We have stayed here before and were so eager to return.
Shelia & Kenneth are the most considerate hosts you could ever meet, nothing is too much trouble.
Such a pleasure to visit again n again.

Location-Great
Rooms- Spotless, homely with lovely touches
Views- Over town & harbour
Breakfast- Superb, Shelia freshly bakes everyday too.

We were travelling early Saturday Morning to Coll, we had not booked anywhere and I am so glad we had not. We knocked the door of Lochvoil House and we were met with a warm welcome lucky for us they had Double Room for the night. We had a very early start so would miss breakfast. Sheila did deduct the this from nightly rate, but still told us to help ourselves to to fruit etc., she showed us the kithchen for milk and juice as we had a 6am start. These extra touches make a big difference. We were also left home baked fruit loaf which was amazing.
It is in a great location, spotless and comfortable. We will be back for a longer stay.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from an exceptional visit to lochvoil house with my daughter and son in law. Sheila and Kenneth where very welcoming and there knowledge of the area is second to none as we found out when looking for ideas for our days out. The accomodation was excellent and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was better than you would recieve in a 5 star hotel, and Sheila's home baking was first class. We will recommend this accomodation to all our family and friends who are thinking of visiting this area of Scotland and we cant wait to return ourselves.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent however the 2 rooms at the front have exceptional views over Oban harbour an...

Coming back from Skye, we stopped in Oban for a night. We hadn't booked anything and came at random in Lochvoil Guest House. We were warm welcomed and found the location of the house quite outstanting, near the city, remote and calm, dominating the harbour.
The service is great, the quality of beds also. Breakfast of high quality ( porridge ! ).

My husband and I are just back from a fabulous week long stay at the bothy, Lochvoil House. The bothy is a great place to stay, very clean and spacious for two and exceptionally quiet. Sheila, the owner is lovely and was the perfect host. We got some great tips on places to visit from her husband, Kenneth too. The location of Lochvoil House is perfect, very close to Oban centre and the views! Amazing! The bothy doesn't have a view at it's at the back of the house, but that didn't really worry us as all you had to do was walk around to the front of the house, and there it was - fabulous! The walk to Oban is great, mostly along the ferry port. It's worth mentioning that the first part of the walk from the house is pretty steep and might be tricky for some, it was no bother to us though. Everything is within walking distance and for those like me looking to take a holiday that wouldn't mean getting in the car every day, it was perfect. My tip would be to check out the local service bus on Mull rather than going straight to an organised trip. You'll save yourself some money, and it's just as hassle free - thanks Kenneth!

We have just returned from our second weekend stay at this Guest House in Oban and received a very warm welcome from Sheila. The accommodation is very comfortable and very well appointed. Nice touches included bottles of water in the room, little chockie biscuits with the tea/coffee making facilities, and, on arrival, tea or coffee with biscuits served in the lounge or on the lawn in good weather. An excellent breakfast is provided.
The proprietors are very friendly and like to be on first-name terms with their guests and this enhances the friendly atmosphere, The house is located on a hill providing superb views over the town and the ferry terminal and these can be reached in a gentle 10 minute stroll. We had a heatwave when we visited so slept with the window wide open - absolutely no traffic or other noise to keep us awake.
Safe private parking is at the back of the house.

Room Tip: The front rooms have the views over the bay and ferry terminal.

We spent 2 nights at the Lochvoil House Bed and Breakfast at the end of August 2011, and found the owners to be very friendly and offered helpful information on walks and restaurants in Oban. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was of a particularly high standard, with home made cake and home made bread, which was delicious. We would definately recommend this B & B in Oban, and we would certainly stay here again. There is also parking available and it is only a 7 minute walk into the centre of Oban, where there are numerous seafood restaraunts to try.
