Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

Myself and my husband stayed here for two nights for our ten year wedding anniversary. We stayed in room 2 which had a fantastic view over the sea. The room itself was gorgeous and the sherry was a lovely touch. The breakfasts were first class. All in all we had a great couple of nights there and would definitely book in again. All staff were extremely pleasant.

We spent a couple of lovely nights at the Barriemore. It is wonderfully positioned at the end of the road next to the sea. There was a fantastic view of the sea from our room. Breakfast was excellent with choices of the usual "full English" plus the option of kippers or smoked salmon. Overall a great guest house.

Room Tip: We had the suite on the ground floor overlooking the sea. Great room but quite expensive.

Our family of four (two adults and two teenagers) had an enjoyable stay at the Barriemore Guest House! We had a family room that had a queen bed and a pull out sofa (which was not as comfortable as the bed.) Our room had a large, spacious bathroom and nice amenities. There were many options for breakfast, and everyone found something they liked! Our host was friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend the Barriemore for your visit to Oban!

Beautiful location overlooking the bay with rooms fronting water enjoying 180 degree water views. Charming guesthouse with our room recently renovated to a very high standard and immaculately maintained. Good choices for breakfast especially if you wanted a hot breaky.

Room Tip: Even though our suite (2B) was very large with large bathroom it did not have a bath tub. Some room...

A gracious old home on the waterfront. Delicious breakfast. Comfortable room. Value for money. A short walk from the house takes you to the heart of the small picturesque town. Need I say more? Oban is beautiful and our comfortable stay at Barriemore House made it the highlight of our Scotland trip.
