This guesthouse is in a very nice house with excellent view over the harbour and Isles. It is clean and the beds are good. Unfortunately it has nor charme neither style - its ok but not more. A little bit like a "German Altersheim".

We stayed her for the night this month, the room was lovely and clean and included everything we needed. The room had stunning views of the sea and the hotel is ideally located for the town centre and the beach. Although breakfast is not included they provided fresh filter coffee, tea and cereal bars from 7.30, as well as menus... 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!
