I really cannot fault anything about the B&B. Morven and Keith are immensely welcoming and go that extra mile to make sure guests are comfortable and can make the most of their time in Oban. Rooms are spotless, tea, coffee and biscuits everyday and a little extra that helped with the very high temperatures was a fan in the room.... More

Good value. Room was clean and comfortable. Short walk into town with off-street parking. Owner was very friendly, and provided a nice packed breakfast (we were booked on the early ferry the next morning).

We had a really lovely stay here prior to an Outer Hebrides tour in July 2014. Our twin room was comfortable, with a lovely bathroom and nice facilities. Breakfast was wholesome and very tasty and the welcome we received was very friendly. An excellent stay and highly recommended for travellers of all sorts.

We where given a very warm welcome by Morag. it was an easy walk from Oban railway station. The breakfasts were great with fresh fruit on the menu which does seem in short supply in some parts of Scotland.

We were made to feel right at home by Morag, the landlady. Breakfast was delicious and the service was always with a smile, and nothing was too much trouble. Off-street parking was easily accessible and safe and it was only a short stroll from town and the ferry terminal. The beds (we stayed there twice in two different rooms) were... More

Although it seems far away from town the first time, Kathmore is only 8 minutes walk from the central bay area and restaurants. The service and breakfast was very good. The WIFI was the best we had in all of Scotland. There is a guest lounge and deck out back and parking if you were driving. Only 5 minutes from... More

Hello there, Thank you so much for taking the time to write this great review.
