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

Lovely little B+B, only a five minute walk from the centre of the town and the train station. I was staying in the Garden House which was a little separate house in the garden. The room was very nice- spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfast in the morning was lovely, there was a good choice and was freshly cooked. I... More

This B&B is close to the centre of Oban. You can get to the centre on foot (10 minutes), using a shortcut taking you past some shops and parking lots, avoiding the main road. This was very helpful as we wanted to leave the car on the B&B’s private parking lot and make a day trip to the Isles of... More

I was staying at the Ulva Villa Guest House last weekend with 3 of my girlfriends (all in our early 30's). On arrival the female proprietor was unbelievably rude. When we went to check in she advised us in a very aggressive tone "I've just finished cleaning the rooms!" - clearly mad that we wanted to access them - all... More

Stayed at the Ulva Villa Guest House for one night with three friends and can honestly say that I've never felt more unwelcome in a 'guest house'. We arrived at two and were snappily told by the female proprietor that she'd 'just finished cleaning the rooms'. Good. We hoped so. Don't know if she wanted them to sit empty for... More
