We stayed one night and the room was perfect. It has an en suit, tea/coffee facilities and a view of the river. We were recommended great places yo eat and discovered Oban nearby which was a gem. Breakfast was delicious with a wide range of food options. Plenty of parking.

Stayed for 2 nights as we wanted a reasonable priced room to explore Oban and we were not disappointed. We caught the train from a local station at the end of the road and journey took 12 minutes, The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and the room had a comfy bed and we had an excellent breakfast every morning.

We stayed for 5 nights in June/July 14. The rooms were really nice - clean and comfortable. Someone was always on hand to help - eg washing our flasks for us, letting us in when we forgot our key! The breakfasts were unbelievable! Lots of choice, plenty of it and beautifully prepared.

We had a warm welcome and can only say this \Guest House is exceptional. Good location quiet but in easy reach of Oban which is also well worth a visit. Rooms immaculate and breakfast excellent with plenty of choice to suit all tastes. Highly recommended to anyone visiting this area.
