A great B&B overlooking Oban, Trish and Mike are warm, welcoming and very accommodating. I stayed here for 2 nights, the room was more than adequate for myself with an en suite, tea & coffee making facilities and TV. I even had a small fridge. There's a good choice for breakfast and you won't leave on an empty stomach. I... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at Failte. The house has amazing views over to Mull. Everything was absolutely spotless and the owners could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was five-star, with plenty of choices on the menu.

We very much enjoyed our 1-night stay in Oban at the Failte B&B. The house itself is in a great location with beautiful views. We had two rooms--my husband and I in the room with the water view and my two teenage children in a room across the hall with a yard view. Both rooms were very comfortable and well-appointed....

A " Compact and Bijou" establishment, very comfortable and well appointed room, very clean and good value for money. Breakfast was more than adequate and very tasty. The Stornoway Black Pudding on the plate was like no Black Pudding I have ever tasted, - it was delicious. I was tempted to lick the plate when I had finished, - but... More

Stayed at Failte B&B on a stopover on the way to Islay. The B&B is placed on the cliffs in Oban and therefor has a great view over the bay. Our room had a big window facing the bay with two chairs so that we could sit there and enjoy the view. The breakfast was fresh cooked, and plentyfull -... More

Booked into this B&B after struggling to find anyone who could accommodate a single traveller and I am so glad I did After a stiff uphill walk, the door opened and I was warmly welcomed by Mike, the owner and had my bags taken off me immediately and shown up to my room.

My husband and I stayed a night here on our way north earlier this month and received a very friendly welcome. We agree with the other reviewers about the view and the clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was also delicious. The only down side was the very heavy rain while we were looking for a place to eat. We found... More

We stated in this B&B for just one night (June 13, 2014) prior to our ferry ride to the Isle of Mull but it was long enough to appreciate this clean well appointed room that overlooked the harbor. It was a bit of a chore hiking up the hill with our wheelies but worth it for the ambiance and the... More

This was the second time we visited Failte and of course we chose the room with the excellent view. Everything was clean and tidy and the breakfast is a real highlight!

Failte, as the name suggests, is a lovely place to stay. The proprietress is helpful and friendly and she maintains the appealing rooms to a high standard. You'll find parking is well managed and that early leaving times can be negotiated. The view from a front room is stunning.
