“Excellent stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2012

I don't like long reviews so I will rate our stay in the High Cliff B&B in point form;
1/ Views were ok for a B&B in a town the size of Oban.
2/ Accommodation was of a high standard regarding all internal decorations which goes to reflect the attention to detail the owners strive for.
3/ Maureen is an excellent host and tries her very best to satisfy her guests.
4/ Breakfast, including the room were second to none.

I foolishly left a t-shirt in the wardrobe which Maureen promptly and kindly posted to me.
I have no hesitation in recommending this B&B to other TA readers.

Unfortunately we arrived late (off the ferry from Barra) and had to leave early in the morning. We therefore perhaps could not fully appreciate all that High Cliff had to offer. The bedroom (Tiree)was small but well decorated, exceptionally clean and had a good comfy bed. The bathroom, similarly, was scrupulously clean and well fitted and decorated.

Again, due to time constraints, we didn’t have the ability to enjoy the full Scottish breakfast, but what we had was very good in the beautifully laid dining room.

For the price that we paid, I think this B&B was great value for money, even though we didn’t get chance to fully appreciate it.

A wide selection of dishes at breakfast, very comfortable bed, ample parking, all for a very reasonable price. Personally I could not fault my stay here.

We stayed in the tiny Tiree room, which was decorated with dark and heavy draperies and bedding. There was barely enough room on the floor to open two carry-on sized suitcases; there were so many decorative bed pillows that we had to use the bathtub to put them and the spread in overnight. There was a small table that was pretty useless to the traveler, since it had personal decorative items on it. The bathroom had a step up from the bedroom - dangerous if you get up during the night. Breakfasts were very good, and our hosts accommodating. It was a good 20 minute walk to the harbor area. Check-in was not until 4 PM per a note on the door, which we were not informed of when we booked the room..

Room Tip: I don't recommend booking Tiree room, as it is too tiny for two people, and has a step-up to the...

We really enjoyed our stay at this bed and breakfast. We were in the Lismore room and it was very luxurious. It was perfect for our romantic getaway for a couple of days. The owner was friendly and approachable but also gave us the space we wanted to enjoy our time there. The breakfast was lovely and I couldn't fault anything. There was plenty of it and the quality was high. The location of the B&B is perfect for getting into town. You are far enough away from the hustle and bustle but no need for taxis to get to places to eat and drink.

My Husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and found this a perfect place to stay. The whole place was furnished to a high standard. Our room was most beautifully decorated with everything you could possible need. Our bed was the most comfortable bed i have ever slept in I want it!! even a large screen tele came out the foot of the bed!
Maureen obviously knows her buisiness well and decorated the whole house professionally and gives an excellent service with breakfast to die for. So much choice and the food being of high quality.
We would recomend this guest house from our experience and it is also a good base for going to visit the islands.
