We were lucky to get a room as we had not booked it. Right from the start it just felt perfect. Mary was a very nice host. The bedroom was very homely, beautiful fresh and smart and also it had a few nice touches. The breakfast was second to none, plenty choices and cooked to order what else could you... More

We spent two nights here. Mary clearly takes a pride in her house, and the decor is excellent. (Useful having a husband who's a painter & decorator!) The house is one in a row of guest houses, and is within easy walking distance of the centre of Oban. The room we had wasn't enormous, but it was certainly adequate and... More

Clean and comfortable guest house. Free WiFi and parking at rear of guest house. We had a twin room which had shower room across the landing, not ideal but good shower with gratis shower gel & plentiful thick towels. Delicious full Scottish breakfast with options of various cereals & fresh fruit incl strawberries & melon, fresh orange juice & yoghurts.... More

I had actually looked at the Gramarvan on line before we left home but couldn't book it as we weren't sure what date we'd be in Oban during our trip. The Information centre picked this as their first option and we immediately booked it. Lived up to our expectations. This is a very nice guest house in a very convenient... More

Lucky enough to have bagged the last room on arrival in Oban. Parking space at the back of the property ensured our car was safe and Mary quick happy to let you walk through her private accommodation after parking which gave us the homely feel and the feel that you were truly welcome within her home. Breakfast lovely and Mary... More

Stopped here on the last part of our journey around Scotland with friends. Lovely guest house, spotless, well positioned for going around Oban. The owners have a couple of parking spots at the rear, bonus to be able to leave the car there. Mary had breakfast spot on, lovely food well presented. Will certainly recommend to anyone we know heading... More

Spent a night here when we drove down from Inverness to oban last month. What a great drove! Anyway, we arrived pretty late at our guesthouse as we made several stops along the way. The room was well kept, comfortable and very clean. Better maintained than many expensive hotels I have stayed in. Location was great - less than five... More

Mary & Joe Hill have put together a cozy and warm and well-appointed B&B. Mu wife really liked the one and they were very helpful with restaurant suggestions. With the smallness of the town, it was great to have a place to park, which is no small detail.

In our tour through Scotland this B&B was the only original one that we stayed, Mary was very friendly and the breakfast was very nice. The situation very convenient. Nice choice for Oban, a nice town.
