Ayres Guesthouse is very centrally located in the town. It's very comfortable and clean and excellent value for money. Our host was friendly and welcoming, very helpful and informative with his local knowledge. They don't serve breakfast as such but offer a great selection of hot drinks as and cereal bars in the morning. There are places nearby where you... More

We stayed in a sea facing room for 2 nights, they were friendly and helpful. Room had everything we needed, excellent value for money. No breakfast but had very filling breakfast in Wetherspoon near the ferry terminal, so no complaints.

We had a great stay here. Our room was overlooking the harbour and the view couldn't be beat. Our room was clean and comfortable. The host was friendly and really helpful. Price was reasonable. You don't get a full breakfast in the morning, just cereal bars and coffee, but frankly we were sick of having a full breakfast first thing... More

We rented 3 rooms for a night. Two of the rooms had beautiful water views, the 3rd room was on the top floor and had a skylight in the bathroom. The owner of the Ayres Guest House was very nice and accommodating. Rooms were furnished just okay, showers were small. As typical of most of the places we stayed in... More

Nice enough guest house, friendly helpful owner. Coffee/tea and breakfast bars only, no cooked or continental breakfast offered. Great location on the front but we had a back facing room so couldn't experience the great views on offer.

We stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed our wonderful family room view of the bay every day! It is well located to all the sights and places in Oban and the proprietor is a nice guy for a chat! No breakfast but some mornings you just want a muesli bar anyway!

This guesthouse has a superbe location and a very reasonable price. A very friendly welcome from the host. OK it doesn't do breakfast, but be truthful - how many of you have a full cooked breakfast first thing in the morning? We had a sea view and it was unbeatable. Room and bathroom were clean, although on the small side... More

Stayed here while on a London-Scotland-Ireland journey. The location couldn't be more perfect, situated right on the water with amazing views. The room was clean, comfortable, and had that great view of the water that can't be beat.

Very nice guest house, perfectly located in quiet area - few minutes way from the rush area in the city centre and close to Dunollie Castle. Wifi is provided. Rooms are quite clean. Fantastic sea view. Good pub is just next door. Very nice and friendly owner!
