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

Great location. Parking tight, but as stated in another review, they make it work! So near the town centre most people didn't use their car once there. Many restaurants and amenities very close by. Mary made us very welcome and provided a great breakfast. Very comfortable and delightfully furnished room. Stayed two nights. Key to the front door so able... More

We stayed at this house for two nights. The house is centrally located. The harbor and restaurants/shops are just minutes away on foot. Our rooms were clean and adequate. The hostess Mary was very hospitable making us feel welcome. Her breakfast was delicious and hearty. Initially I was concerned about how I would get along with the host during our... More

Had two rooms on top floor. Good size and lovely décor in both, with toiletries in the bath. Downtown is around the corner. Very nice owners. Parking is tight, but they make it work. We were so glad we stayed here two nights. Breakfast was good and it was so easy to get to town and the ferry. We will... More

Central location with just a short walk to the ferry terminal or the Oban Distillery. The room and en suite were modern and clean. The hot breakfast was well portioned and a good take-away breakfast was provided one day so we could catch an early ferry.

Situated not far from the harbour and town centre, Gramarvin is ideally situated for local amenities. Pay special attention to the directions to the car park at the rear of the property. It is a lovely B&B with nicely appointed rooms, the two we stayed in (with another couple) had ensuite facilities. The rooms were very clean and the beds... More

Very quiet room with decent curtains so you can sleep through the bright Scottisch nights! Breakfast was very well catered and the room was very clean. Along with the kindness of the hostess this makes it a very nice B&B.
