A delightful traditional B and B in Oban. Located close to the centre with beautiful harbour views. Colin and Frances are delightful and really care for their guests. Full of useful information of things to see and do around Oban. The rooms are spacioys and clean, with an excellent selection for breakfast. Very homely and welcoming. Would thoroughly recommend.

With a ocean view during our walk the entire time! Our room had a fabulous sunset view as well. Kind folks, clean rooms, and delicious food! Thankful for... More

Family of 4 (2 adults and 2 teenagers) spent 3 nights at this lovely B&B. Breakfast was amazing (don't miss the porridge!!). Beds were super comfortable and rooms spacious and nicely furnished. Easy walk into town down the seaside esplanade. Owners are very gracious and helpful. Highly recommend!

Our first 2 days at Kilchrenan House were extraordinary. Room 15 was straight out of the past, with a fireplace, writing desk, and sofa with harbor view. The bed and bath, though, had all the modern conveniences. Frances is a funny and accommodating host. Breakfast was efficient, delicious, and filling. Our third night we had to move because of a...

We stayed in a twin room at the front of the old portion of the house on the 1st floor (2nd floor in US terms) with a beautiful view of the bay. The B&B is in a lovely stone Victorian on the waterfront within an easy 10 minute walk to the town center. The twin room was small but adequate... More
