Thanks so much to Thomas and Isabel. I received a warm welcome in this lovely old b&b. The room was spotless, there was a little fridge with fresh milk for coffee, and nice little touches like a razor, chocolates, and the offer of shortbread. There is some interesting original art and lovely fresh lilies in the hall. Breakfast was superb;...

My husband and I stayed at Failte for one night as we passed through Oban. Thomas was incredibly welcoming, carried our bags up to our beautiful, bright double room and offered tea and shortbread right off the bat. Can't complain about that! The bed and the room were very comfortable and we wished we'd stayed a little longer to enjoy...

We stayed for three nights in May 2016. First night in a pretty small room on the main level, then in a much larger room with a view for the next two nights. We really liked the bigger room. Clean, quiet, comfortable bed, always available street parking, free WIFi, and a very good breakfast. It's a bit of a hoof...

The warmest welcome. A family feeling. Clean, comfortable, excellent healthy breakfast. Thomas and Isabel so helpful. They even packed a breakfast for our early departure. Isabel's paintings inspiring. A short walk downhill to the harbour and McCaig's Tower only a few minutes away.

Great B&B we'll run by enthusiastic host who cannot do enough to help. Set up a hill so once parked up, prepare for a little exercise to and from the property down into the town but your effort is well rewarded! Lovely town, loads of choice to eat and drink, with breathtaking views over the harbour. Wifi is available in...

The Failte B&B is a lovely place. We stayed here for three nights and felt very comfortable. Each day began with a wonderful breakfast (from cereals, fresh bread, fresh fruit to full scotish breakfast). The rooms are very small but nicely decorated. From the B&B it is a short walk to Craigs Tower and also to the town center and...

Me and girlfriend had a wonderful stay at the Failte Bnb. Tom was very hospitable and really made us feel welcome. The location of the house was very good, with a splendid view and just a short walk to the centre of the town. We especially appreciated the breakfast.
