We stayed in the triple room for 1 night, whilst on our way to Mull. We had a great stay, room was a good size and very clean and the bathroom was great too. The owner was very friendly and we will be booking again next year for our annual Mull trip. The breakfast was good and the lads enjoyed... More

we recently stated for two nights and found this a charming guest house. The room was clean, bright and inviting, the buffet breakfast was great, plenty of variety and very relaxed atmosphere. The location was good a short stroll to the harbour. We would not hesitate in returning or recommending this guest house to friends.

We booked Raniven Guest House based on the reviews here and we weren't disappointed, particularly at the price we got. The location was central with on-site parking, a boon in Oban which should not be underestimated. The guest house was clean, nicely furnished and comfortable. Breakfast was continental but fresh, well supplied and perfectly adequate. All in all an excellent... More

We stayed here in July 2014. The accommodations were adequate and clean, and the host was warm, welcoming, and helpful. The breakfast was continental and left a little to be desired. Great location, off-street parking, central to town and an easy drive/walk to the ferry terminal.

Our room was small & on the top floor. The bed was comfy & the room was perfectly fine if not charming. It was an OK walk to the waterfront for dinner & the hosts gave us some ideas for stops the day we left on our way to Inverness. Not the huge hot breakfast, which was also fine with... More

I stayed here with my husband for two nights recently. The owners are very friendly. We had the first room at the top of the stairs, it was a great size and the bathroom was a good size too. Breakfast as mentioned previously is buffet style with plenty of fruit, croissants, cheeses, cereals, etc. I had toast and lovely hot... More

I stayed here with a friend for two nights. Simply put, Raniven Guest house is an excellent place to stay. Moira and Stuart are warm and welcoming. The room was very clean, with lovely decor. The breakfast was the best we had during our travels, we liked the continental-help-yourself-set-up. Oban is a beautiful town, well worth a stop over.
