I stayed here with a friend for two nights. Simply put, Raniven Guest house is an excellent place to stay. Moira and Stuart are warm and welcoming. The room was very clean, with lovely decor. The breakfast was the best we had during our travels, we liked the continental-help-yourself-set-up. Oban is a beautiful town, well worth a stop over.

A great location for your visit to Oban. Clean and well equipped. Buffet breakfast is very good too. It has its own parking. So nice restaurants near by too. Would recommend this b&b for your visit. The owner is very nice and polite without being pushy.

Lovely friendly, kind and helpful people - nothing was too much trouble, and their local knowledge and tips were extremely enjoyable! Very clean and comfortable room (Room 5). Tasty, well-prepared buffet breakfast, with a wide selection.

We stayed here for 1 night after having spent a week on Mull. The rooms are very clean, and the bed very comfortable, and the breakfast is good too. The owners were very friendly, making it a pleasure to stay here. With free parking and being close to the town centre this is highly recommended. Will definitely be back next...

This was our second stay at the Raniven guest house which says it all, great situation with a 5 min walk into Oban and has its own off street parking which I would imagine in high season is a great bonus.
