Spent a night here when we drove down from Inverness to oban last month. What a great drove! Anyway, we arrived pretty late at our guesthouse as we made several stops along the way. The room was well kept, comfortable and very clean. Better maintained than many expensive hotels I have stayed in. Location was great - less than five... More

Mary & Joe Hill have put together a cozy and warm and well-appointed B&B. Mu wife really liked the one and they were very helpful with restaurant suggestions. With the smallness of the town, it was great to have a place to park, which is no small detail.

In our tour through Scotland this B&B was the only original one that we stayed, Mary was very friendly and the breakfast was very nice. The situation very convenient. Nice choice for Oban, a nice town.

Stayed here 5th & 6th July. As with previous reviews, both Mary & Joe were very friendly & extremely helpful with tips for eating places etc. Mary recommended Piazza on the Tuesday night which was fab (Best to book in advance as it was packed) & as we just fancied good old fish & chips after a wet day on...

Stayed for four nights. The room was clean with en-suite, which was also clean with everything you would need. There was a TV, a tray with coffee, tea etc. Free WiFi and the location was very quiet. There was a car park at the rear for four cars and it was only a 10 min walk into the centre of... More

Visited Oban in June 2016 and what a wonderful B&B. My wife is expecting and the owners went out of their way to make sure she was well looked after. Lovely comfortable clean rooms with our own bathroom. Good selection of tea and coffee available in the room, to warm up on those proper chilly Scottish days. Breakfast was lovely,... More

Mary and Joe were very helpful, even before we arrived. Our room was comfortable and clean and nicely decorated. Gramarvin is within easy walking distance of the Train Station and Bus depot, which are just off of Oban's main commercial street. We were pleased with our decision to stay there.

This guest house is conveniently situated a couple of minutes walk from the water. We stayed a night here and were thrilled with our lovely light filled room, gorgeous bathroom, and friendly and helpful host. We also enjoyed the best breakfast we've had so far in Scotland.

If you are coming to Oban and want Scottish hospitality at its best, then Gramarvin Guest House won't disappoint. As good as any classy hotel, if not better, top class accommodation, well located, spotlessly clean and modern. Mary and Joe wouldn't disappoint Alex Polizzi in any shape of form. Would recommend highly and if I get chance to return, will... More
