The bed and breakfast is very nice. The owner is just great: friendly, helpful and welcoming. The breakfast is very good and plentiful. I decided to not give 5 because although the accomodation is a 5 star we had booked the very cheap room so we slept in separate beds and we could not use certain services and we could... More

You booked our ' Standard Twin ' bedroom which is great value for those looking for very reasonably priced accommodation while still able to enjoy the extensive gourmet breakfast in the morning. These bedrooms are terrific value for money, and have... More

We were so impressed with Grove House that we stayed an extra night. There was a lovely warm welcome from Karen on our arrival and then the most comfy bed and an amazing choice of breakfast items, ranging from pancakes to smoked salmon bagels with fresh smoothie to accompany it! The B&B is also only 5 minutes walk from a... More

Stopped here as an overnight on our way back from the highlands, a last minute find on Booking.com. Warm welcome upon arrival, nice clean rooms with the happy inclusion of an en-suite bath (I can't read in the shower :-) ). Only a 5 minute drive to Oban for food and a local hotel bar right across the road so... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, immaculately clean. Breakfast choice was extensive and superb. Found it a great base to tour west coast of Scotland and would stay here again. I would have no reservations in recommending it.

Stopped here en route to Iona. If you do not have a car, It is quite close to the train stop and a brief taxi ride away to the Oban ferry. The breakfast was delicious and the room was cheerful and had everything you needed.

This was the best B&B that we stayed in on our trip through Scotland. The owner was extremely friendly with plenty of tips to see and do together with a great eating place (The Oyster Inn).

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a single night, and although we were later than the arrival curfew time, they were able to sort us out when we finally arrived.

We recently stayed at Grove House for one night whilst visiting Oban.
