Incredible view of the harbor, close to downtown in one direction, and Dunollie Castle in the other. Beautiful room, with an amazing bathroom, the fanciest on our entire trip. Excellent breakfasts, and very helpful owners, with everything from dinner reservations to ferry schedules. We stayed three nights and loved it.

My two friends and I loved every minute of our 2 day stay in Oban, in no small part due to our warm and welcoming hosts. Our room was very nice, and quite large enough for the 3 of us. We slept VERY well. This B&B is located in an absolutely perfect spot. The sea is directly across the road... More

I stayed there with my brother (2 singles) and my parents (77/yr) in late September. We had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. The hosts were lovely and very accommodating. Breakfast was great and rooms very clean. Only a short walk to the downtown made this a very convenient spot to stay. Would definitely recommend.

Long drive from Prestwick Airport - arrived to Kilchrenan House in Oban and met with our host Colin Davren. He greeted us with a "pour" of scotch or whiskey that he had sitting out for the guests. We were taken to our rooms (there were 3 couples in our group) and each one was nicer than the next. Each one... More

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
