We stayed just one night but thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay. The place was full yet the hosts made time for guests - a very nice welcome, very friendly and helpful. Breakfast provided a good selection to suit a wide variety of tastes. The situation is good, right on the esplanade though away from the really busy part, yet still...

Room 15 was stunning and spotlessly clean. Huge bay window looking out on all the Cal Macs and yachts coming and going. Stunning views and sunsets and that's before you've even left the room. Room facilities were great - couldn't fault anything. The hosts were friendly and helpful, and breakfast perfect! Lovely walk round to the town centre. Far enough...

We arrived to a friendly greeting from Frances, after ringing the doorbell at check-in time. She kindly showed us to our rooms, gave us restaurant recommendations when we asked about that, offered us the whiskey and sherry that were in the lobby, and told us about breakfast and the order form for cooked breakfasts. Just talking with her made us...

Very friendly, very clean, very comfortable, great breakfast. It's on the esplanade, so there is a little walk along the front to the town centre, but that's part of the holiday, and this year there were black guillemots breeding in the sea wall, so you watch them up close as you walked by. There was also a small sensory garden...

Return visit with my partner to Kilchrenan, and what a perfect holiday! I have holidayed all over the world, but my favourite place is Oban and Kilchrenan - no, seriously. For the most chilled out and scenic holiday, this is it! Fran, Col and Katherine and Co. are lovely, genuine folk, who make it their vocation to ensure everyone has...

Our second visit to Oban and Kilchrenan House and wont be the last. Stayed in Room 5 (again) with an excellent view over the Esplanade and Oban Bay. Kilchrenan House is only a few minutes walk away from the town centre, shops and the ferry terminal but quiet and comfortable. Our rooms was fantastic and from speaking to the other...

My niece and I stayed at Kilchrenan House for two nights this June. Colin welcomed us with our choice of sherry or whisky and showed us to our lovely room (twin room, #4) overlooking the sea. He also gave us lots of excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do and see in the area. Breakfast was excellent, and the...

I felt like we arrived at a family or very close friends' home when we walked in and were greeted by our hosts Colin and Frances! It was chilly outside and there was a fire going in the fireplace and we were offered a welcoming sherry or whiskey. We stayed in Room 4 which is at the front of the...
