“Pretty good, but can be improved.”
Reviewed 7 October 2010

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.

We arrived before the house was opened, but we had good luck to face the hostess in the back yard, so we luckily could drop our luggage to enjoy the afternoon. But despite we have had e-mail correspondence six month ago, our booking seemed hardly to be found again. So, better double check your booking some days before you appear.
The hand-wash basin is in the small double-room, but there is a small en-suite shower. Breakfast was good.

We have stayed at The Sgeir Mhaol Guest House many tımes over the years sınce i was a child. They are very frıendly. The people who run The Guest House go out of theır way to make you feel comfortable. Every tıme i am ın Oban i stay at The Sgeir Mhaol. There is free off road parkıng at the back and you have only a short walk to the centre of Oban. Oban ıs a great place to base yourself ıf you wish to visit the many islands of Scotland

We had a double room with ensuite bathrooom, it is clean and comfy, with a nice breakfast.
You have a free car park in the back of the house and it is quiet as no room are directly on the street.
A nice plus, the host was very nice and friendly.
