We stayed here on our last night of a motorbike tour. We were really quite early (something to do with wanting a cold beer in the oban sunshine) we arrived and called Karen the owner who advised us that being early would not be an issue if Verity was in, which she was. We were then greeted by the very bubbly and friendly Verity who gave us a lovely cold glass of white wine. We stayed in the two 'attic' rooms with the shared shower room, the rooms were fully functional, spottlessly clean and comfy. The shower room was very modern and again spotless. Breakfast was great and Verity was keen that we didnt leave without saying goodbye which we thought was really friendly. We will definately go back and stay again.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on your stay with us.

It was a pleasure to meet you all. I shall pass your kind comments onto Verity. She takes great pride in the running of grove House.

The 2 attic rooms that share the high powered shower room are lovely and full of character. I am delighted to read that you found the facilities and cleanliness to be of a high standard.

I do hope that you all enjoyed the rest of your biking around Scotland, and that the weather was kind to you too !

I do hope to be able to welcome you back to Grove House sometime in the future ...

We really enjoyed our stay at The Grove House & would highly recommend it to anyone who was visiting the area. We used it as a base when we were doing the Kittoch Car Tour & throughly enjoyed our stay. The rooms were lovely & very comfortable , breakfast was delicious with plenty to choose from & the glass of wine on arrival was nice. Karen & Verity made you feel so welcome & they couldnt do enough for us. The general atmosphere was relaxing and homely.
We just wish our stay had been longer. Thank you very much & look forward to returning in the near future.

Stayed one night here and it's fab! Karen the owner was really friendly as was her house manager who greeted us with a lovely glass of wine! After the most delicious breakfast we were shown round Karen's other b & b the Ardtorna, what a place! Stunning views and very modern, I will be staying there too. I would recommend either of these places. Looking forward to coming back. The beds are super comfy too.

It was a delight to meet you and to be able to chat to you during your brief stay. I shall pass your kind words onto Verity who helps me run the bed and breakfast. She is a fabulous host, and always enjoys welcoming guests to Grove House and being of help to them during their stay with planning trips etc. She takes great pride in doing so. The magnitude of ' Thank you " cards she receives is a testament to her kindness and generosity.

I was a pleasure to show you around our sister property. Delighted to read that you liked it.

I look forward to welcoming you both back in the not too distant future to either Grove House or Ardtorna...

Opulent bedroom and overwhelming selection of breakfast entrées. Warm welcome at our arrival. Wi-fi. Parking easier on the street than near the house. Stayed only one night, but easily could see how it could be a hub from which one could explore this region.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your bedroom. We have been most pleased with all of our newly designed bedrooms, and the styles have gone down very well with our recent guests.

I do hope to be able to welcome you back to our bed and breakfast in the not too distant future , and perhaps next time you will manage to stay longer to be able to explore all the lovely sites we have to offer in the area.

My mum and I stayed for two nights at the Grove House at the end of August 2012. Verity and Karen are excellent hosts, the room was immaculate, spotlessly clean and the towels were lovely and soft The small touches, like the glass of wine on arrival, sweets in your room and the tea making facilities in your bedroom are a really nice touch. The breakfasts are fabulous and the variety is excellent, a feast for everyone .the freshly made smoothies are fab too. We were made very welcome and Verity and Karen were really helpful, friendly and honestly couldn't do enough for us. My mum, who is 87years old had a great time and is looking forward to returning for a short stay next May. I would like to thank you both for a very enjoyable stay and I would have no hesitation in recommending your guest house to my friends.
