“Would stay again....”
Reviewed 29 November 2013

We chose this House because of location - close to town and to the ferry (to Mull/Iona). Our room was reasonable size. Our host was most welcoming, especially noticing that we drove by twice and when he saw us, he showed us where to park -- right out front. We had an issue with a window and he came up within 2 minutes. An excellent breakfast was served the next morning.

I was told about Maridon by friends must say they were spot on. Excellent accomodation. I was staying myself for 2 nights and had single room (which i must say was more like a double) en suite and all mod cons available. James was very obliging and chatty. Breakfast is a must....cereal yogurt fruit juice then full cooked breakfast. Would definately stay here again very central excellent value

We stayed at the Maridon recently on an overnight stop when visiting relations in Oban and catching the early morning ferry to Lochboisdale. Our twin room was very comfortable and clean with a lovely en-suite bathroom. Sadly we missed the highly-reviewed cooked breakfast as we had to leave early but the dining room was open with a well-stocked fridge for those guests like us who had an early start, setting us up for the ferry trip across to South Uist.

James the proprietor is very welcoming and accommodating and even moved his car so we could park in pole position for our early start. The guest house is excellently placed, as well as being close to the train station and ferry to the isles, it's a quick walk to the seafront and the many restaurant options it offers. Excellent value.

Good value for money - friendly and helpful, James made us very welcome. Very good, freshly cooked, breakfast - lots of choice.
We had different twin rooms on two separate nights - although a little small they were nice and clean, bathrooms good size with showers. We were very comfortable. everything you need. Plus a car parking space!
Convenient and close to ferry port - perfect!

We have chosen this guest house because of its location just next to the ferry. If you plan to enjoy some islands trips this is really perfect place, just 5 minutes walk to ferry terminal. Double room was smaller but en suite with everything you need. Breakfast just perfect!! If visiting Oban again, would definitely stay again.

Reviewed 13 January 2013

We were travelling without a car and stayed here because it was near the station and ferry terminal. We had a room at the front with a side view of the sea, and a small ensuite. The room was a bit crowded with a rather large armchair, but it was clean and comfortable.

We had a good cooked breakfast the first morning, although the second morning we were leaving too early for the cooked main course. However, everything else was available, including tea and coffee, and yogurt and fresh strawberries, cereal, toast, etc; this was better than we expected and the owner was very helpful at all times.
