“A vivist from Vancouver BC Canada”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

We can highly recommend this Guest House as we have just spent some time there. It was warm and welcoming when you walked in. John and Irene are very professional as well as pleasant and friendly. The house was spotless, the rooms were very pleasant and the beds so comfortable. The food was delicious and the service was terrific. Nothing was any bother to them. We will definitely go there again and will certainly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Room 11 was very quiet and we enjoyed the fact it had an ensuite.

Just returned from our annual Bridge weekend in Oban and were fortunate this year to get back into Strathnaver as last year it was fully booked - and no wonder. Irene and John make you feel so welcome,the bedrooms are spotless and nicely decorated, very good breakfast and most comfortable lounge which we used quite a bit.
Hope to be back again next year.

Excellent stay at Strathnaver, John and Irene made us feel so welcome. Rooms spotlessly clean and spacious. Great choice for breakfast, even for my 2 fussy children! Definitely stay again, easily the best in town!

We have stayed here many times and from the beginning have always been impressed with the friendly welcome in this professionally run establishment. The rooms are very comfortable with plenty hot water and all the things one would expect in a B &B plus more.
Breakfast has a good choice, with some self service for cereals, juice, yoghurt & cheese. Hot food is freshly cooked to order. I would certainly recommend the porridge with its little jug of cream - beautiful. Food is presented well too.
Delightful lounge with views out to the Bay, where you can see the ferries arriving & departing. An added bonus is the free parking for many cars - I've never had a problem parking here.
Irene & John will welcome you & ensure you have a marvellous stay.

Highly impressed- spacious and very clean rooms and excellent choice at breakfast. Irene and John are the perfect hosts- they make you feel at home and even offered us a lift into town when it was raining!
Exactly what you want/ need when staying in a B&B. I'll definitely be back.

Have stayed here for a number of years and it keeps getting better and better. Highly recommend the Strathnaver and have done so on many occasions. Irene and John can't do enough to help. Well worth a visit.

A warm and hospitable place to stay. Irene & John made us most welcome, the room was just right for our needs, a lovely view over the bay and close to the town for eating out. The guest lounge was spacious. Very happy to recommend this place to anyone travelling through or staying at Oban, we will certainly stay again on our next trip. The little extras and personal touch and advice was most appreciated by my wife and I. Parking is easy to access and with heavy luggage, John was most obliging in getting us settled in. Breakfast choice was a fine start for a long day of travelling.
