Initially we thought this was a bit far out from Oban, but it's only a 10 minute walk to the centre. Owners have clearly thought about the little things, with very nice soaps, lotions, shampoos etc provided in the bathroom. Breakfast is served with a smile in a cosy little dining room and the quality of the food is excellent.... More

Some would question our rating of 4 because the rooms on appearance are dorm-like. But so much about our stay here was just as we like it, we could not possibly give friendly James just an "average". B&B was super-easy to find after having viewed on Google maps (recommend this technique). Plus, there is no missing that sky blue paint!... More

A very old but nice house. Rooms comfortable with large bathroom. Located in good position in Oban. Parking spaces at front of house, but a bit awkward to get onto. But in all a good clean place and would recommend this B and B.

We chose this House because of location - close to town and to the ferry (to Mull/Iona). Our room was reasonable size. Our host was most welcoming, especially noticing that we drove by twice and when he saw us, he showed us where to park -- right out front. We had an issue with a window and he came up... More

I was staying myself for 2 nights and had single room (which i must say was more like a double) en suite and all mod cons available. James was very obliging and chatty. Breakfast is a must....cereal yogurt fruit juice then full cooked breakfast. Would... More

We stayed at the Maridon recently on an overnight stop when visiting relations in Oban and catching the early morning ferry to Lochboisdale. Our twin room was very comfortable and clean with a lovely en-suite bathroom. Sadly we missed the highly-reviewed cooked breakfast as we had to leave early but the dining room was open with a well-stocked fridge for... More

Good value for money - friendly and helpful, James made us very welcome. Very good, freshly cooked, breakfast - lots of choice. We had different twin rooms on two separate nights - although a little small they were nice and clean, bathrooms good size with showers. We were very comfortable. everything you need. Plus a car parking space! Convenient and... More

We have chosen this guest house because of its location just next to the ferry. If you plan to enjoy some islands trips this is really perfect place, just 5 minutes walk to ferry terminal. Double room was smaller but en suite with everything you need. Breakfast just perfect!! If visiting Oban again, would definitely stay again.
