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

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

Well placed for visiting Oban, easy walk to the sea front and other attractions. Had two comfortable nights there Excellent choice of fish restaurants nearby. Car parking a little difficult on the steep hill outside. Room was well equipped but a little small

Theres not really much to fault with this B&B. It's warm and welcoming with beautiful views from the guest lounge. The bedroom was nice, although the bed was a little uncomfortable. The huge pillows were great though! It was also very quiet. Shower room was a bit small, but apart from that, everything else was perfect for our one night... More

our old lumpy mattress had a knackered topper felt like sleeping on top of a duvet. Breakfast was bad, cheap sausages, undercooked tomato and average fried eggs. No mushrooms or beans. Host was helpful with local area information and building itself is charming. But with a bad nights sleep and a poor breakfast, saw little value for money.

The rooms may not be larger, but they are tastefully decorated, well equipped, quiet and cosy. The host is very friendly, helpful and efficient. Superb location with great views over Oban, the centre of which is only minutes away on foot. great choise of breakfasts, which are all very tasty and quickly served. And very modestly priced on top, This... More
