“Fantastic Guest House”
Reviewed May 22, 2007

What a fantastic Guest House this was, we were lucky enough to be upgraded to room no.7 (i think it was) at the Kilchrenan and what a beautiful room, absoloutley huge compared to our friends room on the top floor, with a huge bed, beautiful fireplace, and the bathroom had a gorgeous roll top bath where you could sit and admire the beautiful views over to the Isle of Mull. We would have been happy with any of the rooms for all the time we spent in them, we were out and about both days, eating and drinking! I would thoroughly recommend this guest house, the breakfasts were filling enough with a wide choice from a menu, and nothing was any trouble to them. As stated in previous posts the owner was more than happy to chat away to us and give his advice on where to eat etc. We stayed 2 nights and ate at a fab restaurant called Euesk on the Saturday, the men opted for the seafood platter for 2 at £60 which was fantastic value, the menu had a good choice and even although they had no note of our booking they still managed to get us a table. The sun was shining the whole weekend we stayed in Oban and would recommend driving thru Glencoe for the scenery alone. We stopped off in Balloch on our way home for a pub lunch and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of food.

we stayed for 3 nights from the 10th to the12th of may.
it was a suprise treat for my wifes 50th birthday so i was hoping the hotel wouldnt let me down.
colin welcomed us and showed us to our room which was room 6.
the room was clean, tidy and well maintained it also has the bonus of a four poster bed.
breakfasts were excellent and the staff always friendly and helpful.
we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definately stay there again.
i would like to thank colin and all his staff for making my wifes birthday a lttle bit more special.
thanks again martin and julie.
