“Beautiful guesthouse, amazing views...”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

My partner and I stayed here for a three days back in September, after it being recommended by another guesthouse owner that was fully booked. We were certainly not disappointed - our room was huge, had been recently decorated, featured a very comfortable super king size bed and not least an amazing view of Oban bay through the bay window.

The guest-house staff were really welcoming, especially the lady at breakfast.

There is free parking on site, and it is only a short stroll into the town centre, where some pubs and restaurants were on offer.

If ever in Oban again, I would definitely stay here!

Room Tip: Ask for a superior room….

We stayed here for 2 nights and I would highly recommend it. The rooms have recently been totally refurbished and they are completed to a very high standard with lots of very nice, thoughtful, touches - in fact it was so nice I nearly didn't want to go out for my evening meal! ...and the view from the bay window would be hard to beat anywhere in the world. The bigger rooms are nicer than the small room - but there is definitely nothing wrong with any of them. Huge bed (that is very comfortable), flat screen tv, sherry in the decanter, lots of little thoughtful extras - in the large room we even got a complimentary towelling robe. Breakfast was excellent - beautifully presented and it tasted fantastic too. The owner and staff were very helpful in answering questions about the surrounding area and how to get to other places - and their advice was good and easy to follow. They really put themselves out to help us and accomodate our requests - way above the call of duty. This Guest House punches well above its weight and I would not hesitate to recommend it any visitor. Well worth the money!! ...and the centre of Oban and the ferry terminal are well within walking distrance.

Reviewed 19 September 2013

I decided to pay extra to have a room with a loch view at Mackays and it was so worth it! The room had recently been redecorated and was beautiful, it was a large room with a great size shower. There were 2 large armchairs by the bay window for sitting and enjoying the beautiful view of the large loch. Only a short walk to town and the breakfast and owners were fabulous!
