Arrived with a group of biker friends for one night. Excellent parking for the bikes. We were well looked after by Morven and the staff. The accommodation was great, the breakfast was great and the staff were great.

We arrived on a grey and wet afternoon. So good to be able to go to the communal lounge and meet with other travellers. No need to leave , with a bottle of wine to share and such comfortable accomodation

We stayed at Kathmore for two nights in may 2013 whilst en route to the Island of Coll.
Morven and her staff were very friendly and helpful.
Our bedroom was immaculately clean and well appointed.
The gardens and outdoor areas are spacious and beautiful.
Kathmore is very conveniently located for a short walk into the centre of Oban and the harbour area.
I loved the breakfast and the cheery serving staff.
Would definitely stay here again

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the property are quieter.

We stayed at Kathmore for 2 nights in May 2013.

Perfect location, 5 minute walk to the center of Oban and the docks. Very clean room and bath. The guest lounge was a great place to unwind after a day out and have a drink, read and meet other very amiable guests. Good Scottish breakfast too.

The best part however was the owner. Her name is Morven. Great sense of humor, friendly and a good source of local information. Loved her!

Would highly recommend.

We have recently returned from our umpteenth visit to Kathmore and once again, delighted by the room. Immaculate in decor and cleanliness (room and bathroom), comfortable beds, I could go on forever! We have stayed in other hotels in Oban (only when Morven couldn't squeeze us in) but they are nowhere near the standards of Kathmore. You can park your car, drop your bags off and it's only a short walk from main streets and ferry terminal. Morven and Keith and all their staff are so helpful and welcoming and the breakfast is wonderful too. Try it once, bet you go back again and again.

Hi you two,
That was lovely of you to write us such a good review - how much do I owe you for that Gordon ? We enjoy having you two as much as you enjoy coming. It is always a pleasure. We had a great wedding in Rhodes, everything went to plan. Look forward to your next visit.
Hope you are well
