We loved this place, what a gem. Carol and Paul are really lovely very freindly, very warm and welcoming. The house is directly on the front, overlooking the bay. Very comfortable room, comfy bed, small loo, and small shower. Breakfast was a real treat, fruit, cereal, porridge, and full breakfast. The house is lovely, and beautifully decorated. We liked the...

Great location, ask for sea view and you won't be disappointed. Lovely place and people,. Breakfast was lovely, plenty choice, only disappointment was we could only stay one night. Definitely be back.

I had a lovely stay here with my good friend. The location is right along the water so you get a beautiful view. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Our room was just as I expected it to be, cute, quaint and cozy. The beds were SO comfortable and I loved the decor in the bathroom. I only had...

Carol and Paul and their staff are such wonderful people. They take great care of their place and do everything to ensure your visit is a pleasant one. Our room had a fantastic seaside view and the walk into the town center along seaside was roughly a 1/2 mile, just about right to get the appetite whetted or burn off...

The hotel is lovely with a brilliant view (well worth taking a room with a view!). We were comfortable, welcomed and very happy with our holiday. Carol and Paul were very friendly and great hosts. Hope to go back one day.

The Alltavona was wonderful - lovely helpful hosts, great location, delicious breakfast, and help booking our next place. We didn't know the upcoming weekend was a bank weekend and were having a lot of trouble finding a place on line. Carol called a friend who happened to have one room left. Our hosts really provided extra care in a number...

I feel horrible! Three month have gone by since I visited Oban and stayed at Alltavona Guest House and I couldn't find time to write my review. How unthankful of me, but I will do my best to correct it: The first impression I got from the Alltavona was the lovely little front garden which distinguishes it from the other...

We had a nice stay for one night in this beautiful b&b. After a short friendly welcome, we got our room in the second floor with view over Oban Bay. The room was big enough for a couple and had all needed facilities. It is a short walk past the sea to the inner city of Oban with restaurants and...

I booked Alltavona initially as it was the only availability on less than a months notice, but I will absolutely be returning. Alltavona is less than a 10 minute coastal walk to "downtown" Oban or less than 5 sterling for a taxi if it's raining. The beds are some of the most comfortable I've experienced, and the breakfast is excellent....
