Dungallan Country House is a stunningly beautiful place with a stunningly beautiful view. Still very close to Oban. We arrived rather late. The proprietor had stayed up to greet us. Just had to ring a bell upon arrival and he came right out. He was a lovely, hospitable person. He was very kind in offering to serve breakfast later for... More

Before coming here, I was made wary about the owners' bad manners from the other comments on Tripadvisor. Well, they were extremely nice with us and they made sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. What makes the stay at Dungallan so great is the fact that the house dominates the bay of Oban and it offers an absolutely... More

Overnight stay booked at last minute. When we arrived there was no-one to greet us. We had to ring a bell and a young girl appeared, who showed us the bar and the guests lounge then took us to our room. She told us she was actually the cleaner. The room was freezing, radiator had not been put on. Our... More

Just stayed at the Dungallan Country House. It is a fab location and gorgeous house. Michael was a great host and our breakfast was one of the best we have ever had! Would thoroughly recommend. The room we stayed in had a sea view and was clean and very comfortable. It is a bit pricey but you get what you... More

This was such a wonderful place to stay. Our hosts were fantastic and welcoming. It has the very best view in Oban, and just a short way from City Center. Coming back from Dinner there are always people in the wonderful bar area. It's the only time the bar is open, after dinner. Michael pours a good drink, with over... More

We were four staying for two nights and all of us agree that this hotel is a prize. Michael and his staff did all possible to make us feel welcome. The beds are terrific, the bathrooms are spacious, the breakfasts are superb, and the location is excellent ... a short and easy walk to town and magnificent views.

This was my first visit to Oban and having walked around the 'bay' this is the place with the best view. Indeed I spent ages either in the car park or leaning out of the window (of Room no 6) with my camera. Arrival, at the appropriate time no problem. Room fine particularly the large bath., Breakfast great. Only negative... More

We had a pleasant time staying at this hotel and the room was very nice. However, we arrived at about 12.30pm after a VERY early flight to Glasgow and a 2.5 hour drive. When we arrived we were told we couldn't check in but when I asked if we could freshen up we were told that was ok. About 25... More

We had an 'interesting' stay at this establishment. Faulty Towers comes to mind. We arrived at 1pm and thought we may be able to drop our bags in order to catch the 2pm Ferry to Mull. In no uncertain terms we were told that was definitely not possible. Check in was 3pm. We were permitted to leave our car there.... More

Stayed the night on business. Arrived at 11pm and left at 9.30am. Owner greeted me and was very friendly. I would happily stay again for longer and hope to return with my partner. Breakfast was nice with plenty on offer. The views from the rooms where stunning.
