“Don't miss this!”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

Sarah and Gary are amazing hosts. This was our third visit to An Struan and now I've discovered tripadvisor can't wait to tell everyone what a great place this is to stay. Very conveniently situated and easy to find, a warm welcome assured. Delicious home baking, including imaginative breakfast "specials" plus eggs from their own hens, Sarah's home-made bread and marmalade. Far from being content with their already high standard, Sarah and Gary continually strive to update and improve facilities for their guests. You would have to pay serious money for accommodation like this in a hotel and the comforting sight of their dog, Alfie, snoozing by the wood-burner on a cold, winter night is priceless. It doesn't get much better than this.

Myself and my boyfriend arranged to stay at An-Struan B&B for one night whilst travelling throughout scotland. We booked through LateRooms.com. Overall price was good. Sarah & Gary really did make us feel welcome, they offered us hot drinks on arrival as well as small snacks which really does make all the difference. Rooms were great, really cosy and warm (ideal for the winter nights in Benderloch!) Really good breakfast. Would really recommend!

Sarah & Gary pull out all the stops to make you feel comfortable, and at home.
The house and rooms are very comfortable, and very clean. We were welcomed with coffee and home baking (delicious), and made welcome in their lounge.
We were visiting Benderloch as we had a gig in the nearby North Connel Village Hall. This meant a late evening return for us, but this posed no problem for the owners.
Breakfast was fantastic, with a wide range of choices available, and cooked to perfection.

Overall first class!

After making a late decision to visit Oban and only booking the B & B the night before we were delighted with our choice and enjoyed our 4 night stay, coming and going as and when we pleased. Sarah and Gary were warm, friendly and very welcoming. Nothing was a trouble to them, even making space in their shed to accommodate our bikes. The room was clean, comfortable and contained everything we needed (even warm comfy dressing gowns).
The breakfasts were a delight, with an excellent choice and more than ample portions. Our hosts were more than happy to cater for our personal choices even if they varied from the menu.
We enjoyed our morning chats with Sarah and Gary, who were able to provide information on local events and attractions.
We would thoroughly recommend An Struan to anybody holidaying in this area.

Had a fab time staying here, room was excellent and so was the breakfast! whiskey sauce mmmm
We were welcomed with a glass of wine and a bit of a chat of where to go and what to see.
Sarah was really nice and offered to pick us up after we decided to walk about 3 miles up the road, which was beyond the call of duty for a b n b hostess!
All in all room was excellent and i highly reccommend a stay there!

We found An-Struan a very comfortable, clean and welcoming accommodation and our host and hostess couldn't do enough for us.In spite of a rainy three days, Sarah allowed us to come and go as we pleased. The wood-burning stove in the lounge kept us warm and cosy and Gary's splendid breakfasts, with a good choice each morning kept us going for most of the day.We enjoyed our stay immensely and would recommend An-Struan to anyone visiting the Benderloch area.This B&B deserves the highest accolade.

Had a wonderful time at An-Struan and was very warmly greeted with tea and delicious home-made cheese scones upon arrival. Was very pleased with the room and the bed was extremely comfortable. The room was spotless and has a modern décor. Breakfast was lovely with plenty of choice, delicious food and generous portions. The town itself is fairly quiet but there is plenty to do around the area with local beaches and the town of Oban fairly nearby. Sarah and Gary are very personable hosts and their performing dogs are adorable. When my girlfriend's parents from America visit next summer we would love to return.
