Recently had a wonderful stay at the beautiful Kilchrenan House. My wife and I stayed in Room 1 which we thoroughly enjoyed. It is a lovely room which instantly makes you relax and feel you are staying somewhere clean, friendly and peaceful. We were concerned to see another review saying the bed in this room was uncomfortable. I totally disagree... More

My wife and I have visited Oban several times and stayed in a couple different places, but the Kilchrenan House is by far our favorite! The location is excellent as it’s right on the water and within walking distance to town & the harbor. We were in Bedroom 9 on the top floor with a king size bed and an... More

We had booked this b& b for three nights but after seeing room 1, we decided to cut our stay short. This room is tiny, packed with over-sized, tired furniture , sagging armchairs and lumpy pillows. The wallpaper on the walls is guaranteed to give you nightmares , and the bed is not very comfortable. The bathroom is tiny; the... More

Hello Rae M, Hope you feeling good I tried emailing you in response to your review and have had no answer. I really did not want to respond giving your personal situation. I will try as discretely as possible to clear up a few of your comments. Your partner originally reserved a family room to the back of the house... More

Stayed 2 nights in Oban. Arrived late, but the owner was waiting for us to show us to the room. We stayed in room 1, ground floor. Good, spacious room, clean and comfortable and an AMAZING shower. The breakfast was great, Francis is amazing. It so lovely to have her cheerful voice, bright smile and positive energy in the morning.... More

Kilchrenan House in Oban was one of the highlights of my recent trip to Scotland. Frances and Colin are completely delightful and went above and beyond in everything they did. The room was light, bright, and beautiful. The view of the sea right outside the bedroom windows was spectacular. There was a view from the bed as well as the... More

My wife and I have used our stay at Kilchrenan House as the benchmark for which we judge all of the B'N'B's we stay. We recently had the opportunity to extend a work trip and revisit Oban and Kilchrenan House and I'm happy to report that it is still the top of the list! While the facility is beautiful and... More

I had stayed at Kilchrenan House three times prior with the previous owners. I decided to book again because it's such a beautiful house in a great location. I was not disappointed when I returned under the care of Frances and Colin for two nights in May. They are both friendly, helpful and accommodating, as are the rest of the... More

My partner and I have spent our May Day weekend in Oban for many years now but have been sorely disappointed with a certain B&B over the past 3 years. This was our first booking with Kilchrenan House and it will certainly not be our last! Lovely welcome and spotless room with sea view. Cannot fault either the owners or... More

We spent a very pleasant vacation here two years ago and did not hesitate to return.The welcome Colin and Frances give is second to none. Our room had a great view out on to the esplanade,and the full Scottish was very tasty and set us up for the rest of the day.

Experienced extremely poor service whilst booking a room. Owners extremely abrupt and not professional at all. Gave credit card details in good faith and the owner then decided to cancel the booking. Having phoned a couple of times to verify details (due to the website not corresponding with information provided by owners) I was shocked at the attitude on the... More
