4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We recently spent 6 nights at the guest house and had a lovely time. We stayed in the room with the 4 poster bed and smashing views over the harbour. Robert greeted us on arrival and took us to the room which was clean and comfy. The ensuite was very compact, no issue for me but my partner who is... More

We visited this b&b a week ago. We did stay in a compact room but as we were hardly in the room it did not matter one iota. The whole place was clean, it did not smell at all (re comments made by Mr Angry on 11 June), Sarah was very helpful and it is in a perfect central location.... More

My husband and I have just had a 3 night stay at Roseneath with the lovely Sarah as our host. On looking here on Tripadvisor I have read the other comments placed, especially Craig's and I am at a loss to understand his comments. The previous week we had stayed in a 5 star hotel in Cyprus and this was... More

My new wife and I honeymooned there in April of 2015. We had an absolutely wonderful visit. We had an issue with our baggage at the airport and Sarah was very helpful with pointing us in the right direction to replace our essentials and in receiving the bags when they arrived. The room was clean and the bed was comfy.... More

Spent a wonderful couple of nights here for my birthday. The breakfasts alone were worth the stay (especially the made to order pancakes with real fruit in them!) We had a lovely room with a great view across the harbour and onto Mull. We didn't have any plans so asked Sarah (the owner) for advice and quickly realised that she... More

My wife and I found were stunned by the odor when we walked into the hotel. There was a strong body odor smell that felt like a punch in the face as we entered the property. Our room was dirty, as is the majority of the hotel. Basic expectations not met, particularly for a 4 star place. Bed sheets were... More

Just up the hill from city centre is roseneath. Overall it met our needs - a bed, breakfast and a full bath - all very clean. I would recommend a location right down town as it is more convenient. The hike up the hill wasn't bad, but after a long day of travel it isn't ideal.

This is a lovely guest house situated along a quiet residential road in Oban. It is situated about 4 minutes walk from the main road/harbour, which has plenty of restaurants and shops, and is also a few minutes walk from McCaig's Tower. There is convenient parking at the back of the house. We stayed in room 3, which was large... More

Beautiful view of the whole harbor and a hostess who was very helpful with ideas for places to visit. A quick walk to downtown restaurants and the ferry dock. Loved our cozy room! Would stay again in a heartbeat!

Roseneath Guesthouse was the perfect jumping off point for time in Oban. Sarah (the hostess) provided delicious breakfast every morning, clean comfortable accommodations, and facilitated a friendly atmosphere among the guests. She had great advice about what to do around town and journeys to the surrounding islands. She even provided umbrellas for guests caught in the rain! Overall, a great... More
