The Guesthouse is freshly and nicely renovated. It is easy to reach by car and it has a parking. Still, it is close to the center of Oban, restaurants and McCaig Tower. Each room has a nice lay out and good quality furniture. Maybe it is useful to know: the rooms have en suite shower room with toilette, something not... More

Great experience we had staying here. Morven (the owner) was quite welcoming and made us feel at home right from the start. The house has a nice terrace with a couple of wooden benches and a table, overlooking the bay area. It's also close from the town center, a 10-minute walk down from the house. The breakfast was tasty but... More

We chose this as a stop over before our ferry, the name rang a bell and we were sure we had stayed here four years ago. When we pulled up we had. The lady of the house is lovely and gave us a very warm welcome, she remembered us from our previous bike, a red Ducati. The stay was just... More

I'm a little late in writing this review, as we stayed in June 2016. Ask for directions prior to arriving, since they served us well. We had two rooms, one for my wife and I and another for my in-laws. A bottle of wine was placed in my in-laws room for their anniversary, which was a very nice touch. The... More

Stayed here for one night on our way to the Isle of Mull and would suggest that it's the best B&B we've stayed in. Morven made us welcome from the minute we arrived until the time we left the following morning. The location is ideal as it is within a 5 minute walk of the town centre by following the... More

Stayed one night on our way to the outer isles. Morven was so welcoming when we arrived and was great through out our stay. The house is very handy for walking into the centre of Oban (it is up the hill). There is plenty of parking as well. We had an excellent breakfast which set us up for the day.... More

We stayed for the second year in a row in this place. We stayed in the Regency room with a lovely view overlooking the Oban bay. The landlady is very nice and the house is perfectly situated a five minutes walk from the harbour. We had five lovely nights and can really recommend Hawthornbank.

Of the 8 hotels I stayed at during my Scotland trip, the room here had the warmest ambience. The owners were gracious and took care of our needs. Oban is a pretty town. We wish we had more time just to hang out.
