Stayed on the top floor of this old house. Very quirky with floors that are uneven, but understandable when you realise the age and history of the house. Bed very comfortable and room clean. One draw back was that there were only net curtains in the bathroom, which at night when you needed to put the light on were not... More

Very poor standard of accommodation. Bed and carpet stained, wardrobe needs repair and bathroom is without privacy due to holey sheer curtains that did not fully close. Spa was surrounded by cracked tiles and heater in bathroom covered in rust. Tried to use spare pillows but those were creased and dirty (used by previous guest?).

As my old headmaster used to say to me, "YOU REALLY NEED TO TRY HARDER" A very comfortable bed but here it stops, an attempt to renovate but failed miserably with a lot of 2nd rate DIY. Unable to open windows, carpet stained, floorboards full or holes and floor sloping quite severely. The restaurant was just ok, over cooked scallops... More

We stayed here overnight on route to Oban. Our room, on the ground floor, overlooking the garden was pleasantly decorated with a small, but functional bathroom; the shower was much better than we have experienced in some more expensive establishments. The breakfast, taken at the adjacent George Hotel is excellent. The room and breakfast was good value for money. The... More

Stay here a couple of times for a week's holiday - Room 4 on both occasions - very large room with a very large comfy bed - Unfortunately on our 2nd visit it had been taken over by The George Hotel and the superb Fish Restaurant from our first visit (our reason for staying here) was closed for renovation. However;... More

Once we got to our room it was excellent but the check in, parking, and staff were extremely disappointing. Had to wonder around to figure out where to check in. There was no signage directing us to the George Hotel, the owners. Entrance way needs cleaning and repairs. Normally at b and bs you meet fellow travelers but as breakfast... More

We had a nice room in the The First House which is just next door to The George Hotel. Our evening meal in The George was very good, a great choice of fish dishes (my smoked hake was delicious) and some really good ales. Breakfast was varied and to a high standard. Service from the staff was excellent. Good value... More
