“Good value. Rooms on street side quite noisy.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

We stayed 1 night with our 2 teenagers. We were staying in the family room and my teens slept on the sofa bed which was definitely not suitable for 2 teens (although they are quite slim and not really tall). Very nice breakfast, great service.

Hello Folks,
Thank you for writing this review even although you were not totally happy. Unfortunately I cannot do anything about the traffic. Think if you are use to traffic you do not hear it as being that bad, if you live in a quiet area you hear it as being noisy. I have all my window double & triple glazed, that is the best I can do. Very interested in your comment about the sofa bed not being suitable for teenagers. I have said it is ok for older children after asking a family that used it if they thought it was ok. I will keep your comment in mind for the future.

I really cannot fault anything about the B&B. Morven and Keith are immensely welcoming and go that extra mile to make sure guests are comfortable and can make the most of their time in Oban. Rooms are spotless, tea, coffee and biscuits everyday and a little extra that helped with the very high temperatures was a fan in the room. Breakfast was brilliant too.
Personal highlights of Oban are: basking shark tours, having a flying lesson from Oban Airport, Skipinnish Ceilidh, Oban distillery, driving to ancient artefacts in Kilmartin and visiting Crinan and finally hiking on Kerrera.

Good value. Room was clean and comfortable. Short walk into town with off-street parking. Owner was very friendly, and provided a nice packed breakfast (we were booked on the early ferry the next morning).

We had a really lovely stay here prior to an Outer Hebrides tour in July 2014. Our twin room was comfortable, with a lovely bathroom and nice facilities. Breakfast was wholesome and very tasty and the welcome we received was very friendly. An excellent stay and highly recommended for travellers of all sorts.

Very friendly b & b. Comfortable, well equipped room. Good bed so excellent sleep. A satisfying and well cooked breakfast to start the day off well. Owner and staff very friendly. Convenient for local supermarkets and walking to the town centre. Good off street parking. Good visit.

Room Tip: Room 5 was compact but had all necessary facilities. Comfortable bed to ensure good sleep.
