Booked in here overnight before catching a ferry the next day. The host, Thomas, was exceptionally helpful putting my bicycle away and helping with my bags. The single room (no. 1) was quite small but clean and well-equipped. Probably the best aspect of Failte is the superb breakfast. A huge choice, immaculately presented. It's centrally located, a short walk to the waterfront and a wide range of restaurants and pubs. Failte also has its own parking area.

My wife and I have just stayed three nights at Failte and I wanted to say what a wonderful stay it was. My wife and I travel a fair bit for work but Covid has meant we have done little travelling together for holiday reasons so I had researched where to stay based around many reviews and awards and was delighted to be able to stay here. We were staying in Oban for just three days but they were very full days with walking tours and early starts for day trips with Basking Shark and Sealife Adventures..This meant a fair bit of arranging with Thomas and all his communication was prompt , precise and very helpful. This made our stay run smoothly as he kindly arranged packed lunches and an early breakfast. The accomodation itself is of a very high standard indeed but for me it was a superb balance of quality , special details and a relaxing stay that made it all fantastic. Thomas is a wonderful host and he and his wife have managed to add little extras that make the stay so great. I won't spoil the surprise s for people but homemade items at breakfast , delicious chocolates in the room , a comfortable room with lovely bedding all make this a dream bed and breakfast stay . I found Thomas to be charming and attentive without being invasive in anyway (as some hosts can be) and I would highly recommend staying if you can get a vacancy. I wish Thomas and his wife continued success .

Wonderful, attentive service. Clean, modern rooms with lovely details including the chocolate! Could not have done more for us, wish we should have stayed both nights with you! Beautiful garden, lovely to be up on the hill but close to the centre to meet family & have a few drams!

I was cycling across Britain with 23 others and I stayed one night in Failte. My first impression was of a very welcoming and professional host. Thomas showeed me to my room and explained how everything worked (eg outside switch for heated towel rail etc) and then asked me if I would like a pot of tea and some Scottish shortbread. After cycling 75 miles you can guess my reply. whilst unpcking I noticed how spotlessly clean and pristine everything was. Thomas returned with my rerfreshments and asked if I'd like fresh milk for the morning - which he then brought up and placed in my fridge. Unfortunately I didn't have breakfast there as we had an early ferry but I'd rate this as a 5* guest house. The only downside was having to cycle up a steep hill to get to Failte, but that allowed me a lovely view across Oban harbour so it was not all bad.

This bed and breakfast is in a different class to anything I have seen before in Oban. Everything from the welcome to the room to the breakfast was first class. The room was fresh and clean and immacukate in presentation, with lovely views, the tea and coffee faciities, toileteries etc in rooom the equivalent to a 5 star hotel. Nice touches like a chocolate by the bed etc. the breakfast also first class with the highest standard of quality produce and cooking as well as exceptional buffet of exquisite cheeses and fresh fruit and cereals and muesli etc. all in all very memorable and quality experience. Well done to the kind owners for their exceptional attentiveness and nice manner. David and Karin
