Lovely couple running the business, staff incredibly helpful, well located a short walk from the town, with beautiful views and a lovely breakfast to round off a wonderful visit. Highly recommend this and would happily go back.

Room Tip: Get advice from Colin on where to eat, ferries and so on

Due to a missed flight connection, my fiancé and I arrived a day later than planned in Oban. Frances, the B&B hostess couldn't have been more helpful with our travel disruptions. Unfortunately we had to leave very early the next morning to catch the ferry to Tiree and were unable to partake of breakfast. We got a great dinner recommendation from France's husband - the Cuan Mor with the best sticky toffee pudding. You can walk to the restaurant from the Kilchrenan House, so you don't have to feel guilty about enjoying the delicious pudding!

We stopped in Oban on our trip south from Skye to Lake District. This B&B on the main waterside road, was perfect. Very large and beautiful room (9) with a waterside view, welcoming sherry, convenient and walkable to town center and restaurants, and private parking. Hosts were helpful and accommodating.

Kilchrenan House came highly recommended from another B&B host, and since they are right on the esplanade with full views of the ocean it fit the bill perfectly. Since I was winging my itinerary I wasn't able to book a full week here, but was happy I got the chance to stay for a few days. Easy walking into town, close to both a woodland walking path, a sandy beach, the war memorial, Dunollie Castle, and directly across from the shore it was a perfect homebase to explore Oban.

Frances is an amazing host and I wish I could bottle her high energy and add it to my morning coffee.

One tip: if you're tall you'll want to avoid booking a top floor room (attic conversion for you Americans) or you'll have to be careful not to hit your head on the corners. I'm short and still had to pay attention. But it was clean and bright and lovely and I'd gladly stay here again. The good news, you can pick your room out on their website, just don't wait til the last minute like I did.

I wasn't driving a car but there is ample parking for those of you that do.
