Nice place on the outskirts of Oban, but a bit of an (uphill) hike back from town if you decide to go in on foot. Very pleasant owners and all nice and clean. Room and ensuite bathroom were both small - although the shower was really excellent. Breakfast was ok, continental only, but with the offer of egg on toast and a rasher of bacon if you wanted it. Why not go all in and offer a full cooked breakfast (there may be a reason - I'm merely asking)? The owners were kind enough to provide us with a packed takeaway breakfast when we had to leave early one day and we had a nice enough stay

Spotlessly clean B& B a good 20 minute walk from Oban centre. Assume our room wasn’t serviced because of Covid We had to ask for extra teabags and milk after we used the 4 teabags on Day 1 & request a toilet roll as there was no spare provided in the tiny en-suite shower room.

Another great stay at Elderslie at very short notice. Jacintha and Gerard were fantastic and sorted out Room 7 for me which is a lovely twin room with a very comfy bed and cozy duvet. I had a great night’s sleep - it’s so peaceful at Elderslie even though it’s only a short walk to the centre of Oban. I didn’t have time for breakfast but had a perfect cup of tea, which was just what I needed. Thank you so much - you were brilliant. See you again soon.

Welcomed before we reached the door and was guided to a parking space. Lovely hosts. Room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was continental but was offered a bacon roll or scrambled egg and salmon. They were excellent hosts and if we had required anything else they would have obliged.

The accomodation was very comfortable and the bed provided a good sleep. There was a nice en suite too. You would need a car to get here as it is a fair hike from the town centre. I found the walk fine in the summer when I went for dinner but it would be a bit grim if the wether was not good. This is not a criticism of the place but a heads up to people interested in staying.
