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.

We recently had a 2 night stay at the Kathmore Guest House. It is located on one of the main roads in to Oban so easy to find and it is walkable to the town centre although there is a bus stop right outside as well which takes you to the station square if you prefer not to walk. There... More

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.

We arrived to be warmly welcomed by the host who immediately showed us to our room. She showed us round and asked what time we required breakfast. As we were due to catch a Ferry we did need an early one (7:30) which was no problem. The Guest House is close to the centre of Oban where there were a... More

Hello Folks, Thank you for your great review, really appreciate it. Thank you for filling in my maintenance form by reporting squeaky bed to me. If guests do not let us know these things we think everything is fine. No one mentioned the bed before you did but now I have a non squeaky new bed. Glad you slept OK... More

Plenty parking (for car loaded with bikes & roof box) & packed breakfast ready for us as we left at 6am. Morven was brilliant - her reaction to my daughter being sick on arrival (long... More

Easy-going hosts always ready to give advice. Rooms with some space, comfortable. Free parking on site, very helpful when you go with a car even a coach. Just some minutes to city center, ferries and Waterfront Fishouse restaurant. Very good breakfast.
