Room on the smaller side but ideal for my needs; warm, cozy, spotlessly clean and all amenities working well. Soft, restful decorative colours in the room, nice lighting and Deer Uncle Albert above the stairs is a way cool dude :) Good water pressure, shower works really well and the ensuite although small is perfectly fine. Lovely comfortable bed (not... More

The room was excellent. The wee extras like the robes and the shampoos....the extra tea and coffee.....Very very clean. Host very understanding of the one problem I had.....other inconsiderate guests and reduced my bill appropriately. Family in the area...so will be back, cos those other guests won't be there.

Thank you for your review really do appreciate it when our guest take the time to do this for us. Must say I have been doing b&b for 30 years and the majority are considerate to others staying in the house. Occasional you get guests who just think of themselves and do not control their kids. It is annoying I... More

It was really a pitty to stay only one night at Kathmore Guest House. They have a garden and a loung in the back of the house we hadn't time to enjoy. They are welcoming and you feel among the best representatives of the kindness of highlanders. I forgot my watch in the room when we left and they sent... More

We spent our first night in Scotland in this great B&B. Kathmore Guesthouse was a perfect place for my family and I to spent the night. We were a group of twelve people but they didn't have any problem for that. The rooms were great, with everything neccessary and we felt very comfortable. Last but not least, I can say... More

My new wife and I stayed in the excellent kathmore b+b for a 3 night stay, being an amputee the opportunity for a ground floor room was a great benefit, food was of excellent quality and the host was very friendly and approachable, would definitely recommend

This place has been going strong for a while, and it's showing his age - yet that's not negative. The house is cozy, our room was small yet comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. We left in a bit of a hurry to catch the ferry, I would have loved to stay longer. The value for money is excellent. The hosts... More

Kathmore Guest House is a great place to stay and also a great base from which to explore Oban and surrounding area. Owners were more than accommodating and most helpful, the room was very comfortable and very clean and the breakfast was second to none. We were three adults and would return to Kathmore at any time in the future.... More

We stayed a night in Oban at this very centrally located B&B. its walking distance from the city centre. Largish rooms, comfortable. Bathroom was small – a large person would have major difficulty manoeuvring in it!! Also no space to put any toiletries. But the owner made up for its shortcoming by giving an excellent breakfast (provided by her well... More

This was my first visit to Oban as an adult and I managed to book at Kathmore at short notice at a reasonable price. The choice was good with a friendly homely welcome and a spacious twin room & bathroom for my teenage son and I. This isn't a slick or modern place, but it's not trying to be. What... More
