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

Stayed at Oban for two nights on our driving trip around Scotland (4th of 5 B&Bs). Originally booked at a sister property down the road, we were redirected here. Location is fantastic with wonderful views of the bay once you walk out. It is a relatively short and very pleasant (especially if it is not raining) walk into town, which... More

We are traveling around Scotland with our 15, 12, 10 and one year olds. This Guest House was our third hotel in Scotland as we travel around, and by far the kids' favorite. The kids (and us too) LOVED the breakfast. The menu has your typical Scottish choices which we were happy to see, and order....but it was fun to... More

We feel that we should write & congratulate the owners and their staff after spending a very comfortable night at this guest house. The room was spotless, bathroom lovely and the complimentary sherry was a very nice touch. Breakfast was one of the best we have had with excellent service & very friendly staff. Lovely touch with linen napkins tied... More
