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 have stayed here many times and from the beginning have always been impressed with the friendly welcome in this professionally run establishment. The rooms are very comfortable with plenty hot water and all the things one would expect in a B &B plus more. Breakfast has a good choice, with some self service for cereals, juice, yoghurt & cheese.... More

Highly impressed- spacious and very clean rooms and excellent choice at breakfast. Irene and John are the perfect hosts- they make you feel at home and even offered us a lift into town when it was raining! Exactly what you want/ need when staying in a B&B. I'll definitely be back.

Have stayed here for a number of years and it keeps getting better and better. Highly recommend the Strathnaver and have done so on many occasions. Irene and John can't do enough to help. Well worth a visit.
