    Fantastic stay at Briarbank. We were in Oban to attend a family wedding at the Royal Hotel. The hosts were wonderful also allowing us early check in to enable us to get ready for our wedding. Very friendly and extremely helpful during what is an extremely stressful and cautious time for us all. All appropriate procedures and guidelines in place. A fantastic stay and would have no hesitation in recommending Briarbank although would advise caution for anyone who isn’t relatively fit as it is a climb up to the front door. All worthwhile though as there was a fantastic view from our room.

  • 8.0.Very good

    Property was handy for Oban Town Centre. Free parking available adjacent to property. Good breakfast and fridge in the room was useful. COVID precautions made for a safe feeling. Number of steps to the property so not suitable for some people. Chris , the proprietor was on site most of the day and very helpful and knowledgeable about local area.

    Lovely place to stay.

    Lovely place to stay steps up to the B&B but the view is worth it. Chris was a great host and looked after us well. The breakfast delivered to your room we liked. Nice walk into Town. We will be back.

    Clean & comfortable

    Very clean and tidy, bed a little hard for me but that’s personal preference. Very well organised during crazy times. Climb from car park to property a little exerting! Could do with a ski-lift, 😆
