Strumhor
Ranked #5 of 8 Connel B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 6, 2013

Fantastic view, excellent rooms, very friendly hosts, great breakfast, 50 yards to a very nice pub. The sun lounge overlooking the falls of Lora is the perfect place to read or relax in peace. The WIFI is very fast. We definitely recommend this place.

My husband and I spent two nights here in April '13. We had a room and sitting room overlooking the Falls of Lora, and access to a lively sunroom with the same view. It was just lovely to be there, looking out at the water and bridge, with Olga's home cooked treats, friendly advice on the area and a serene ambience in the house a d surrounds.

If lucky you can see otters in the river, and sunsets are worth watching too.

It's a good base for Oban and area, and we highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the water, though they may all do.

We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us and it's nice to know that the home-made cakes were appreciated! I'm also very glad to see that you perceive the ambience to be serene - this is important to us. It was good to meet you. Thank you so much. For other guests - our big double room, Lorn, overlooks the sea, as do the two single rooms.

We recently spent 1 night here. Would definitely recommend staying here.Room was clean and comfortable. It is close to Oban with a fabulous water view. Since they were not full, they were gracious to allow us to have breakfast in the conservatory. Olga's home made fudge on arrival was "to die for" and the breakfast was excellent. the pancakes were outstanding! Would definitely return and spend more time in the area.

We recently spent three nights at Strumhor and would strongly recommend it for B&B in this part of the West coast. The location and views are stunning, the hospitality great and it is a perfect base for exploring Mull and it's wildlife and some very good local gardens. Standards are excellent - a lovely room, enjoyable breakfasts, a super conservatory and good advice from our hosts on what to do and where to go. We plan to be back in the future!

Strumhor is a tranquil haven surrounded by Scottish landscape at its best, with the falls of Laura a stunning view from the conservatory. Olga is a unique host so welcoming, friendly, and helpful. We had a two night stay, and our room was pristine,and the on suite was of exceptional high standard,the room had lots of personal touches too. Olga's cooking is top class our breakfast was a real treat. As for Olga's home baking was divine with a cuppa when we returned from our walks. I have recommended Strumhor to friends and hope to return before the end of the season. Thanks for a great B&B experience.
