Superb location with a view above the roofs of Oban To the Firth and the isles beyond - especially stunning as the sun drops adding colour to the moored yachts and harbour. The location, although elevated above the town, was in reality, only 5 minutes away walking down a lane from the front garden Our room (6) was spacious and... More

We enjoyed our stay at the guest house. Morven, Robert and dog Bonnie were excellent hosts. Their attention to detail to make our stay enjoyable was exemplary. The guest house is in a very convenient location with a short stroll down a lane way to the town centre. Oban and the guest house was a very beautiful place to stay.

We have stayed here 3 times now. What a great find. A reasonably priced B&B with decent parking is hard to find in Oban, but this has free off road parking which is a bonus. Morven is so friendly and makes you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. The house is beautifully decorated and the rooms are lovely, with... More

Morven and Robert are excellent hosts and make you feel welcome and at home the minute you arrive. They are very friendly and accommodating and willing to help. The guesthouse is well furnished with everything you need in the room. It is kept very clean by Morven who cleans the rooms daily. There are lovely little extras in the rooms... More

We were directed to this B&B when it turned out that we could not extend our stay at the lovely Dunheanish. And what a fabulous surprise it turned out to be. Morven is an amazing and most receptive host. The rooms are absolutely first rate with nice amenities and lots of personal touches, breakfast truly exceptional, wifi excellent, location very... More

If only all landladies could be like Morven. Bubbly, ace welcome, helpful, and so friendly. Accommodation clean, great, quiet position, breakfast scrummy. Dalraich Rd a bit tricky to navigate to but easy when you've cracked it. 5 minutes from ferry port. Can't fault it.

My husband and I would have normally stayed around Oban Esplanade, however this was a last minute Easter weekend break for us and we were lucky to get such a lovely Guest House. When we arrived at the Guest House we were very pleased with the location, a short downhill walk which only took 5 minutes to the town centre,... More

We have just returned from a two night stay at this guest house. The room we had overloooked the harbour and was large and very comfortable. Morven was a great hostess and I would definately recommend this guest house for an enjoyable stay in Oban

We had a lovely visit to Oban, made all the more lovely by our stay here. The building is conveniently located for walking about town, and is beautifully and lovingly decorated and attended. Our view over the harbor was lovely, the breakfast and breakfast room really nice, and Morvan the owner gave us lots of good advice for places to... More
