Glenrigh is located on the Esplanade a short distance beyond the Roman Catholic Cathedral of St Columba. The rooms in the main house have stunning views over the water. Our twin room was in the more recent extension to the rear and was without sea views. I say twin room; it was closer to a small suite containing comfy beds,... More

We were very pleased with our stay here. Our room was beautiful and looked out across the esplanade to the bay. The room was spacious and elegant, probably the nicest room of any B&B we stayed in during our 3 weeks in Britain. There is plentiful parking and easy walking distance to town. Breakfast was very good with a nice... More

We originally had booked an upstairs room for 4 nights. On arriving we were asked if we would like ground floor sea view. It was amazing. The room was huge, stylish, clean, a beautiful bay window and a decanter of Sherry. The breakfasts are amazing, great choices, hearty and delicious. The manager/owner has a great sense of humour and looked... More

We stayed with another couple in late August for one night and wanted to stay an extra night but unfortunately this is a very popular place and there were no vacancies. Our loss because the B&B is very comfortable, clean and the breakfast is top notch. The bedrooms are large and tastefully decorated. Stands head and shoulders above the next... More

This place is well-nigh perfect. A big operation, lots of rooms, lots of guests; a hotel to all intents and purposes but without the bar and the lounge. A perfect location: stand at the front and you've the Oban Bay in front of you. The sea, the boats, the promenade. Some of the rooms have a sea view - ask... More

Beautiful Guest House would love to have stayed longer and will stay again. Great location, lovely views, staff fantastic and the best breakfasts I've had. Tables in the breakfast room were beautifully done with flowers and tartan which added to the charm. Rooms were great, everything you need and nicely decorated.

Stayed on my own for 4 nights, wonderful breakfasts which set me up for the day. Awesome location and room very comfortable with plenty of toiletries. This is my 2nd visit to Oban and not my last, will stay at Glenrigh when I return again. Thank you to such friendly hosts. Richard

Run by a charming and engaging lady this hotel was a real find. Immaculately clean and well appointed including free wi-fi and a decanter of sherry in each room.......very old school. Breakfasts were simply huge but brilliant if you like a traditional Scottish breakfast, again served by the proprietor.Located on the waterfront with stunning views over the water and a... More

Agree with all comments about this b and b. The location is great, just 10-15 mins walk - and a beautiful one at that along the explanade - from the main piers and shopping area. The rooms are big and spotless clean and well equipped. We had a front room with a simply stunning sea view. The decor isn't quite... More

We stayed here 1 night whilst visiting friends in Oban. We arrived earlier than check in time but the owner was very helpful and showed us to our room. We could therefore meet our friends earlier. The room we had didn't have a seaview but had 2 large comfy beds, lovely spacious bathroom with lots of towels and all immaculate... More
