Raniven Guest House
Ranked #36 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Reviewed 11 February 2013

My husband and I stayed in this guesthouse for one night and could not find fault with our stay here. The owners were so friendly and helpful, the room was spotless (most important) and the breakfast was excellent. I don't normally post reviews but thought that this B&B deserved it, we will stay here again.

The Campbell's were wonderful hosts - so helpful & friendly. Their B & B is lovely, spotless, close to everything. The food was delicious, and they made us feel so welcome. We stayed again at the end of our trip. Highly recommend Raniven House.

Stayed one night at the Raniven B&B during our Scotland roadtrip. Friendly owners, clean room, off street parking, close walk to just about everything in town. Even an Irish pub across the street for a nightcap. We highly recommend this B&B.

When you read this report, you need to know I was travelling on a motorcycle so needed secure off road parking and the accommodation needed to be close to a pub, bar or town centre to get a meal at night and I was only staying for one night before moving on, so with this in mind read on.

The guest house is in a great location being only a few minutes’ walk from the center of town yet in a very quiet street, there are plenty of places to eat in Oban and the fish is amongst the best I have tasted. My room was on the top floor and had a double bed with en suit, it was somewhat compact but as there was only me and I was staying one night, it was not a problem. The shower was fine with lots of pressure. In the morning there was plenty to eat, enough to cover all tastes.

All in all it was a good place to stay and I will be happy to use it again. Thanks for reading.

A friend & myself just travelled around Scotland on our motorbikes without booking anywhere, we went to Oban & struggled too find somewhere suitable, eventually we came accross the "raniven" The owner greeted us and solved all our problems, off street parking for the bikes, excellent & clean twin room & unbelievable amount of choice at the breakfast buffet. Although could have done with a full fry up to help us on our day (cant have everything). Perfect location quiet street near the town centre.

Room Tip: We had top floor room facing the street, no problems.

The central location with offstreet parking made this b & b a good choice for our one night stay in Oban. Many establishments will not accept advance bookings for a single night at this time of year so we appreciated the fact that the owners were happy to accommodate us. Our bedroom was not large but was cosy and had an ensuite bathroom with bath and shower . The highlight of our stay had to be the breakfast - an amazing spread which would cater for most international tastes. It was presented buffet style and consisted of a wide selection of breads, preserves. yoghurtts, cold meats,cheeses, fresh fruits, cereals, waffles, syrups, cakes, fruit juices, teas, coffees . . . . and even a hot section for those who need their bacon, sausage and eggs in the morning. As we appeared to be the only native Scots in the breakfast room, I think that the owners have got their catering absolutely right - our only problem was dragging ourselves away from all the delicious offerings and out into the rain! Excellent value for money and the breakfast alone would bring us back!

The b&b is close the city center, 3 minutes by walk. The room was very beautiful and clean. the breakfast is continental with fresh fruit, yogurt, cereals, bread, cakes, ham cheese and all you need for a really good breakfast. Wi fi available.
