Stayed in Thomas and Isabel's wonderful guest house for two nights - and could not find fault with anything. Arrived earlier on the Friday than had anticipated - Thomas was working in the garden and was genuinely apologetic - when it was our fault for arriving too early! As soon as we were into our room Thomas came and offered... More

I have great memories of our time last summer at this delightful place! The B & B is only a short walk from the station, but it is a steep climb and luckily our brief conversation with the very cheery taxi-driver helped us out about a couple of places to go, as well as being quite informative about local rivalries....

Stayed here for two nights whilst travelling about Scotland a bit. We were up for the Highland Cattle show and sale. Haven't stayed here before whilst in Oban but would again. Very friendly hosts, great breakfast, spotlessly clean. Bathroom is a bit small.

My wife and I spent a week in Scotland at verious hotels, inns, and B&Bs, and we both agree that Failte was the best experience. The room was nicely decorated, clean, and had a nice view. Trish was very helpful, even coming out to help us with parking. Breakfast was very nice.

My wife and I had only one night's stay here, and so wished we could have stayed longer.

This lovely B & B is up the hill from Oban's main street but it's only a few minutes' walk. The views are wonderful.

Warmest welcome to a charming, very comfortable home, central but quiet. A superb gourmet breakfast cooked to order - such a luxury after tired hotel buffets, plus wonderful home made jams. Tasteful décor, sparkling cleanliness, brilliant advice on excellent restaurants, when and what to visit in a stunning part of Scotland. Excellent value. We were sorry to leave.
