We visited Oban to see the highland games and stayed overnight in Failte. The rooms were impeccably clean with a wonderful attention to detail, breakfast was one of the best I've ever had in a B&B with a very broad choice of different meals, and the owner went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable and pleasant...

Thomas greeted us on arrival and provided us with great information. He went out of his way when we needed to get up very early to join the standby queue on the Mull ferry. Failte B&B is very clean. Attention to detail (down to immaculate cloth napkins) home made yoghurt and fresh fruit and bread. Thomas is very attentive and...

Stopped here en route to getting the ferry to mull and Iona. Agree with the previous reviews, everything about it was perfect especially the wide choice of breakfast that was beautifully presented in a lovely room overlooking Oban.

A delightful B&B, most hospitable host, lovely location and great breakfasts. Outstanding. Thomas is a very caring and considerate host and many visitors return to this B&B. Parking is right outside on a very quiet attractive street. would definitely return.

Really glad to stay here. Such a lovely welcome from Thomas and Isabel, great pot of tea with shortbread and amazing breakfasts! Comfy bed and clean room with nice touches of art. Local produce is championed here with a genuine enthusiasm for making recommendations for things to see & experience in what is a gem of the west coast.

We stayed here after a week cycling round the highlands, Thomas was so welcoming and accommodating to our late check in. Such a well presented and furnished b + b with excellent attention to detail (local chocolates by bed etc!) Exceptional breakfast using local produce, the highlight being the black pudding! Would happily pay a lot more to stay here.
