Good location near station and harbour, all the restaurants and facilities are quite near by too. But there is not a very good of harbour of sea from the hotel. But rooms are very tiny, walls are thin, one can hear sound around the hotel rooms from there. Breakfast was good and personal touch and warming. Overall, OK for a... More

Booked in here after 3 nightmare nights at The Palace Hotel in Oban. What a difference! So friendly, clean and spacious room, great breakfasts every morning with plenty of choice, served with a smile and welcoming Scottish hospitality. Shower spotless and plenty of hot water. Only a few minutes walk back into town. We would not hesitate to recommend The... More

Rather a little hotel, not the kind of B&B with familiar atmosphere one might search for. Pretty torn rooms (the website reads of recently renovated - I wonder how old this entry is) Battered floor with new carpet, a tiny but clean room. Although we appreciate the effort that was put to the breakfast including local yoghurt it was the... More

Maridon House is a pleasant B & B quite close to the ferry terminal. My wife is disabled and can only manage to walk very short distances with the aid of her sticks. This was our second overnight stay here. The owners not only arranged for us to sleep in a ground floor room about 5 yards from the front... More

Surely a basic B&B but the house and rooms have their authentic local simple charm. Rooms are fairly clean and mostly properly maintained. Owner seems friendly and caring. Breakfast is pleasant and plentiful at good atmosphere. WiFi was important to us and worked perfectly. Oban is small enough for everything to be a short walk away from the room.

Maridon House is a fairly basic Bed & Breakfast but the rooms are clean with all that you need including free wifi. TV's 2 remote controls were not too user friendly and might benefit from a note in the information pack or similar clarifying best use. Shower fine as was kettle etc. The breakfast room was neatly laid out and... More

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.
