Lovely b&b. Great location. We had a spectacler view over oban and the sea. Very clean. Big room. Loads of storage. Only negative, due to covid restrictions you only get a pre-prepared basket of continental breakfast which might not be to everyone's taste, so there is a lot of wastage of food. BTW, you do get offered a hot bacon or sausage butty, but not vegetarian.

Thank you for your review. We are delighted to enjoyed your stay. I would like to say that we see all the hampers coming back and there is very little wastage off food. We provide a paper bag so that any left overs can be taken away to be eaten later in the day too. Also anyone who is vegetarian, gluten free, etc usually lets us know and we prepare their food seperately and we do this frequently. If you had let us know you were vegetarian then we would have happily provided you with hot food too. We provide frequent communication prior to arrival, so that everyone knows the breakfast is a continental hamper. This information is also visible at the point of booking. I just wanted to make that clear for the benefit of future guests. We have had mostly fab feeback regarding the hampers. Jan and Mark

I cannot fault this B&B. It is well situated on the sea front. The place is spotless. The decor is pleasing to the eye with quality fittings and toileteries. The breakfast currently is a hamper to your room but this is because of covid. If you had to provide a hamper then you couldn’t beat this one. They also go out of their way to provide hot rolls to take back to your room. Hats off to a fine establishment.

It is always a joy to return to the Barriemore, especially during these troubled times. Mark and Jan have coped admirably with the COVID regulations, and the breakfast hampers are wonderful and varied. The addition of hot breakfast rolls was much appreciated,especially the sausages! Whatever the weather, the views are amazing, so try for a seaview room. This must have one of the best locations in town, a beautiful house. We discovered the Barriemore many years ago under previous ownership, but Mark and Jan have taken it to a different level of welcome and comfort.
