This is an amazing building on a hill and, from our room, delivered a splendid view of the town and bay. With a magnificent hallway and wide staircase the building's classic styling is complimented with a minimalist white interior and superior furnishings, soft furnishings and quality toiletries. Breakfast was good, my wife particularly liked the traditional cranachan, with spectacular views... More

Wonderful stay at Greystones, beautiful room, lovely owners and the breakfast was simply amazing. The attention to detail was fantastic. Only disappointment was no bath in our room. Brilliant views and superb house.

Thank you for you review. I’m sorry if there was any misunderstanding about the room you stayed in having a bath. The description on our website clearly states that that particular room (our Standard Sea View Double) just has an en-suite shower room and the photo for that room does not show a bath. I apologise if you were misled... More

We stayed in Room 1 of this fabulous B and B for one night . I don't know what I can add to the previous positive comments from other reviewers, except to say 'go and experience this for yourself'. A million miles removed from the 'traditional' seaside town B and B, this is more boutique hotel and a very special... More

Both rooms were stunning and could not fault Greystones at all . Suzanne and Mark are the perfect hosts and run a very well organised ship.... More

Stayed five nights at this beautiful B&B. The room we were in was huge, with a large and very comfy box spring bed and a stunning view! Both the bedroom and bathroom were clean. Breakfast has to be picked on the night before and is very tasty.

First of all, the provided driving directions to Greystones were perfect! Due to Ferry/weather issues we arrived about 5 hours earlier than anticipated, but received an understanding welcome, and a spot to rest in this beautiful home before heading out on our explorations. Greystones is simple elegance in its decoration...very calming and relaxing, modern with great respect for the heritage... More

This is the perfect place to decompress after arriving in Glasgow from Vancouver. The location is great, leave the car in their car park and walk into town to the ferries or shops and eateries. The owners could not have been more accommodating. Our room looked over the town and harbor, with a lovely sitting area by the window. It... More

Oban was the last stop of our 2 week vacation and we were thrilled with the accommodations. We stayed in the turret room and it was well worth every cent for the spaciousness, the luxury, and the amazing view of the bay. It was hard to leave the room, it was so lovely. Every evening we sat in the reading... More

Beautifully renovated 1800's luxury home--a blend of the best of the old and new. This B & B sits high on a hill, at the end of cul de sac overlooking the sea. The rooms are large, spacious and tastefully appointed. The dining room overlooks the sea and serves delicious breakfast. This is a wonderful place to stay in Oban.

This is the most stylish, friendly and just plain beautiful place I have ever stayed in. There was a huge choice of gourmet offerings for breakfast. The whisky porridge and kedgeree were delicious. Very handy for walking around Oban too,
