Glenmore Country House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 5 Kilmelford B&B and Inns
Reviewed June 7, 2012

We arrived for a one night stay at Glenmore Lodge Country House B&B, a stones throw from the village and inviting, friendly pub. A party of 3, we were shown to the West Wing Suite, we had a beautiful room facing onto Loch Melfort. The beds in both the single and double were extremely comfortable and assured us all an excellent nights sleep. We enjoyed our time wandering the estate which was my purpose, to add some detail to a novel I am writing, and gathered inspiration from the stunning views across the water. The antiques and curios around the house added to the interest.
Most of all however was the attention that was given to us from Colin, who looked after us during our stay. He was at hand throughout our visit and made us feel exceptionally welcome. I guarantee that anyone visitng from Scotland or further would be heartened by the hospitallity extended to them during their stay and would be an experience that would be remembered for anyone returning home.
Lastly, the never ending full breakfast with its stornoway back pudding, home made bread and preserves was enough for us to determine to write this review. Thank you and we will be visiting again. Neil, Karen and Jean.

We recently passed through Argyll on holiday, and stopped by chance at Glenmore Country House BB. We were delighted by what we found; a relaxed and charming old country house, with friendly owners Melissa and Alasdair on hand to help out with every request.
The house is set back from the road and looks down over the sea loch and has spectacular views. Melissa serves delicious breakfast, with homemade bread, yoghurt and fruit and organic jams from the organic walled garden next to the house. It is all home from home and very relaxing.
We could only stay one night but wished we had spent much more time, as it was our favourite stay of the entire holiday.

Room Tip: all three equally good

We were travelling around Scotland. When we came to Oban we took a look at Alastair Sawday's "Special Places To Stay". As the Glenmore B&B was mentioned in there [--] we did not hesitate to trust him so we called Glenmore and booked a Double Room for two nights.

When we came to the place we saw a lovely old manor that was not quite on the spot we hoped it to be - somewhere in a lovely old garden or forest, or maybe near the sea ... it was right beside the main road from Oban.
As the owner showed us the room we were already very much disgusted, but as it was very late and we were quite tired we agreed to stay.
On the way down I noticed an old painting of a stange girl called Nancy - this reminded me very much of a horror movie. From this moment we felt queasy. On the way to the local pub we agreed to stay only for one night and rushed away asap the following morning.

While this B&B may look lovely from the web-site, in actuality it's a DUMP! The house is threadbare and dirty, the rooms do not lock, and the "private" washroom facililities leave a lot to be desired (especially the sandpaper towels). We were booked into this property for several nights, but were so unnerved we left after one night, not even bothering to have breakfast.
