Not much to say everything "perfect". Good location, short walk into the town, parking on site. Breakfast was continental, plenty to choose from. Hosts were great. Very clean. Oban is a lovely quaint harbour town with a ferry service. Open top bus was good, let you see a lot more of it. Easedale is a great little back in time... More

Booked this place for one night while staying in Oban. It's centrally located to the harbor area, which is a nice 10 minute walk away. The place is clean and nicely decorated. There is private parking for guests provided as well. Our room was on the top floor, but it was not difficult to maneuver the stairs. Our beds were... More

This house is centrally located and our room was very clean and quite spacious. We consider it great value for a short stay eg before a ferry. Breakfast is continental and self service with quite a bit of choice.

He stayed here for 3 nights with our elderly parents, the rooms were very clean. Fresh and licely decor throughout, or rooms had bathrooms with shower. Breakfast was continental, lots to choose from, so if you left hungary was your own fault. Owners were so nice thanks for a great stay

Nice, clean guest house, centrally located. Breakfast was mainly cold and pre-packed offerings but there were eggs (boiled and scrambled) available. Hosts were friendly and helpful, good value for money.
