We have stayed here several times and would highly recommend it. Lovely position on the sea front, great breakfast, friendly host and staff, and comfortable, beautifully decorated bedrooms. The honesty snacks and teddies in the rooms are a nice touch. Looking forward to staying again soon.

Stayed here for one night in a large sea view room with en suite and all the facilities you expect of a hotel. In the bay window was sofa so you could watch the ferries and fishermen coming in and out of the harbour with a nice drink. We loved it, well worth paying the few pounds extra for. Graeme... More

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 .
