Great location easy to get to from the main road and with parking. Wonderful view of the harbor and area, and just a few minutes walk to everything in town. Thoughtful touches like a welcome drink, guide to the area in the rooms, and collection of local restaurant menus to look over. Delicious breakfast and helpful staff.

Fantastic views from room 6, very clean and very comfortable bed and Proper king size not 2 singles pushed together. Breakfast very good. Colin & Francis were friendly hosts & nothing too much trouble. Hotel is perfectly situated, only short walk to shops, pubs etc. would definately stay here again.

Stayed here last year and really enjoyed ourselves. Booked again for our anniversary last weekend and booked the same room with a nice sea view. Nice welcome on arrival and loved the bubbly in our room ( thanks Frances and Colin). Our room was well furnished, spotlessly clean and warm. Ensuite was nice too. Breakfast was varied and nice with... More

We loved how clean and well maintained was our room. The hotel is perfectly placed, just on the bank of the bay and has a comfortable and easily accessible parking. A short, relaxing walk along the shore from the hotel to the center of Oban was a nice addition to our stay. Also the owners were a very pleasant couple.... More

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.

We were ready for a rest and a cosy spot. Room 9 is the attic, spacious very comfortable and the views are incredible. Breakfast was delicious and home cooking. The owners are very friendly and helpful.

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
