Reviewed May 15, 2013

I stayed at Ayres Ghuest house for the night of 8th May 2013.

Room and ensuite were very clean, bed was comfortable, lots of teas/coffees in room, the staff were very helpful, good continental breakfast (I went for an early ferry so had to forego the full cooked breakfast), excellent value for money for a single traveller ( single rooms often seem overpriced), well located for centre of town and less than fifteen mins easy walk to ferries (even with heavy rucksack!

Will definitely stay there again when next in Oban

Decided on booking a nights stay here, whilst we visited oban, having read all the great comments.
Have to say I cannot fault the place. Was reasonably priced. Twin room was spacious enough and both the room and ensuite were very clean.
Was peaceful and comfortable.
Decor was traditional for a Victorian guest houses.
Room had all the facilities of free wifi which had excellent service, kettle with a selection of tea/coffee (shame about the uht milk, although I am sure we would havr been given fresh milk of we had asked) and a freeview tv.
Would definitely stay again and would reccommend.

I stayed for 2 nights in April. The hotel is located on the waterfront and has uninterupted views accross the bay towads the islands.

The room I had was quite spacious for a single, and had an en-suite with shower. The room had a flat screen TV with freeview and there is free WIFI for guests which worked excellently(no loss of signal despite it being an old building).

Breakfast was served from 0730 and was excellent, cooked breakfast as well as the standard range of cereals and fruit. The staff present at breakfast were attentive and nothing seemed too much trouble for them.

I will certainly say here again and would recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: Rooms 3,4,and 5 are on the first floor and look out accros the bay.

We stayed for two nights in April. Our room had lovely views out to sea. It was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Internet access and flat screen TV were a bonus! The breakfast was nice and all the staff were very attentive.
Very good value for money. Would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Oban on a budget!

We were disappointed not to see the whale though.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front have sea views.

Great location, comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast, warm welcome. I would choose this place if I was staying in Oban again. In fact one of the rooms we booked had a spectacular view across the harbour as well.

Have stayed many times and enjoyed everything about this lovely Guest House. It feels like coming home each time. The view is amazing when the sun shines however even when the weather is not great I still like watching the ferry come into the bay. Already booked for September.
