We had decided to stay for two nights in Oban and this guest house was a great choice. Conveniently located on the harbour front we had a great view over the water. Colin and Frances are friendly and welcoming hosts. Great breakfast, the option of whiskey and cream with porridge was novel and tasty. Easily recommended.

From booking to departure, I thought Kilchrenan House was a class act. Frances was helpful, diligent and full of good advice when I made my booking via email and phone. There was no confusion for us about arrival times, parking or payment. Both Frances and Colin have a warm, charming character. Their friendliness was evident from their first response to... More

We had a lovely time in this charming Bed and Breakfast which feels more like a small hotel. Colin and Frances looked after us really well, offering helpful advice and making us feel at home. The breakfast is just great and served with a smile! Highly recommended!

This charming bed and breakfast is located right on the waterfront with spectacular views over Oban Harbour. Our friendly host, Colin, greeted us warmly upon arrival, and since dinnertime was approaching, quickly provided us with a rundown of the best local restaurants, together with a offer to call in a booking at the one that appealed most. After a complimentary... More

This was the 6th time I have stayed at Kilchrenan House. Colin and Frances run the place with a friendly and positive attitude and have great knowledge of the local area - we got some very useful tips on possible places to visit. There are a range of rooms, and the ones facing out to the bay offer great views... More

Yet another lovely stay at Kilchrenan House. Frances and Colin are so friendly and helpful. I cannot understand the recent review by some guy from South Africa complaining about their attitude and about the rooms. We have stayed several times and every room was delightful. The breakfasts are well cooked and varied and service is flawless. Sometimes things go slightly... More

Great breakfast and the landlords Colin and Frances were wonderfully welcoming and accomodated all our needs. Lots of local knowledge. In a nice part of Oban, a stone's throw away from the nicest pub in... More

We stayed in Kilchrenan house for one night only in July, and we loved it. The hostess is very friendly and very helpful. When we arrived, we received a very warming welcome with local liquor. She even helped us with the reservation in the most popular restaurant in town. The room is very well maintained, very clean and comfortable, with... More

Spent two nights here in early August and would strongly recommend Kilchrenan House for those visiting Oban. The B&B is in a lovely location on Oban's waterfront, with views across the water to the nearby islands from both the breakfast room and those rooms in the front of the building. The location is nice as well, as it's a short... More
