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

All the windows are fitted with modern double glazing and at the height of the rush our on a Monday morning I hardly heard the traffic whilst having my breakfast in a room located at... 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

We stayed here for 2 nights on our way to Mull. We were made very welcome ,despite arriving during the evening. The location is a 10 minute walk from Oban centre where there is a good choice of restaurants/pubs for food. There is ample off road parking on site. The room was comfortable & clean with a good en-suite shower... More

We stayed 1 night with our 2 teenagers. We were staying in the family room and my teens slept on the sofa bed which was definitely not suitable for 2 teens (although they are quite slim and not really tall). Very nice breakfast, great service.

Hello Folks, Thank you for writing this review even although you were not totally happy. Unfortunately I cannot do anything about the traffic. Think if you are use to traffic you do not hear it as being that bad, if you live in a quiet area you hear it as being noisy. I have all my window double & triple... More
