We pitched up on the off chance of getting a room for one night fortunately we got the last one, the ensuite room were both spotless and very comfortable, the owners were very welcoming and helpful.Good value for money and an excellent base for seeing Oban and surrounding areas. We will certainly be back to the Sutherland.

We stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms are modern and clean. The en-suite lovely. Beds are a bit hard but all linen clean and fresh. Cooked breakfast is well presented and nicely cooked. The continental is a disappointment with croissants etc all in plastic bags, some chopped up fruit strawberries etc would have been a nice touch but that's... More

You feel really like 'at home', the guesthouse is ideally situated a few hundreds yards from center town, by the way Oban can be easily visited by foot. If you have the opportunity to get a room on the front, views on the harbour and the sea are just incredibly beautiful. Thank you very much Robert for your warm welcome... More

This charming Guest House was a great find. Beautiful room overlooking the bay. Spotlessly clean, great hosts and lovely breakfast each morning. Conveniently located for the town centre, railway station and ferry port (10 min walk) Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my boyfriend and we loved it, so impressed! Our room was clean and lovely looking over the sea (brilliant to wake up to when its sunny), service was excellent and they were so friendly and spoke to us everyday we were there. Would recommend this place to anyone! Breakfast was cheap too

We stayed one night here with a room overlooking Oban Bay - fabulous! Albeit we were top floor it was well worth the climb! The room was lovely, modern and spotless. There was a lovely feel to the place and the staff were welcoming and friendly. Breakfast (only £5) was one of the best we have EVER had. Highly recommend.

The Sutherland Hotel on the Esplanade in Oban has the perfect positon for viewing all the stately ferries, as they come and go out of the harbour. It is close to the town and one can take walks along the Esplanade in both directions. We found the hotel staff welcoming and the accommodation most comfortable. Our room overlooked the beautiful...
