“Best breakfast”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

A wonderful place to stay. Very friendly and good rooms. The seating area in the garden is an added bonus. The breakfast is 5-star. Easily on a par with Good Food Guide restaurants. Highly recommended.

Well my husband said this was the best B&B he has been too! We have stayed in quite a few and therefore it must be good. Great hosts and very comfy rooms. We had the Regency room - stunning views. Large room, comfy bed and great access to the top of the town, around a 5-7 min walk.
Also off road parking which can be a real bonus.
Breakfast was lovely.
Would stay here again!

Lovely hotel very friendly great breakfasts. Comfy spacious rooms. Easy walk into Oban would highly recommend. The views overlooking Oban bay are lovely and it is so nice to have an outside seating area to just soak up the sun and relax. A very quiet hotel perfect for a relaxing break.

Room Tip: If possible sea view although they all have lovely views.

What an excellent B & B. The warm welcome, cleanliness, comfortable quiet room and very good breakfast. Very convenient for the town and port.
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay recommend to anyone who is in the area.

Arrival experience: Morvan, the proprietress, greeted us warmly. We arrived prior to the designated check-in time, and Morvan welcomed us.

Room (general): Our room was on the top floor (perhaps room #7). It was quaint with sloped ceiling over one of the twin beds.

Bathroom: Small but clean.

Bed: small twin beds.

Housekeeping: very clean.

Restaurants: on-site breakfast included with room, but no other meals offered. Breakfast was excellent. .

Bar: n/a.

Grounds: pleasant garden in the front of the house overlooking scenic Oban.,

Pool: n/a

Staff attitude/service: awesome

Parking: free on site parking

Misc: The view from our room was excellent. Morvan is jewel! I recommend taking a gift for Morvan for her hospitality (you'll feel like a cad if you don't).

This guest house is excellent and conveiniant for location.

Rooms very comfortable, I was in the twin room which is on a elevated position. The view was very nice.

Guest house owner morven is fab, if I was staying in Oban I wouldn't stay anywhere else it's that good.

Will def be returning at somepoint.

Hawthornbank is well located and a short walk takes you to George Street in Oban. Very well run guest house with everything you could possibly want. Was in the twin room on the top floor which is spacious with its own seating area. The room was clean with comfortable beds. Great views over Oban bay from the slightly elevated location.

Morven is a great host and breakfasts were as good as I've had anywhere. Well deserving of the four star Tourist Board rating. When in Oban I would choose to stay here, simple.
