We loved this guest house. Our room was large and airy, overlooking the bay, and the breakfast was outstanding! The staff was warm and welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay as pleasurable as possible. I would definitely stay at the Glenrigh again on another trip to Oban.

Very friendly and welcoming staff. Provided with a beautiful self-contained lounge, bedroom and bathroom with direct access from the outside. Fluffy bathrobes and slippers laid out on an enormous double bed. TV in both the lounge and bedroom and a small decanter of Scottish Whisky on a side table. Breakfast was served in a lovely decorated breakfast room easily accessed,...

Had an excellent last minute nights break. Comfortable and relaxing suttoundings and spotlessly clean. Efficiently run by Iona and her staff and all very attentive. Easy walk into town along the shore front. Cannot fault and will return.

Comfortable room although a wee bit on the small size for a "superior" room. Room 10 on first floor has a nice view over the bay, a double bed, tv, tea/coffee facilities etc. the room door and en suite door both need a spray of oil on the hinges though! Breakfast was great both days! Easy 5-10mins walk into town....

Having stayed in several guest houses and hotels in Oban the Glenrigh has been the best yet. The enterance hall and stair case is stunning and the decor through out is beautiful. The room was spotless and well laid out tea, coffee cookies and even sherry. A nice firm mattress gave me an excellent nights sleep. Breakfast is something else...

Whilst on our honeymoon we spent two nights in Oban and chose this B&B because of it's great ratings - we haven't been disappointed. Excellent customer service - the first night we arrived at midnight - very spacious room, super yummy breakfast in a great location right next to the sea!! We were over the moon and will happily return...

After looking at lots of Oban hotels and guest houses I found this one, mainly picked for its parking admittedly but it was the best choice! Plenty of space to park yes (with bikes on back of car) but above all that the hotel was extremely welcoming and comfortable. We stayed in one of the studio rooms, which was huge....

Highly recommend this Bed & Breakfast for your next stay in Oban. Right on the waterfront and a short walk to town. Went out of their way to make sure our stay in Oban was great. Room arrangements were perfect for our family of 5 (three older children), they called to secure a table for us at Eeusk for dinner...
