A pleasant stop over before sailing in the Western Isles. We were very late arriving and, having phoned to say we would be late, the owners very kindly stayed up to greet us. Room small but comfortable and an extremely good breakfast.

This is a wonderful B&B. Maureen is very friendly and helpful. The location could not be better as it is just a short walk into town. Maureen recommended a couple of restaurants and the one we went to, Fish Waterfront, was excellent. Bring an appetite as the breakfasts here are enormous as well as being very good.

Second stay after 2012, but for sure not the last. If you intend to stay in Oban and looking for something realy cosy, genuine and unique, which is much more than a simple B&B this is definitly the perfect choice! Maureen and Mike are wonderful host, Breakfast is kinglike, atmosphere deeply relaxed, what else should I say..see you next year... More

Lovely warm welcome from Maureen when we arrived, and she was full of great recommendations for places to eat out in the evening. Room is perhaps a wee bit small if you have a few bags with you (we were in Mull, the smallest double room), but we were travelling relatively light, so it wasn't too cramped. Lovely and clean...

I enjoyed a very comfortable stay and would... More

We had a little trouble finding the place but with Maureen's directions we got there in the end. Its not too far from the city centre and nicely tucked away with a lovely garden in front for sitting and relaxing, Rooms are beautiful and well kept but a little on the small side. Linens and bathrooms are very clean with... More
