I can recommend everyone who is going to Oban to stay here. The owners are both really friendly, the rooms are big and clean. The breakfast was really good 😊 The owner also give some tips what you should see beside the normal tourist things. We're really good recommendations. We come again.

Really nice place to stay in Oban. We had a large and clean room with a great view across the harbour over to Mull. The location is ideal for walking into the town, it just takes a few minutes. The owner was friendly and helpful and breakfast of haddock scrambled eggs was delicious!

We were also offered tea and coffee which was brought up to our room hot and fresh in a pot. The room facilities were good and the view of the harbour was lovely. the... More

We had a spacious room with a perfect view of the harbor and islands beyond. The large bed was very comfortable and we appreciated being able to make our tea and coffee in our room. Simon and Anna could not be more helpful with directions. One morning, when we had to leave way before breakfast to get a ferry, Anna... More

Excellent location, about a 5 minute walk to town with a great view of the harbor. Ame and Simon were very helpful and friendly. We choose an upstairs room with a view. The rooms upstairs were smaller - but the view makes it well worth it. We found the room to be big enough for us. Breakfast was good offering... More

Perfect place to kick off our tour of the West Coast of Scotland. Anna & Simon were great hosts welcoming us with tea & biscuits and provided excellent breakfasts and help in exploring the area. The B&B is near enough to the town of Oban to walk there in 10 minutes for our evening meal without worrying about whose driving!... More
