Heatherfield House
Ranked #21 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 3, 2012

A good and reasonably priced bed & breakfast. Room just big enough and well equipped with a good view across Oban. Breakfast tasty and with a good selection on offer. There is private parking which is ideal if you are stopping on your way to a ferry but note that exit from the parking is quite steep and tight - good clutch control needed.

The host Gary, came out to meet us as soon as we pulled into the private parking area next to the house.

Our room was nice and large with a comfortable bed. The bathroom had a tub/shower combination and nice toiletries. Our bedroom windows looked out over the Heatherfield's front garden and you could see Oban's harbor over the rooftops of the neighboring house, our other window looked out onto trees and the neighbor's back yard. There was an iPod dock which was very nice, we enjoyed listening to some music as we relaxed in the evening. The wifi didn't work very well in our room which I suspect had to do with the fact that we were on the other side of the fire door from the router.

The breakfast buffet was good as were the hot items. They have their own chickens so the eggs were probably very fresh.

We were only there for one night, but we would gladly have spent more time.

Room Tip: Our room was #5 and very nice.

We stayed in Heatherfield House for one night during our holiday. The rooms are small but perfectly formed, very comfortable as well as nice and quiet. The breakfast options were delicious. The only reason this gets four stars is the breakfast hours finishing at nine - a little early for us on holiday!

We recently spent 2 nights at Heatherfield house and would highly recommend it. We had a well furnished room of a high standard and great breakfasts with a good selection of fresh fruit.
To have a B&B in the center of Oban with parking was a great find.

Although rainy, we had a lovely time in Oban at this B & B. Room #1 was fabulous! On the main floor, our room was incredibly large and very tastefully decorated. Also the bathroom was the best, with a large tub and newly updated fixtures! Complete with fluffy robes and rubber duckies in the tub! Also I must mention they were equipped with gluten free toast at breakfast, a rare treat!

Room Tip: Room # 1, very private and huge!

Cute garden outside the entrance. Warm and comfy insides. Great views of Oban from above. Free computer in the dinner room. Staff was also very friendly. Quick walk down the street to downtown. Walk off that 10 pound seafood dinner going back up hill.

Our final guest house on our recent tour of Scotland was Heatherfield House, everything about the place was that much better than the two previous b and b's we'd stayed at. Car parking right outside, lovely gardens running alongside with chickens (the eggs were especially good) very comfortable, enormous bed and good sized room with wonderful view over towards Kerrara and Isle of Mull. The bathroom/shower/wc was very well appointed. Only about 3-4 mins down to centre of Oban, but far enough away not to be bothered by noise. As mentioned the eggs were great at breakfast, as was breakfast itself, with a good variety of options. Would recommend unreservedly to anyone, the only sad thing is the owners are selling up and moving back south.

Room Tip: Only experienced room 3, on first floor and wonderful view over to Kerrara and Mull.
