My husband and I went to Oban for the first time and the Kilchrenan House was amazing. It's right on the water, walking distance to the old clansman castle and museum, and downtown Oban. The breakfast was great - the hot breakfast options are to die for and there's always a continental buffet as well. We will definitely be back.

We have just returned from a great week at Oban staying once again at the Wonderful Kilchrenan Hotel. We cannot thank Colin and Frances enough for the warm welcome we received once again (our third visit) The hotel is spotlessly clean and the varied breakfast sets you up for the day. Also a special thanks to Catherine who looked after...

A very welcoming and comfortable small hotel within easy walking distance of the town centre. Rooms well equipped and very clean and comfortable. We stayed in room 4, at the front of the building with superb views down the Sound of Kerrera. The only negative I could see is that there is no public lounge - which might be a...

Don't know where to start...from the moment we walked through the door...to the end of our three night stay, we were made so welcoming into this stunning Guest House.

My wife and I have stayed here many times and have never had a bad experience.

The Kilchrenan House is just a short distance from the Oban city center. Many people walk into town, I preferred the taxi. It was about a $5 ride to anyplace in Oban. My room did not have a sea view although it was a decent view out through the trees on the back side of the House. The rate was...

We had a wonderful stay at the Kilchrean House. The room was very comfortable and within walking distance to Oban. The staff was very helpful when we arrived with directions to the Oban Distillery to make our late afternoon tour.

My third visit to this B & B and it is still brilliant. The owners cannot do enough to make you comfortable ans at ease. If possible get a room on the front and lie in bed watching the fishing boats and the Caledonian Mac Brayne ferries shuttling back and forth to the islands. Breakfast is a1 and the rooms...

From the welcoming dram of whisky to the farewell, the stay couldn't have been better. The accommodation is ideally situated on the seafront overlooking the harbour and close to the town centre. The room was very clean & comfortable with the usual facilities (tea/coffee etc.) and the breakfast was very impressive, the "full Scottish" on the first morning and scrambled...

We needed accommodation at short notice when our ferry to Colonsay was cancelled, and this hotel was perfect. 2 lovely rooms, a friendly welcome and an excellent recommendation for dinner (Piazza) meant that what could have been a frustrating delay in our holiday turned into an added bonus. Throw in a tasty breakfast and flexible breakfast timings and what more...
