Nice, clean guest house, centrally located. Breakfast was mainly cold and pre-packed offerings but there were eggs (boiled and scrambled) available. Hosts were friendly and helpful, good value for money.

Centrally located Bed and Breakfast with off street parking. Proprietors were both very friendly. Ample selection of food for continental breakfast. Room clean and comfortable. Only drawback was our room was at top of three flights of stairs. I would definitely book in here for any future visit to Oban

A well-located B&B with off street parking and a helpful host. The self service breakfast was made up mainly of packaged produce. The bedroom and bathroom and wifi were adequate. We found the mattress rather lumpy.

Stayed for one night, and was very pleased with the location---nice walk to George Street. Off street parking, clean rooms (thank you for keeping it fragrance-free for me!!) and welcoming hosts. Five stars for all!! One star off rating for service because the buffet breakfast was too much pre-packaged food, so we went to George Street and had freshly made...

I didn't know until we arrived but the Guest House was ran by a husband and wife team. Nothing was too much trouble and would go back again when staying in Oban. The...

Ideal base to visit Oban and the surrounding area. On site parking is a great benefit. The location is close to the centre of Oban and the waterfront, the 4 minute walk is on flat ground. The rooms are clean and adequate size and the breakfast choice and quality are superb. Booking and checkout were friendly and useful local advice...

The host was nice. The location was central @ town. 10 min walk to the Pier so that we can catch up the early tour to Staffa. The room was clean and comfort. The breakfast had wide variety of fruits, which was very nice.
