Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. Centre of town was a gentle stroll away. Great free WiFi connection too. I've stayed in quite a few guest houses over the years and this one is right up there with the best of them.

Along with my husband and 24 year old daughter we stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of July. The guest house is easy to find as it is on a main road out of Oban. We stayed in a family room at the front of the house. The room was spotlessly clean and the bathroom very modern. The... More

We stayed at this B$B a few nights ago and found it very convenient to the city centre, walking distance, clean and comfortable bed. Breakfast was nicely presented and the host made us very welcome. There is ample parking on site which was most important for us with our car. We would definitely stay there again and would recommend it.

We stayed one night at this friendly and nice B&B run by Morvan. 2 adults and a child (14) shared a large large doubble en suit with a sofa bed. Very nice breakfast. A small walk down to the very center of Oban and with a free parking place on the back of the house.

We had three rooms for one night while attending the Skerryvore Decade music event in Oban. Kathmore provides very good accommodation in a convenient location with private parking. The breakfast was also very good.

This was an Internet choice which turned out easy to find. Comfortable night and good breakfast. Friendly hostess and staff. Walk to shops if weather is OK. Popular stop for a rabbits tours also. As prices go one of the best that we stayed in over 10 day of traveling!

Stayed here over Skerryvore Decade weekend with 4 other couples. Morven could not have been more helpful and accommodating allowing us full use of the guest lounge for us and various other friends and relatives who stopped by. Rooms were very clean and had more extra touches than most hotels. Excellent breakfast and hopefully we will be back. Thoroughly recommend.
