We were glad we took advice from Tripadvisor and reserved a room ahead, instead of deciding to take our chances upon arrival. Oban, with its steep, twisty, one-way streets, is not easy to navigate. Our choice of Failte was a good one, although our late booking meant that we didn’t have one of the rooms in the front with amazing... More

Trish gave us a wonderful welcome and made us feel at home immediately. We were lucky to get room 3 with views over Oban harbour and out to the Isle of Mull. The room is not the largest - and the en-suite certainly isn't - but both have everything you need in a bedroom and bathroom and it is all... More

We have been to Oban many times in the past. On our last visit we stumbled upon the Failte B&B. we enjoyed the gracious hospitality of Trish and her husband that we wanted to stay there again this time too. We were not disappointed. We had a lovely stay. Our room was in the front of the house overlooking the... More

Trish welcomed us warmly, even though we were a few hours early. It was the first day of our trip, and our trans-Atlantic flight left us in need of a nap. The wonderful, comfortable room was quick remedy to that problem. Trish is very friendly and charming, and her recommendations and directions are top-notch. Mike is an excellent cook, and... More

The place had opened fairly recently when we visited but already it was on top of things, our hosts were charming and very hospitable. The room was lovely, clean and cosy. The breakfast was good too. We happily walked up to the place from the train station in about 10 minutes, but the hill is quite steep.

We stayed at Failte for two nights after leaving Glasgow, Trish was exceptionally friendly and helpful - when she recommends a restaurant make sure you heed her advice, both of them were superb. In fact one thing we noticed after a twenty year absence form Scotland was the tremendous improvement in the quality of accommodation and food. She even provides... More

We had a wonderful stay at Failte B&B. We had a suite in the front of the house with a stunning view. Mike cooked a wonderful breakfast, including many delicious homemade jams.

This was this trip's first B&B outside of Edinburgh and we were very pleased. We were able to park right on the street outside, and our room had a lovely view of Oban harbor.

Quiet and well situated for the ferry. Warm welcome and everything one could expect in terms of the room and facilities. As we were catching an early ferry in the morning we were offered a room-only rate - very reasonable. Could not have asked for more.
