My daughter and I stayed in Oban at the Gramarvin Guest House in August 2015. It was clean and Mary was welcoming. One tip is that the addresses work differently than the states. Put in the postal code (equivalent of zip code) to get the area, then it is just searching. The breakfast was wonderful. The room was clean and... More

We had a lovely comfortable 2 night stay here & Mary was a friendly host. Our room was modern, clean & breakfast was very nice. We parked our car out the back & could walk to town for dinner & shopping. Oban is a great place to visit & we're glad we stayed at Gramarvin as the hosts are rightly... More

Beautiful Victoria House .Reception area was welcoming and Mary was waiting for us on arrival to show us our lovely Double room on the 1st floor .Overall impression is that this is a Guesthouse that is lovingly taken care of. Immaculately clean and fresh with lots of lovely little attentions to detail. Excellent location with only a short 10mins stroll... More

Lovely clean B&B with the best breakfast ever which set us up each day without the need for lunch. Mary was very friendly and helfpul during our 2 day stay. The B&B is in a very good position with just a short stroll to the main street and shops, ferry terminals etc. Very reasonable rates Stan & Dot - Tasmania

We stayed at the Gramarvin guesthouse for 3 nights. Our first impression on seeing our room was how clean and comfortable it looked and we were not disappointed. Mary was an excellent host and the breakfasts were good, the fresh strawberries, raspberries and blueberries were a great start to the day. We had bottles of mineral water in the room,... More

Thanks to this lovely, charming guest house I would happily visit Oban again. Mary made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived. All the personal touches made the difference, rooms so clean and fresh. Best breakfast I've had in ages (veggie sausages always help!) and lovely fresh coffee a rare treat :-)

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.
