“Oban Jaunt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2012

Mary and Joe are 2 of the nicest people we have ever met, a warm friendly welcome and nothing too much trouble.
The guest house itself is immaculate and exceptionally clean but very comfortable at the same time. The breakfast is to die for and off road private parking as well!!!
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Gramarvin to anyone.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 1 which was excellent but all the rooms are of the same exceptional standard.

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.
