“absolutely superb”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

We were directed to this B&B when it turned out that we could not extend our stay at the lovely Dunheanish. And what a fabulous surprise it turned out to be. Morven is an amazing and most receptive host. The rooms are absolutely first rate with nice amenities and lots of personal touches, breakfast truly exceptional, wifi excellent, location very good (though with less of a view than Dunheanish), off street private parking available,

If only all landladies could be like Morven. Bubbly, ace welcome, helpful, and so friendly. Accommodation clean, great, quiet position, breakfast scrummy. Dalraich Rd a bit tricky to navigate to but easy when you've cracked it. 5 minutes from ferry port. Can't fault it.

My husband and I would have normally stayed around Oban Esplanade, however this was a last minute Easter weekend break for us and we were lucky to get such a lovely Guest House. When we arrived at the Guest House we were very pleased with the location, a short downhill walk which only took 5 minutes to the town centre, and if you fancied a swim then you had a 2 minute walk to the sport centre from the back of the house. The room was very comfortable with a sea view and a secluded garden to soak up the sun. Morven and Robert were a lovely couple, especially Morven, she was a great hostess and made us very welcome when we arrived and throughout our stay. I would definitely recommend this guest house for travellers visiting Oban.

We have just returned from a two night stay at this guest house. The room we had overloooked the harbour and was large and very comfortable. Morven was a great hostess and I would definately recommend this guest house for an enjoyable stay in Oban

Room Tip: Pay a little extra and get a room at the front of the house

We had a lovely visit to Oban, made all the more lovely by our stay here. The building is conveniently located for walking about town, and is beautifully and lovingly decorated and attended. Our view over the harbor was lovely, the breakfast and breakfast room really nice, and Morvan the owner gave us lots of good advice for places to go for other meals and site seeing. She gave us good advice regarding our further travels on to Glasgow and Edinborough too. Friendly and gracious host, relaxing and comfortable guest house. We really recommend this for travellers to Oban!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a harbor view, if possible!

This was a last minute booking, we had a funeral in mull the next day. Morvan was very helpful, putting an extra bed ins twin room so myself and 2 daughters could all be together. She was very helpful re places to eat. Location is very convenient, a short downhill walk to the centre. Breakfast was relaxed bit offered a good quality choice. Would be a great base for a couple of days.
