We stayed 2 nights and were very impressed. They were very welcoming and friendly with helpful suggestions. Nice room, a bit small but comfortable. Excellent breakfast. A short drive to Oban and probably better off being away from the bustle of Oban

Stayed here for three nights. Excellent location near Oban . Our hostess Karen made sure we were comfortable and well fed - breakfast menu is so tempting. We all slept well in the beautifully appointed bedrooms and have put Grove House on our "must visit again" list.

We stayed at Grove house, Oban. This is a very nice house and one of two B&B’s we stayed at during our 8 day tour around Scotland where we would stay again. One very nice touch is that we were offered a small glass of wine and a hot flannel on arrival. The room was nicely appointed with a good... More

1st rate. Superb breakfast with charming host. Could not fault it. Easy parking either on the drive or on the road. Central location for touring and walking. Will go again. Friendly welcome from a charming Billie who does a great job looking after the house and once again the breakfast was top notch.
