Stayed here twice now, very comfortable and reasonably priced bedroom. Owners were very hospitable and i loved the smell of the fresh linen on the bed and the towels. Would certainly stay here again. It also has its own car park which is very much needed and to which a lot of B&B's in Oban do not appear to have.

We spent a most relaxing time here. The rooms were clean and comfortable if a little small. The breakfasts were first class. Plenty variety. Full cooked brekie. Cereal yoghurts fresh fruit. Felt welcome. Nothing to much trouble. Will be back.

PROS: - Walking distance to downtown - Free parking - Very Friendly owner who seems to do everything herself. She’s a very hard worker...always on the move. She manages 10 rooms. - Room was airy and light from the 2 windows - It is a budget B&B. We just needed a simple place to crash after a full day of... More

This is an intown location with free parking. We loved the location. We were able to park our car at the guest house and walk to downtown Oban to see the sighs, exchange money, get groceries, shop, go to a small museum and visit some pubs and restaurants. Our hostess was friendly and made our tasty breakfast to order. While... More

We were there for one night only. The room was small but adequate for one night quite clean. Breakfast was nice. Didn't like the frontage which was on a very busy road with no footpath. Not a bad walk into town. We liked Oban very much.

We booked this accommodation at short notice and in order to rest before catching a very early ferry. The location of the house is convenient to reach Oban centre both by foot and by car. The location is quiet in terms of traffic. We were welcomed by the lady of the house who showed us to our room and very... More

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
