Two couples rented this flat in Oban. Great location with a welcoming atmosphere! There was a nice bottle of wine and some fudge waiting for our arrival. The rooms were spotless, and while we did have some heating issues the first night, Grigor was available immediately to help and it was taken care of as soon as possible.
Kitchen had some basics and there was lots of space for everyone. Parking can be a bit of a challenge, but no big deal. Great modern decor, comfortable beds and only 5 minute walk to ferry and downtown. Great view across the water too!

Returned home from 3Oban today quite disappointed to be home! Luxurious tasteful stay where the hosts have gone the extra mile to provide little extras to ensure a very comfortable stay. I don't want to spoil the surprise so a few highlights to mention : I loved the crisp linen and comfy beds, our son loved the games and the prime viewing spot to watch the to-ing and fro-ing at the ferry terminal which is a stone's throw. We just loved the town itself, such a busy wee place with no shortage of things to do. With 2 young kids the main attractions we enjoyed were the sea life centre in Balwhich you can return to if you keep your receipt, the beach by Dunollie Castle and of course a ferry trip to Mull to visit the famous Tobermory. We found many a nice cafe and restaurant all pretty child-friendly and relaxed.
One small point parking in Oban is not as easy as you would think for a small town lots of pay to park car parks or street meters so change comes in very handy. We parked at Oban library which was pay and display and max 4hrs stay, so need to drive a bit away fm flat if leaving he car for a day. Overall however,cannot rate it highly enough, we loved our break and we will be back!

We stayed in Oban3 for three nights, the apartment was absolutely stunning, very spacious, warm and spotless. Grigor and Ruth (owners) were so lovely and even greeted us with wine and chocolates, everything we needed was in the flat. It was snowing when we arrived and the views from the apartment window was amazing . If you are planning a trip to Oban you must stay at Oban 3.

We stayed at 3 Oban with our 15 and 11 year olds during the half term break. The apartment was lovely and very reasonably priced, given the fact that it has 3 good sized bedrooms.
The location was also great, easily within walking distance to the centre of town/ferry terminal, distillery and supermarket.

I would highly recommend staying at 3 Oban.

We spent a long weekend in Oban and really enjoyed staying at here! We booked last minute and all communication was quick and easy. We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable. The flat was quiet and cosy for our winter stay, and had fab views of the ferries and the bay with the hills beyond. Also, it only took 5 minutes to walk into town and to the station. The bed was very comfortable and the sofas too! We had a great day trip to Mull and some awesome fish and chips on our last night to round off a lovely weekend. Thanks for a great stay.

My wife and I decided to have a mini break in Oban whilst visiting Scotland from abroad. We had the pleasure at staying at ‘3 Oban’ which has just recently opened. We were also travelling with two young children. The property was large and spacious, with plenty of room for everyone so perfect for family or friends. The property is spotlessly clean and is beautifully yet comfortably decorated and felt like a home from home. It’s in a great location and there are wonderful views over Oban bay to the island of Kerrera and beyond. We could see the Isle of Mull in the distance with its snow-capped mountains from our bedroom window. The hosts were friendly and welcoming and made our stay very comfortable. Thank you for the lovely hamper on arrival! A very special and unique touch and something we have never experienced before in the highlands. We are looking forward to returning in the Summer months as a base for our Island hopping! Till next time, and good luck with the new venture!

We stumbled upon 3 Oban quite by accident, as the owners have just newly opened and not hugely advertised as yet. All I can say is WOW! I have never stayed in such a beautiful holiday let. This three bedroom apartment is spacious and decorated beautifully throughout from the VERY comfortable couches with soft throws to amazingly soft beds and quirky “snug” area for breakfast and a few bottles of wine at night. The hosts were amazing and were out of their way to make us feel welcome and relaxed. We loved the wine and homemade shortbread. Sadly we only managed to stay for 4 days due to travelling commitments. But we will be back! Cheers Guys! The sea views were also phenomenal!
