This is the place to stay in Oban! The welcome was warm, the large room overlooking the Bay could not have been better, the breakfast choice could not have offered more. Helpful advice & information was available. As it was a touch (!) wet at the time Robert even offered to order up a taxi for me to take me... More

Most welcoming hosts. Loved the room and the location. What a view from the breakfast room. We really enjoyed our brief stay here. Hosts gave great advice about where to go and what to do. The room was small and bathroom smaller, but theirs was outweighed by the comfortable bed with wonderful cotton linen.

What a great place to start our holiday! A beautiful room with a great view, friendly knowledgable hosts and terrific facilities. Morven and her husband (and dog!) made us so welcome and we are looking forward to staying here again. Perfect location for walking into town and Morven's restaurant tips were spot on. You will not regret booking this place!

Top B and B! We had the regency room with the four poster which was both comfortable and cute. Morven the owner could not have been more helpful and was friendly but not intrusive. She offered to bring us fresh milk for our tea which is a sign of someone who knows what tea drinkers like, and much appreciated. There... More

We stayed with Morven for two nights on our trip around Scotland. It is a beautiful property over looking the Oban harbor. A very short walk to all the local spots - Tower, Town Center, Restaurants, Tesco, the Dock. We left our car parked and walked everywhere. Morven has some good restaurant recommendations also so don't be afraid to ask!... More

Excellent stay with Morven and Robert as hosts. Had the Regency Room with a four-poster bed and stunning views overlooking Oban Harbour. Only a short walk to the town. Clean, comfy room with all amenities and wonderful breakfast.

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
