My daughter and I spent 3 nights here last week. Joan was very welcoming on arrival and greeted us by name. Cosy room on ground floor which had all we required, along with a lovely view. Breakfast was well cooked and generous portions. Thank you

The last weekend of March marked my first visit to Oban. Although, I spend my time outside when travelling, I always look for highly recommended places to stay as they add to the experience. Glenbervie Guest House definitely classifies as such. My travel companion and I arrived earlier than the check-in time yet the room was ready. It was a pleasant surprise to see all the teas, coffees and even hot chocolate stocked at the table. The room might not have been considered big as per our modern standards but it was more than comfortable for this stay. If you are lucky you may even get one with a view towards the bay. The house also has a beautiful lounge where you could enjoy some quiet time. The breakfast was between 8 and 9. I saw from other reviews that having that kind of time slot was a problem but it worked great for us. We went for a sunrise shoot at Kilchurn Castle and came back just in time. The tables are allocated in advance which I personally think saves time and hustle. The breakfast was tasty and exactly what you expect from a guest house - Full Scottish, variety of wrapped cheese, toasts and jams, juice, etc. Not to mention the crackling fireplace behind my back while I was enjoying all of this. The location of the house was ideal. High enough to get the views yet no more than 5 minutes walk to the centre. Please keep in mind that it is a bit of a climb when you are coming back. Nothing strenuous for the average traveller though. An added bonus was the free parking. It is always a relief to just find your accommodation, park and head out exploring.

I stayed here for two nights and found it clean, comfortable and welcoming. My room (Room 2) had a lovely en-suite bathroom and very comfortable bed, though as it was at the back of the house there was no view over the bay. Excellent cooked breakfasts set me up for the day each morning. The location is excellent though it is reasonable climb from the waterfront. Good value for money.
