We like this guest house partly because it is very comfortable and welcoming and because it faces onto the sea front, with just the road between you and the shore. You can watch the boats and ferries coming and going. We had a room at the top of the house, but the stairs are nice and wide. Our room was... More

From the supplied bath robe and slippers to the wonderful choice of breakfast, this place has it all. The owner has an obvious passion for keeping her patrons happy and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble. Great view of the ocean, handy for the shops, the folly or even the ferry to Mull. Give it a visit. A "full belly"... More

We stayed here for one night and can highly recommend it. As for the previous review....I don't understand it because the very first comment I made upon waking up was what a great sleep I'd had and how comfortable the bed had been. The room offered glorious sea views with every comfort catered for even down to a welcoming tray... More

Iona was wonderful, and we had a beautiful room overlooking the water that was spacious and comfortable. Had great breakfast one morning, and got take away another morning when we had early island tour. Great location for getting into/out of town. Struggled a bit with WiFi reception. Would definitely stay here again.

Quaint place to stay, nice scenery, pleasant staff. Only real issue is our bed was very, very, very tired. We laid awake all night feeling he coils jabbing us in the back. Never experienced such a worn out, overused bed in a hotel. As our main intention for staying here was to get some sleep, We went away very disappointed.

We stayed for 2 nights 25/26th June 2016. The rooms were big and spacious with fabulous views to the front overlooking the bay. Iona, Gilbert and the staff were very friendly and the breakfasts were superb. Would return there again.

What a nice place. The entry hall is very grand, the staircase beautiful and wide. My room was large. The owner had given me a double since I was staying two nights. Not enough electrical plugs but that seems to be true everywhere. The bathroom was a good size. Only a shower but that was fine for me. Wifi was... More

We had three nights at Glenrigh and thoroughly enjoyed everything about it, lovely room, comfy bed, spacious and very clean and stunning views over the bay. Breakfast was excellent, choice like I have never seen before, and plenty of it. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else if we return to Oban, Iona is an excellent host, nothing too much trouble...

This is a good quality B&B with goon room facilities and free wifi. The breakfasts are first class. There is free parking. This B&B is towards the higher end of the price scale. On a wet and cold evening its a bit of a jaunt to walk into town but its a location we'd use again.
