We feel that we should write & congratulate the owners and their staff after spending a very comfortable night at this guest house. The room was spotless, bathroom lovely and the complimentary sherry was a very nice touch. Breakfast was one of the best we have had with excellent service & very friendly staff. Lovely touch with linen napkins tied... More

We stayed here last year and returned again this year as we enjoyed it so much. Arrived at 1pm and was given keys to our large room (room 1) with king size bed and very spacious with sea view and was very comfortable. Breakfast as usual was fantastic and a great choice of food from Iona & Gilbert. Iona and... More

This was the B&B we found after arriving in Oban without have a prior booking. We were very happy here for 3 nights. The room was spacious and clean. The proprietor Iona was fun and helpful. The breakfasts were the best and the location perfect for a peaceful rest. Parking was easy with the large off the road parking space.... More

Good location and the proprietor is fun and gracious. We reserved 2 sea view rooms on second floor and only one was available. She apologized and substituted a first floor side "suite" for one. The sea view room was fabulous in terms of comfort, style and view. The first floor room was below average. It was on the parking lot... More

This was a lovely hotel to stay in. The twin room was new, fresh, clean and tidy with personal touches of tissues, nice toiletries, sherry in the room and generous supplies of tea and coffee. Friendly helpful service with large breakfast portions - I ended up having to ask for half portion size. A super stay in lovely Oban and... More

Lovely guest house, spotless rooms and great breakfasts. I would highly recommend a stay here. Iona and her staff are very friendly. The location is great for the town, beach and ferries. Well worth the price..

Convienent location if you have good mobility. Guest house is across street from lovely seashore walkway which leads to the town centre. Although on the main roadway for Oban, the road becomes very quiet after 8pm so you are not disturbed. Most of the guest rooms have views of the sea, ferrys, and islands. The rooms were reasonably sized and... More

why this is only 20th I don't under stand should be in the top 5 at least. All the staff very friendly, and the room and view one of the best I have stayed in Scotland if not Britain, good location to Oban's shop's and restaurant's and don't forget to visit Oban's own distillery
