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! Unfortunately we could stay one day only, but this excellent B&B can be recommanded for a wonderful start into many things to do. Oban is an interesting town and... More

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.

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.
