“Good b & b within easy travelling distance to Oban”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We stayed here for one night in June. The owner was friendly and helpful and the beds were comfy. The bathroom was slightly on the small size but ok otherwise. The room itself was a good size. Breakfast was served, with other guests, around one table. The B&B is handy for Oban, a few miles away, and much cheaper than many places in Oban itself!

Ross is very friendly and helpful with ideas. Rooms are small, clean and very basic. One towel per person and tiny sink - good hot shower. Tea kettle had to sit on the floor as that was only outlet. You feel as though you are in the family guest room. Children and dog in the hall. Internet did not work in room - had to go to breakfast room to connect. Breakfast adequate but nothing special - no baked goods(no fresh scones that were offered in every other B&B). Very average and would not recommend. We only stayed there because others had no vacancy.

The Family is very nice and the rooms are clean. The breakfast tastes so good.
From there you can make very good trips to Oban, Isle of Mull, Iona and Inversely. In front of the B & B are a good Pub and Restaurant. The Owner have us good tips for trips.

When I arrived, Ross was there with a friendly welcome and got me settled in. The room was very comfortable and had a great shower en suite. The wi-fi was handy and clicked in right away. Breakfast was really good and the porridge was the best I've tasted. All in all the Rowans is a great location, comfortable and fantastic value.

We couldn't find a room in Oban so we stopped by the first hotel we could find by the roadside. This was a rather expensive inn and didn't look very nice so we tried the neighbouring B&B and found it excellent and at half the price. Very friendly people and a beutiful view from the garden.

We found this delightful B & B using google. Ross welcomed us and made us afternoon tea and suggested a short trip to fill in the rest of the afternoon. Easdale was great and we would never have found it ourselves.

There is a restaurant and pub in front of the B & B where we ate. The food was okay but the staff obviously didn't enjoy their jobs as they were very off hand and glum. Ross did not recommend the restaurant but it was convenient.

The B & B overlooked the water and I got some great photos of boats in the setting sun. Connel is 5 miles north of Oban. We were very happy with the room, hosts and location was great as we were heading north the next day. Would definitely recommend. Very reasonably priced.
