Had a big, comfortable room with a bright and sunny bathroom. Sadly no view from the room -- book early if you want that! But still very pleased with our stay. Short walk to Oban down a steepish hill. Parking is laid out so that two people park at the front of the lot, then two people behind them, but... More

Entering from the rear of the property you don't realise what a great view you have over Oban and the Isle of Mull The house is lovely and well kept . Our room sadly looked out the back but this was ok although the bowling green was opposite so did not feel too private. The bathroom was small but well... More

Very warm welcome, had complimentary coffee and home baked cookies on terrace when arrived. Stunning sea views, quiet location yet central to harbour/town. Our room was spotless, had lots of lovely thoughtful touches. Binoculars to make the most of the sea views, CD player and discs, good selection of teas and coffee, (fresh milk available in mini fridge) on landing.... More

We stayed at the Old Manse for 3 nights & had a lovely stay. Our room had a view of the sea which was beautiful as was the room. Bathroom was a little small but was all we needed. Anna & Simon are wonderful hosts. Very friendly & helpful. Breakfast each morning was cooked to order & excellent. The garden... More

My partner and myself had an excellent time. The proprietors were friendly, knowledgeable, & helpful. The Breakfast was beautiful with specials changing on a daily basis adding to an extensive menu. Anna & Simon went out of there way to help make our trip great! I would stay again in a heartbeat.

My partner and I spent a week at the end of July this year at the Old Manse. Simon and Anna made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Indeed, they made us feel less like guests and more like friends. We were fortunate to enjoy a lovely view of the islands of the inner Hebrides from... More

A fab stay, nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Anna and Simon. Lots of personal touches home made cakes and fresh flowers. Treated you more like good friends rather than paying guests. The location of the place was perfect, only a five minute walk into the town area would stay again.

Stayed at Old Manse for three nights during a 13 day tour of Scotland. By far the best of the places I have stayed so far. Anna and Simon are great hosts - welcoming and cheerful. The inn itself is most lovely and Anna and Simon have done a great job of offering extra touches not found at other B&B's... More

We had a great stay in the Old Manse to venture to the local islands. The rooms are lovely & Simon & Anna were excellent hosts. The sherry along with the tea & coffee in the rooms was a lovely touch. Would highly recommend.
