The Manor House, a superb Georgian House with Restaurant built in 1780 by the 5th Duke of Argyll, offers spectacular views over Oban Bay and the Isles of Kerrera, Lismore and Mull. Our owner run guesthouse combines the manor’s understated but elegant appearance, the traditional values of Scottish hospitality and a highly personalised service. We are here to make your stay a most pleasant and memorable one! Our guesthouse combines excellent and friendly service with the charm of a listed building rich in heritage and character. The Manor House is particularly known for its beautifully restored dining room, which is open to guests every evening. Afternoons can be enjoyed on the terrace with majestic views of Oban Bay and beyond. Alternatively, you can take a stroll through the garden with its Georgian-inspired layout, keeping the spirit of a naturalistic park and pleasure ground alive. In front of the building you can find our private waterfront access and discover the old oyster bed. The open fire in the drawing room invites you to indulge in the opulence of the early years of the house whilst drinking afternoon tea accompanied by small delights. Find us in the adjoining bar, the perfect place for a wee dram to round off an unforgettable day. All our common areas face the garden and offer stunning views over Oban Bay, the adjacent islands, the mountains of Morvern and the Isle of Mull. Our period-style bedrooms are tastefully decorated, and all have ensuite facilities. Oban is easily accessible by many modes of transport. The Manor House is located on the south shore of Oban Bay in an enviable position with gardens accessing the sea and only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre, the ferry, bus and rail terminals. Despite its small size, Oban is the largest town in Argyll and The Isles and is known as the ‘Gateway to the Isles’ and the 'Seafood Capital of Scotland'. The most outstanding feature of Oban is McCaig’s Tower, the Colosseum-lookalike, which stands above the town overlooking the bustling fishing port. Testament to its Gaelic heritage, Oban is considered the home of the Royal National Mod, first held here in 1892, a festival of Scottish Gaelic literature, song, art and culture. Annual Highland Games, the Argyllshire Gathering, are also held in the town. The Manor House is an owner run guesthouse supported by a dedicated team with strong values. We are proud to be a part of its tremendous heritage and understand the importance of preserving the taste and style of this elegant Georgian house as an integral element of the experience offered. At the same time, we are committed to protecting and preserving our environment. Bowing to heritage and nature, we let this tastefully maintained and radiant manor take centre stage and aim to make it a comfort zone that fits with our commitment to sustainability, sourcing regional products and social integration in Oban, Argyll and Bute and the Western Islands. We are here for you. This is our mission. It drives us every day and is where we take our motivation from. We, the owners, have spent two and a half decades travelling and living around the globe before settling in Scotland, which we found to be one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Scotland's breath-taking landscapes, rich culture and heritage has worked its charm on us and will hopefully do the same to you, our guests! You are invited to contact us prior to, during and after your trip – we are only too happy to assist, and can do so in English, French or German. We value the benefits of being a local business. We aim to promote and support products and services from local sources within and beyond our business. By doing so, we work in close and trusted partnership with the finest local producers and suppliers, emphasising fairness and sustainability. Excellent quality, freshness of local produce and integrity of the source are a fundamental part of the dining experience we create. Many of our producers steeped in local tradition can be visited while you explore the area, offering rich insights into the customs of the region and bringing you to some of the most amazing places in Scotland.

Have just returned after staying Friday and Saturday night at the Manor. We had such a lovely welcome from Daniel and Simon when we arrived and enjoyed a few drinks in the sunshine. Dinner was 4 courses and was delightful, second night we had different choices which was much appreciated as a trip to Oban is not complete without the consumption of scallops! Thoroughly enjoyed and we will definitely be back. I wish Daniel and his team all the best in their new venture. Jamie and Bev, New Galloway

We booked the Manor House overnight for exclusive use and held our small wedding ceremony (15 guests) there in June 2021 - I believe we were the first wedding to take place there under the new ownership of Daniel and Beatrice. The whole weekend was incredible - the owners are so friendly, genuine and accommodating. They made us feel completely at home - even kindly bringing us cold drinks the next afternoon after we had checked out and were enjoying the sun in the garden (we couldn't bring ourselves to leave!) They really went above and beyond! The setting, right on Oban bay, is absolutely stunning - I can't imagine a more beautiful place to get married (especially if the sun shines - which it fortunately did for us!) The food served in the restaurant was delicious and always presented beautifully - all of our guests commented on this. And Simon, who helped us with all the arrangements with the wedding, was an absolute star from start to finish - no request felt like an inconvenience and he was there to help us throughout. Oh and the rooms are very tastefully decorated and comfortable too, many with views over the bay! I throroughly recommend a stay or even holding a special event at the Manor House - we will definitely be back!

We made a detour to return here, last stayed here in September, and wanted to experience the great food and comfort again. It was just as good as before, so came as a surprise to hear it had new owners. They are doing a lovely job of keeping the Manor House good reputation going. They have used the time closed to touch up and renovate the one or two previously tired areas, it’s kept it’s country house hotel feel. Will certainly detour again to stay here.

We only stayed one night in this beautiful manor prior to catching an early ferry and we had a lovely stay. A wonderful warm welcome from the owners, Beatrice and Daniel. We had a fantastic four course dinner- really lovely locally sourced and locally foraged food and we enjoyed our drinks on the terrace overlooking the harbour. The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped. Even the dog was made to feel welcome!

Came across this quite by chance and oh my what a find!!! Lovely welcome from owners Daniel and Beatrice, had no idea how wonderful our time here would be... Rooms and areas absolutely spotless, high quality bedding, toiletries etc. The terrace with the most spectacular view and varied gin menu was wonderful, Daniel even provided us with blankets to make us comfortable! The dining experience was an amazing and taste sensation, the chef is very talented and the plates served were a work of art. Lovely service at dinner and breakfast. We can't wait to return and wish The Manor House all the success it deserves. Go go go you will not be disappointed. Allan and Angela McCreath
