“11 on a scale of 10”
Reviewed 20 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We absolutely loved our stay at 3 Oban. It's a rare case of a holiday apartment being better than the (great) photos. It is so bright and clean and fresh, while still being a cozy, comfortable nest to retreat to when the storm rolls in. 3 Oban is now on my top list of places I have stayed around the world.

The location is great. Completely quiet for sleeping yet walking distance to everything in town and particularly handy to the ferry and train stations. We were two friends staying and it worked perfectly for us, but the place would be equally great for families or a couple.

The kitchen has everything you need to eat meals in - place settings for 8, very good quality appliances and enough pots and pans. Grigor and Ruth had stocked tea, coffee, sugar, and salt and pepper (and not just stuff left over from previous guests like other places we stayed). We had a great tip from our lovely hosts at our hotel in Stirling to find the fresh fish and seafood markets by the ferry dock so we made delicious dinners with fresh fresh fish in the cute 3 Oban kitchen and breakfasts with the best smoked salmon in the world.

The wifi works well, and there are dvds and books for guests. There is a good information package about the apartment and local attractions. Grigor and Ruth were very easy to deal with before arriving and during our stay - always responded promptly to questions.

Our time in Oban was the highlight of our Scotland holiday and Grigor and Ruth's apartment was a major reason for that - how wonderful to have such a special place to come home to at the end of the day - and to wake up to! We plan to go back and spend much more time in this beautiful part of Scotland and look forward to having 3 Oban as a home base again sometime in the future.

“Great Bolt Hole For a break in Oban”
Reviewed 15 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I stayed in Thr3e Oban with a couple of friends when we had a weekend in Oban in early November. The flat was easy to find and parking was straightforward and within 50 yards. The flat was well equipped and ideal for our short stay. Grigor was very helpful allowing us early access and a later departure. I have been to Oban numerous times and whilst we were lucky with the weather, this was a great time to visit as the town was not over crowded but still bustling and lively. The flat was only a few minutes easy walk from the centre, so close to the station, piers, pubs and restaurants. Great views across the bay, always interesting watching ferries come and go. Thanks Grigor, Ruth, if staying in Oban again I'd certainly book number Thr3e.

“Simply Fantastic”
Reviewed 14 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We stayed for a weekend in November. The apartment is 5 minute walk from the station, harbour, shops & restaurants.
Beautifully & thoughtfully decorated throughout the apartment really does make you relax instantly. The view from the apartment is quite breathtaking.
We will definately be returning & soon! Owners were great to deal with, brilliant communication. Well done Ruth & Grigor.

“Stunning”
Reviewed 9 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed for a weekend break in October with friends. The apartment is beautiful and is only a 2 minute walk to the town centre. The view from the sitting room is stunning, you don't need a TV when the view from the rooms is so beautiful.

We will definitely be looking to return as soon as we can.
