“Efficent and friendly bed and breakfast”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Stayed one night with two rooms. This B&B has loads of parking and one of the best breakfast selections we'd seen in our 7 night trip around the highlands. Very friendly serving staff. It was a pleasure to be here. Only downside was our room (12) was on the third floor and on the smaller side but the free WIFI was excellent.

Me and my girlfriend stayed here three nights in july and did the same thing last year.
Iona welcomed us warmly as usual.
The good thing about this b&b is within walking distance form town, the room ustairs have a great sea view. The beds are good and breakfast good.
I like the big size rooms with the sea view.
If you need any information about Oban, Iona will find it for you. She is the kindness herself, and it makes us come back next year as well.

Room Tip: 2nd floor room with sea view.

I chose Glenrigh initially because of the on site parking. My partner is very keen on views and so I booked a room with a sea view. This caused me to react when we were shown to room 3 at the side of the building overlooking the car park - but it does indeed have a view over the bay.
Breakfast was excellent and the staff both friendly and efficient. The complimentary sherry was a nice touch (the whisky even better). Our room was nicely decorated and while there was a slight feeling of exposure being on the ground floor any net curtains would have spoilt the view.
Hoping to return next year and perhaps experience one of the rooms at the front of the building!

This is a decent guesthouse that is just outside, but within walking distance, of town.
I'd describe it as a 2-3 star facility, fine for casual travel with the family.
The rooms work but are a bit dated. Breakfast was good.

Stayed here for 3 nights with my family and loved every minute of our stay. Iona,Gilbert and the staff pull out all the stops to make you feel at home and welcome.Nice touches as well like sherry decanters in the rooms and whiskey decanter in the hall to help yourselves to. Breakfast has the best choice I have ever had at a guest house before and all the food is quality produce.
We were in room 8 which was big enough with a lovely view of Oban Bay with a great super king size bed. Next time we would ask for room 9 as it was slightly bigger.
Will definitely be back.

Dougie,Anne Marie & wee Eilidh.

Room Tip: Rooms 8 or 9.Great views.

There is just one disappointment with this Guest House. It is not possible to rate it better than EXCELLENT. My wife and I spend a travelling break here,occupying Room 8 on the 9th. of July this year. A lovely view from the large windows over the Bay. Very nicely furnished, and nicely furnished throughout. We were even provided with a complimentary decanter of sherry in the room for our pre-dinner drink . We set off the following morning after the heartiest of breakfasts.
If we were to be in the area again we would most definitely stay here again.
We cannot understand anyone finding any complaints at all with regard to the standards of this Guest House.

Room Tip: Speak to Iona

Iona gave us a lovely welcome after our long drive from London, the rooms were beautiful and pristine with everything we needed.
Our ground floor room was spacious with a nice big shower and huge windows but sadly no net curtain so the room has little privacy from the car park, (here I must apologise to the man sitting outside the hotel opposite drinking his early morning tea who I accidentally flashed!)
The breakfast was amazing, my daughter had the fresh fruit pancakes which looked spectacular.
We only stayed for one night before our trip to the western Isles but if I were staying longer in Oban I would definitely stay here.

Room Tip: The ground floor sea view room is a beautiful room but don't walk out of the en-suit butt naked!
