This is the worst B&B I have ever stayed in. The worst value for money by far. £63.00 per night with no breakfast included and without on-suite shower or lavatory. All the plugs were blown in the room so I could not charge my phone or camera batteries. When I politely went to speak to the manager on the first... More

Oban is such a beautiful little town and me and my friend recently had a lovely weekend away drawing in the port and surrounding area. Unfortunately our trip was let down by our awful experience of St Anne's guest house. I'm not one to normally complain but felt I had to write a review to save anyone else from ruining... More

Shower broke in en-suite room, alternative bathroom the preserve of other rooms, asked for help, manager not around. Checked-out unshowered but went back to speak to manager Elaine who wouldn't give any compensation let alone an apology. Just in case you need help to identify Elaine in case she is hiding away in the back or 'at other properties', she... More

This place is AWFUL. The shower in our room, an essential part of an overnight stay, would not work. After eventually tracking down a member of staff (who verified the shower was not working but did not offer us an alternative) we were given the owners number to ring to try and sort the issue. Following multiple attempts we finally... More

After reading a number of reviews we were rather looking forward to meeting Basil Fawlty. The reality was: no problems checking in or out, a clean warm room with all you need and a reasonable service from staff members. On the whole, certainly better than you'd expect for the cost. Parking not far away, it did cost a little money... More

Stayed at this guest house for a few days at the beginning of July. I found it very good value for money with parking only 50 meters away which is a plus. Good luck trying to find some where else in Oban for this rate and value for money. Plus a Irish bar with live music just around the corner.... More

What an enormous disappointment this Guest House is and the only thing we can say about it is that it was clean. They advertise a full Scottish Breakfast, which is anything but as we were offered only cereal. If you make the mistake of staying here, make sure to bring your own soap, shampoo, conditioner and TV remote control. If... More

Stayed here for one night with my partner, the owner has a few other business' in Oban! Not the friendliest person, certainly no phone manner and finds it acceptable to barge into your room in the morning to ask you to check out!! Anyway the room was ok, pretty small but clean enough! Woken up through the night by other... More

I write this review given the criteria that we were traveling through Oban for a night, and quite simply looking for somewhere friendly, clean, quiet to put our heads down. On arrival we phoned the number displayed and within 10 mins had the key and were out in Oban. Aileen (sp?) was very helpful. The room is on the small... More

On arrival we looked for somewhere just to pull up outside and there was nowhere, i had my Girlfriend, 2 kids and all my stuff in the car and i was forced to leave it well down the road to walk back to this place. On entering i shouted, rang the bell and no one came, the place was deserted.... More
