The owner is kindness itself, and the breakfast was delicious and cooked to order. The room was comfortable and the tea tray was very welcome after a soggy drive from Skye and bringing our bags in. Nice distance to town, convenient parking. We would stay again.

I am surprised about some of the negtive reviews. What a find at this price bracket. Clean, welcoming and great location 10 mins walk into town, and near Tesco. The owner is a great Scottish landlady. The breakfast was to die for. She even cooked me breakfast at 7am on Sunday so I could go off early. 5 Star Guest... More

We had a reservation for 3 nights. There were dirty beds and toilets. We did not have check in because It was not hygienic. Hotel does not want to return £ 400 we paid. We had order by lastminute.com but they also do not want to recognize our claim. I will never stay there again. Terrible service and terrible accomodation.

We checked into our B&B room -- nice though typically small. Had an electric blanket that was a delight to sleep on (not under), since it was stormy and rainy that night. The breakfast was lovely. We didn't stay since we were rushing to get to the Scottish Islands, but it was a nice stop in Oban. The town was... More

Good points are the car parking and access to the sea front. Down side for us was the size of the room, extremely small barely enough room to walk around the bed. Bathroom was also small, tv did not work - in fairness I did not report this as we were only there one night and we ate out Breakfast... More

The lady who runs this bnb is very kind and helpful, which is why I am giving it 5 stars. They have off road parking and she let me leave my car there while I went off cycling around the Hebrides. Also my ferry wasn't til 1pm the following day and she let me check out late. The breakfast is... More

This property is located about a 15 minute walk from the centre of Oban, and about 5 minutes from various supermarkets like a Tesco, Lidl and Aldi. There seemed to be ample car parking although pedestrians be aware that there is no pavement on the side of the road the property is on, so you have to cross the road... More

Not the nicest place I have stayed, the rooms are very outdated an not very clean. I found clumps of hair and hairpins on the floor. The wifi doesn't reach the bedrooms at the end of the hall like the one we had. The hosts are polite but don't go out of their way for anything. I have seen worse... More

Myself and two friends stayed at this lovely little guest house. It was a 3bed room which was very spacious. The shower worked well with plenty of water. The lady who runs it was very pleasant and helpful. She catered for us getting up at different times for breakfast each morning. Breakfast was plentiful, cereal, yoghurt, toast and cooked breakfast... More
