“Biker friendly!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I was touring Scotland on my motorbike and Oban was my next overnight stay. I stood in reception, unshaven and road ravaged, and was offered what I wanted - a cheap single room for one night with breakfast. Room 8 is at the top of the house and has impressive views. T.V, shower, comfortable warm bed, tea/coffee. They even have motorbike parking. I didn't have an evening meal but it smelled fantastic. I had a good cooked breakfast and was served quickly. There are no soaps/shower gels etc or a glass but obviously there's a mug. Hey, what do you want for only thirty quid?! I'd definitely stay there again.
Dave Sanderson.

Room Tip: If my single room is the same standard as the rest, you can't go wrong.

We stayed for one night while visiting Oban. The rooms were clean and comfortable (good bathroom) and the breakfasts were good too (set us up for a day in the Highlands). The price was good and although this B&B isn't really a luxury place, I don't think that is what it's aiming for - it's a decent place with a decent price.

thank you very much for taking the opportunity to right your review. I am glad you had a nice stay.
you are right we do not aim to be a 5 star establishment. we are a family run guesthouse that welcomes everyone. with the current financial problems world wide we feel a clean room, comfort , good breakfast and all the neseseties needed i.e towels, tea/coffee making facilities, wardrobe space, hair dyers, flat screen t.v , iron and ironing board and most rooms being en-suite are what we offer for a great affordable price which you mentioned as well thank you. we feel for us to start putting luxury items in rooms will mean we have to increase our tariff which in turn would not help Alderlea house which the majority now a days prefer to go for the cheaper alternative. we how ever do not put our standards very low to achieve the great prices but compremise on having luxury furniture in the room. it was lovely to meet you and hope to meet you again some time in the future take care and once again thank you for your kind review.

Just to say thank you for your wonderfull hospitality at Alderlea. Not only the breakfast is wonderful but even evening meals at very good prices.
Margaret went extra miles when we encountered the problem of lost luggage. She handled the issue very well whilst we were enjoying a day in Inverary. Then, she was extremely helpfull in assisting us when my wife required medical attention. She managed to get us an appointment in minutes time. Andy? He is added value for the complex!!
