Thanks to this lovely, charming guest house I would happily visit Oban again. Mary made me feel very welcome from the moment I arrived. All the personal touches made the difference, rooms so clean and fresh. Best breakfast I've had in ages (veggie sausages always help!) and lovely fresh coffee a rare treat :-)

Very nice, clean & comfortable B&B located just a short walk from main strip of Oban. Surrounded by lots of bars and restaurants. The lady running the B&B was very welcoming and easy to talk to. Breakfast was great and she couldn't do enough for you whilst being very polite in doing so. I would recommend this place and would...

We spent Easter weekend at the Gramarvin guesthouse- the owner Mary was absolutely lovely, the room was clean, stylish and spacious, the mattress was supremely comfortable, and the breakfasts were smashing. It's a short stroll to the harbour and "town centre" but it's on a quiet street. I dare you to find fault with this lovely place.

Spent 3 nights at the Gramarvin. Lovely, quiet location but really close to town, harbour and restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Spotlessly clean, breakfast excellent. Friendly and welcoming hosts. A real pleasure to stay there. Would highly recommend.

In addition the bed we had was...

Very welcoming, clean B&B in Oban, walking distance from restaurants, shops & ferries. Excellent breakfast with lots of choice and fresh fruit / continental options as well as the cooked options. The breakfast room is lovely and bright, a great way to start the day. Our room was tastefully decorated and spacious. Excellent shower. The curtains were a bit odd...

Gramarvin is a good value guest house, a few minutes walk to the harbour, with a welcoming host Mary, and spotlessly clean rooms. The whole place has been recently redecorated from top to bottom, it's absolutely immaculate. Free mini-eggs in the room too, but I expect that's an Easter-only thing. Service was very good - when we had a problem...

Used Oban as a base for visiting surrounding areas and Mull. Stayed at Gramarvin for 3 nights. Excellent location, quiet but easy to access the town, 10 minute walk to the Calmac pier. Excellent sized double room. Immaculately clean with a very comfortable bed. Very modern ensuite. Very friendly, professional, welcoming host. Superb breakfasts! Would definitely recommend
