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

we had a night here and overall it was very enjoyable. On the plus side the room was clean with a good en-suite with quality fittings. The breakfast offered a wonderful choice off a varied menu which included Haggis and oatcakes, scallops with black pudding, smoked fish, full Scottish or continental, and was well cooked. Our only quibble was that... More

Look at their winter rates until March £25 per night! That is a bargain for such a beautiful place. TV's that come out of the foot of the bed. Lovely hosts. AMAZING breakfast! Thankyou for having us, we enjoyed our stay.

An absolutely wonderful stay - after checking in and checking out of 2 very disappointing and bland hotels, we came across this gem - great hosts, beautiful room and fab breakfast. We loved the silver room and the tv popping out of the bed was great. The breakfast was delicious and we got lots of advice on what to do... More

A warm and welcoming awaited us and after being shown round the guest house a superb bedroom was ours for relaxing in. Beautiful views of the hills around Oban from our bedroom window. It was a shame having to get out of bed in the morning but breakfast was to die for, truly a magnificent scottish breakfast. Maureen our hostess... More

I'm so glad that Trip Advisor guided us to Mike and Maureen at High Cliff Guest House. This B&B is perfectly located and a two minute walk puts you in the center of town. They leave no detail overlooked, with tea, bottled water and biscuits provided in the room and delicious breakfasts every morning! Mike and Maureen are extremely warm... More
