We arrived late in the evening and were greeted and helped to our room by a very friendly gentleman. The room was huge Plenty of room for all three of us. It was clean and the beds comfortable. It appears to be more of a hotel then a B&B. Breakfast was served to many and took longer than expected. Also... More

Even though we arrived ahead of checking in time, we were kindly ushered to our room situated above the dining-room. The spacious, bright room overlooking the bay is nicely and comfortably decorated . The en -suite bathroom was gleaming and pristine. The hallways boast elegant wallpaper and plush carpeting. White orchids are dotted all over the chest of drawers in... More

We stayed 3 nights last week and agree with everything that other reviewers have said. This is a fantastic B&B. Sadly we had to move to another hotel for our last 2 nights in Oban as Graeme was hosting a family party, but despite the fact that he was going to be out all day, since it was pouring with... More

We stayed 2 nights, and loved this BB! The room had wonderful views over the bay, and it was wonderful to sit and watch the world go by on a very rainy afternoon. The room has everything we needed, it was an easy stroll into the town for restaurants and bars, and only 5 minute drive to the ferry. Graeme... More

We stayed at Glenburnie House en route to Mull and it exceeded all our expectations. Graham Strachan was a very welcoming host to his spacious, spotlessly clean B&B, conveniently located on the Esplanade beyond the Cathedral. An easy walk back into town for evening meals and 5 minutes from the Ferry. Our bedroom was quiet, roomy, comfortable, and well appointed... More

I tend to judge a B&B by the attitude of the owner, and whether they put their guests first. Graeme comes out with the highest rating on that score. When we arrived, he noted a View room was available, and asked if we would we like that room instead of the non-View room we had booked without any increased price.... More

I have just spent a wonderful weekend in Oban and had the pleasure of staying in this fabulous guest house. I can't fault a single thing. Our rooms were twin rooms, beautifully decorated and very spacious with the added bonus of a couch, ideal for a rest after being out & about during the day. Breakfast both days were delicious...

Graeme Strachan is the most welcoming host and makes you feel immediately at home. A very well professionally managed B&B with easy access to Oban's ferry facilities to Isle of Mull, Iona and beyond. Good sized rooms, all very clean and tidy, with ensuite bathrooms. Great breakfast to start the day. A lot of repeat guests used to Graeme's very... More

Seafront location with lovely view of the bay and ferries from the spacious room. Splendid breakfast. Nice little guest lounge. Very friendly and helpful staff. Pleasant walk along the front into the main part of town. Highly recommended.

Dear Crisibaja Thank you so much for your review for the Glenburnie team. We are so happy to read that you had a super stay. It is super that you had the opportunity to take advantage of Glenburnie's guests' sitting room as many guests forget that we have this area where they can relax and enjoy views out over Oban...
