The hosts were welcoming, the place has character being an old 1800's house converted. It is comfortable & quite close to centre, about 10 minutes walk. Breakfast was good, you choose the night before. Our shower did not seem to have much hot water, didn't ask the hosts about this.

We've stayed at Kilchrenan twice now; first time was one night on business. We were so impressed, the second stay was for our wedding when we brought along family and friends. Couldn't have asked for a better location, a nicer house, or more kind hosts. The incredibly tasty breakfasts help, too. When Frances discovered we were there for our wedding... More

Colin and Frances run a superb B&B . They welcomed us as friends and gave us advice on where to have dinner and where to stay the next day on our drive to Loch Lomond . Both venues were excellent . Our rooms were spotless with superb views . We have stayed in many B&Bs and we have only praise... More

We stayed in Kilchrenan House for one night having enjoyed our previous visits. We arrived earlier than planned from the Mull ferry and Frances very kindly allowed us to put our luggage in our room and to leave our car in the car park. There is a notice on the door for people who do arrive before the check in... More

What a beautiful Guest House. The location is stunning and the views from our room and the breakfast room were simply stunning. On arrival in the car park, you cant fail to be impressed by this beautiful building. And once inside...a truly delightful house to stay in. The reception area is beautifully decorated and welcoming. Our hosts, Colin and Frances,... More

My family and I stayed in Kilchrenan House for 3 nights in July whilst visiting my sister who was studying in Oban. We had such a great stay that me and my boyfriend came back in September. I have looked in quite a few hotels along the front and this appears to be the best. Lovely location on the seafront... More

We were looking forward to staying in this beautifully located house with a parking lot in a place we loved called Oban. My husband had booked it by phone by providing our credit card number and 3 digit safety code on the back as well as our cell phone number. We were in Oban so went to see if they... More

My wife and I had a most enjoyable stay over the weekend in room 4. Great facilities nice and clean and Frances and Colin are both friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was brilliant, freshly cooked each morning and quality produce. Book a room with a view to the front you wont be disappointed.
