We struggled to find accommodation in Oban so didn't have much choice, and didn't have great expectations. Our room was at the top of the house and had a nice sea view however......... The toilet seat was not attached to the toilet and slid around when you sat on it. Our hostess tray had tea and coffee and an opened... More

Thank you Linsay :):):) When I turned up at 7pm, I found that my room was double-booked. Booking.com had messed up. There was NOTHING showing as available in Oban, but Linsay found a spot after placing many calls. A true saint ! Thank you Linsay

We spent 2 nights there. The room was fine and we had the extra small bed for our baby. The breakfast was only continental. Not far from downtown, and there is a free parking 5-10min on foot higher...

Friendly reception. My room probably one of two made out of what may have been a much bigger room (the large window was shared between rooms and split by a partition wall), which was OK except that it was possible to hear guests in the neighbouring room. Continental breakfast was poor: cheap, supermarket type sliced bread dispensed from its waxed... More

The B&B itself was nice, may be a bit of an issue the number of steps. The girl that welcomed us to reception was nice also, the price per room was as expected in this places and the location was just perfect. The thing however they need to urgently improve is the continental breakfast they provide, I think rather than... More

We stayed for one night. The guest house is clean, comfortable, the shower is pretty good and there was coffee, tea and biscuits in the room. I found the bed to be extremely comfortable and the pillows just perfect, so I enjoyed my sleep a lot! We decided not to bother with breakfast the next morning and enjoyed relaxing in... More

All in all the guesthouse is overpriced for what you get. We stayed two nights in the twinroom on the hingehst floor - Not recommended. The baathroom is pretty old and the water tab falling apart. The room is not decorated besides one tiny picture and has rather old and cheap furniture. The advertised tower view is only seeable by... More
