Maridon Guest House
Ranked #33 of 94 Oban B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 April 2012

i have just returned from my one day shopping in Oban...i live on Colonsay and i was very happy of the thought i can go and come back by ferry in the same day...so took a large suitcase and went to Tesco for almost everything to shop....unfortunatelly, i have missed the ferry with only minutes, and there i am, with a masive bag full of food, not knowing where to turn. luckily, somebody pointed the "blue house up the hill" and agreed to stay for the night. the gentlman- sorry did not take any names- kindly took a large part of my shoppings and stored it in there own fridge. i had a lovely room, very modern and comfortable, with a lovely colour scheme...the shower was great- great pressure of water and nice good quality toiletries and towels...everything was sparkling clean...it was a short stay and not planned at all, but i was enjoing it so much, i went back to Tesco and bought myself a new pyjama and a fluffy dressing gown..i have also bought more food which i regreted the next morning!.the bed was very comfortable, so after a nice cup of tea and a half of a film, i was fast asleep. i had a full breakfast - probably the best i have tried up to now! i have worked in the hotel business for almost 8 years now, and when i say it i mean it!
i was ready to go and my worries started to grow as i understood it will be very hard for me to carry all the staff to the ferry - after the only one day shopping i've ended up with a massive suitcase i could barely move, a shoulder bag and a large carrier bag...the gentlman who runs the bussines, same who helped me a day before with the "fridge" problem, kindly offered to help and drived me and all my heavy things to the pier check in point...after all, the stressful and chanlenging trip turned into a very enjoyable one and for this i would like to say THANK YOU for all your help and hospitality. i will recommend the "blue house" and i will be back, next time with my husband and for pleasure only.

A very pleasant B&B, especially for the price. As it was quiet, the owner offered us a choice of room. The room was clean and comfortable (with a good selection of biscuits!). It is in a quiet corner of Oban, really close to the ferry terminal but only a few minutes walk from the main shops and restaurants. Being able to park right outside was also very welcome. We left very early for the ferry so the cooked breakfast wasn't available, but there was a good selection of cereals, yoghurts and fruit. It was an ideal place for an overnight stop for an early ferry.

We stayed 3 days at the MGH, the proprietors were great, lot's of local knowledge they were willing to share..the room and bathroom were clean and the bed was comfortable. Really good value for the price!

Room Tip: Any room is good as they are off the main road and on a quiet street.

We found the hospitality, food and family room to be of a good standard. The room itself was very comfortable and homely and my daughters particularly liked the bunk beds. The rooms etc were very clean and warm and the breakfast was really good. We liked the proximity to the ferry terminal and got good local advice from the owner.
Wish we had stayed longer and we will be back. Many thanks to all.

Stayed in the Maridon Guest House from 21st July for 3 nights bed and breakfast. No complaints at all with our stay our room was nice and clean our shower worked a treat and the breakfast was excellant and a great day to start the day. The parking in Oban is a bit tricky so the private parking at the Maridon was a nice bonus. It is a 5 minute stroll to the lovely town of Oban. It is very convenient to the ferry port and train station. We were both very impressed with the Maridon Guest House it is excellant value for money and we will be back here to stay next time we are in Oban.

Room Tip: Great location for ferry and train services no car required

This b and b has a lot of rooms and is very much a business rather than a family home with rooms. Having said that our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast was excellent and our wet clothes were kindly put through the tumble dryer.
It's proximity to the ferry means that some early risers stay here. It is absolutely no fault of the owners but we were disturbed by a selfish family at 5.30 am who departed at 6am having probably woken all but the heaviest sleepers. It should not have to be necessary but maybe those who are leaving early for the ferry could be asked not to make too much noise?

We stayed here years ago when the place was under different management. Since then the bedrooms and public areas have been renovated and redecorated to a higher standard. Breakfast was better, too, with everything from a Full Scottish spread to muesli or yogurt or fruit.

We arrived late because of train connections, but were warmly greeted at the door and shown to our room. With reservations on Mull for the following night, our stay at Maridon House was brief but very pleasant. We would recommend it to anyone wanting a reasonably priced lodging convenient to Scotrail and CalMac ferries.
