“Happy Hogmanay!”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

My husband booked the Invercloy after reading good reviews - they were spot on. We had a room at the front of the house where you could see the bay and the clouds on Mull (standard!). Room was clean and warm. The ensuite was pretty small but useable. Was really nice meeting the other guests and having a pre-party drink. Fiona is a fabulous host, we will definitely return!

Myself and a friend stayed here for one Thursday night in Sept 2013. We booked a twin room. I had read reviews online and thought it sounded good. This is a room only guest house, no breakfast. We did know this in advance (website clearly states this) and this was ok as we had a train to catch at 8am. You do get a discount in a local cafe though. The room we had was at the front overlooking the harbour. The guest house is on the hill and the view is amazing. After we had dinner at the chippy on the sea front, we actually changed our plans from going to a pub, to going to buy some beers from Tesco and sit in the bay window, chatting and watching the boats arrive and leave. It was just so relaxing and pleasant, would love to go back again one day. The owner is lovely and very friendly. We had a nice little chat with her shortly after arriving. What did make me smile was how different the way of life is up there to what it is in London. When we were chatting with her, Wetherspoons coming to Oban was talk of the town so it seems! Yet down here, there is one round every corner. And if you want to go proper shopping while there, it's a 3 hour train ride to Glasgow. Again here, 20 mins and you're on Oxford Street. Look forward to going back to Oban and the West Highlands again. Will certainly book to stay here again!

Room Tip: Get a front room that over looks the bay. We will not regret this!!!

Stayed here for one night. Room was lovely, warm and very comfortable with fabulous views over Oban Bay. Fiona was also really friendly and helpful and not at all intrusive. The guest house is in a great location, only a few mins walk into the town however this did involve negotiating a very steep set of stairs that some may find difficult. There is a main road that you can walk down that is much easier but will take a bit longer. The room was quite pricey considering breakfast was not included, however we felt it was definitely worth the money for the quality of the accommodation and view. We would highly recommend it to others on a short break.

Room Tip: Get the double with the en suite as this offers maximum privacy with a wonderful view

Fantastic location up at the top of a hill overlooking the harbour just below McCaig's Tower; just a 2-minute walk to town and the Oban distillery. The host was very friendly, easygoing and helped my friend and I plan a scenic route back to Glasgow. Room was clean, well stocked and had beautiful views of the harbour.

Room Tip: Front rooms have a view.

We have had a wonderful stay at Invercloy B&B. The room was clean, big enough with large variety coffee and tea. The guest house is in the city centre, just 5 minutes walk from the shops, bars, restaurants. The staffs were very friendly. Only disadvantage is that there is now bathroom in the room, but this was known before travel.

Great location, very nice atmosphere. We had a room with a great view at the sea. The room itself was very clean with nice smelling beadsheets. The room was tiny with a charme of an old building. The host was very friendly.

A small guest house near the top of the Oban township with a great view of the harbour. The owner & her daughter were very friendly & helpful, & gave us tips on cafes for breakfast etc. because it is a guesthouse, there is a shared bathroom, but we had no problem with that. The whole house was very clean & comfortable.
