A very comfortable room, a lovely breakfast, the most efficient shower I have ever encountered, a very nice bathroom, friendly and helpful host. And a mere ten minutes walk into centre of Oban. Triple glazing worked very well, I couldn't hear the traffic at all. I would book in again when I am in Oban.

Oh it always makes me happy when my guests have had a good time and enjoyed themselves. We are very well positioned to walk to the centre, there are some B&B's up towards the tower with very steep hills to climb at least we are on the flat. It would be great to see you return to our door. Thank... More

Our room was clean and equipped with all necessities (kettle, complimentary coffee/tea, shampoo, towels etc.) The bed was queen size and comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and... More

To start with the basics, the room and bath are impeccably clean. While not fancy, there are lots of lovely amenities that make a stay nicer: e.g. nice deep tub, bathrobe, and a lounge to relax in at the end of the day. Food and service were great. The proprietor went out of her way to pack us a nice... More

The first night of our five-day Highland tour, we stayed in the same B&B as our guide. A ten minute walk from downtown, it was pleasant and the room was nice, breakfast was good. Not knowing Oban, when we walked back from dinner downtown, we got lost for a bit but eventually found our way back
