    Clea, comfortable and welcoming

    We were made to feel very welcome on arrival. Our room was at the front of the house on the main road, and our initial worries that it might be noisy proved unfounded and we both slept soundly. The portions at breakfast were generous and we were looked after well. The room itself was comfortable and very clean. I would definitely recommend the property to others.

    Well worth the visit

    Overall a very good stay, good value and a nice central location. Breakfast had a decent choice and was well cooked. Our hosts were friendly and very helpful. One slight downside was the narrowness of our bed in what was otherwise a well appointed and quiet room. Our first night was a bit of a struggle as we were not used to such a narrow bed. However, we managed to work it out a bit better the second night and all was fine.

    Great stay at Kathmore

    You are made to feel at home as soon as you arrive. Accommodation is very clean and breakfast is excellent. The room we had was compact but fine for our 2-night stay. Morven and Keith are super-passionate hosts and certainly go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. Would certainly recommend and hopefully will return one day to do more exploring in this wonderful part of the country.

    A great stay to take the Covid blues away

    2 night stay visiting Oban and a sailing over to Mull for the day. I stay in many types of accommodation in my job and this is by far one of the best if you want a warm welcoming friendly environment, feel like we have stayed there for years. The room we had (8) was super clean and fresh with all the homely touches you want to expect. To mirror other comments Well impressed with sanitisers And the COV19 cleaning programmes it made our stay safe and stress free. We had an early ferry on day 1 and received a full packed lunch in place of breakfast to take with us, again those little touches made our stay. Also when we returned we had a cleaned room with fresh milk ready, brilliant Good off road safe parking, close to centre 5mins walk and is by far the must place to stay in Oban. Great stay defo stay again

    1st break without children in years!!

    We had a lovely stay in Oban that was completed with our super accommodation. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, warm, lovely breakfast and very welcoming host Morven. We would stay here again and happily recommend it. 10 minute walk from the town centre which is perfect.
