What a pleasure it was to stay at The Barriemore. We stayed in suite A which is on the ground floor and is very spacious and extremely comfortable. We were welcomed by Mark and offered a dram of whisky - lovely touch, then shown to our room which also had complimentary sherry - another lovely gesture. The location is perfect...

The location of this place is within walking distance of the centre of town and there was plenty on site parking. The welcome is very friendly, the family room was just what we needed and the breakfast was excellent.

We stayed here for one night after a trip to Mull. Mark was very helpful. The complimentary whisky and sherry on offer was a lovely touch. Only disappointing feature was the shower- having long hair it wasn't quite powerful enough to rinse it properly. Beautiful views of Oban bay.

Thank you for your lovely review, I am sorry the shower wasn't powerful enough. We are still in the process of renovating bathrooms each winter and have 4 left to do. Getting back onto that shortly as we close in a few days for the winter. Jan and Mark

Very welcoming, friendly staffed hotel. In a lovely location on the sea front. The room was clean and well appointed.We were given a dram of whiskey on arrival and there was a complementary decanter of sherry in the room! There was a great choice for breakfast which was included in the price. Good value for money.

Staff are very friendly and welcoming. Really nice bedroom, well appointed and very spacious. The breakfasts were delicious. The complimentary 'dram' on arrival was both welcoming and appreciated. The Barriemore is only a short 10 mins walk into the centre of Oban.

Great location. Good beds. Yummy breakfast. Rooms ver very spacious and clean. There was a large assortment of breakfast choices - and a traditional Scottish breakfast. Gotta love any place that has a tartan carpet. Beautiful location on the edge of the town, adjacent to the sea and around the corner from the Dunollie castle

We loved our stay at the Barriemore. We stayed in a room right off the entrance on the first floor, with the tartan sofa. We had fabulous views of Oban Bay, and enjoyed the binoculars that were left for us to use. Check in was quick and easy, and we were thrilled to have a wee dram to welcome us...

Having returned to Oban for the second time in a week, we were delighted with the accommodation at the Barriemore. We had a ground floor room (nice change when accommodation hopping), which was tastefully decorated and had plenty of space. We were welcomed with a nip of whisky and had some sherry in the room.
