We had a wonderful week's stay at Glenburnie House at the end of October. I've stayed in many lovely places over the years but staying at Glenburnie House was the zenith of my experiences! From thee most warmest of welcomes, to the truly scrumptious breakfasts (including delicious home made jams, cakes and goodies), to the sumptuous, original décor of the... More

An outstanding b&b in every way. Extremely comfortable with stunning views over the bay. Loved room 9 ,, could easily have stayed put and watched the Cal Mac ferry go by all day. Lovely breakfast too,,,,, will definitely be back . Great value for money. Thank you.

There is not much more I can say from my previous review. Graeme takes such good care of us and the house is lovely in every way. As a small group tour operator, this is exactly what we look for. I think the fact that we had guests who rated this as their favourite place on the trip says a... More

What a great B&B. Graeme the owner, is so friendly and chatty and an excellent breakfast chef. He also gives good advice on restaurants and places to visit. Such a warm welcome on arrival and a fantastic view across the water. We had the brilliant rooms 4 on the 1st floor and 9 on the 2nd floor, both at the... More

Just far enough out of Oban to be quite and relaxing, yet close enough to walk to Oban's happening city center. Also, near the ferry for Mull Island and a castle ruin with a small walking trail. Unobstructed views of the water from the front of the house. My room and bathroom were large, quite, and comfortable. The host was... More

The owner, Graeme, was an excellent host, the staff was friendly and informative. The home and our room were absolutely beautiful. The food excellent, and the walk to town was lovely. I highly recommend a stay here.

We stayed here for one night recently and would definitely come back and recommend to others. Get a sea view room, the views are to die for! Rooms, staff and breakfast all lovely. Good value for money, i would certainly pay more for those views.

We thoroughly enjoyed our few days at Glenburnie House - only wish we could have stayed longer. Graeme and the staff were super friendly and helpful. Graeme went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we had a great stay. Our room was spacious and very comfortable and had a fantastic water view. Breakfasts were first class. Thoroughly...

We had never visited Oban before but had two recommendations to stay at the Glenburnie. Glad that we took the advice. This hotel is fabulous! Our room overlooked the bay and we were lucky enough to be blessed with two beautiful sunsets!. This was helped by Graeme (the owner) arriving with a crystal ice-bucket and two glasses for our "wee... More

We're just back from a great weekend in Oban, which was made even better by our stay in Glenburnie House on the Esplanade. Our room (no. 17) was great; sadly we couldn't get a sea view due to the popularity of Glenburnie - maybe another time! The room was very well appointed, with a very comfy bed, sofa and chairs....

Dear BJ_McBluenose Thank you very much for such a positive review following your recent stay with us here at Glenburnie House. It was lovely to read that you enjoyed Room 17 so much. Albeit it does not have a sea view, it is the largest in the house. We take our breakfasts very seriously and feel it's important for our... More
