A warm welcome from our host, Graeme, a view of the water, a large room with a sitting room, immaculately clean, fabulous breakfast, reasonable price, what's not to like? We stayed for 5 nights and had plenty to do. Abesnother four nights would only scratch the surface of isle-exploring and hill-walking. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

Back in 2009, my 2 sons and I stayed here for a few nights and I'd originally booked a triple room. On arriving, Graeme showed my sons to their room and said since they weren't full, he gave me an adjoining room at the front with the wonderful views! Breakfast was excellent and everyone was friendly and helpful. I will... More

Fantastic stay, great location, great views despit Friday's storm!! Spacious, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated room. Breakfast was cooked to order, excellent quality and service. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend and will definitely be returning. The best we have experienced in Oban by a mile.

Stayed here last week and found it to be a real gem of a B&B. We had a lovely room, very big and tastefully decorated. The bed was really comfy and we both had a great night's sleep. The breakfast was good (especially the fresh berries, museli and yoghurt) but some of the cooked items were a little burnt or... More

A great location on Oban bay just a short walk from the centre of town. Our room was clean and comfortable, although the standard size shower cubicle was a little tight for the larger frame that I have. Breakfast was excellent (especially the scrambled egg and smoked salmon); the hot options are all prepared to order. We originally booked for... More

It's difficult for a B&B to stand out but this did. Decor would fit in a design magazine. Location excellent with parking within the property as well as along the pier. Small things like folding the clothes really emphasise their attention to detail. Wifi free and fast. Highly recommended.

The owners and operators were extremely friendly. Room was clean, and very spacious. We had a room with a beautiful view of the water, a bay window with seating. The bathroom... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights (party of 5). One room was at the front of the building with a gorgeous sea view and the other room at the rear looking into a small garden. Both rooms were very clean and well serviced. (The rain forest shower in the rear room was probably the best shower I have had... More
