After driving around the highlands all day we arrived a bit late in Oban and had a hard time to find a place to stay at this point. Along the road we saw this guesthouse and luckily there were two rooms available (it was 10 pm already). I got the single room that had a shared bathroom. I'm not a fan of shared bathrooms, but the price was ok and we basically had no choice. The owner was very nice, as was breakfast. The good thing about these small guesthouses is that the service is very personal. The guesthouse looks very nice on the outside and has free parking on the terrain which is a very nice plus. The inside looks a bit old, but I understand a refurbishment is on the way. The most important point though, the room was clean and the bed comfortable. The moment I put my head on the pillow I was out. The next morning the (shared) bathroom and the drain was full of hair, which is of course not very pleasant.
All in all I do recommend this guesthouse. I'd give it 3.5 stars, but I'll round it up to 4.
