Nice house in a great location on Oban esplanade. Easy to find & park. Friendly welcome at a very busy check in time. Had a sea view room on the top floor which was quite small but well appointed and comfortable. The bed was comfortable and the shower fine. Breakfast was very good. I'd book again but request a larger... More

We stayed at this B&B on a whisky tour. The location is great and the owners are very friendly. The breakfast was one of the best we had on our trip. However, the bedrooms and bathrooms are very small and just not comfortable. The bedroom furniture is oversized and hard to walk around without constantly bumping into the furniture.

I am sorry you found your bedroom and bathroom small but each have been graded by visit Scotland to achieve a four star rating. The other room in which you stayed has a huge bathroom with freestanding bath and the bedroom is also not small. You had reserved a side facing room perhaps if you were to return a front... More

Booked two rooms for our short stay, one had a lovely sea view, and the other was next to the dining room on the ground floor. The bedrooms were both a good size, beds extremely comfortable, unfortunately we both experienced minor issues with the furnishings, we didnt have a wardrobe to hang our clothes and had to hang them on...

We stayed here for just one night before getting the ferry for Mull, but would happily have stayed much longer. Alltavona is right on the seafront just beyond the cathedral so well within walking distance of the town. We were given a warm welcome and shown to our room on the second floor, which although it didn't have a sea... More

This is one of the nicest guest houses we have ever stayed in. Carol gave us a lovely warm Scottish welcome and showed us to our room which had a spectacular view of Oban harbour. Everything we could wish for was provided and room very spacious and tastefully decorated. It was very pleasant sitting in the garden enjoying a complimentary... More
