We stayed in Strathnaver for 4 nights in mid August 2014 and John and Irene were most helpful in comfortably accomodating my wife and me and our disabled daughter and her support worker. The rooms and the whole house are in perfect decorative order and spotlessly clean. Car parking is easy, in the grounds of the house. The amenities of... More

we were made to feel most welcome from the outset of our 3day stay in Oban at Strathnaver. Both John and Irene were helpful and friendly and provide a great breakfast before going to enjoy the many things to do from Oban. Our room was comfortable, there was plenty of room for parking, with only a five minute walk down... More

A great stay in a well situated B and B with views of the sea from our bedroom and the dining room. Our room was sunny, spacious and comfortable. We were a short walk from the centre of Oban. A big plus was the plentiful parking around the house. Irene's breakfasts were excellent, and we were offered great advice on... More

Well located Oban B&B, away from the traffic and bright lights (relative for this part of the world!) of the centre, but only ten mins walk. Loads of parking, wifi, comfy rooms (no baths), fine cooked breakfast, warm welcome from owner Eileen. Not the most characterful of buildings, but for the price I think it's great. If we're ever back... More

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights at this excellent B&B in Oban from 6th to 11th June. The owners, Irene and John couldn't do enough for us and their knowledge and suggestions for trips, routes etc etc were spot on. Our double en suite room, number 6 was at the front on the first floor with a great... More

We had a lovely, three day stay at Strathnaver. Our hosts were very warm and accommodating and went out of their way to be helpful. The B&B is convenient to the town center and breakfast was delicious.

Stayed there late May 2014. Room clean and neat. no faults.Well perhaps the Tv was too small to view from the bed. Breakfast good. Boiled eggs are a difficult breakfast to cook, because you cannot see them. Well executed. Chatting with the owner on leaving, he asked what I was doing in the area. I told him I was supplying...

We can highly recommend this Guest House as we have just spent some time there. It was warm and welcoming when you walked in. John and Irene are very professional as well as pleasant and friendly.
