We stayed for two nights in July (room 1 and 11) at the Kilchrenan House. Breakfast was incredible and rooms were beautiful and comfortable. What made this B&B stand out, however, was the wonderful, personal service from the owners Colin and Frances. If you are in Oban, definitely book this place!!

Booked the Kilchrenan House last minute through Booking.com in order to visit Oban for an overnight break. Check in at the Kilchrenan is between 3pm and 7pm and we found a warm welcome from Frances, the owner. Our room was well furnished with all the usual accompaniments, tea/coffee making facilities, toiletries etc, flat screen tv. The room and en suite... More

We have just returned home from another nice stay at Kilchrenan, having stayed here several times in the past, although I have not written a review about our stay before. Parking the car was no problem as the spaces are all marked out so that everyone can park within the grounds which is a real bonus. Our favourite room is... More

This is the nicest B&B we stayed in. Colin is a great host and the breakfast was delicious with very high quality ingredients. There are wonderful old furniture pieces and everything was clean. We had room 15 on the ground floor with a spectacular view and a couch positioned to enjoy it. The internet was not good.

Found this guest house quite late but glad we did. We were in room 6 which was large with a 50" tv. Bed was comfy, everything was clean and a great view over the water. Breakfast was great including my favourite Stornaway black pudding. We asked for a few additional things which were provided with no quibble. The couple running... More

Booked two rooms, using an internet booking site, and arrived late in the afternoon. We were welcomed at the door by Colin and shown our rooms and instantly felt relaxed. Our front facing room with en-suite was on the ground floor overlooking the esplanade and the water. Beautifully decorated and furnished, clean and very comfortable - very happy. Following Colin's...

This was a very welcoming B&B where the owners, Colin and Frances, sat outside in the evening talking to their guests. We were on the 3rd floor (Room 9). It had a magnificent view over the harbour and was very comfortable. Downstairs in the foyer we could enjoy a whisky or sherry. The B&B is in an excellent position close... More
