From start to finish the experience at The Blaven is nothing short of fabulous. Pat the owner is incredibly friendly, extremely knowledgeable about the local area and beyond and goes out of her way to make you feel comfortable and to ensure you have everything you need, fresh milk for your room for example was a very nice change from those confounded little cartons that hotels insist on using. The Scottish breakfast is delicious and freshly cooked for you, a bit of haggis is a must! Everything is spotlessly clean and tidy, beds are comfy and the shower is powerful, just what you want after a long journey. Only a minor thing but the TV set in the room was incredibly small, could do with a bigger one but nothing to get upset about. The coup de grace for us when we were venturing out into the town was the offer of a lift, a quick tour around showing us the places of interest and where to eat etc. totally unexpected and well beyond the call of duty but not a problem for Pat. I can't recommend the place highly enough.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I trust you had a good journey home and that there have been no more headaches to date. Retirement sorted mine out but perhaps just a bit early yet for you ones. Regards Pat ps As this is my last year I will not be considering new TV's sorry.
