Wonderful Victorian home decorated in a style to match. Great views of the harbour and just a 5 minute walk to downtown. Off street parking along a busy esplanade is a great bonus feature. Colin and his staff prepare and serve a wonderful breakfast. Highly recommend this guest house to all who stop in Oban.

Stayed 3 nights at this B and B and loved every minute - Frances and Colin are so welcoming and make you feel at home in their home! Even before we got there, Colin was able to advise us as to a different route as the A85 was closed due to an accident - we phoned to let them know... More

Room 15 had a great view of the bay and passing ships. Pretty short stroll into town. However, be aware that it is one of the 2 rooms on small entry parlor, and right next to dining room, so a bit noisy early & evenings, depending on the politeness of other guests. Good off street parking for small cars. We... More

We spent a very comfortable night at this lovely b & b. Good room with everything we needed and really great breakfast, plus hosts were extremely helpful when our ferry was delayed for several hours. Thank you.

We stayed one night in room 5 and were very impressed. The location on the esplanade is excellent - great views but also quiet. Our room (5) was on a corner so we had great sea views in 2 directions. The whole place is clearly organised to get a large number of people housed and fed well efficiently, so you... More

This was our 3rd stay at Kilchrenan House and the combination of great weather and a room with a breathtaking view made it another memorable experience. The staff are friendly and attentive and take a real interest in your stay. The breakfast choice and quality is first class and guests openly share their feedback. Room 5 provides a panoramic view...

We had a three night stay at this B&B on the Esplanade at Oban. We occupied rooms 4 and 5. Room 5 has a bay window with sea views and a soaking tub in the bathroom. Room 4 has twin beds, and a sea view. Both rooms were clean and well appointed. The beds were comfortable. There is free, but... More

This was our second visit which was long overdue. We booked the weekend before and were lucky to get a room. We were on the ground floor. The room was a double and was sufficient for our needs. The breakfast at Kilchrenan is brilliant, lots of choices and pleasant staff. Colin and Frances are the perfect hosts, always pass the... More

We stayed in a King double on the second floor with views over the Sound of Kerrera. The room was spacious with an effective, en suite, shower over bath. Heating came on early morning & in the evening (Scottish summer). The welcome was very pleasant with a glass of sherry or whisky on offer. You can also have a whisky... More

Beds were ok. Rooms were a little simple. Bathrooms in room were not set up very well and they were not completely clean. Floors in house creak when walked on. Nice view of the harbor. Hospitable staff. Breakfast was ok. Had some tolrouble with the locks when originally arrived.

Thank you for your review Andrew M I have emailed you regarding this for further clarification and to date have had no reply. When you arrived my husband was visiting his dying father and I explained that the previous guest had broken the lock and as soon as my husband came home the lock would be repaired, we also discounted...
