Lovely B&B, wish we could've stayed there longer than one night. We were lucky enough to get the family suite and it was wonderful. Excellent set up, comfy lounge, great views, lovely thick towels, bonus dressing gowns, complimentary fruit and drinks and a friendly host. Easy walk into town along the waterfront. What else could you want!!

Booked a three night stay at the Barriemore as part of our holiday to Arran and Mull and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The Barriemore is beautifully located on the Corran Esplanade, only about ten minutes walk from the Town Centre with spacious parking for all of the guests which is always a reassuring thought. The rooms are extremely...

The view out of our window of the port and ships sailing by could have been enough to recommend this gem of a B&B. Our room was tastefully decorated and thoughtfully laid out with all amenities provided. Beds were comfortable and breakfasts were fabulous. Easy walk everywhere. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

This is a very nice hotel on the very end of Oban's esplanade. We stayed in two rooms during our visit: a first floor king-sized room and a family suite. Both were comfortable and quiet but the first floor room overlooking the ocean had more character and was the better of the two. The owners have made very nice touches,...

My husband and I had a wonderful two night stay at the Barriemore. Jan was so welcoming and got us settled quickly. The guesthouse is well kept and the ensuite bedrooms are larger than you would expect. My favorite thing about this place is King beds are standard and the bathroom had a large soaking tub with a shower!! It's...

Only stayed 1 night but wish it was more!! Great room with fantastic views over the water. Complimentary whisky on arrival, and sherry and fruit in the room. Best breakfast in the UK. Hot smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, fruit, cereals, cold meats, herbal teas, pastries, the list goes on!

What a wonderful place! The staff are great - welcoming and helpful. Our room (#6 sea view) was spacious, immaculate, well supplied and had an amazing view of Oban and water traffic. Breakfast was hot and prompt with many choices. I am so glad we found this and want to return.
