This was our 3rd stay at Kilchrenan House and each time myself and my daughter have stayed in room 12. The room has lovely views across the bay, it has been redecorated since our stay last year and also has a new shower which was super. We will be back again next year, a friendly welcome, clean room and excellent...

Hotel is well located within walking distance of the town and restaurants. Room (6) had great views across the Sound of Mull so worth paying the extra for. Not a large room but big enough, only negative is it had a shower and not a bath but that is made clear on booking. Bed comfy, room quite and a wide...

Stayed here back in April 2016. As it was the start of a long break hopping round Scotland, we wanted to stay somewhere that would help us feel relaxed & cosy. This did it and then some. Managed to book one of the best rooms for just the 1 night overlooking the bay and was so pleased, absolutely stunning views...

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and every time we find Kilchrenan very comfortable and the owners so welcoming. Great breakfast in the morning with a varied choice of food. Lovely views from the bedroom window. Nothing is too much trouble. Very spacious rooms and dining room. Highly recommend to everyone. First class.

The room had everything you would need – en-suite, large flat-screen, hairdryer, coffee/tea, sofa (w/ binoculars to view across the bay), wi-fi, toiletries, etc. I was met by Frances and Colin,...

We stayed in Room 5. It has a magnificent view. One day we spent most of the day just sitting in the comfortable chairs looking out at the activities on the water. Oban is a lovely town. Lots to do and a good jumping off place for numerous ferries. The B&B was very nice and Colin and Frances were very...
