Unfortunately we stayed only one night, but this was by far the nicest hotel/Inn/guest House of our Scotland Trip. Very nice spacious rooms. Lots of lovely details in the very clean rooms and in the breakfast room too. Great breakfast. Really stylish interior, all the colors match... and very nice framed pictures of the old Oban in the breakfast room.... More

Glenrigh is the archetypical Scottish B&B. Iona, our host, greeted us with a warm welcome and escorted us to our cottage style room. There we found a well appointed, cozy space, complete with a complimentary glass of sherry. We had every amenity we needed. The room was impeccably clean and the beds very comfortable. Glenrigh is located about a half... More

We didn't book ahead after a late decision for a quick trip and we really loved it. Beautiful room with great view, comfy bed, fluffy towels and great big breakfast. Plenty parking and everyone we came into contact was friendly. Iona runs a great place. Great job, well done.

We wandered into the Glenrigh B&B on Oban's waterfront, looking for last-minute accommodation, and - not knowing what to expect - were very pleased with our experience there. The hotel is situated a nice 5-10 min walk from the center of Oban, with striking view across the bay, and is also a quick walk to the Dunollie castle and a... More

An exceptionally good hotel. Our room was lovely with lots of little extras such as bottled water, sherry, biscuits etc. We have stayed in many hotels and this one provided the best breakfast we have ever had. There is a huge choice of food and the pancake stack with bacon, egg and syrup is to die for. The staff are... More

Stayed 4 to 6 June - made to feel very welcome by Iona. Very impressed with the standard of décor - and it was spotless. Great room - number 14 - corner room with big windows overlooking the bay. Breakfasts excellent as said in other reviews. Would recommend without hesitation.

We were warmly welcomed by our host and shown to a well appointed room. There was a very wide selection for breakfast. I found all the staff polite and friendly. My only minor quibble was that the WiFi was not reliable. t is confidently located, just a short walk along the waterfront to the centre of Oban.
