Couldn't have asked for anything more - The owners couldn't have been more accommodating. They had a lot of suggestions for short/medium/long walks, restaurant suggestions and day trips and very friendly. The room was great, and the location was a short walk from the town. Really nice place!

This is a lovely place to stay, very comfortable with wonderfully friendly hosts, Anna and Simon, who always go the extra mile for their guests. Excellent breakfast, beautifully cooked. The room at the front of the house has a beautiful view over Oban harbour.

Good room with view over Oban harbour and the islands. Comfortable room with large bed, small, slightly damp smelling shower room with a pathetic shower. Wash basin in the bedroom. Good breakfast with reasonable choice. Friendly, helpful owners. Small car park with curving steps down to front door so might be a problem if mobility is an issue. 10 minute... More

Anna and Simon, our hosts at the Old Manse B&B, we're so gracious, helpful and interested in our having a great stay...they couldn't do enough for us. Situated on the side of a hill overlooking the town of Oban, we had a spectacular view of the harbor and their pretty garden with rhododendrons and other bloomers. The short ten minute... More

The house is located on the hillside overlooking the bay and has a lovely garden. The rooms were large and the bathrooms modern. The breakfasts were beautifully prepared and Anna and Simom were friendly, knowledgeable about Oban and sights to see and restaurants and pubs to visit. We cannot say enough positive things about the hosts and their home.

We stayed here for 3 nights and had the most awesome time. Simon and Anna are incredible nice hosts and they are preparing a really great breakfast. The location of the house is indeed a plus. Just 5 minutes downhill to the town centre. The room was also very nice and quite big (compared to other B&Bs). Again... We had... More

We (couple) stayed at the Old Manse for 5 days last week (end of May) - we had the most brilliant room facing the isle of Mull, we could sit in bed and watch the sun go down over the sea and island. The room was spacious and the shower room clean and beautifully appointed. Tea, coffee and biscuits were... More

Delightful hosts. Nothing was too much trouble - i have gluten and dairy intolerance and this was not a problem. Great room overlooking town and harbour. A touch of class and excellent value. Easy walk into town with lots of good restaurants.
