“Well worth the stay”
Reviewed March 6, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Beautiful apartment just a short walk out of town. The apartment had everything we needed with tea and coffee provided. An informative folder was left for us to browse . We were left a welcome gift of fudge which was very thoughtful. The apartment was warm clean and very tastefully decorated , would stay here again

“Comfortable and well kitted out”
Reviewed December 3, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Arrived at Elmbank to find the apartment lovely and warm with lights left on which was nice and welcoming.
The whole apartment had been well thought out and the decor and furnishings are tasteful and functional. Kitchen was well appointed (perhaps some coffee and milk could be left in the apartment to welcome guests?), lounge area was comfortable (though sofa a bit soft if I am critical), shower room adequate with good quality towels and bedroom very comfortable.
The path down the side of the apartment is a bit tight between the building and the wall especially if carrying large bags.
Parking on the road was OK but would prefer off-street parking especially as this is a bus route and Croft Road although wider at Elmbank is narrow in places.
Free wifi was good to have.
15 minute walk into town and 15-20 minute to ferry terminal.
Great location a bit out of town, would be nice in the summer to sit on the small deck in an evening.
I would definitely recommend this apartment for sol travelers or couples.

“Beautiful, cosy apartment in a lovely location”
Reviewed November 20, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I would highly recommend this lovely apartment for anyone looking to stay slightly outside of Oban. Upon arrival, the flat was lovely and clean with beautiful fresh flowers to welcome us. The location is very peaceful and parking is right outside - which is perfect. Ruth and Grigor are extremely accommodating, and the kitchen and living room are very well equipped, making it feel like a home from home. Thanks for making our last night in Scotland such a peaceful one!

Just stayed for a week in Oban and found this place in a good position to walk into town,about 10-15 min, just a note , Oban is quiet hilly and Elmbank garden apartment is at the top of one of these hills, for use it was fine.
What we found was its very quiet at night , which was what we liked as to get a good nights sleep.the Apartment had every thing you need, was a good lay out for two people

Hi Andy,

Thanks for taking the time to write your review, we really appreciate it! ;-)
So pleased to hear you had a relaxing time in Elmbank and that you were able to sleep well.

Oban town is built around the beautiful bay, which means that there can be gradual inclines when leaving the centre of town. It takes us around 10 minutes also to reach the apartment from town, and glad that this did not pose any problems for you.

Best Wishes
Ruth & Grigor

A wonderful holiday in this beautiful region with excellent accommodation. Oban is a lovely harbour town with fantastic access to the Hebridean islands as well as the fabulous landscape of the mainland. Will return!!
