The owners of this guest house have done a lot to make travelers feel welcome. There are nice touches all over the room and in the wonderful common space overlooking the Oban harbor. Two problems that make this place less than idea. First, the shower has almost no water pressure (typical in these old houses turned guest houses?) and secondly,... More

Nice and very pleasant place to stay, friendly people and besides your room, you'll get to use a neat livingroom with a nice view over Oban harbor. If you have a Scottish breakfast you can skip lunch ;p

We very recently spent two nights in Oban as part of our trip around Scotland. We simply loved the homely feeling of the guest house, particularly after a hotel stay. The room was beautifully appointed and we didn't lack for anything. Breakfast was delicious and hearty, and we also enjoyed the close setting of the house to town, just a... More

I was looking forward to my stay but was left cold and hungry. I was staying here while working in the area and first impression was a very nice relaxed place to stay however it didn't live up to my expectations. I left my car outside and walked down to the town for some dinner as I was afraid I... More

Blair villa is a quaint hillside house. While bedrooms are not overly large there is a guest lounge. Wifi was patchy and parking on the street could be limited at time,. Easy walk in to the town but a bit of a climb back. Friendly host with good breakfast. Guest rooms are upstairs

Hubby and I had 2 nights here while on a trip venturing through lovely Scotland! The place was not hard to find as we had visited Oban before- and is in a great location for wandering around Oban or as a base to drive around and discover the sights. The villa sits on the hill overlooking Oban Bay and the... More

Traditional style Victorian guest house, clean and with interesting decor. Rooms clean and well equipped inc small fridge. Warm welcome from... More

Four of us spent the night at Blair Villa on our way to Mull... It is a small and friendly B&B... Only 3 rooms are available, which although small are very comfortable. The owner was friendly, welcoming and very helpful. A full Breakfast was the choice of all in the morning and it was very good one..!!! Set us up... More

Bed & Breakfast was what it was. I had hoped to find the warm Scottish hospitality but that was lacking. However on a plus note, many of the light fittings were beautiful and added a sparkle to the place.

Our room was very pretty, even though the view was restricted. It was nicely decorated and it seemed recently refurbished, yet pretty small. The Villa itself is a traditional Oban town house consisting of two floors, with the lounge on the upper floor offering beautiful views to the harbour and the city. There is a telescope too, even though I'm... More
