“Superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2013

The room was clean and fresh and bedding and towels where first rate.. We slept very well.

The breakfast was also excellent with a good range to choose from.

If we come that way again we will definately stay again and we;ve already reccommended it to other friends.

One word for our stay at the Thornloe. SUPERB. ;-)

Room Tip: The service is so good here that I think any room would be appreciated.

Stayed here for one night last Friday. Was contacted by the owner by email a few days before our stay as they would be away on our estimated time of arrival. It was offered to leave a key behind for us, but as we wanted to leave the car and look around it was no problem at all for us. We had room 7 on the top floor with a great view over Oban. Lots of space in the room, and separate living room area. Breakfast in the morning was hearty indeed with a good choice. We certainly didnt leave hungry! Was very happy with the stay and would definitely choose to stay here again.

We stayed here for three nights in late July and it was just wonderful. We had rooms 5 and 6 (which has an especially magnificent view of Oban), which were spotless. Great location as well - just a very short and pleasant walk and you're in downtown Oban. We loved the breakfasts and Alan and Val were very helpful in providing directions when needed. They couldn't have been nicer. We will definitely be staying here again the next time we visit Oban, (which will hopefully be sooner rather than later).

We found Thornloe online. It was just as described in the website. Lovely house, our room was a good size and spotlessly clean, the en suite was well equipped and again spotlessly clean. Breakfast was freshly cooked and very tasty. Valerie was friendly and helpful but not over the top. Would definitely recommend and we will return if staying in Oban again.

Room Tip: The view from the sea facing rooms is spectacular!

I booked a last-minute, one-night stay at Thornloe in early April. I arrived early, but my host was very nice and allowed me to check in early. She was super friendly and willing to help. My room was small but nice. I enjoyed my stay here except that my room was very cold. I had the heater turned up full blast, but it didn't seem to warm the room at all. My host ensured that I had the heater working properly and commented that "I don't know what you're used to", which was a little dismissive. Otherwise, the accommodations were lovely. The breakfast the next morning was great. I would stay here again.

Just back after another great break. This is our 4 th year at this guest house it is really a great place to stay great food lovely views and very central to the town centre 2 min walk. Alan and val make us very welcome each year and we have a good catch up on what we've all been doing As every year when we return there always some thing new has been done to the house. We eat at the pizza at the north pier it's fantastic . There are great view from the large windows so you can watch the boats come and go. The staff are very nice and make you welcome and nothing is a bother to them even when it's really busy. Oban is a great place to visit. As plenty to do there.

Room Tip: Room. No2 has great views

Would highly recommend this guest house that my son and i stayed at. We had a very warm welcome and was made to feel at home straight away. Our room was gorgeous and spacious with a very clean,modern en suite shower room. Beds were very comfy,tea and coffee facilities were excellent. The view from our room was breath taking looking over Oban bay,it was a beautiful scene when waking up in the morning.Our breakfast was fantastic with good size portions and a good choice on breakfast menu. The garden was lovely to sit in, again with a beautiful view looking over Oban. We will definately be back again!
