Fabulous 8.8 From 46 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Great Oban stay.
Good place to stay. Close to ferry port and town. Continental breakfast but much to choose from. Lovely host, Christine, was on hand for any help required. Would definitely stay here again.

Poor 2.0
Terrible travel lodging experience
Not sure about the rest of the reviews, maybe our rooms were the outlier or maybe the quality has deteriorated quite significantly recently. We (luckily) had a booking for 1 night only. We reached the guest house at night and checked ourselves in since it was after hours. As we entered the room, there was perceptible dampness in the room and we noticed seepage on the walls. It was night time and we were tired from our travels, so we decided to ignore it. That would be fine if that were the end of it. In the middle of the night, my legs started itching quite badly. I turned on the lights and both my husband and I sat up. He said he was having a hard time sleeping too because of the constant itching. That's when we realized the beds had bed bugs. We removed the bed sheets, turned the mattress over, spread out towels on the bed and slept off. We managed to get a few more hours of sleep before waking up to the clanking of dishes in the kitchen. We woke up, got dressed, picked up our bags and went down. We tried explaining to the lady owner about what had happened, but she kept insisting that nobody else had ever faced that problem before so she doesn't believe that's a problem (what?) She also said that the rooms are soundproof (clearly not) so we shouldn't have gotten disturbed. Basically, she outrightly denied everything we experienced. Anyway, no matter what she did it wouldn't help solve our matters so we decided to cut our losses and leave.

Nice stay
We enjoyed our stay the couple who run it are very friendly and the breakfast was very nice. Only problem was the intermittent WiFi but that is beyond their control due to overhead cabling

Great location, and cozy stay.
Our stay was wonderful, and our host was so helpful. She had breakfast in our room everyday, and the location was beautiful. One of our favorite stays by far! We were on our honeymoon, and out of all the cities we visited, Oban was our favorite.
