The Old Manse House is a lovely old house with comfortable and well equipped rooms. Katie the owner is the most helpful person who couldn’t have tried harder to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. There was a great selection of foods for breakfast and homemade goodies for a teatime treat. Thank you for your generous hospitality and sharing your lovely house.

We had such a warm welcome from Anna and Simon when we arrived, with Anna welcoming us with coffee and biscuits in the garden. Our room was spotless, comfortable and quiet, overlooking Oban Bay. Breakfast was delicious, with daily changing specials as well as a fully cooked breakfast. Anna and Simon were wonderful hosts, always cheerful and helpful, and providing advice on eateries, excursions, etc, even before we arrived. The location of the B&B was lovely with lovely views over the Bay and it was less than 10 minutes from the Train station and ferry terminal. If arriving by public transport ask Anna and Simon how to access the B&B via the back garden, as easier to access if one has lots of luggage. We want to thank Anna and Simon for such a lovely stay.

A little gem. An excellent B&B situated at the top of a hill overlooking Oban harbour and with amazing views across to Mull. Watch the ships go past and the setting sun. Breakfast was superb with daily specials, lashings of tea ( or coffee) and toast and amusing conversation. The hosts, Anne and Simon have put a great deal of effort into their business and it shows. Nothing is too much trouble. Spot on service.

Lovely greeting off Simon on arrival. We booked a family room for the four of us and it turned out we to be a double room for us and a separate twin room for our teenage daughters. All behind or locked door. The rooms were spacious and the beds very comfy. There was plenty of tea, coffee, milk and biscuits in our rooms. We even had a small decanter of sherry, a very nice touch. The breakfast was delicious and freshly prepared by Simon's wife Anna. There was even a specials board that our girls enjoyed with pancakes and waffles. We where so glad we booked to stay here. Thoroughly recommend.
