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

The rooms were very tidy and the couple Simon and Anna were very welcoming and friendly. Breakfast was very nice as well. Views were great as well looking out over Oban and the harbour. I... 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

Just got back from 2 nights at The Old Manse in Oban. Simon and Anna were very helpful in the run up to our stay, recommending places to eat, offering a choice of bedrooms, letting us know we could leave our bags if we arrived early etc. This hospitality was then abundant on arrival and throughout our stay. The house... More

A very well run B&B with friendly hosts and excellent facilities. The hosts went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. They even helped me get to/from the Ryder Cup which I went to see. The room is very spacious, quiet and comfortable. Thoroughly recommended.

A well located Guest House. Very friendly and helpful owners; nothing was too much trouble. Big spacious clean room, with a huge bath and very comfortable bed......and even a friendly teddy to greet us! The breakfast was also excellent. What a great spot!
