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

I spent a wonderful 3 nights at Glenrigh guest house recently and cannot praise it enough! I had a lovely big room with the most amazing sea views, it was extremely clean with excellent facilities. The bed was very comfy. The shower was great and the towels were large white and fluffy. Breakfast was excellent....those savoury pancakes with bacon egg... More

Glenrigh is a lovely place to stay. The breakfast was very nice as was the seaview room we had. Oban is also a nice place to visit. Glenrigh has some very nice touches in the room with complimentary Sherry on the tables as well as a USB charger and a large selection of tea and coffee. The only downsides if... More

We were booked into another hotel on the Esplanade in Oban but upon arrival at the other hotel we were rudely informed by a member of staff that we were not allowed children as we had a 4 month old baby with us. We walked along the front and saw the Glenrigh had vacancies, when we got out of the... More
