Cannot fault this guest house at all! We were made most welcome by the proprietor Iona and were fortunate to get her last room for the night. It was one of the annex rooms at the rear of the house which was immaculate and well equipped, even including a small decanter of sherry! As for breakfast I have never seen... More

We arrived in Oban and had nowhere booked to stay overnight so trawled through TripAdvisor for somewhere close by. Glenrigh was in sight of where we'd parked and the write up was good. We asked for a room and disabled friendly. We were in luck and had the B room in the annex. Twin beds and a shower, even a... More

Stayed for 4 nights at Glenrigh, I can recommend it, we were in room 14, worth paying that bit extra for a superior room with a super king size bed. Breakfasts were delicious there's everything you can think of to suit all tastes, but try the stack of pancakes with berries and cream, Iona is the perfect hostess and all... More

Lovely overnight stay at Glenrigh guest house. We booked a family room and in fact were allocated two adjoining rooms with a secure door to the corridor giving us a wing to ourselves letting us keep the two room doors open all evening. Stunning views from room over Oban Bay let us watch the ferries come and go. Friendly welcome... More

The breakfast are fantastic in both selection and quality. Our room overlooked the bay and the guest house is very conveniently located in Oban, Just a few minutes... More

We enjoyed four nights at this outstanding guest house. We were given a warm welcome by Iona who showed us to a lovely room which included a lounge area. Although we did not have the best of the weather, the room was always warm, well appointed and very comfortable. The breakfasts were outstanding and we hope to return when the... More

We booked this last minute for a short stay before a trip to Mull. Fantastic house, fabulous room with great views and everywhere spotless. The house itself is amazing...just like stepping back in time. Lovely welcome from Iona who is friendly and engaging with all her guests and the breakfast, so much choice but five star all round - we... More
