This is lovely establishment close to the centre of town, with parking spaces available which is a valuable commodity in this part of town. The landlady is very accommodating and will try to meet your requests such as an extra key or a slight change to the breakfast menu to suit a diet. The house is very well appointed and... More

My partner and I wanted a nice west coast get away to celebrate her birthday and we were both very happy with our choice in B&B. We were greeted with a very friendly welcome and a quick run through for breakfast and coming and going from the house. We stayed in double bedroom 1, a great size with plenty storage... More

I recently stayed at Gramarvin with my fiance and we really enjoyed our stay. The whole house is cozy and comfortable and Mary is an impeccable host. Checking in before noon wasn't a problem and she ensured that we were comfortable during our stay. She's always super friendly and offered us restaurant suggestions as well.

Lovely and clean property. Everything ou would need.Minutes away from centre of Oban and the ferries etc. great base for seeing the Highlands and Islands. Nice owner who was interested but let us get on with our own thing. Great breakfast. Only downside was that our room was on the very top floor, up 4 flights of stairs which made... More

Excellent guesthouse, easy to book by email and then a warm welcome on arrival. Bed and room outstanding, the breakfast superb and set us up for the day. The location is excellent on a quiet one way street with easy walking to the town centre, pubs and restaurants. Very good to have off street parking available. We would certainly return... More

Gramarvin Guest House is newly decorated, attractive and very comfortable. Breakfast was well prepared and served in a bright but cozy breakfast room. The Guest House is just a few short blocks from the centre of Oban, so walking access to downtown as well as the bus, train and ferry services is very good, yet it is far enough away... More

The house and the room was very nice and clean. The breakfast, especially the fruits were very tasty. We received a warm welcome and some good advice on Oban. We also went on an island excursion and although breakfast normally gets served at 8.30 we could get one for 8.00 o'clock.

Newly refurbished bathroom and excellent facilities, as always, make this possibly the best B&B in Oban. Service is excellent and made to feel right at home. Not my first visit and certainly not my last! Would recommend this B&B to anyone

We loved Oban, and while this guest house doesn't have a sea view, it's in a great location. Our room was very pretty and while it was not ensuite, we had exclusive use of a bathroom right across the hall. The breakfast was delicious.
