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.

We only had one night here but we were very impressed. We were tired and a bit stressed after a long day of driving and pressure to return our hire car but Carol and her lovely husband welcomed us so warmly ( including hefting heavy bags of photographic equipment !!) and went out of their way to help our elderly...

My husband and I attended a concert in Oban and booked this fantastic B&B. It was the best B&B which we have ever stayed in...spotlessly clean, very comfy and the owners were lovely. We visit Oban quite regularly and we will definitely stay here again!
