Colin and Frances and the staff at Kilchrenan House are so lovely. We had such a great stay on a Monday evening for our first stop on a honeymoon trip around Scotland. We were very warmly welcomed when we arrived and given breakfast information and menus for local restaurants and bars as we wished to explore the local town. The... More

The breakfast was perfect here along with the ocean view. Our room was spacious, quiet and with a great view. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It was a short 5 minute walk to town and very close to the ferry terminal. Lots of different shops and restaurants near by.

Thanks to recommendations from Trip Advisor, we reserved one of the front rooms facing the ocean and really enjoyed just sitting on the couch in the bay window, taking in the view. Very relaxing! It’s about a mile walk into the center of town, a convenient location to make our connections with the tours we had booked as well as... More

Warm welcome from Colin, who explained everything and showed us to our room. We had Room 9 which had everything you could need, a lovely bathroom and stunning views from the bedroom and the bathroom. Everything was spotless. Really enjoyed sitting looking out of the window at the bay. Room was made up every morning, tea and coffee tray was... More

We were only in Oban for one night, but we felt very fortunate to have found Kilchrenan House. It's in a great location, and the owners are charming and hospitable! I would have enjoyed staying a bit longer. We had booked a room online from the United States and had been told that a "family room" was all that was... More

We loved staying in kilchrenan house. Our lovely spacious room looked out over Oban bay to the island of Kerrera. A very warm welcome awaited us from Frances and Colin and the breakfast was excellent. The House is kept immaculately clean and nothing is too much trouble if you need anything.

We spent two nights here and greatly appreciated the warmth of the welcome and the unfailing attentiveness of Frances, even at a time when she and Colin were also dealing with a very sensitive family situation. The house is very conveniently placed and fronts a superb sea view. Because of the popularity of the guesthouse we had a side room... More

We were lucky to book a room about 2 weeks in advance. So we took what we could get. It is located about a 15 minute walk into the town centre.Our room was first up the stairs to the right. Our only view was the neighbour's back yard. Our en-suite was up a small flight of steps. OK when it... More

Spent one night here and Colin gave us a lovely warm welcome along with a 'wee dram' ! Our room was really very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Colin gave us lots of info on places to see and where to dine. Would love to return
