was great value for money. The rooms were very clean with an extensive range of choices for breakfast.

Pat & her husband made us all welcome and were very helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. The location is quiet and peaceful and only a short 3min drive into Kirkcudbright where there are multiple food options and places of interest. The room was spacious clean and comfy. A good choice of quality breakfast items were offered. Ample parking... More

Welcoming and spotless B&B in quiet location. Large well equipped room. Excellent breakfast with plenty choice. About 10 minute walk to town centre. Nothing was too much trouble for the proprietor to make our stay most enjoyable.

Clean, tidy B&B. Lovely big windows everywhere, which let lots of light in. Enjoyed the amenities. Comfy bed. Very quiet and peaceful location. Just what we needed! Pat was very nice, helpful and friendly. Bit of a walk into town, but we love walking.

Quiet, peaceful location. Immaculate accommodation and the room was very comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent. The owner Pat even considered my husband's needs and provided gluten free products. Stayed for two nights and wished it had been longer. Would recommend this accommodation and wish to return for another visit. We really did experience personal service and felt extremely well looked after.

Blaven B&B is spotlessly clean and efficient, run by friendly and helpful hosts. A good breakfast and a comfortable bed. Bedroom a bit small, but bathroom spacious and well equipped. Location a bit outside main town, but easy walking distance, and a very quiet street.

Thank you for your feedback, I think part of our charm is from being in such a quiet area of town and there is no problem with parking cars here. I trust you have enjoyed the rest of your stay in the UK and we would hope to reach South Australia on our next visit. Regards Pat More

This is a first class establishment. We stayed in a family room with a large comfortable king size bed and a proper single bed. There was also a lovely sofa so we could watch television. The shower is spotless and excellent plentiful towels along with high quality toiletries. There is also tea and coffee with fresh milk together with biscuits... More
