This was a great little B&B. The hosts were very pleasant and the rooms were quite comfortable. It is a little bit of a walk from the train station (up a very steep hill). We didn't realize that when we struck off with our suitcases, and would have gotten a lift in retrospect, but it makes for a great view... More

Came here with my husband (and a friend visiting from Australia). Hugh and Wendy were fantastic hosts. They could not have been nicer to us. The rooms were clean, comfy and we wanted for nothing! Best sleep I have had in ages. Breakfast set us up for the day and Hugh did so much for us in the way of... More

We loved this B & B! Which was about 10 minutes walk from the train station and Ferry port. We had views of the bay, and a pair of binoculars had been in left in the room for our use. It had full tea and coffee making facilities, and free wifi is available. There was also a lounge downstairs for... More

I travelled from lnverness to Oban and wondering how my B&B would be...? This was my first time in the Glenroy Guest house and having travelled to Oban many times before staying overnight, I can say in all honesty that Emma and Her husband were really top first class hosts.... Making You feel at home immediately....! The room was perfect... More

The hosts were very warm and friendly and the rooms were really clean,nice and beautiful(with good view of lake too).Our original booking was with Invercloy guest house who cancelled our booking without any prior notice and told us on our arrival that they have over booked their rooms and that we will have to leave.To our rescue,we found this beautiful...

Just returned from a lovely few days in Oban, and I really can't fault the Glenroy as a base for my stay. The location was very convenient for the town and ferry, my room was spotless and comfortable, breakfast was plentiful, and Wendy & Hugh were the perfect hosts!

I like to judge B&B's not only by the home but the hosts. Hugh and Wendy were a delight and took every care to make sure we were comfortable and taken care of. Our room was smaller than we would have liked but was just fine. The place is a little dated but was in very good shape. We had... More

We were given the downstairs room which was a twin and very cramped but, we were only in the room for a short time . Everything was clean and tidy tea/coffee etc breakfast was very plentiful and owners could not have been more helpful. Easy to walk into town (downhill) views very good close enough to walk to mccaigs tower

B & B indeed the downstairs room is very cramped I agree with other reviewers, the other couple with us had a lovely upstairs room, maybe it would be an idea to make the downstairs room a single! Or to take out the actual tiny toilet and sink and make the room more spacious. Wendy was a great host and... More

After reading the reviews for this establishment I was fairly confident I would be not disappointed. However we were put in a downstairs room ( other rooms may be better - I did not see them ) which was very cramped with 2 single beds and just enough room to move around them. A dressing table next to the window... More
