We had a front room facing the water with a fabulous view. I cannot fault this guest house - 5 star. Oustanding breakfasts, quality furnishings and linen. Spacious rooms, off street parking and only a short walk to town. Highly recommend.

This is far more classy hotel than bog standard or even superior B&B. The room (4 facing the bay) is spacious, light and well appointed. There was even a teddy bear on the bed! The shower room is very well lit (not always the case) and breakfast is in a class of its own. There were lovely cooked dishes, beautifully... More

This grand old home right on the Esplanade facing the sea is seductive. The minute you step over the threshold, you know you are home. From the ground floor sitting room/lounge to the breakfast room, comfort is the operative word. The breakfast is slammin' and you couldn't want for more. Graeme Strachan, owner, is one of the nicest, most conscientious... More

A grand old building on the Esplande and facing the sea makes this a special experience. Graham, the owner and his family do back flips to ensure that nothing is wanting from his guests. His daughter is a chip of the block and the serving staff for breakfast were excellent. The breakfast itself had the freshest of fruit and all... More

My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights and loved the location, the view, the spacious room and the high quality breakfast with lots of fresh berries and eggs whichever way you like. The wifi on the 3rd floor is very poor.

Enjoyed yet another stay at Glenburnie Bed & Breakfast. Welcoming and helpful host. Large double room spotlessly clean. Great breakfasts with options, and friendly service. Excellent location on sea front in Oban.

We spent 2 nights in a deluxe sea view room. It included a sitting room with TV, chairs and a desk, and a beautiful view of the harbor; and a bedroom with en-suite and TV. Everything was lovely and well cared for at this house. There is a pleasant sitting room overlooking the parking lot and harbor for relaxing. We... More

...we didn't want to leave! The accommodations were lovely: each room had charm and personality -- this was fitting, as this describes the staff as well. I hope we'll return to Oban some day (and I hope it's soon!), and we'll make this our temporary home once again.

Lovely B and B but the people there made it. We had to leave early and a packed breakfast was made, freezer blocks frozen- they were just very helpful. Super location on sea front and easy walk into town. Thank you.

Me and my husband went for a 3 night stay at Glenburnie house for the first time. First of all it was all arranged via email and done very efficiently. Second of all the lady at reception that greeted us was wonderfully polite and friendly. She explained to us where everything was, when breakfast was served and how she would... More
