Our room was a small but cosy room on the first floor of the B&B. Very nicely done up the rooms also came equipped with things such as bathrobes which I thought was great cause we usually only get these at hotels these days and not in a B&B as such. The bathrooms are smart and clean. The beverages tray... More

The Kathmore is a level 5 to 10 minute walk from the central train station and town centre. We were greeted by Morven who explained all the details regarding breakfast, door keys, and the like. We had a room with a double bed at the front of the home. It was very quiet and was well appointed with en-suite washroom... More

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.

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.
