4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2009

We stayed at this lovely Guesthouse for four nights arriving in early May. Its very easy to locate and is about 3 miles outside of Oban. this concerned us initially but we found it very convenient and so much better than being in the busy seaside town itself that it became a very big plus. Jon and Cherry welcomed us and even helped us in with our bags. very nice room with lovely views over the Loch nice welcome tray and a comfy BIG bed.
Breakfast was amazing, home made food loads of it and really nicely prepared and presented it was so good we decided to opt for an evening meal. Oban is lovely I remember it from childhood and it was so exciting taking my husband round all the places I remember. The scenery is stunning and we saw Eagles and Deer and Seals which made the holiday really special. I think the 100 single malt whiskies in the bar made the holiday special for my husband ..that and the wonderful food. Would we come back a definite yes..would we stay longer again a definite yes would we recommend Braeside we already have Mum and Dad are booked in for later in the year.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2008

At 17.00, seeking a place to stay in the pouring rain, we came across the Braeside Guest House with a vacancy sign!! Into the car park and 'yes' a Twin en suite was available. John made us feel very welcome and directed us to the rear car park which has direct access to the houes. Good size room with storage space for those intending to stay for a few days. Excellent shower pressure and everything exceptionally clean. Evening meals available served in the lounge/breakfast room if booked in the morning (John has a small bar and wine list ) so we had to go to the local pub (3 miles) which was average. Free WIFI access or the use of his laptop when required. Those little extras that define the 'top' from the average - 4 chocolates in a dish by the bed, face cloths in the bathroom, a room folder with all the local info. One of the longest breakfast menus I have come across ( porridge in Scotland is a must !!) All this makes a location 1st class. A definite YES if you are staying in the Oban area.

  • Liked — Clean, comfortable room.
  • Disliked — It always rains in Scotland!
