When I read a negative review where most people had great experiences, I wonder what happened. And I feel a bit like that about our own experience. We had struggled up the steep paths from the ferry terminal and while the greeting was friendly the front door was closed again while we waited outside for Sheila to come and welcome... More

Upon arrival at the imposing Lochvoil House (Scottish/Victorian vernacular architecture at its best) we were greeted by the charming Sheila with tea, shortbread and excellent carrot cake, a lovely example of Highland hospitality. The front bedrooms are clean and comfortable with terrific views across Oban and its harbour. Oldies should not be intimidated when driving up to the front of... More

My boyfriend and I were very pleased with this B&B: beautiful place, great location, cosy and comfortable spacious room, large en-suite toilet, amazing views of the town (we stayed in the double bedroom with sea views), and LOVELY LOVELY hosts. Sheila was so nice to us at every moment. When we arrived, she welcomed us with a cup if tea... More

A perfect place to see Oban from or to start or end a trip further afield to the Western Isles. We arrived late one night having driven up Scotland and could not have asked for a warmer welcome, including tea and cake in the cosy sitting room. We only spent one night but it was just a perfect location for... More

We were travelling by campervan; with occasional B&B stops. We liked the fact that Lochvoil House was convenient for the ferry as we planned to go over as foot passengers to Lismore the day following our stop. Sheila was very welcoming and we enjoyed chatting with her. She kindly let us leave the campervan in the driveway when we went... More

Great value B&B which was clean and tidy in a very central location, within walking distance of the centre of Oban. Suited us down to the ground for our one night stay prior to catching a ferry to the Outer Hebrides. Sheila was very welcoming and accommodating with an excellent home made breakfast given our early start. I'd certainly stay... More

If you are visiting Oban, then this is the place to stay. We were here for three nights last spring. It is within easy walking distance of the town centre with it's shops and restaurants. We were warmly welcomed by Kenneth, who told us about his visit to Australia and made us feel right at home. We had a very... More

I loved our short stay at Lochvoil house, becauae Lochvoil is quite high up it has brilliant views over Oban bay, but it is still only at 5 minute walk to the ferry terminal and town. We arrived late after a long journey, We had a lovely welcoming from Sheila, she didn't mind at all that we arrived late, we... More

We loved the Lochvoil House in Oban. Sheila and Kenneth were great hosts - they cooked a full breakfast each morning and were more than helpful with ideas for day trips. Our room was large, very clean, and extremely comfortable. I'd highly recommend this bed and breakfast.
