We had 5 wet, windy but wonderful days in Oban. We stayed at the Glenrigh and could not have been looked after better. Our room was huge and had a wonderful sea view. It's right on the shoreline and only a few minutes walk into town. Iona and her staff made us feel very welcome and were very knowledgeable about... More

We arrived in Oban to find a huge selection of guesthouses along the waterfront. Many had limited parking. Fortunately we had made reservations. Glenrigh is part of a beautiful old hotel (?). They had amply parking for all their guests. It is 4-5 stories tall and you will want to ask for a lower floor since there is no elevator.... More

This was a very nice bed and breakfast in Oban; plenty of parking spaces and a nice breakfast. Our room had a fantastic view of the bay and a larger size bathroom. The room was very clean; the location was a bit of a walk to town but a beautiful walk along the bay. I would recommend this B&B to... More

We stayed here for a long weekend and we thoroughly enjoyed it. There was plenty of parking, excellent wifi and the breakfast was fantastic. The range of foods available in the cold buffet was great and the full Scottish cooked breakfast certainly set us up for the days activities! The lady who runs the b&b and her staff were all... More

This is a lovely Victorian house still retaining some architectural splendour, the stair case is a fine example of the era. The stairs are a bit of a challenge with your cases if your room is on the top floor. New extensions have been added with sympathy to the bilding. Our room was on the top floor with a good... More

Great short stay in Oban at the Glenrigh Guest House. Ample parking for all guest cars, fairly central location, lovely room with beautiful sea view, and friendly attentive staff. Breakfast was a delight with a vast choice of food, freshly cooked and from the cold buffet. Guest information was readily available about restaurants, places to go and things to do.... More

We were delighted by this hotel, more so than the other place we stayed in Oban. The building was beautiful with a grand staircase. We had an oceanview room, and the facilities were lovely. Nice shower and exceptionally good breakfast! The only downside was that the bed was a little hard, but it was very nice to stay here.

This B&B is located in a stately building on right on Oban's promenade overlooking the bay. Our family room was in the annex, so there was no seaview, but you could sleep with the window open and enjoy the fresh air. The room was clean and nicely furnished, next to the coffee and tea amenities there was Sherry offered, which... More
