My friends and I stays for 2 wonderful nights at Glenburnie House. The owner Graeme was very welcoming and accommodating, even booking us a restaurant for dinner on the first night. The views were amazing from one of our rooms, and though my single room did not have the same views it was very roomy with 2 single beds, lounge,... More

Stayed 2 nights in room 9 and can't say enough what a wonderful place this is. Beautiful room on the front with table and chairs in the window.

Stayed here en route to Mull. Everything about the place was excellent. I have stayed many a night in Oban when the ferries haven't sailed. Most of those stays have been miserable, grotty and uncomfortable. This B and B could not be further from that experience.I t was a breath of fresh air . Immaculately clean, tastefully decorated, good shower,... More

We stayed one night at Glenburnie house and found it to be very comfortable. We had a room facing the front and we could see the bay from a single window. The layout of the room was interesting two rooms one with a very comfortable bed and very small on suite, but still fine for our needs. A second room/area... More

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.
