We only stayed here overnight before catching the ferry. It was comfortable with all required facilities. The breakfast was delicious, and our host was friendly and helpful. Would stay here again if I ever get back to Oban!

We've stayed here many times and always had a warm welcome, it's clean and comfortable, has a good breakfast menu, off street parking and WiFi. It is handy for the ferry terminal, supermarket, filling station and just a short walk into town for shops and restaurants.

Kathmore guest house is a comfortable and homey place to stay for a night. Check-in was easy and Morven was very friendly. The breakfast, served with a welcoming smile, was delicious. The dining room is very sunny and the wait staff was a very friendly lady who checked on us often and kept our coffee pot full. We were able...

Great place to stay, you do have to walk for 10 minutes to get in to where the restaurants and bars are but a nice and safe area. Oban is great place, I did not have that much expectations from the city but it was a pleasant surprise.

My brother and I were made very welcoming, and an excellent breakfast the next morning. Certainly would stay here again on our next visit to Scotland. The Guest House was in easy walking distance into OBAN, and had plenty of car parking space at the rear.

Nice and cosy bed and breakfast. We enjoyed our stay. Friendly hosts and a great breakfast. Parking infront of the house. The guest house isn't exactly in the City center but we didn't have any problems to find a parking space in town. Oban is a cute town with great Fish and chips shops.
