Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Wide-mouthed Frog. Stayed in Room 5 which was spacious and clean with lovely views. The breakfast was really good and can't fault the service. Would definitely stay here again!

Visited this place twice while on a sailing trip. The first time things seemed to be OK, but the bill got messed up and the woman we now know was the owner was not interested in sorting it out. The second time we visited she was hammered. The waitress who showed us to our table gave us menus and talked...

We drove for 4 hours to get here! The food is just stunning, the staff are friendly and helpful and nothing was to much trouble. The view from the Resturant over the Maria and the loch compliments the food. We opted for seafood, which was freshly cooked and tasted amazing.

We stayed for three nights in a lovely large twin room with Marina Views. The staff were wonderful especially Rick the owner who made us feel so welcome and was very accomodating. The breakfast was great,plenty of choices & cooked to perfection.We had our own transport so only a short ride to Oban Town. We would definitely stay here again...

Disappointing venue. I was travelling with my daughter and this was by far the worst B&B we stayed at. The room smelt strange and the bathroom smelt like a poorly cleaned public toilet. We were in room number 8 and the traffic kept us awake all night. Incredibly noisy. The bed linen was very itchy too - maybe the detergent...

Popped in with a motor home(large car park) as we were very hungry from a drive up from Dumfries and Galloway. Had the baby with us and there was no issue with breastfeeding or anything . Food was delicious , I had the steak and would recommend it but the seafood options look the best choice. Deserts also great(apple pie...

The Wide Mouthed Frog is a wonderful small inn just outside of Oban. Located at a beautiful marina, the rooms are modern and generous. Breakfast is included. The bar is warm, friendly and inviting. As an American traveling, I found the staff genuine and welcoming. I highly recommend it.

Spent one night here, and was rather disappointed. The room we were given was right above the bar, and through the course of the night we heard all of the noise, including what sounded like at least one fight. There was also an air conditioner compressor right outside the room, which made a constant, loud hum throughout the night. The...
