“Beautiful and great location”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Had two rooms on top floor. Good size and lovely décor in both, with toiletries in the bath. Downtown is around the corner. Very nice owners. Parking is tight, but they make it work. We were so glad we stayed here two nights. Breakfast was good and it was so easy to get to town and the ferry. We will return.

We have just returned from a 2 night stay at Gramarvin Guest House in Oban. It is situated just a few minutes walk from the centre of Oban and Ferry so no need to use your car. The room we had was en suite and very clean and comfortable. Mary the owner is a lovely person and can't do enough for you, she puts on a fantastic breakfast with lots of choice from fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, tea, coffee, toast followed by a full cooked breakfast. We would highly recommend a stay in this Guest House.

Central location with just a short walk to the ferry terminal or the Oban Distillery. The room and en suite were modern and clean. The hot breakfast was well portioned and a good take-away breakfast was provided one day so we could catch an early ferry.

Situated not far from the harbour and town centre, Gramarvin is ideally situated for local amenities. Pay special attention to the directions to the car park at the rear of the property. It is a lovely B&B with nicely appointed rooms, the two we stayed in (with another couple) had ensuite facilities. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, with fruit juices, cereals, yoghurts etc. followed by a cooked breakfast (choices available) and toast with various preserves. All in all we had a very nice stay.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have dormer windows.

Very quiet room with decent curtains so you can sleep through the bright Scottisch nights! Breakfast was very well catered and the room was very clean. Along with the kindness of the hostess this makes it a very nice B&B.

We have just spent three nights at this B&B staying in room 2. The good points were the room was clean and comfy. There is nothing bad I can say about this other than a few niggles:
1. Our room was in the front and in the morning it can be a bit noisey so close the window!!
2. Breakfast was freshly cooked and good quality back bacon but if you advertise a scottish breakfast then I do expecty one not egg bacon sausage fresh tomato and a cheap hash brown
3. The bedroom could have done with a desk/dressing table as my wife found getting ready in the morning a pain sitting on the floor not ideal if you are elderly.
4. The owners are nice but come evening you are left to fend for yourselves. A nice social room/lounge where you could end your day with a drink (fridge with beer with a honesty box) would have been cool and fun.
5. Wifi - free my wife had no problem but I could not connect well and when I did it was slow condisering same phone and lying next to each other was strange.
We know this is a small independent B&B not a major chain. It is in the back streets no view but there is free parking and you are only 5 minute walk to the front.
All in all we had a lovely time in Oban
