This place did not meet our expectations. The location is fab but the b&b itself isn't too great. The room smelled musty. Actually the whole guest house had that smell. The staff wasn't friendly. We have stayed in quiet a few b&bs and hotels in Scotland and this has been the most unfriendly place I've been to. The breakfast was... More

From the very nice photos and handfull postive reviews, we looked forward to our stay at the Corriemar Guest house. I had read in advance, that the parking situation might not be easy in Oban and specifically looked for a place with a parking space. Yes, the Corriemar provides, but notes that you have to leave your key openly available... More

We stayed in Oban for one night during our 10 day tour of Scotland. This was our first trip where we stayed largely in B&Bs (vs. Hotels/boutique Inns) and it was good that our stay here was towards the end of our trip because we were very disappointed. I had booked a year in advance on recommendation of Secret Scotland... More

Clean guest house with everything you expect. We asked for fresh milk and this no problem. Short, flat walk into town, wish we stayed longer! Breakfast was a choice of juices, fresh fruit, and clerical followed by a full Scottish breakfast or smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, the only thing which wasn't very eye appealing! Other options, poached eggs or... More

Upon arrival we asked wether a 7 am breakfast would be possible, answer : yes. Stipulated in writing what we wanted for that breakfast and that we did not want toasts. 7 am : breakfast only available at 07.45 but we were offered... cereals, fruits, juices and... toasts ! £ 110.-- for no breakfast !!! Clean room in a pleasant... More

Our family stayed here overnight prior to travelling to Coll, we had a lovely room and they made us feel very welcome. We were leaving early the next day and although breakfast had not started they made a special early start for us. Will be back next year.

We had a room at the back of the guest house. The room was quite small but had all that we needed. The waterfront views from the "sitting room" are fantastic and that room is quite comfortable, make use of it for a pre dinner drink if you have your own makings. The guest house is an easy flat walk... More

I had bad vibes when I booked this over the phone, rather unfriendly I thought! So much so it made me look at trip adviser reviews more closely, consequently cutting our visit down from two nights to one! Thank goodness we did..... wish we'd cancelled completely.... You have to pay immediately on crossing the threshold, first time for us.... I... More

If you're looking for a 4 star B&B look again. If you're looking to stay with a quirky relative who collects odd items and makes you feel rather unwelcome, with rules and regulations, then this is the place for you. We arrived an hour early by train and were hoping to check in or at least leave our luggage. We... More

We have just come back from a lovely weekend in Oban. We stayed in the Corriemar and had a very pleasant stay. Our double room was cosy and had a good en-suite. The room could do with a freshen up as there was damp around the window and some of the paper was starting to peel. The breakfast was good... More
