We chose The Old Manse after a long hard search through many hotels and guest houses in Oban. We had a particular group: couple, adult son, single lady and older lady, so it was difficult to find something suitable. However, The Old Manse turned out to be the best choice for us. Beautiful views, very warm welcome and great range... More

My wife & I have just had a splendid weekend in Oban staying at The Old Manse Guest House which is a beautiful building. The room was ideal, comfy bed, spotlessly clean, a good variety hospitality tray. Hot shower which was great. Fabulous hosts Simon & Anna. Breakfast was terrific too. We will definitely be back. 5*

We were made to feel very welcome upon arrival,Anna and Simon are very friendly and helpful hosts.The breakfasts were great and were made even better by beautiful sea views from the dining room.There was alot of helpful information provided on local walks and trips,one of our highlights being a day trip to the Island of Kerrera.Will definitely be back.

From the booking to leaving after a lovely stay, everything was just right at "The Old Manse". We arrived after a long day sightseeing, and was greeted by Simon, and shown to our room. It was very spacious and warm. There was a good choice of coffee, tea and biscuits to help ourselves to, plus a drop of sherry too!... More

Beautiful rooms, a great breakfast and wonderful hosts. Great views of the water, easy access to the town center while still removed from the crowds. In retrospect we wished we'd spent more than 2 nights here!

A very friendly B & B that gives a great (mixed Scottish and Yorkshire) welcome. Friendly owners who are keen to help. The rooms are comfortable. Probably some rooms are in need of a touch of paint. It is situated at the top of the hill - so views are good but the walk up from the town can be... More

This guest house is a very short (but steep) walk to the center of Oban. Unlike some other lodging options that might be found down around the harbor, this gets you out of the fray, but walking in and out is easy. It is on a quiet street and boasts a beautiful view of the harbor. Simon and Anna are... More

We had a fabulous room at Old Manse Guest House, very big, overlooking the sea, couldn't have asked for a better room. Simon and Anna are extremely welcoming, very knowledgeable about the area, where to go, eat etc, even gave us some tips for our trip to the Lake District on leaving them. Breakfast was very good and we would... More

Simon and Anna offer a great experience with wonderful food, and extra attention to their guest needs. Simon really knows the area and steered us to a great trip of Mull and Iona (one of the highlights of our trip) and Anna is amazing in the kitchen--the food was wonderful. The view from Old Manse are spectacular and Oban is... More
