Stayed at Ayres guesthouse for 5 nights with family and friends in September. All three ensuite rooms were spacious and very clean, with the one at the front of the guesthouse having breath-taking views of the nearby islands. We were welcomed by the owner, Brian, who was very helpful and informative during our stay and even went out of his... More

The location is perfect, in the centre of Oban on the sea. Unfortunately, our room didn't have a view on the sea. The breakfast was a good buffet. The room was big, clean, with good tea facilities and the bathroom was nice as well.

Friendly staff, clean rooms - all you need, close to city center and Oban distellery. Nice breakfast and easy to get away from by car. We only spend one night but I could easyly have spend more nights at this hotel.

A very nice stay in this guesthouse. The owners are friendly and helpful making you feel right at home. The breakfast was served buffet style - very nice. Parking in car park to one side and no problems. Thanks for a pleasant stay. Recommended.

A very good place in OBAN. Perfect location in front of the sea. Nice breakfeast. Clean and confortable rooms. Really short to walk in the city center and the Harbour. It was our first visit but we will come back again.

Ayres has all the basics and then some. It has a nice location in Oban, overlooking the harbor. Parking is very handy, almost next door...cost us one pound. Room size was fine, breakfast very nice, good owner.

Got a great twin room at a good price. Only a short walk from the centre and located on the sea front just of the main street. Cheap parking just around the corner with lots of parking spaces. Nice breakfast and very friendly manager.

Just got back from another lovely weekend in Oban and stayed at the Ayres again. Excellent as always with very friendly staff, clean rooms and a lovely breakfast. You simply cannot beat the views when having breakfast looking out over the bay watching the CalMac ferries come and go. Really short walk into town along the sea front and located... More
