A ray of sunshine on a dismal Scottish day! We booked the previous night, and made to feel welcome from the very first moment. Our room (1) was comfortably furnished, contained everything we needed (we always travel with our own toiletries) and at the back of the house, so quiet. Karen provided information about local restaurants for an evening meal;... More

I walked into the Grove Guest house very last minute, without a booking, and received a great welcome. The room was extremely comfortable with everything you'd need at hand. The breakfast was one of the best I've had in a bed and breakfast, a really good variety of choices and the freshly made smoothie was sublime. The breakfast kept me... More

Used to think bed and breakfast accommodation was the cheaper version of booking into a swanky hotel. How wrong was I with Grove House! Absolutely first class. Room had everything I needed. Was really surprised there were bathrobes provided, only ever had that in top notch hotels! Karen was a very good host and Carolyn the manager made you feel... More

I stayed here on a business trip last week, the Grove Guest house was a fabulous find. I was greeted with a warm welcome by both the owner and the resident house keeper, the rooms are well proportioned and clean and warm. The breakfast was just to die for and kept me going all day.

We stayed at Grove House for one night. The entrance to the B&B is not on the main road, but on a side road that goes between it and the hotel in town. I made the mistake that British English is the same as American English and had booked a room with a twin bed. I should have known better!... More

The B&B is clean and well-groomed. The room is nice but little bit small, it has a clean en-suite bathroom with no windows. We booked the room by booking.com and breakfast wasn't included so we didn't try it. We stayed two nights in this B&B because it is located just outside Oban but in 10 minutes drive you can reach...

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
