My boyfriend and I stayed at Straven Guest house for Hogmanay - we had such a lovely time. Not only were the rooms of the highest standard, the hosts (Mac&Marian) were so welcoming, helpful and made our stay extremely pleasant. One of the highlights for us was the breakfast, there is a wide variety of options, however, we had a fully cooked breakfast most mornings which was delicious (a special added touch was that it was served until 11am on New Years Day!). Straven is a short bus ride to the City Centre, it is also so close to the beach which is a bonus. We could not recommend this guest house enough - we will be back!
