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.

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
