Location central. Breakfast excellent, high quality, fully cooked breakfast , continental offered. Fresh fruit and or cereal.
Ideal place to stay if you want to explore islands and highlands.
Neat as a pin, highly recommend.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Gramarvin. We were so impressed last time that we even changed our holiday dates as Mary was fully booked on our first choice of dates. We would not now stay anywhere else in Oban. There has been no change of quality since our 1st visit. Mary is so friendly and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are superb. Couldn't get a better brekky in a 5 star hotel! Read my first review if you want the details. Nothing has changed.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs ask for 1st floor.

Very nice, clean and friendly. Could not find my way late at night called for help and they came to show the way. Would love to come visit again and would stay here.

This is now one of my return visits to this B&B in Oban and as ever the stay was wonderful. The owners are extremely helpful and accommodating. Have been travelling around Scotland for a couple of weeks and had nowhere to stay after the Gramarvin and despite them being fully booked the owner still helped us in finding somewhere to stay afterwards. Great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone

This is the second time I've been to the Gramarvin. I loved it so much last time that I didn't even bother looking for anywhere else. Mary can not be more helpful and will go put of her way to make your stay special. I really feel like I'm at home staying here and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Oban.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Mary and Joe Hill's Gramarvin Guesthouse. Prime location within Oban; spotlessly clean bedrooms, restrooms, and dining facility; great price; and parking is included. The Scottish breakfast is delicious; our hostess, Mary, was very nice, professional, and friendly; the guesthouse is quiet; and I think this would be a great place to stay for a honeymoon. Looking forward to going back!
