A " Compact and Bijou" establishment, very comfortable and well appointed room, very clean and good value for money. Breakfast was more than adequate and very tasty. The Stornoway Black Pudding on the plate was like no Black Pudding I have ever tasted, - it was delicious. I was tempted to lick the plate when I had finished, - but I was discouraged by my wife, - unfortunately.
Highly recommended, Bill & Linda from Brisbane.

Stayed at Failte B&B on a stopover on the way to Islay. The B&B is placed on the cliffs in Oban and therefor has a great view over the bay. Our room had a big window facing the bay with two chairs so that we could sit there and enjoy the view.

The breakfast was fresh cooked, and plentyfull - one of the best I've had so far in Scotland.

The room was nice and quiet with everything you need. The bathroom was quite small but everything was clean and working.

Booked into this B&B after struggling to find anyone who could accommodate a single traveller and I am so glad I did After a stiff
uphill walk, the door opened and I was warmly welcomed by Mike, the owner and had my bags taken off me immediately and shown up to my room. What a delightful room, not the biggest but
perfectly formed, immaculately clean and had everything you need. Comfy bed, plenty of lighting for reading, a super compact shower room, complete with heated towel rail and a bath sheet as
opposed to a bath towel. Lots of little touches that never go unnoticed by a female and even a
small fridge. My Room l had a lovely outlook onto the rear garden and woodland and very, very
quiet. As I was leaving early the following morning I was not able to sample breakfast. View
from the roads up here are fantastic. The walk up is challenging but I would say, please do not
be put off by booking as there is a brilliant taxi service in Oban so no problem really. I would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you Mike for your genuine warm welcome.

My husband and I stayed a night here on our way north earlier this month and received a very friendly welcome. We agree with the other reviewers about the view and the clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was also delicious.

The only down side was the very heavy rain while we were looking for a place to eat. We found most of the places fully booked but ended up in a Chinese Restaurant. However, this was very nice and, for once, I found a meal that was not too big.

Hope to stay here again on our travels.

Room Tip: I can't remember the number but the front room we had was excellent.

We stated in this B&B for just one night (June 13, 2014) prior to our ferry ride to the Isle of Mull but it was long enough to appreciate this clean well appointed room that overlooked the harbor. It was a bit of a chore hiking up the hill with our wheelies but worth it for the ambiance and the view. It was also very quiet. The owner was very friendly and helpful. A great place to stay in Oban.

Room Tip: Not sure what the room number was but it was a room that faced the harbor and it had a great view.

Failte, as the name suggests, is a lovely place to stay. The proprietress is helpful and friendly and she maintains the appealing rooms to a high standard. You'll find parking is well managed and that early leaving times can be negotiated. The view from a front room is stunning.

We were glad we took advice from Tripadvisor and reserved a room ahead, instead of deciding to take our chances upon arrival. Oban, with its steep, twisty, one-way streets, is not easy to navigate. Our choice of Failte was a good one, although our late booking meant that we didn’t have one of the rooms in the front with amazing views. That said, our room was comfortable and quiet and, when a ferocious storm blew in that night, was cozy and snug in spite of the wind rattling around us. We slept extremely well. Trish was very hospitable and gracious, and our breakfasts were delicious. I would recommend this lovely B&B without hesitation.
