Just returned from my first visit to Oban with my elderly mother & sister. Stayed at the Glenburnie. The owner & the staff were very friendly and the hotel was wonderful. Great location and wonderful views over the bay. I would highly recommend this hotel.

It couldn't have been a better week. April was early enough to miss any midges but the weather prospects were good. The locals said the weather was better than they'd had in a long time and we'd booked one of the sea-view rooms at the Glenburnie. After a hard day climbing on Staffa, or ascending McCaig's Tower, or visiting Castle... More

Gorgeous, Victorian, well loved guest house and it showed. Loved the decor, loved the service, loved the room and loved the breakfast. Spacious, comfortable, thoughtfully designed rooms. Little personal touches, such as shortbread in the room. There was a small number of chargeable snacks beside the tea making facilities ( this is a good touch if you've had a long... More

The room was comfortable, plenty of room for luggage, a nice bathroom, strong wifi and all that was good. Delicious breakfast to order in the morning with Mary and... More

Fresh, beautiful B&B on the water. Extremely friendly owners and staff with lots of good tips about the area and islands. Beautifully appointed rooms and common areas. Great value! We would definitely choose Glenburnie again next time we're in the area (which I hope won't be too far off - lots to see and do).
