This was our second time staying here and yet again we were made very welcome. Ishbell and James are such lovely and welcoming people, the bedrooms are very comfortable and spotlessly clean, i wouldn't hesitate to recommend a stay here.

Not the first time my Husband & i have stayed at this guest house. Stayed friday 25th May & the place was spotless as always. Lovely breakfast & the owners are always very accommodating. Dont understand where the previous review comment comes from as never in all the times we have stayed there have we found it being dirty anywhere especially the toilets & shower area. Whenever we have to stay a night in Oban we always stay here because of the warm welcome we receive from the owner Ishbell & the cleaniness of the rooms & have recommended it to all our friends.

I can not give 4 or five stars to this B&B because I found the toilet and the washbasin quite dirty and full of hairs, that never happened to me before in a B&B, but I have to admit that the rest of the facilities were great, the dining room, the living room and the bed (really comfortable).
The owners were very friendly as well.
I expected more but it's ok for the money you pay

We are a family of 4 + Grandmother and Sgeir Mhaol Guest House was one of the last places we have stayed during our 10 day journey through Scotland. We were pleasantly surprised all around. Ishbell was fabulous and made us feel very welcome, and surprised us with an excellent breakfast, definitely made with love. We had a tradional Scotish breakfast, but we were also able to have cheeses as well. This has been the only place were I didn't had to choose between continental or Scotish breakfast and the fresh strawberries were the best. My kids mostly loved the fresh hash browns. The rooms were nice and tidy. We had a family room for 4 and a room with 2 twin beds. The lounge room has also been very nice and relaxing. Also we liked the location, very much in walking distance to the town center. We also were able to leave our car at the guest house after checkout, so we could enjoy the old town a little more.
This guest house has been one of the nicest and definitely most reasonably priced ones we have stayed at. Thank you soo much Ishbell!!!

I chose Sgeir Mhaol Guest House for its proximity to the centre of Oban. It is very easy to find and has excellent parking facilities.
I was warmly welcomed by Ishbel and shown to a very nice double room, with small but perfectly adequate en-suite facilities, tea and coffee making facilities and TV.
When travelling alone it is very difficult to find B & B where the single traveller is not asked to pay a supplement.
Consequently Sgeir Mhaol will be first on my list of contacts when I need accommodation in Oban again.
Overall, very good value for money.

This is a lovely and well kept guest house. It is in a quieter neighborhood but convenient to the town center and all attractions. The room was very nice with ample space and a very up to date en suite bath. The hostess was very charming and helpful and breakfast was very good.
