I thought I had pretty well sworn off bed and breakfasts and thus avoid all-too-precious rooms and sharing breakfast tables with over-inquisitive guests, but a friend recommended Glenburnie House — and I'm so glad she did. Glenburnie's bright, cheerful and tastefully furnished rooms have a sense of grandeur without being fussy. The en-suite rooms are accented with lovely pieces of... More

Large room with great view of harbor, wonderful staff and breakfasts. The bed and breakfast was extremely comfortable and the town of Oban is very picturesque with ferry service to neighboring islands with historical sites.

Very friendly staff and interesting menus but on site management was an amateur. Vacillated between invisibility ( no front desk or information contact) and invasive nosiness. Could find him to report a problem. our room was 2nd floor front with great bay window view of harbour, others are not so lucky.

I'm so happy here in my comfy chair in the bay window of room #4. Endlessly interesting view of sea, sky and changing weather. Highly recommend this B&B for location, comfort, and friendly staff. Delicious duvet and pillows, loads of room and high ceiling add to this particular room's charm.
