Me and my partner have just returned from a 3 night break at Kilchrenan House and have nothing negative to say whatsoever! Colin and Frances were lovely and are doing a wonderful job. Our room was clean and comfortable and we were only a short walk away from the town centre. Best thing I think was breakfast, which was fantastic!... More

We stayed in Room 6 for two nights in early April 2014. Our room had a beautiful sea view. The owners were wonderful and gave us excellent advice during our stay. The breakfast was the best we had while in Scotland. I highly recommend staying here while in Oban.

We stayed in room 6 in our recent stay in Oban. Very comfortable and tastefully decorated and with seaview. Excellent location. Owners very pleasant and the breakfast was wonderful. Would recommend highly and look forward to a future stay.

Kilchrenan House needs no introduction to frequent visitors of Oban. We ourselves have stayed before and loved it. But Room 5 brought our experiences here to a new level. Clever Colin showed me two other rooms - both excellently appointed - and said that another was available for only £10 more. He then showed me Room 5. Room 5 is... More

Kilchrenan House is beautifully situated slightly off the main part of Oban, which is a true benefit. Great water views, and comfortable beds, combined with hospitable Hosts and a lovely breakfast makes this a great place to stay for a day or longer.

We've never been to a nicer place - there are no words to describe it. The people are lovely, always have a helpful word for recommendations... Everything was more than perfect. The breakfast delicious and the house itself very lovely and cosy. Thank you so much for the best week ever!!!

We stayed here recently while visiting the local hospital. It was good to come back to a warm room, good shower and comfortable bed. However the outstanding feature of our stay was the kindness shown to us by Frances and Colin.....nothing seemed too much trouble for them and they helped us through a very difficult time. Many thanks to you... More

The staff were so pleasant and usefull. Breakfast was delicious, ask for porridge with cream and whisky: yummy yummy. The views are beautifull, you can see isles and the beach. The town is so close, in 5 minutes walking you have pubs, seafood, shops...

I will admit that our impressions of Kilchrenan were entirely colored by our staying in Room 5, with its huge bay-windows view of the Bay, Mull, Lismore, and Kerrera, and its beautifully appointed bathroom (whose claw-foot tub was a star of our visit, especially after a long hike). The hospitality was likewise noteworthy. It was a terrific stay, with even... More

From the warm welcome to the excellent breakfast, this is a great place to stay. It's a wonderful old building, beautifully decorated and full of surprises. It's in a perfect, quiet location too, and only a few steps from the town centre. Frances and Colin are so friendly and helpful that arriving at Kilchrenan House is like coming home! Highly... More
