The location is perfect right in front of the bay. We sat outside enjoying the summer weather and amazing sunset (mid August) drinking coffee in the evening. The rooms are cozy and nice, old-style. The single rooms are a bit small but that's OK. If you have a problem for carrying heavy things beware that there are a lot of... More

Stayed at Ayres Guesthouse for one night while on an overnight stay in Oban. The guesthouse was perfect for us, easy to find, fantastic location - less than 5 minutes to town. The room we had was a big double room with a sea view. The room was very clean, bed was comfortable and it had a bottle opener which... More

Nice single room with a view of the sea was great ! Pleasant owner and nice clean value for money room. Bonus was I could park my bike out front between the flower pots, local to all amenities in town and a great wee bar next door called markie dans. I was left to get on with it here which... More

Nice wee b&b in the perfect location for a short stay in Oban. Only stayed for one night but would definitely return. Our double room was a nice size with a lovely view. Not sure of the man/owner who checked us in but he was very welcoming and friendly. Coffee and cereal bars for breakfast suited us fine! Room (and... More

Great place to stay in Oban. Bryan could not have been a more gracious host. Walking distance to everything plus a great view of the water. Nice pub next door for outdoor drinks. Rooms were very clean. No cooked breakfast but no problem. The breakfast bars and coffee are all you need.

Made very welcome by owner Bryan who gave us great advice about parking and local eateries. We chose the Fishouse Restuarant and his information was spot on. Our room on top floor with sea view was clean, quiet and comfortable. Worth the money for fantastic view alone. Would stay here again for value and location.

I was travelling with my mother, and rented the family room in the Ayres guest house. The room was comfortable and clean, quiet at night. Being on top of the house, we enjoyed gorgeous views of the bay. It's about 10 minutes walk from the train station, along the sea front, again with great views. This guesthouse does not provide...

We'd booked a family room for our three nights in Oban. The room was clean and big enough for a family of four. The comfortable lounge was also welcome, although we didn't spend much time there as there was so much to do locally.

Nice little guest house on the sea front. Bedroom was clean and had everything you needed. Bed was comfy, view was lovely, split only by the poor Scottish weather. Close to metered parking and close to all the sights in Oban. Will return at some point.
