We really felt comfortable in this charming house with very nice accommodations and a delightful proprietor who was helpful and warm. Perfect spot for our overnight near Oban. Great books everywhere and comfortable chairs and beds and a perfect bathtub. The views were especially nice from the bedroom and the communal sunroom.

Literally like a home from home. Great warm friendly welcome from the owners who go out there way each time to make you feel welcome. Rooms are always spotless and well equipped. Travel on the ferries from Oban at quite often erratic times and are always accommodating. Home made / conferred food is AMAZING too!

Thanks so much for this, Steve. You are always most welcome. Because we live so near to the ferries, it's really important that we can be flexible. More

This is in Connel, a short distance from Oban. I didn't want to stay in Oban proper and chose the Strumhor for that reason. Excellent choice. Olga was a very welcoming and gracious hostess. Eveything is very modern. The room, Lorn, was spacious to say the least. Nice bedroom with a basin, sitting/TV room and a separate bathroom all IN... More

Very many thanks for the nice review. I'm always relieved to hear that American guests find our room, Lorn, spacious as we are very conscious that rooms in the US are bigger on average than ours. More

We had a nice time here. The chocolate torte Olga served with afternoon tea was very good. The view from the conservatory made it even better. The bedroom was comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. Tony and Olga are excellent hosts. We recommend staying here to tour this side of the isle.

Strumhor is in a paradoxical setting. Right in front runs the A85; yet just beyond that is the water –– a lovely view from your room, if you're in Lorn, as we were; or from the bay-windowed sunroom. You can watch the sunset, see the tide rippling in or peer through their telescope. There is also a comfy interior sitting... More

This is a very comprehensive review - thank you very much! We were pleased to be able to book you into Lorn this time. We heartily agree with your recommendation of 'Coast' for dinner a very good dinner. I hope this won't be your last visit with us. More

Olga and Tony were generous hosts. Food and accommodations were perfect. We will be back. They helped us with Local bookings like with the Oban Distillery and a fly fishing ranch. We also spent three days out sea kayaking with Tony and used the B&B as home base.

This was our second visit to Strumhor. It cannot be bettered! Olga & Tony cannot do enough for you. The room Lorn is lovely with a delightful view over Loch Etive. Breakfasts are exceptional with a good menu and a 'special' on most mornings. If you are lucky you might get to sample Olga's Gorse Fudge.

So now the secret is out- I'll have to make some more fudge - might try gorse with tablet this time! Thank you so much for the review. It is always a pleasure to see you here. More

We stayed one night when in the area for a family christening. Lovely welcome, homely but fresh, clean, and uncluttered. Tea and home baking in front of the wood burner on arrival was unexpected but a lovely welcome to the B&B. Beds comfy, rooms fantastic. Breakfast first class. Will be staying here again when we visit family. Thanks to Olga... More

Having stayed previously at the beginning of September we knew something of what to expect. We went up for the Hogmanay Escape and were really looking forward to it. We were not disappointed!
