We stayed in a twin room in the guesthouse which was situated down the corridor from the toilet, which is shared and smelt like a public loo (Not kidding). We decided on the first night we would have to find somewhere else to stay or buy strong bleach to clean the toilet and try to fight off the horrendous smell... More

We had a very pleasant stay in Glenview, granted we were on motorcycles, we found the room a bit small for our gear, but more our problem than the B&B's. It's a 5-7 min walk into Oban, and 2-3 minutes from supermarkets. The small touches here made the difference for us. For example, we weren't compelled to be up at... More

Off road parking and good location. We had two rooms - a twin and a double. The double smelt quite musty but both rooms were clean. We didn't see much of the hospitality from the owners that others have described which is a shame as there was a lot of communication before when booking, but I suppose for the price... More

This is a traditionally styled B&B with older decor and furnishings. The friendly reception and willingness to offer me an early breakfast tipped my score up to very good (4/5) a lower score would be unfair. I had a double room with a small en-suite shower and toilet. The decor and room furnishings are not modern but were clean and... More

We stayed here for one night and it was great. The rooms are small but are spotless with all the amenities including ensuite toilet/shower room, free wifi, free parking, tea, coffee and biscuits in room and a full cooked breakfast in the morning. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

We stayed for one night before catching an early ferry. Our room was clean and spacious, perfect for what we required. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating, we checked in early and were also provided with an early breakfast which was no trouble and very much appreciated by us. Only slight niggle was noisy guests being inconsiderate to others... More

Booked this as a late Easter break. Stated that it was dog friendly. On the Saturday night the owner's dog made a frenzied attack on my dog. Her dog is a re-homed 3 year old Staffie. She could not get a grip of it to pull him off and also injured her back. I managed to pull him off myself... More

Booked a last minute long weekend in Oban, Oban was really busy and most places were booked out but Glenview was one of the only B&B's that was available. Both my husband and I were pleasantly surprised at this lovely B&B and certainly will be back, so much so that we have already booked our next visit before we checked... More

Location here was a key. We were not in the middle of town but an easy walk away from the hustle. The staff was very friendly, and accommodations were nice and comfortable. Everything was clean and pleasant. Breakfast was huge and well-done with plenty of variety for those wanting something other than toast, eggs, sausage and bacon. Parking was off... More
