Road trip
I am on a road trip with my husband so only stayed in Oban for two nights before moving on. House beautiful and location perfect. Extremely clean throughout and a delicious breakfast. Best porridge we have ever tasted. We were however disappointed with the size of the room . It was en suite but the bedroom itself had nowhere to put anything. We glanced into next door bedroom and noticed it was much larger. Would make sure we had a larger room if we returned there in the future

Lovely accommodation
The hosts were just lovely and welcoming. We wanted to extend our stay for another 2 nights but they were fully booked. We were greatly thankful for their helping find another accommodation. Definately recommend staying here. Everything was perfect.

A fine stay in a fine place
Beautiful boutique B&B, staff very friendly and breakfast good. 10 minutes walk to central Oban. Parking available but a little tricky.

Lovely room, with a lovely view, watching the ferries coming and going. Quiet location, rooms too, excellent breakfast selection, and only a 15 minute walk to shops and restaurants.

Great Choice
A thoroughly enjoyable one night stay on our return journey from a wedding further North. Quirky, comfortable accommodation. The room with en-suite shower room was compact but perfectly adequate. Generous breakfast with a stunning view over the seafront.

Gem of a place.
Lovely little place. All rooms individually decorated. Amazing breakfast with lots of fresh berries. The owner was super friendly and helpful.

Great place
Due to an error with a un-named hotel down the street, we didn't end up having a reservation when we showed up. Thankfully Alltavona did and we ended up with a lovely room with a view out onto the bay. Probably better than the big hotel down the road! The host was wonderful and the breakfast was on point.
