“I would recommend this apartment to any couple without hesitation”

My partner and I stayed at the Rowan Tree for 3 days in July. The accommodation was fantastic. We both have busy jobs and found that the environment was so relaxing. The apartment has all the necessary facilities you need for a stress free stay. The owner was very pleasant and helpful with local knowledge but also didn't intrude on our privacy, it's well worth the travel to stay.

“Perfection”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

This is a recently built single apartment situated on a hill overlooking Oban Bay. Within easy walking distance from the town centre or a short trip in a car. Great position for touring the local area and the nearby island of Mull. The apartment itself is extremely well appointed with a large comfy bed, a fully fitted kitchen and superior bathroom with large walk-in shower. Pamela the owner has thought of everything from a welcoming bottle of wine and milk in the fridge, digital TV and DVD player to a selection of books and boardgames for those staying in. We were very impressed with everything about this apartment and would not think twice about re-booking on our next visit to Oban. Loved it!

“Luxury apartment”

My boyfriend and I booked this place as we wanted to have our own space when going away for a belated valentines celebration and found that the cost of this place and for a B&B was pretty much the same.

When we arrived, Pamela had sorted out little details such as milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine after our long drive across.

The place is beautifully done, with an amazing amount of space and brilliant facilities.

Location was ideal for walking to the town, but due to the weather, we drove down to the pier and parked for 80p/ph.

I would definitely come back here the next time we visit Oban, which could be in the near future.

This was a clean and bright apartment. The welcome pack included some lovely home baking and other nice touches, e.g. milk for our tea. The bathroom was beautiful and the shower worked well. The kitchen was very well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful and tried their best to ensure that we had a pleasant stay. I really enjoyed my holiday here and I would return to this apartment again.
