We stayed with Simon and Anna who run this Bed and Breakfast place in Oban. Nice setting. It was a wonderful experience. We did not have a room with a sea view on the first day which Simon provided us the following day very efficiently. Very friendly and attentive. I ran into a back strain while at the airport in...

My husband and I and my sister and brother in law stayed here last week. Our room had a fantastic sea view and my sister's room, which was booked at a later date, overlooked the bowling green. My brother in law loved that. Simon met us in the car park and took our cases and Anna made us pots of... More

We (2 adults, 2 kids) stayed for 3 nights in the family room (which gave the kids a separate room). We were made extremely welcome, with nothing too much trouble. The room was spotless. Breakfast was fantastic - the best choice we have ever seen and all very tasty. We even had a 'take away' breakfast when we left in... More

Oban is a lovely place to visit and The Old Manse is probably one the best places to stay. We had an extremely nice room at the front of the house and I thought the decanter of sherry in the room was a lovely finishing touch! I really enjoyed the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for breakfast and the shared... More

Couldn't have picked a better setting for a few days in Oban. The view that greeted us every morning was breath taking. Really nice room, great shower and a warm welcome from the owners. Breakfast is a choice beyond choice, I had the salmon scramble both mornings as it was so good. Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else while I'm... More

Lovely location with fantastic views, great breakfasts and friendly people. We stayed for one night but are thinking about returning for a weekend trip in the future. After a five hour journey it was great to find somewhere that was so welcoming and relaxing. Would definitely recommend a visit

Friendly welcome from Simon when we arrived. Lovely spacious bathroom and room. Food was excellent with plenty of choice and specials. Tea and coffee facilities in the room and if you ran out you just had to ask and more was provided. Simon greeted us with coffee upon our arrival. Only a few minutes walk to the harbour although its... More

There is lots to commend this establishment. The welcoming and friendly hosts had great suggestions for what to do in the local area are the real stand-out and guarantee of a top rating. The other stand-out are the views (certainly from the room we were given) which gave a perfect panorama over the harbour in Oban. All-in-all outstanding and highly... More
