We were lucky to get rooms here on the weekend in what we were told more than once was an unusually busy and long season. Corriemar Guest House is within walking distance of many Oban attractions and restaurants, and with a great view of the bay. I took dozens of pictures out the window during our 2 days there. It...

Avoid this hotel!! Not a good place - difficult to contact them but finally we spoke and I made a booking. However, the moment you arrive the owner seeks full payment up-front. it is quite overwhelming to have the demand for money before you even see the room. Although this is probably sensible from her point of view, as I... More

When we arrived, we were met by a lady who I assumed was the owner, who seemed most interested in getting us to register and pay. We were then directed, not shown, to our room. We didn't speak to her for the remainder of our 2 night stay. The twin room was clean and of a reasonable size. The view... More

The town is lovely & the location of this guest house is very good. That's why I'm giving it 2 stars. Rating just the breakfast or the room, one star. Oban has many, many choices. Don't make the same mistake we did. Find a better guest house or hotel.

The location was perfect - short walk into town with great views of the bay. The staff was courteous, but not overly friendly or helpful and the room we had was tiny with an uncomfortable bed and a miniscule shower. On the positive side, the breakfast was first rate and the other guests were very friendly.

Late check in time and limited on-site parking are the only drawbacks to this lovely guest house. There is however free on street parking out the front. Rooms comfortable and well presented. Breakfasts are good - especially the haggis and kippers. Owner and staff friendly. GREAT views over the water and an easy walk into town. Wifi can be slow... More

We spent last night at Corriemar Guest House. We had a beautiful deluxe room with view of the harbor and island and hills across the bay. The staff were warm, welcoming, and the accommodation, first rate. The bed was a bit squeaky, but we quickly fell asleep and enjoyed a good night's rest. Breakfast was bountiful and they were able...
