The family room was a great value for our family of four after a long day on the ferry. The room was comfy and surprisingly quiet for being right on a main road. The owners were extremely kind to our children. The lounge is comfortable. The family room gave a good amount of space for the four of us. The... More

Discovered this place to stay in Oban either side of an island hop. Attentive staff, comfortable room and tasty breakfast. Convenient location, easy walking distance into town and ferry terminal. Would highly recommend!

Nice clean room near the train station if wanting to take an early train the next morning. We had to leave early so owner left us a continental breakfast. Very tasty and accommodating. Extra charge for credit card is only negative.

Hello Folks, Thank you for taking the time to write this review for us even although it is positive and negative. It is never ending keeping up with a Guest House and you financially cannot do everything, so you have to prioritise. Last year we put triple glazing into all the upstair rooms. The year before that we refurbished our... More

We've stayed here many times and have never been disappointed. This time we brought 2 Canadian friends - their first B&B experience and they were totally blown away with the quality of the whole experience. It's great to have a lounge and outside deck to sit and relax in the evening. Very friendly owner and staff members. Yummy breakfast with... More

The owner was most welcoming and friendly. The room was good and of a decent size. Ample parking was available at the rear of the building. Breakfast was good. The B&B is located only a short walk from the centre of Oban (including train station and harbour).

The room was neat,tidy and comfortable. I had I had four nights accommodation with a two night break in between . The host was most helpful in arranging to let me use the same room throughout particularly as I made the booking at relatively short notice. Breakfasts were excellent with plenty of choice. Very friendly and welcoming.
