Gramarvin Guest House
Ranked #21 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2012

I will second the comments concerning Gramarvin's convenience to everything in Oban and that the owner keeps the property spotlessly clean. It is also a fine value.

I wish that I had known that the owner will not accept a credit card for payment, a policy that was never communicated in the email correspondence or on their web page. Perhaps this is a common policy but it came as an unwelcome surprise to me and caused some anxiety and wasted time. Lesson learned.

Fantastic host, cosy comfy modern rooms, super location for town and it's many restaurants and shops. Breakfast was great lots of choice and veggie options. I would not hesitate to recommend this BnB.

Loved this guest house! Me and my boyfriend decided to go to Oban for the weekend. Although Oban is not a very exciting place to go this guest house made our stay much more enjoyable. Mary was so friendly and made us feel at home straight away. The room was gorgeous and very clean. The breakfast was made to consistantly high standard also! Rooms are very affordable and I would recommend to everyone to go and stay at Gramarvin if youare looking for a relaxing break.

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at Gramarvin. We were so impressed last time that we even changed our holiday dates as Mary was fully booked on our first choice of dates. We would not now stay anywhere else in Oban. There has been no change of quality since our 1st visit. Mary is so friendly and spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are superb. Couldn't get a better brekky in a 5 star hotel! Read my first review if you want the details. Nothing has changed.

Room Tip: If you have difficulty with stairs ask for 1st floor.

Very nice, clean and friendly. Could not find my way late at night called for help and they came to show the way. Would love to come visit again and would stay here.

This is now one of my return visits to this B&B in Oban and as ever the stay was wonderful. The owners are extremely helpful and accommodating. Have been travelling around Scotland for a couple of weeks and had nowhere to stay after the Gramarvin and despite them being fully booked the owner still helped us in finding somewhere to stay afterwards. Great place to stay and would recommend it to anyone
