“Perfect first night!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Kathmore House in Oban was our first stop on our Scotland vacation. We were later in the day getting in, but wew were welcomed, shown to our room and given great advise and directions to town. Good room, great value and a mighty fine breakfast.
We would definately stay again!

Very nice B&B a few minutes walking away from Oban city center. En suite, with working wi-fi and coffee facilities. Good cooked breakfast in the morning.
Kathmore Guest House is a very good accomodation!

I stayed for 2 nights and as I was catching a early morning ferry I asked for a packed breakfast which I ate on the ferry .
Room was very good , as was breakfast , off street parking and ferry port in walking distance (3/4 of a mile).
Highly Recommended

We stayed in one of the twin rooms on the way home from the Hebrides.Have stayed here a few times and there's always a lovely welcome from Morven. Very clean and comfortable with friendly staff. Great breakfast as well. Room to park the car off the street and only a short walk to the town centre and harbour. Highly recommended to all. Thanks!

This was our second Was our second stay at the Kathmore two years in a row whilst waiting to catch the ferry to higher parts of Scotland. The staff were very friendly and helpful,the rooms excellent and the service also excellent. Brilliant for easy access to the centre of Oban and the harbour and ferry port sand also for shopping. We would happily stay there again should we be travelling further up into the highlands of Scotland.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking th garden and car park were superb.

Stayed one night at this guest house in Oban in July and was very pleased with the whole experience.The owners, Keith and Morven and their staff were very helpful and obliging. The single room was very clean and had everything I needed for a perfect stay. First class breakfast exactly as I requested.Thanks again!

We stayed overnight on our way to Mull. The room was very pleasant and although it was at the front of the house it was quiet at night and I had no difficulty in sleeping. The hostess was very welcoming and helpful.My husband said the breakfast was the best he had had.I would be happy to recommend this guest house.
