When we arrived at Ulva having driven from Carlisle we were devastated to find that the voucher group had not sent them confirmation of our booking. Martha and her husband pulled out all the stops to help us and in the end for the first night we were in the garden room and the following 2 used their families bungalow.... More

This B&B was perfect. They have free parking and are within walking distance to everything you want to see in Oban! The proprietor was kind enough to give us a short cut into town, and provide us with ideas of what to see and do. Breakfast was delicious and everyone was so friendly. The room provided everything we could have... More

Our first visit to Oban and we stayed in the Ulva Villa for two nights. John was pleasant and informative upon our arrival, we were in the garden room which is outside and separate from the main house but this was good as we had more privacy. Very small bathroom as previous reviewers have noted but it did the job,... More

We enjoyed our stay at Ulva Villa. It was really clean and comfortable, with a nice breakfast (I really liked the fruit plate!). The hosts were very friendly, and were very accommodating when I changed my arrival time on short notice. We would rebook on a return to Oban!

I may be a little unfair in my review of Ulva but having spent a couple of nights on the west coast in a different B&B/Guest House on each night I am comparing them against each other. Regretfully Ulva came second in the 2 horse race. Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with Ulva however I feel they... More
