Stopped here en route to getting the ferry to mull and Iona. Agree with the previous reviews, everything about it was perfect especially the wide choice of breakfast that was beautifully presented in a lovely room overlooking Oban.

A delightful B&B, most hospitable host, lovely location and great breakfasts. Outstanding. Thomas is a very caring and considerate host and many visitors return to this B&B. Parking is right outside on a very quiet attractive street. would definitely return.

Really glad to stay here. Such a lovely welcome from Thomas and Isabel, great pot of tea with shortbread and amazing breakfasts! Comfy bed and clean room with nice touches of art. Local produce is championed here with a genuine enthusiasm for making recommendations for things to see & experience in what is a gem of the west coast.

We stayed here after a week cycling round the highlands, Thomas was so welcoming and accommodating to our late check in. Such a well presented and furnished b + b with excellent attention to detail (local chocolates by bed etc!) Exceptional breakfast using local produce, the highlight being the black pudding! Would happily pay a lot more to stay here.

We had a lovely welcome by the owner Thomas. The room had a lovely large bed which was comfy. The room also had two easy chairs to sit on, which was a lovely as you never have anywhere to sit other than on the bed. The bathroom was spacious. Everything was nice and clean.

We stayed for three nights in the Failte B&B in Oban. One room with a fantasic view over the harbor and bay, the other to the backside garden. Both rooms were very clean with good matresses and newly renovated bathrooms. Breakfast was very good too, one could choose between different dishes, amongst others Scottish Breakfast and scrambled eggs with or... More

Thanks so much to Thomas and Isabel. I received a warm welcome in this lovely old b&b. The room was spotless, there was a little fridge with fresh milk for coffee, and nice little touches like a razor, chocolates, and the offer of shortbread. There is some interesting original art and lovely fresh lilies in the hall. Breakfast was superb;... More

My husband and I stayed at Failte for one night as we passed through Oban. Thomas was incredibly welcoming, carried our bags up to our beautiful, bright double room and offered tea and shortbread right off the bat. Can't complain about that! The bed and the room were very comfortable and we wished we'd stayed a little longer to enjoy... More

We stayed for three nights in May 2016. First night in a pretty small room on the main level, then in a much larger room with a view for the next two nights. We really liked the bigger room. Clean, quiet, comfortable bed, always available street parking, free WIFi, and a very good breakfast. It's a bit of a hoof... More
