Friendly welcome, lovely spacious twin room with view over the harbour to the islands. Excellent breakfast. Helpful directions made it easy to find, and it's only a few minutes' walk downhill into town.

Host were very welcoming and helpful. Room was really nice and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and as well as normal choices there were several specials which makes the guest house stand out. It is only a 10 minute walk into the town.

The owner provided us with good diner suggestions and everything is located within walkable distance. In the morning breakfast is served in a... More

This was the second time we have stayed in Oban this year, the last time was at The Rowan Tree but they were charging over £100 for a night and this little gem was £85 and far better in value and enjoyment. Run by Simon And Anna and just a stones throw up the back lane from the main street... More

We stayed with Anna and Simon in the beginning of September. This was our first stop on our tour of Scotland, and this was the most wonderful spot in our entire trip. The city and the b&b really made our trip. The breakfasts are delicious, the hosts are so nice and welcoming, the rooms are comfortable, and conveniently located. You... More

My boyfriend and I stayed for two nights back in August. Simon and Anna couldn't have been more welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay the best it could be. When the taxi didn't show to take us to the restaurant Simon came out and gave us a lift. They went well beyond the call of duty.... More

We stayed in Oban for two nights and had excellent accommodations at the Old Manse. Simon was very welcoming and gave us recommendations for dinner, which he followed up by making reservations for us. The B&B is only a few minutes from downtown and the distillery, and the walk back up the hill after a big dinner is actually welcome.... More
