We've stayed here a few times over the years and enjoy it every time. On this occasion our daughter wasn't well during our stay and Sheila went out of her way to help make sure she was ok. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you again Sheila. The house itself is lovely, great location and superb views of the harbour....

I rented this summer 2 bedrooms there and the accommodation is a fabulous typic front sea House based on the hill up to the Oban town, accessible by walk just down 2min. Bedrooms are spacious and clean. The location is perfect in the city including a Parking, and nights are quiet. Sheila is very kind and welcoming. Breakfast is prepared...

If you have the chance, stay here! A truly outstanding B&B. From the moment we arrived and our delightful host, Sheila asked us to take off our shoes, then made us a cuppa, we felt like we were at home! The captivating owners, Sheila and Kenneth really make the place special with their welcoming, kind and informative style as well...

My partner and I found this B & B and had spent a while driving that day so were touched to be welcomed with a pot of tea with cake and biscuits in their beautiful sitting room. We had a large room with ensuite bathroom which was comfortable even though the WiFi was a bit intermittent. The bed was comfortable...

Quiet surroundings. Panoramic views. Great big comfortable bed.Huge bathroom. Hot shower with soft fluffy towels. Fabulous breakfast, especially the fresh fruit platter, cooked breakfast and homemade cakes. Lots of comforting little touches. Absolute perfection. Will not even look at other accommodation now, when in Oban. Thank you Sheila and Kenneth!

Sheila and Kenneth could not have been friendlier or more accommodating on our recent, second visit. The house is in a beautiful setting, cleanliness is unsurpassed and we had no difficulty with Internet access in our spacious bedroom. We went to the lovely Isle of Luing - a three minute ferry trip to another world!

We spent another night at Loch Voil B&B in Oban in June. This was a very last minute booking, and Sheila and Kenneth couldn't be more helpful, welcoming and friendly. Kenneth booked us a table at Ee-usk restaurant, which was very helpful. On arrival, Sheila made us tea and coffee, with shortbread and chocolate biscuits. The breakfast is superb -...

Beautiful house, very warm and welcoming hosts and the best breakfast we have had in a B&B for a very long time. The room we had at the front of the house was large, spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated and furnished.The location is great and ideally situated for the ferry. I have been fortunate enough to stay in some...

When I read a negative review where most people had great experiences, I wonder what happened. And I feel a bit like that about our own experience. We had struggled up the steep paths from the ferry terminal and while the greeting was friendly the front door was closed again while we waited outside for Sheila to come and welcome...

Upon arrival at the imposing Lochvoil House (Scottish/Victorian vernacular architecture at its best) we were greeted by the charming Sheila with tea, shortbread and excellent carrot cake, a lovely example of Highland hospitality. The front bedrooms are clean and comfortable with terrific views across Oban and its harbour. Oldies should not be intimidated when driving up to the front of...
