4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

Just A short walk from all amenities, with off road parking. The warm welcome carried right through to the cosy bedroom, comfy bed and a delicious breakfast served with the utmost attention to detail.

The first thing that struck us about Kathmore was how clean and presentable it is. You may find B&Bs in Oban which are better located, more stylish, have stunning views, boutique décor and Super-Queen-sized beds, but I doubt you will find one which is cleaner or better maintained. There was not a speck of dust anywhere, the bathrooms must be... More

I concur with all the previous reviewer's comments and would add that Morven and Keith are lovely people Our room - 7 - was a reasonably sized twin with a large bathroom; all spotlessly clean. All sorts of amenities were supplied, way beyond what you would expect for the price - even down to bath robes. Breakfast was very generous... More

The guest house is situated near Oban town centre within easy walking distance of the shops, train station and ferry terminal. There is adequate parking at the property. The ensuite room was comfortable and although on a main road there was little traffic noise. Breakfast was first class. This is a property that can be recommended.

The best Guest House I have stayed in my holidays. Good place, good price and good breakfast. The reception was fantastic. The owner was very kind to us. Good parking for cars. No doubt, if one day we return to Oban, we try to book again this Guest House.

Kathmore is perfectly located- only a 10 minute walk away from the main street of Oban. The location allows you to recuperate, away from the crowds, after a long day of sightseeing. There is plentiful parking at the back of the house. The rooms are decorated modestly, but very comfortable and clean. My room did not have an ensuite bathroom,... More
