Stayed for 3 nights with my mum- based on the reviews I'd read on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. The owner Mary is very welcoming. Booked a double room which was very spacious- nice ensuite too. Breakfast was lovely- good selection of continental and full Scottish breakfast very tasty. Would definitely recommend!

We travelled around the west coast and having stayed at a few bnbs, I found this one to be best of all. Very tastefully decorated rooms, spotlessly clean and amazing breakfast choices. Good selection of tea, coffee and hot chocolate (certainly hit the spot for me!). Mary was very helpful in offering suggestions for dinner and general know-how about Oban,... More

Mary at Gramarvin Guest House is an excellent hostess. Our room was very clean, and nicely appointed and equipped. The breakfast room is bright, airy, and modern, and Mary's breakfasts were ample and delicious. We truly enjoyed everything about Oban, and Mary's pleasant demeanor, enjoyable conversation, and good suggestions made it all the more pleasurable. Gramarvin Guest House offers free... More

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

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
