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.

We stayed at the gramarvin whilst we were in oban sea kayaking and liked it so much we stayed an extra night! Oban is a beautiful place and gramarvin is a fantastic base for exploring. Mary is a great source of local knowledge, including where's good to eat and directions :) The room itself was lovely, tall windows, clean and... More

The Gramarvin Guest House was a wonderful place to stay in Oban. Mary was welcoming and kind and made sure we had everything we needed. The room was superbly appointed and was cleaned daily. One of the highlights was the breakfast served daily in the dining room. You had your choice of style of breakfast, as well as fresh fruit... More

I've stayed at Gramarvin before in 2011 and remembered it when planning our trip to the west coast of Scotland. And I wasn't disappointed: The rooms are spacious, clean and very cosy. The bathrooms are clean and modern. And the breakfast is amazing. As is the warm welcome you get. Additionally, the B&B is well located within just a few... More

I had spent a couple of my school years in Oban many years ago and always wanted to revisit my old haunts. Having driven up from Perthshire on a beautiful sunny day going through Glencoe and along by Loch Linnhe, we found the guest house easily with the directions given. Really good being able to park the car at back... More

Had a very enjoyable two nights here with Mary and Joe as excellent hosts. Room was spacious, spotless and comfortable. Nice breakfast and friendly service. Also a great location near everything in the town. Would recommend to everyone, couples and families. Will be back

From the booking process to accommodating our late check-in, Mary and Joe were great hosts. We had arrived rather late in Oban and were greeted with a warm welcome. As we were escorted to our room we were quite taken by the property; very friendly, warm, gorgeous town home. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of our room. The... More

My wife and I arrived via Train and spent 2 nights in Oban. Both mornings were relatively early (one to catch a ferry and the other to get the train back to Glasgow) but Mary was kind enough to provide breakfast in to-go bags for us which were waiting for us at the front door. The rooms were perfect. We... More

Having only driven in the UK for a few days, we were very good at getting lost. Just before arriving in Oban I called Gramarvin for directions and spoke with Mary's son, I believe, who directed us perfectly. It was great to have off-street parking for our rental car and we didn't need it the 2 days we spent in... More

When we arrived one saturday-afternoon, the B&B (as Gramarvin is actually signposted) looked like a - usually unpersonal - hotel. Nothing could have been further from the truth: the welcome was very heartily. We expected some problems with parking the car as Gramarvin is situated next to the city-centre of Oban but were directed to a private car-park at the... More
