Only stayed one night, but the Glenrigh was perfect. Lovely room, very clean and modern. Excellent staff, and breakfast was an absolute treat. Highly recommended. Parking on the property and free wifi are a bonus. The owner was lovely and couldn't be more helpful.

We stayed 2 nights. The perfect place for friendly staff,great location, parking, wifi with the comforts of home. Breakfast from 7-9 with a surprisingly good selection to start your day. The best place we have stayed in so far during our tour of Scotland

I booked the Glenrigh Guest House over the phone, having read the Trip Advisor reviews, around three months before my one night stay. I was explicit that I would be driving from Glasgow airport in a hire car and hoped to arrive around 11pm - 11:30pm. Whilst the young lady taking the booking noted that they normally lock-up around then,... More

I had to find accommodation for a night in Oban in high season after missing a ferry connection - not an easy thing to do. After four failed attempts I was recommended to try Glenrigh. As it turned out, I'm glad the other four were fully booked! Although I got the last room in the house (up on the second... More

A truly wonderful experience. Everything about the Glenrigh Guest House was first class. Luxurious room of enormous proportions and a fantastic ensuite shower room, both immaculate. Attractive and sumptuous decor made us feel we were in a top end city hotel. The breakfast room was lovely with an amazing choice of fruits, breads, cereals, cheeses and continental meats. Cooked breakfasts... More

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Glenrigh and can't praise it enough. Iona keeps a watchful eye on everything, ensuring that standards are maintained. Although not large, our bedroom was absolutely lovely with crispy clean bed linen, fluffy towels and lots of nice touches, e.g. varied teas, including herbal, in the bedroom. The breakfasts were delicious with the... More

Access brilliant. Carparking fantastic. Proximity to town great... an easy walk for dinner. Scenery fantastic. The room "with a wee bit if a view" was just lovely ... roomy and very comfortable. Breakfast delicious, and, oh, of course Iona! A wonderful, witty and delightful host. Many thanks.

Iona the owner welcomed us as if we where her family. Room was great plenty of storage, very comfy bed and the essential tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast was top class with a really good mixture to suit everyone.
