Perched above Oban, you'll find the most amazing views of the harbour. Well equipped room with many extras. Value for money stay. Small bathroom but clean. Wifi not that good in the room. Would definitely stay again.

All sorts of additional hospitality was greatly aporeciated and family room, adjacent kitchen, and adjacent bathroom felt like we had a whole flat! Fabulous views from the room and we were able to park outside.

Room was smallish, bed needed a new mattress & the bathroom tiny, but it was clean and for a 1 night stay it was perfectly fine. We loved the views overlooking the town and bay. 5 minute walk down a hill to the town, it was interesting walking back up it slightly drunk! No breakfast but we could help ourselves...

We stayed at the B&B whilst attending a family party. It is situated halfway up the hill with beautiful views over Oban bay . The rooms were fine and clean and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast is the use of a communal kitchen. Would happily stay there again

Another great stay, thank you Carolyn! This place suited us perfectly - as a family travelling with a small baby. We could help ourselves to breakfast at any time, our room was large enough for a travel cot, the views were to die for & there was ample parking outside. The only downside to our stay is the guests who...

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of June and wished we could have stayed longer. The room was clean and had tea, coffee and cookies as well as wrapped candies, which were a real treat. The kitchen was well stocked so I was able to eat some toast and a muffin before going out for the day. Caroline...

We stayed at this B&B the night of June 4th. We didn't book ahead of time, but found it through Trip Advisor. Modest accommodations. Nothing special. What really irritated me was the £5 charge to do laundry and the machine didn't do anything but wet my clothes and maybe semi wash them. The dryer didn't work despite me putting my...

We stayed here at the start of a cycling trip. The B&B is lovely and clean, with understated but smart decor in the twin room we had in the attic. It is also in a lovely location up the hill from the main part of Oban (5 minute walk). We were not expecting breakfast but the owner showed us to...

This guest house is basically run unstaffed. Noone there to welcome us, but the key could be picked up from a board in the entrance. The room (no 1) was clean and functional, but very small and no view whatsoever. Just a skylight window. Breakfast is served in a nearby café, run by the guest house's owner, and it was...
