The guest house has a good location on the sea front. The building is a beautiful 3 story victorian house. It is decorated in an ornate manner, stuffed with fragile ornaments and dolls. Our room, which we paid £88 for was tiny and faced a blank wall. The bedhead was surrounded by cupboards, which woke us in the night as... More

Superb location when you get a room with sea view, which we hadn´t. The room was OK, a little bit oldfashioned, but clean. Breakfast was average. The owner was nice, but in other accomodations we got warmer welcomes. For that price I honestly was expecting a bit more. Anyway, had a good time in Oban.

Moved to this Guest House as the Caledonian Hotel in Oban failed to honour my booking (I got three different excuses! be wary of this hotel), although slightly further to walk to the Guest House, it was a very pleasant route. It a very well very appointed, the room was the best I have stayed in during my many visits... More

This is a lovely B&B in a great location. We had a beautifully appointed front room with an absolutely amazing view over the Bay. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful during our stay and most responsive to requests. The Scottish breakfasts are a special feature of this B&B and well worth experiencing, especially the haggis and black pudding. Oban... More

If you are travelling to Scotland I would not recommend this place. We booked accommodation at the above from the 21st July until the 23rd July (2 nights). The reception we recieved when we arrived was very unwelcoming so should have realised what was coming. In the room we was allocated, there was no milk, no tissues, no hand soap... More

We stayed 2 nights in Oban at the Corriemar Guest House. The whole town has a lovely Victorian feel which the guest house had in spades! Well decorated and elegant, with a nice sitting area this is a charming place. Breakfast was lovely and the room was very clean.

This is a great B&B in a brilliant location. We stayed here for 4 nights and loved it, the room had a great Bay view and was was very clean and tidy.

We're a family of 4 with 2 young children and all really enjoyed our stay. We had the lovely seaview family room with a fantastic view and it was very comfortable.

We stayed two nights here and it was quite pleasant. The room was a bit dated but sufficient as we were only in the room for an hour or so before sleeping. The view out our window of the water was beautiful, so that helped. We had a wonderful hot breakfast and free WiFi. It was a few minutes walk... More

A warm welcome from this couple. The room was spotlessly clean and the bed was very comfortable. Loved the quirky ornamentation on each floor. Loads of choice for breakfast cooked to perfection and served attentively. Fantastic view across the water and being able to park was an added bonus. Thanks we had a great 3 nights Linda & Ian.
