We stayed for two nights at the Alltavona Guest House last week. The room (5) was spotless, the view was amazing and the bed was super comfy. The breakfast was just amazing, we didn't need to eat again until dinner. My favourite part was helping myself to a half after a long day of touristing! Thank you Carol, Paul and... More

We stayed in room 4 for a long weekend in July. Breakfast is lovely (there is more than enough food, definitely no need to worry on that front) and the room was clean and had a beautiful view. Carol and Paul were very helpful and even dropped us off at the ferry terminal when we were running late one morning.... More

I had a wonderful one night stay here in this lovely B & B. The room I stayed in on the second floor was immaculately clean, the bed was very comfortable and the bathroom great! The free wifi allowed me to connect with my family overseas. The hosts were very accomodating for my dietary needs for breakfast. I hope to... More

A reasonably good place but not what it could be. Breakfast croissants terrible. Cooked breakfast good but standard products. Scrambled eggs unimpressive. No tissues in room. Rooms small and bathroom very compressed! It is on 3 floors so heavy cases can be a challenge. Owners seldom to be seen.

It was a pure pleasure staying at this guest house. We have room 7 which had an amazing sea view, being at the top of the house, with a lovely window seat. The food and hospitality shown by the new owners was tremendous, they couldn't have done more to make our stay better. The staff were friendy and helpful too,... More

Our hosts, Paul and Carol, greeted us warmly. They became friends very quickly and yet still treated us like VIPs. Our rooms were cozy, comfortable, well appointed and very clean. Our views out onto the Oban harbor were mesmerizing. I stayed up late and woke early to watch the CalMac ferries pass by our windows. The breakfasts were delicious, ample,... More

Lovely people. Clean well maintained house very welcoming owners and staff. Great location for walk into town centre. We would book again I don't think we could get any better accommodation for the 4 day stay we had. This is a great base to visit Oban from.

Just returned from a lovely stay at Alltavona House. Carol and Paul are wonderful hosts and simply can't do enough for you. We had a very comfortable room and the breakfasts were excellent. Will certainly return.
