We have now stayed at this accommodation three times in seven year. Whilst it is still fairly good it is not as good as it was. Not much choice for breakfast and the rooms are becoming dated. In saying that it is still god value for money for a short break. It is in a great location , quiet but... More

Lovely guesthouse! Rooms are well decorated and comfortable. The owner is so lovely, carrying our bags up the stairs for us without us asking. Great views from the front of the hotel. Downside is my room had to share a bathroom with another but apart from that it was a fantastic stay and I feel refreshed ready for the rest... More

We stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. Irene and John were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were spotlessly clean and breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of food. There was ample off street parking, the centre of Oban was just a short walk away. We will certainly be returning here in... More

Within a 10 minute walk from the harbour, this is a great B&B to stay. Breakfast was great, the rooms comfortable, and the owners friendly. We had a very restful night and wished that we would have stayed more than on night.

The most welcoming guest house one could wish for, excellent choice and good portions of food. The room well furnished and modern. Most obliging couple whose aim is to please.
