The rooms are fine and decorated well. We never did find the parking lot but there was ample street parking. We were within a 5 minute walk to the high street activities, and 10-15 minutes from the ferry terminal. The wifi signal was fine. It's easy to get locked out of the room, which happened to us. We were quite disappointed by the lack of breakfast.

We had a bit of a problem getting here as the ferry was 2 hours late (9pm), however the owner reassured us our booking was OK and left the keys for us. The room was great, with one of the best en-suites we have used- spacious shower and loads of hot water. Continental breakfast was pretty comprehensive although a cooked breakfast was available at a nearby cafe if needed. There was a spacious sitting room, car parking at the rear and we had a really restful nights sleep. Very friendly and helpful owner- we recommend it

ACCOMMODATION - My husband and I stayed one night in Room 3. It contained 3 twin beds and was roomy enough for 3 persons, clean and comfortable. Tea/coffee supplies were in the room along with biscuits. The bedding was clean as was the bathroom and the beds comfortable.

- We were met on arrival by a young couple who made us most welcome and gave us good information about our location. We ate in Coasters, which was recommended and were happy with our surroundings and the food. There are pubs close by and you can hear patrons leaving, if they are noisy, but it seems all the local establishments had signs up asking their patrons to respect the peace and quiet of the local neighbours, which greatly impressed us.

LOCATION - This guest house is one street up from the water and the downtown area. Excellent location. We had no problems following directions to it and were able to get in and out of town very quickly. It is actually in a row of guest houses.

OVERALL - Accommodation is quite expensive in Scotland and for what we received for our money as well as considering the location, we felt this was good value for the price...approximately $145. Canadian, which could have accommodated three persons. Other rooms are available at different prices. Would stay for an overnight again.

We only stayed the one night en route to Mallaig and were very happy with the facilities. Lets face it if you want a big room with loads of cupboard space and a fancy view stay in a hotel, if you want somewhere to shower and sleep stay here, a great location, a great price, very clean and the owners were very friendly. We would stay again...

Cameron Guest House is in a really great location and a short walk to central Oban.

We had a family room with shared bathroom. The latter raised some issues as it is not clear if the bathroom is occupied or not.

The room was comfortable but small.

Don't get trapped and order an overpriced continental breakfast from the guest house ... we walked five minutes and got a far better breakfast at less than half the price.

As for the landlord .... didn't see him / her during two nights stay ... keys were left behind a door and we left money in an envelope. A little strange!

The guesthouse was well situated, the room clean, the bed comfortable and the owner very friendly. However, the facilities were disappointing, particularly in relation to space. My wife and I stayed for 2 nights in room 2. The hanging space consisted of 4 hooks on the wall with 3 coathangers! Drawer storage was 2 slim drawers, one attached to either end of the headboard. As a result, our luggage was not unpacked during our stay. The en-suite bathroom was tiny, with the washhand basin hard against one wall, making the task of washing and shaving somewhat tricky. In addition to the double bed, there was also a single bed in the room, taking up more space (and the only place we could store our luggage). I'm only glad there there were just 2 of us and we weren't staying any longer than 2 nights. Breakfast was not available during our stay, so I am unable to comment on service.

The price is really cheap for such a guest house in the centre of Oban. The room is big and beautiful even with a horse painting by Beihong Xu on the wall.
