Thank-you Iona for arranging a beautiful room for two nights at incredibly short notice. Large top floor room (we're fit!) with outstanding views, super king comfy bed, big light filled bathroom......just perrrrfect. Breakfast was generous and tasty, can't fault it!

We feel that we should write & congratulate the owners and their staff after spending a very comfortable night at this guest house. The room was spotless, bathroom lovely and the complimentary sherry was a very nice touch. Breakfast was one of the best we have had with excellent service & very friendly staff. Lovely touch with linen napkins tied with tartan ribbon.
Would definitely stay again & would thoroughly recommend.

We stayed here last year and returned again this year as we enjoyed it so much.

Arrived at 1pm and was given keys to our large room (room 1) with king size bed and very spacious with sea view and was very comfortable.
Breakfast as usual was fantastic and a great choice of food from Iona & Gilbert.
Iona and staff all work very hard to keep the guest house in tip top shape and the complimentary sherry in the room is still a nice wee touch.
On our last day Iona gave our 3 year daughter a nice gift which made her holiday.

Will be returning again next year with our 2 new additions.

This was the B&B we found after arriving in Oban without have a prior booking. We were very happy here for 3 nights. The room was spacious and clean. The proprietor Iona was fun and helpful. The breakfasts were the best and the location perfect for a peaceful rest. Parking was easy with the large off the road parking space. We enjoyed the sunsets having a wine outside and would stay there again on our next holiday. The town of Oban is the perfect place to stay with all the outdoor activities you can do from this location. Thanks Iona.

Good location and the proprietor is fun and gracious. We reserved 2 sea view rooms on second floor and only one was available. She apologized and substituted a first floor side "suite" for one. The sea view room was fabulous in terms of comfort, style and view. The first floor room was below average. It was on the parking lot so noisy, bathroom was tiny and needed a good mildew bleaching and it lacked any style. She said it was partial sea view but that was only if you stuck your head out the window and looked around the corner. It did have a separate small sitting area but felt like a tiny efficiency apartment versus a room in an old house. Our bill was reduced by £10 which didn't matter, we wanted our other good room. Breakfast was very good.

Room Tip: Insist on upper floor sea view rooms but don't know how you guarantee it since we confirmed 10 d...

This was a lovely hotel to stay in. The twin room was new, fresh, clean and tidy with personal touches of tissues, nice toiletries, sherry in the room and generous supplies of tea and coffee. Friendly helpful service with large breakfast portions - I ended up having to ask for half portion size. A super stay in lovely Oban and I'll stay here again on future trips. Thanks!

Room Tip: The twin room at the back is part of a new extension and is super with outdoor seating outside.
