Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Alltavona was a wonderful B&B. The owner Carol was very accommodating and welcoming from the start. The room was small but the bed was very comfortable. My husband and i were worried about getting the room right next to the breakfast room, but we didn't hear anything! It was a nice walk along the water to get to the...

On arrival, American guests were sitting in the garden sipping their complimentary whisky and sherry while enjoying this perfect location overlooking Oban Bay and the island of Kerrera with Mull beyond. What an idyllic setting! Carol, the owner, welcomed us. She is a warm, friendly person with quite a sense of humour and nothing is too much trouble. Our room...

The guest house is a short 10 minute walk away from the centre, along the scenic waterfront which makes it a nice quiet location. Paul and Carol were both very welcoming, friendly and extremely attentive. There...

We enjoyed the convenient location with a short walk to the town center for food, ferries and sightseeing. Since Alltavona was away from the busy main center, it was quiet. Breakfast was delicious. We didn't have a view of the bay but I saw one of the view rooms and it was outstanding! Carol and Paul were very welcoming. We...

Our family accommodations were booked by our tour so there was probably a miscommunication since my children actually include one adult. We could have easily had 2 regular rooms and hadn't requested connecting rooms. The property is lovely but we were shown to the new addition at the back of the house and had one room that was only big...
