“bed and breakfast with no breakfast”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

You could not get a better view and accomodations and location was fantastic ! No breakfast provided. Right by the peer and stations. Above s pub ehich can be a bit of an issue, so book your room near the back of the room.

Location was excellent, on main street close to harbour and restaurants. Owner was very accommodating, allowing us to check in on arrival before 12. Room was comfortable with excellent view of seafront. Bathroom was very very small but fine. Wireless was very fast, allowing streaming.

Quite pricey for guesthouse with no breakfast however owner did provide fresh coffee and breakfast bars in the morning which was an unexpected extra! No private car parking (which was noted on our booking) however free car park is very close (few minute drive and walk away) so really didn't cause much inconvenience.

Would stay again!

Friendly owner, great location, good value - what more do you want?! The en-suite room was comfortable and spacious and the bathroom clean and functional. The property is neat and well-maintained (although dated, like everything else in Scotland, which is part of its charm) and couldn't be closer to the local pubs and shops. Not top of the range but perfectly fine for the price and I'd be happy to stay there again.

Stayed at Ayres guesthouse for 5 nights with family and friends in September. All three ensuite rooms were spacious and very clean, with the one at the front of the guesthouse having breath-taking views of the nearby islands.

We were welcomed by the owner, Brian, who was very helpful and informative during our stay and even went out of his way to assist us with our airline check-in. Both cooked and continental breakfasts were abundant. Worth the money spent.

I recommend Ayres to others and would surely not hesitate to stay there again when re-visiting Oban.

The location is perfect, in the centre of Oban on the sea. Unfortunately, our room didn't have a view on the sea. The breakfast was a good buffet. The room was big, clean, with good tea facilities and the bathroom was nice as well.

My wife and I stayed at Ayres Guest House for one night as part of a tour of the west of Scotland.
We were met by the owner who was very courteous and should us to our room which was on the first floor and faced the bay, the views were beautiful. The room itself was well appointed and all the usual facilities were available. The en suit was a little on the small side but served very well (maybe I’m just too big).
The breakfast was ample and a good selection of continental and traditional cooked food was available.
The position of the guest house is very good for access to Oban centre and to the seafront. If I had to make a reservation it is not about the Guest house it would be about the neighbouring premises bar which make no effort to keep it’s guests noise limits down. This should not be taken as a criticism of Ayres Guest House but as to the thoughtlessness of it’s neighbours. With all that in mind I would still thoroughly recommend this guest house and if I were to revisit Oban I would use it again.

Room Tip: Room No. 3 Has two windows giving two slightly different views over the bay.
