This was our second stay at Kilchrenan House. The booking was handled through emails which was really nice since we are in the USA. The proprietors worked with us to accommodate our grown up children and were so helpful and welcoming when we arrived. The breakfasts are the same each morning but a lot of choices and cooked to order.... More

We arrived to a fantastic welcome from both Colin and Francis, we were offered a compilimentry whiskey / sherry before Francis showed us to our bedroom. Our room was lovely and spotless loved all the wee extra touches and there was every kind of toiletries you could have needed if you had forgotten anything. The view was amazing right over... More

This BnB is in a great location over looking the water, and short and pleasant stroll following the water into town. After eating in town we walked past the house and found a nice park bench where we were able to sit and watch the sun set over the water. When we arrived there was no space in the car... More

KILCHRENANHSE, Manager at Kilchrenan House, responded to this review

Hello the Gibbonses, Thank you for taking the time to review Kilchrenan House although somewhat surprised by it … Just to address the issue around the parking and Colin’s attitude. You quite rightly pointed out that someone had parked crookedly and prevented you from parking. So to make matters worse you decide to park your car over the white line... More

We were greeted on arrival by the friendly owners who offered us a complimentary Sherry or Whiskey will checking in and filling out our breakfast choices for the... More

Super Bed and Breakfast in Oban! The staff is very friendly: among other things, you get a free glass of whisky to welcome you. In addition, you can chose the breakfast you want to have a day in advance and the quality of the food served is great. Finally, the localization is perfect, near the city center of Oban with...

I had intended Oban to to serve as a base for exploring nearby islands. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate, as gale force winds grounded the ferries and excursion boats. Luckily, Kilchrenan House proved to be a comfortable place to wait out the weather. It was an easy walk along the Esplanade to the city centre when the wind did... More

We booked two nights at Kilchrenan House based on other TA reviews and were not disappointed. From the friendly welcome from Colin, the welcome drink and the beautiful and characterful room, everything has been just perfect. We are staying in room 1 which is on the ground floor but with a stunning view of the sea and the island of... More

This was my first visit to Oban and I will definitely be back to stay at the Kilchrenan House. We received a very warm welcome and great recommendations for places to eat. It was a also reasonably priced for how close it was to restaurants and pubs, not to mention the lovely view and excellent breakfast! The whiskey/sherry upon arrival... More
