Very nice, clean & comfortable B&B located just a short walk from main strip of Oban. Surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants. The lady running the B&B was very welcoming and easy to talk to. Breakfast was great and she couldn't do enough for you whilst being very polite in doing so. I would recommend this place and would... More

We spent Easter weekend at the Gramarvin guesthouse- the owner Mary was absolutely lovely, the room was clean, stylish and spacious, the mattress was supremely comfortable, and the breakfasts were smashing. It's a short stroll to the harbour and "town centre" but it's on a quiet street. I dare you to find fault with this lovely place.

Spent 3 nights at the Gramarvin. Lovely, quiet location but really close to town, harbour and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Spotlessly clean, breakfast excellent. Friendly and welcoming hosts. A real pleasure to stay there. Would highly recommend.

We have been visiting Oban for a number of years and have frequented hotels and guest houses during that time. The best to date was the Gramarvin...from the minute we arrived Mary our host was welcoming, informative and happy to help out with top tips of restaurants to try and places to go. In addition the bed we had was... More

Very welcoming, clean B&B in Oban, walking distance from restaurants, shops & ferries. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice and fresh fruit / continental options as well as the cooked options. The breakfast room is lovely and bright, a great way to start the day. Our room was tastefully decorated and spacious. Excellent shower. The curtains were a bit odd... More

Gramarvin is a good value guest house, a few minutes walk to the harbour, with a welcoming host Mary, and spotlessly clean rooms. The whole place has been recently redecorated from top to bottom, it's absolutely immaculate. Free mini-eggs in the room too, but I expect that's an Easter-only thing. Service was very good - when we had a problem... More

Used Oban as a base for visiting surrounding areas and Mull. Stayed at Gramarvin for 3 nights. Excellent location, quiet but easy to access the town, 10 minute walk to the Calmac pier. Excellent sized double room. Immaculately clean with a very comfortable bed. Very modern ensuite. Very friendly, professional, welcoming host. Superb breakfasts! Would definitely recommend

Off street parking is located to the rear of the magnificently presented three hundred year old Guest House. The husband and wife team are helpful, welcoming and professional. The rooms have quality appointments and the bed is beautifully comfortable. Gramarvin Guest House is within walking distance to all the sights of the town and the port.
