This place was brilliant. Came to stay here with golfing friend. The owner made us feel so welcome, didn't ask for any deposit or nonsense up front. Room like a 5 star hotel. Really liked the little bottle of brandy free of charge....lovely touch and much appreciated. Everything in the room was first class. And the breakfast room and breakfast....just... More

The Guest House overlooks the Isle of Kerrara; and the view from the first floor room was stunning. The staff are warm, welcoming and unobtrusive; and willing to ensure their guests are comfortable at all times. Breakfast was to 'die for' - if you stay here try the Salmon and Scrambled Eggs - can't be beaten. If you like seafood... More

We had a couple of nights here whilst touring the isles and would happily recommend it! Nice room in their annex block. Excellent breakfast, plenty of parking and easy walk into town. The landlady Iona was very helpful and a good laugh! Ask her to book you into eeUsk if you like fish - it would be a shame to... More

Oban is a lovely little seaside town and we came to drink scotch at the distillery. Iona - the owner - personally checked us in. The room was huge, comfortably appointed, lots of towels, nice shower, and the view! The Sound of Kerrara was right outside our windows. Breakfast was substantial and I ate my fill daily of smoked salmon,... More

Went to Oban as part of a break in Scotland visiting friends. The welcome on arrival by the owner Iona,was to mind mind an indication of what was to come, friendly and with excellent good humour. Had booked into this hotel, mainly for its location, but with regard to previous Trip Advisor comments. We had two double rooms (there were... More

Located on the harbour, situated along a beautiful promenade with an easy walk into the heart of the village. This guest house was a perfect start to our holiday in Scotland. The owner is super friendly and helpful. The room was large and had everything- slippers, bath robe and even complimentary port. If you don't like port there was complimentary... More
