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...

Arrived later than expected in the evening, after a long day travelling and received a warm welcome from Maureen, the room was lovely, clean and beautifully decorated, although i hadn't booked in for breakfast, a croissant and fruit was laid out on the table for me in the room for the morning. 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

We arrived late (dark) Maureen was thrilled to see us and got us settled quickly allowing us to relax and settle in for the night. Rooms are beautiful and each one is themed tastefully. We were two couples on a tour of the west coast and across the north to the Orkney Isles. We had lots of traveling to do.... More

Easily reached and not far from the centre of Oban, this is a lovely, peaceful house with very clean, comfortable rooms decorated with a sparkle of glitter. On arrival we were soon settled in by Maureen, a very pleasant person whose hospitality knows no bounds and her local knowledge proved most useful. Her breakfasts were the best we had in... More

Guest houses and B&B near ferry terminals can be a bit mixed due to the many one night stays they have to accommodate. We actually planned to use Oban as a base for three days and were pleased we chose High Cliff. It is within easy walking distance of the train station and ferry terminal which was a must for... More

Had a very pleasant stay here at High Cliff. Recieved a very warm welcome from Maureen, and she gave us advice on picking a local pub for dinner. Very clean and cozy, with dazzling decor! For breakfast the room is set at a large table, making it easy to chat with fellow travellers! And the omlette I had for breakfast... More
