We stayed at this lovely B and B in Oban and certainly were not disappointed. Lovely warm welcome from Carol and our waterfront room was clean, well appointed and a comfy bed. The hot water system was a bit challenging at first but we soon worked it out. Stairs were also challenging, especially with a case but we were rewarded... More

Stayed here for one night during our road trip through Scotland - Alltavona is a delightful place with the friendliest staff. Clean, quiet despite the large number of rooms, and 7 minute walking distance along the bay to the town centre. Our room had a view of the bay, which I highly recommend. Breakfast was delicious too! Wifi signal was... More

We stayed here for a week in September. We reserved a front facing room with bay window. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The view was just outstanding, as was the service. There was nothing we asked of Paul or Carol that they weren't happy to provide, from extra towels to waffles for breakfast. They were both friendly and... More

Stayed here for 1 night during a short tour .Pleasant staff but was not able to meet the owners due to personal reasons they were not available but spoke to landlady on the phone and she appears to be a pleasant lady. My room did not have a sea view but looked out on the next building. I did not... More

Had a lovely stay here on a busy Saturday in September. We had a standard room with a lovely view of the bay. If you can get one of the rooms with the larger bay windows I would recommend it. The decor in the room we had was lovely and complimented the general high standard and style of the house.... More

Excellent B&B in Oban. Along the esplanade and great view of the sea and the islands. Very picturesque. Really nice owners who were very friendly, made us feel very comfortable right away. Shared whiskey available and a shared ongoing game of chess. Lots of positives but I loved the oatmeal - best of all the B&B's in 3 weeks in... More

The room was very clean, pretty, and comfortable. The owners could not have been nicer people. Breakfast room was amazing....the sitting rooms were lovely, the food was excellent and more of all, again, then owners were incredibly kind and helpful. Loved them! Thanks from Scott and Ruth

We didn't book this, we just turned up at the last minute (August Bank Holiday) and luckily enough there was a room available. The owners were really accommodating, the room was lovely and the breakfast brilliant. Would not hesitate in staying here again or recommending it to anyone else. Although next time I would book in advance to get a... More

Our hosts (Carol and Paul) were so outgoing and welcoming. The house is gorgeous, the view from our front-facing room was spectacular, and the restaurant Paul suggested for dinner was wonderful. Breakfast was served, rather than buffet style (which is what I was expecting) and was excellent. You order the night before, so they know what to cook. The only... More

I am pleased that we have given you a pleasant taste for bed and breakfast . We thank you for your comments regarding the en suite in the room and will look into re design but as you know with Victorian properties this can sometimes a little difficult, and as you say it is functional . We have had some... More

We were booked into Alltavona as part of a 2 week Rabbie's Highlands and Islands tour of Scotland. This was the first bed and breakfast we stayed in and was definitely the best of all of them. Firstly, the house is lovely and beautifully decorated. Our room was comfortable, clean and the breakfasts were huge. We were there for 2... More
