We stayed 2 nights here...the weather was cold and rainy but we curled up in our sea view room and drank hot chocolate! It was a large room with very nice and comfortable furnishings. The proprietor was wonderful and very accommodating. Breakfast was wonderful. Cant say enough great things about this place.

This place has it all- a view of the harbor across the street, on-site parking, a beautiful facility that is obviously cared for by the owner, largish rooms, modern bathrooms, and a full English breakfast that was well-prepared and extremely tasty. Graeme and his staff were also wonderful. The evening we arrived, Graeme got on the phone and had made... More

This was one of the two most comfortable rooms we had during our two week stay in Scotland. We were in the front of the house, on the top floor, and had a beautiful view of the Oban harbor. The bathroom and shower were a comfortable size and very functional. The bed was comfy and the room was spacious and... More

This was the first visit to Oban for us (two couples). We had Rooms 3 and 5, and the rooms were equally lovely - large windows overlooking the water, elegantly furnished (beautiful bathroom fixtures, too!), comfy beds, every amenity we needed. Graeme went out of his way to be accommodating and helpful, offering to make reservations for us for dinner,... More

I have just returned home from a birthday trip to Oban for my mother. I am so happy I chose the Glenburnie. Graeme and his staff were excellent hosts, polite, friendly and would do anything to accommodate your stay. We stayed in room 14 and whilst there was no sea view, it was made up with the cleanliness, lovely decor... More

Stayed in Glenburnie for four days in June. Graeme and all his team were excellent hosts. Spacious room with excellent view over the harbour. We stayed in Room 9 with a lovely bay window looking out over the harbour. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice.

Excellent location in Oban, excellent service, excellent breakfast and excellent room. Staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Our room (9) to our mind had the best view of anywhere we have ever stayed. We sat and had a bottle of wine sitting in the window watching the sun set, perfect. Next time we are up this way we...

We stayed at Glenburnie House on a recent vacation to Oban,Scotland. This B&B is impressive in every way! The location is primo, situated right on the harbor road. What an incredible view! We had two rooms with two women in each. The rooms are absolutely beautifully decorated, reasonably-priced, spacious, modern, and comfortable. The beds, pillows, and water pressure are wonderful....

Spent three nights in Oban with my Mum. We were looking for a peaceful, calm break and that's what we got. The guest house was spotless, elegant, and quiet. The breakfasts were lovely, served by friendly charming staff. Room service was efficient and discreet. We had a beautiful sea view and spent the evenings after busy days out just watching... More

We stayed at the Glenburnie last week where the welcome was warm, the comfortable room had the most amazing views and the breakfast was hearty - the raspberry jam homemade and vert tasty. Glad we stayed.
