We stopped off for one night and were made most welcome. Although this is more like a restaurant with rooms ( you have to go outwith the main premises to get to your bedroom) the bedrooms are very comfortable, and the loch side rooms probably have super views. The food was well above average, and the service was friendly and... More

Just spent 2 nights and loved it! They could not have been more accommodating; we were married the weekend before and had managed to get the last available room. When we arrived they advised that another, quieter room was available if we wanted to see it and I'm so glad they did as it was perfect! We ate in the... More

We came in late, ten past nine PM, after most of Oban restaurants denied us a table because they were too crowded by August's tourists. Not only they re-opened the kitchen for us, but everyone was kind and warm and the food was very good. Burgers were excellent, very genuine and well served with tasty salad. Position is nice too,...

We were looking forward to meeting up for a meal before we set out on a sailing holiday in early June. The position of the Wide Mouthed Frog is fantastic, looking over Dunstaffnage Marina, and we'd eaten there several times previously. When making the booking by phone a couple of weeks beforehand, I was passed to the manager, who explained... More

Disappointing venue. I was travelling with my daughter and this was by far the worst B&B we stayed at. We stayed in room 8 and the noise kept us awake all night. We left incredibly exhausted. The bed linen was itchy too - possibly the detergent used? The bathroom smelt like a poorly cleaned public loo too and really needs... More

Very quaint restaurant part of a hotel on the marina. There is outside seating and there is an indoor bar. The staff were very friendly and even let us use their phone for a local phone call. The food was very good!

My wife and I stopped in for lunch at the neat little restaurant. The staff was very friendly and the food was very satisfying. It was a rainy cool day so we had some cups of tea and dessert to help warm up our day.

Nice food but the owner was drunk, rude,aggressive and even managed to drop a plate on the floor he was so hammered. When questioned about the starter she became aggressive, so much so that she made me change my attitude. I was only pointing out that the starter was not as advertised when she became arrogant and rude making me... More

Maybe we caught it on a bad day. This review is merely a reflection of an off chance stop for a coffee to see if we would like to book for the evening. The tables outside were dirty and of the two lattes we ordered there was probably a quarter of a shot of coffee between them. Basically luke warm... More
