Whilst on our honeymoon we spent two nights in Oban and chose this B&B because of it's great ratings - we haven't been disappointed. Excellent customer service - the first night we arrived at midnight - very spacious room, super yummy breakfast in a great location right next to the sea!! We were over the moon and will happily return...

After looking at lots of Oban hotels and guest houses I found this one, mainly picked for its parking admittedly but it was the best choice! Plenty of space to park yes (with bikes on back of car) but above all that the hotel was extremely welcoming and comfortable. We stayed in one of the studio rooms, which was huge....

Highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast for your next stay in Oban. Right on the waterfront and a short walk to town. Went out of their way to make sure our stay in Oban was great. Room arrangements were perfect for our family of 5 (three older children), they called to secure a table for us at Eeusk for dinner...

I've made a few visits to Oban over the last few months & didn't fancy staying in the centre. Glenhigh was ideal. I was happy with my stay - welcoming, good situ, warm, comfortable & restful. I had a room with a side view of the coast, which was £95 B&B per night & felt about £15-20 above what I'd...

And it's own car park. Nice walk along the seafront to town. Excellent cooked breakfast with interesting options though I don't remember seeing porridge. . Bedroom was at the back annexe, one of three, with poor sound insulation - hollow floors and walls I guess. . Can listen to snores of neighbour. Maybe rooms in main house are better. However...
