High Cliff Guest House
Ranked #16 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We stayed at High Cliff for 4 nights (10 Aug to 14), the welcome we received could not have been warmer. The house is immaculate, from the moment we arrived we felt relaxed and at home. The beds are comfortable, the location is quiet which made for a good night's sleep. Star attraction - Maureen's breakfasts. You would be hard pressed to find better in a top class hotel, the choice and quality was first class, order the night before and your food is freshly cooked, served in the lovely dining room. When we go to Oban again we will look no further and go back to High Cliff. Best wishes to Maureen and Mike for the future. The location is good and there is off road parking, just a 10 minute walk to the harbour and town centre. Maureen had some good information on places to visit and to eat out.

Taken together it is difficult to flaw High Cliff. It's obviously maintained by someone who is passionate about hosting. A great deal of thought has gone into decorating the rooms. The highlight of the stay was breakfast. Served in a sumptuously decorated dining room, around a large beautifully adorned dining table. It has to be experienced to be believed. If I was pushed to find flaws, well, some might find the room we stayed in a bit small (but there were larger rooms), and the pull chain flush on our toilet was a bit iffy. I would recommend it here.

My son and I stayed at High Cliff and were very impressed! Maureen was incredibly warm and friendly an we greatly enjoyed our 2 night stay! Maureen had a bag all ready for us before our early morning trip filled with muffins and a packed lunch for our excursion. I can't say enough about our positive experience. Dogs were great and super friendly! Room was very comfortable with tea, shortbread and chocolates. Super comfortable! Only problem is that now my son is dying for a glitter toilet seat! :). A must stay when you go to Oban!

Here everything works. Owner is very friendly and goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and important as a guest. Excellent service and breakfast. Decorations might not be for everybody, but a couple of days of glitz and glam will hurt noone. Close to the town centre as well.

No idea about other comments but despite the opulence the decor is tasteful & clearly high quality. Having china cups & cut glass wine glasses as well as chocolate mints & luxury shortbread in the rooms was fabulous. Maureen is a lovely hostess who informed us of the dogs prior to booking - they are delightful & the place is pristine - no hairs anywhere. The choice of fresh fruit on the morning was unique and the choice and quality of cooked breakfast better than many high priced hotels. Maureen also recommended excellent restaurants & was a genuinely lovely lady. We welcome an opportunity to return & my two sons with partners in tow all said what a lovely place it was to stay. Maureen even made hot chocolate for my youngest son who said it was excellent quality. Take no notice of any derogatory comments - it is lovely, fairly priced & easy walking distance into Oban.

We stayed here for 4 nights. We had our little son as well. Myself and my husband had a great time visiting Oban for the first time. Our stay here was just perfect. Maureen gave us a very warm hospitality throughout our stay. The place is well beautifully done and each room has its own theme and matched well accordingly. The breakfast had a good variety from cereals, fruits, juices, and you will also be given cooked breakfast whatever you desire. There are 3 dogs but you will hardly hear their voice. My 3 year old son loved playing with them.
We will certainly be back once my son grows little old and would recommend it to friends & others for a pleasant stay.

Maureen was very welcoming on arrival offering tips of where to eat and places to see, as it was our first visit to Oban. The room although small was tastefully decorated everything toning in, with all the expected facilities, very comfortable, the bathroom was very clean and of a high standard. The breakfast was a good hearty breakfast and Maureen would cook you almost anything you requested if you asked the night before, very obliging. A very enjoyable stay and would definitely return and recommend to friends and family.
