Hawthornbank Guest House
Ranked #15 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed our stay at the guest house. Morven, Robert and dog Bonnie were excellent hosts. Their attention to detail to make our stay enjoyable was exemplary.
The guest house is in a very convenient location with a short stroll down a lane way to the town centre. Oban and the guest house was a very beautiful place to stay.

We have stayed here 3 times now. What a great find. A reasonably priced B&B with decent parking is hard to find in Oban, but this has free off road parking which is a bonus. Morven is so friendly and makes you feel welcome from the minute you arrive. The house is beautifully decorated and the rooms are lovely, with great attention to detail. All the little extras, such as a bowl of sweets, bottled water, hand lotion, herbal tea - the list goes on. The breakfast is perfect. So much choice, with fresh fruit, croissants, yogurts, and a list of cooked breakfast choices. Nothing is too much bother, and Morven makes it a very relaxing experience. We'll be back.

Morven and Robert are excellent hosts and make you feel welcome and at home the minute you arrive. They are very friendly and accommodating and willing to help. The guesthouse is well furnished with everything you need in the room. It is kept very clean by Morven who cleans the rooms daily. There are lovely little extras in the rooms too, like tea and coffee with biscuits, a bottle of water and sweets, which are replenished each day, along with toiletries. The breakfast is wonderful and you order each night so that in the morning you arrive at your table with your breakfast being brought to you straight away. The breakfast room is lovely and has a wonderful view over the harbour.

The location of the BnB is fantastic, just a 5 minute walk from the town centre, but away from all the hustle and bustle to get a quiet night sleep.

We would like to say a HUGE thank you to Morven and Robert for making our stay so very special.

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.
