We recently visited Oban and wanted something in town walking distance from attractions and restaurants. The Olde Manse worked great! Parked the car (free parking) for a day which was a treat. Easy walk to restaurants, shops, distillery and ferry. Uphill going back, but not a problem. Simon was a great host and the breakfasts were excellent. Great view from... More

We stayed at the Old Manse over the May holiday weekend. We have taken 4 weekends in Oban over the past year as we like the versatility that the harbour brings for island sightseeing ..However, this particular weekend we wanted something more personal, homely and cosy than the hotels.....as my other half Jim and I had planned to get engaged:-)....

It was a long climb up the hill to the Old Manse, but the view from the yard is well worth the climb. My room was perfect, breakfast was amazing, and Simon and Anna were friendly, welcoming, and helpful. Simon was especially great at getting all the guests talking to each other at breakfast, turning the event into a friendly... More

We arrived on Monday and were greeted by name by Simon. Superb hosts from start to Finish nothing ever too much trouble for them I noticed they were ever so accomadating to everyone.

Well, our first stay in Scotland was not disappointing. I took my boyfriend here for his Birthday in April and we loved it. The place was spotless with lovely little touches and our hosts Anna and Simon were very accommodating and welcoming. I emailed before we arrived and asked if there was anything they could do as a surprise for... More

Perfect is all I can say, beautiful sea view room, comfortable bed, nice trimmings in the room (Craig loved the biscuits with his tea at... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Old Manse in March 2015. We had a fantastic view of the sea. The room itself was incredibly comfortable and inviting. The bed was very comfortable. The owners were very friendly and keen to make our stay a pleasant one. They even provided us with a thermos for tea when we went on... More

This is a superb building slightly above town in Oban. We had a good welcome, the room was an adequate size and generally the stay was good but for a couple of things. I understand that it is an old building but you should not have to turn the shower off to stop the tray overflowing. The bathroom itself was... More
